Budget hotel, reasonably close to city centre.

Posted Jan 6, 2018
Not the best hotel but represents it's star rating well. Cheap to book and is pretty close to everything. You get what you pay for. I also left some stuff in the room which I thought was gone and they emailed me asking for my home address so they could send it back to me.

Stairs are more like a latter. Price was too high. Loc action is the only thing good.

Great hotel for the $$

If you're looking for 5 star accommodations this is not the place for you. If you're looking for a clean room, a comfortable bed, and Amsterdam outside your front door then book now! The stairs are steep, so I would not recommend for the elderly or families with young children. My brother and I, both in our twenties, had no issues. The only negative I can think of was our next door neighbor smoking on the fire escape right outside of our window, but after asking him to be quiet, he went back inside and it wasn't an issue again. The breakfast was very convenient in the morning before going out to see the city

Awful Hotel - apathetic staff.

Posted Apr 25, 2017
Cons: A lot. Cleanliness, fix the showers and actually give the customer what he paid in advance for,
Wanted a room with 4 single beds got 2 singles and a double Shower was broken and there were ants in the room. When I asked for the guy at the desk to sort the shower he came down with a drill and did nothing.

Good value for money, should improve maintenance

Good service, nice breakfast and coffee machine, good location and fair price. Bad room facilities: 2 out of 3 single beds were very uncomfortable. 1 shared toilets and 1 shared shower for approx 10 guests from 4 different rooms, where the toilet seat isn't mechanically attached to the toilet and the toilet door lock is broken (which causes more than few awkward moments). The shared shower is OK. Last - no elevator, very steep and uncomfortable climbing for 4th floor.
