Very mediocre hostelPosted Dec 29, 2013
Stayed at the heart of Amsterdam during Christmas. I was given room n 1 which was a joke. Right next to the reception, underneath the main staircase. The noise was horrendous people walking up and down , cleaners hovering early morning, I ciuld hear people tapng on the keyboard at rrception.. ! Whats the point of paying for a room if you can relax, chill for a couple of hours? My friends were staying at the first floor and their room felt like 100 degrees as the heating were stuck full on! And it was noise too.. I wouldn't go back thats what I have to say.

Definitely in the Heart of it...Posted Sep 13, 2013 on Hotels.com
If you're looking for a place literally in the heart of the red light district, the Heart of Amsterdam is the place for you. A few of the reviews I had read before coming mentioned it being dark and dirty and all that. But for a hostel in the middle of this sinful Mecca, I found the place to be more than adequate. The rooms were clean, the bathroom was clean and more than functional, lots of hot water. The trim was dark, but it looked like the room had been recently painted a nice orange color. The front desk was efficient, hit and miss in terms of their energy. And a really awesome location, especially if you plan to do Amsterdam right and don't bank on getting to sleep before midnight or later. Overall a good experience.

The local dungeon...Posted Jul 21, 2013 on Hotels.com
Stay away.... trick photography has been used in the advert. No light in a black shower doesn't show how bad it actually is..room had a deep smell if vomit..don't trust any good reviews like I did.

go here just for locationPosted Jun 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
This is not a hotel to go to with family. It is in the middle of the red light district of Amsterdam which is great if you do not mind the bad neighborhood. But since the red light district is in the middle of the city and all transportation, it could be a great location for stay. The hotel room itself is more of an hostel - dark walls, dungeon type hall way, bad bathroom - the shower/bathtub would not drain, minimal lighting in the room. Very uncomfortable room. barely 1 star.

Cheap and closePosted May 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
Normal clean but dingy hostel atmosphere. Rooms/beds were orderly and the people in my room were friendly and in bed at a sane hour. Location is great and you get what you pay for depending on the room you select.

Brilliant.Posted Feb 25, 2013
Pros: Location, community, comfort, facilities
Cons: Umm... I would have to get really pointlessly picky to think of a bad thing, so I won't bother.
Location: Smack in the middle of the red light district, the most bizarre part of the western world I have yet experienced.
Brilliant Hotel right in the (obviously) heart of Amsterdam. To be honest, I expected much less for the price - the beds were comfy, fresh towels daily and a good ensuite with great shower. Considering these are hostel prices, this hotel (which I would class as bridging the gap between hostel and hotel) is head and shoulders ahead of its price-range competitors. Not sure about the other reviews regarding bad wifi reception, but I had great reception at all times, even in the bar across the road. Amsterdam is not a city for the faint hearted, so don't go booking this hotel with children, or with the expectancy of peace and quiet - nativity is no excuse for booking the wrong hotel. Would definitely recommend for a group of friends or travellers.

Amsterdam - beer, weed, girls, party... and you are in the middle of it. Can't find a better location than Heart of Amsterdam.

Had read mixed reviews but was very happy with the hotel. Room was a good size, tidied and cleaned every day and beds were very comfy. Definitely would stay there again.
