Good Enough for What I PaidPosted Jun 12, 2014 on Hotels.com
The staff there are very friendly and helpful. The cleanliness and comfort of the room/bed are better than expected. But of course don't expect too much. You got what you paid for. All I needed was clean room/bed to sleep for 2 nights. I love the surrounding neighbourhood. It's close to Sarphati market. And there is a street market nearby.

Nice part of town, awful hostelPosted May 13, 2014
Pros: It's in a nice part of town
Cons: The bathrooms NEED to be redone. And they should take credit cards.
Location: Really close to the Musemplein area. Quiet area that was peaceful but also not a lot to do right by it.
You walk in and it's tiny. Then I got put downstairs with no lift to take all my luggage down. The room seemed fine except the bedding on inspection seemed dirty and is really old. There were only a few plugs for the 8 person room. The bathroom was tiny and covered in mold. It smelled awful. The kitchen area was available but not when needed. The bed was uncomfortable. I went in expecting nothing from this hostel because of other reviews, and left wishing I had paid the almost 100 euros to stay somewhere else.

You get what you pay for...or not?Posted Jun 1, 2013 on Hotels.com
Personally, for the service I received, I think I paid too much. I paid for a 6-person dorm. The rooms are small and cramped, which is okay (except when you have a top bunk and two beds are pushed together end-to-end; there are no ladders), and there is absolutely no soundproofing - you'll hear your fellow hostelers in the halls, on the balconies, and in the bathrooms. As a 6-person room, we had our own bathroom, which was kept mostly clean, though its wear definitely showed and it's very basic.... (Bring shower shoes.) "Breakfast" was a choice: toast or a PB&J and coffee or tea. That was it. I've seen waaaay better in less expensive hostels. The location is actually pretty good. It's in a neighborhood where I had no problems - it just takes about 20 minutes to get to from Centraal Station (Tram #25 directly). Otherwise, you can hop the tram to anywhere you need to go. I stayed for 3 nights, and that's about all I could handle anyway. It was okay, but I wouldn't stay there again.

Sarphati Hotel - next to Sarphati ParlPosted Mar 10, 2011 on Hotels.com
Good, clean hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Location next to a tram stop is ideal and there are other tram stops nearby if the 25 or 3 are not the routes you need. Easy and quick to get in to town and to the main attractions such as the museums. You won't be hungry after the buffet breakfast, and you can help yourself to tea/coffee and fruit any time, which is a bonus. Not as centrally located as some but we didn't find that a problem. There are bars/restaurants in the vicinity, so you don't necessarily have to venture in to town in the evening
