Ben the fella and Tom the babe xxx

4.40/5.0
The man at the desk was fabulous and keen to assist. He helped out so much I bought him a beer. They also have a lovely ginger cat called Tom, what a babe. Don't think I managed to meet Ben, but I'm sure he's a lovely fella too!

Amsterdam mit Favelaflair!

2.10/5.0
Sehr nette Portiers und eine gute Lage um die Innenstadt zu erkunden!
Das Hotel hat einen Stern; wohl dafür, dass der Begriff "Hotel" richtig auf dem Schild geschrieben wurde. Alles andere ist weit unter dem Standard den man in jeder Jugendherberge in Deutschland erwartet. Es mag sein, dass es schlimmer geht (hab ich jedoch noch nie erlebt), aber jeder der sich nach einem langen Tag mit viel Lauferei etwas im Zimmer entspannen will, der sucht sich lieber ein anderen Ort! Wenn man nicht so müde ist, dass selbst eine Parkbank verlockend aussieht, dann legt man sich kaum freiwillig in diese Betten... Das Badezimmer hat einen gewissen Charme, der in die Richtung Kneipe / Bahnhofstoilette - etwa um die 90er herum - geht Am besten man bringt seine eigene Bettwäsche und vor allem Handtücher mit (außer man steht auf verfleckte, zerrissene in Chlor getränkte Baumwolle). Alles in allem war es hart an der Grenze der Erträglichkeit. Jeder Preis über 20€ pro Nacht ist zuviel.

The worst value for money ever

1.45/5.0
There was nothing to like. Yes, the location is in the very center of Amsterdam, however it's close to Oude Kerk (the Old Church) which rings every hour and to the Red Light District. So we only way to fall asleep was to get completely stoned.
Bottom line - this is the worst value for money I've ever had. I urge everyone to strongly consider other options unless you have none available. And now more details: 1. The double room is very tiny. Also it was very cold and heating was not working. 2. For some idiotic reason staff came into the room and opened window every time we were away, making it even colder. They continued to do so even after I specifically asked them not to. 3. There's no indication on property page that they take 10 Euro cash deposit. Some people might travel without cash. 4. There's no soundproofing at all. You can here absolutely everything from the street, reception and all the rooms in the hotel. Being this bad I can't possible imagine why hotel doesn't allow smoking inside the property. It's the only way to make the accommodation more or less bearable.

Pour un séjour de 2 nuits pas plus

2.90/5.0
La situation géographique, c'est le seul avantage de cet hôtel
Les escaliers sont limite dangereux, surtout dans les étages supérieurs. l'odeur du cannabis est partout dans l'établissement qui n'est pas du tout aéré. Inexistence d'insonorisation, à 4h 5h du matin on est réveillé par les jeunes qui crient dans la rue.

Bonne adresse pour profiter du centre d'Amsterdam

3.95/5.0
L'accueil au top, personnel toujours prêt à rendre service. La localisation de l'hôtel et plus que bien, par contre faut pas être allergique à l'odeur de weed, en même temps il ne faut pas s'attendre à autre chose dans ce quartier d'Amsterdam.
Les chambres sont identiques aux photos.. Avec quelques années de vécu... Les murs, le sol est les couvertures mériter un rafraîchissement, par contre les draps étaient propre.

Do NOT waste your money here. This place is a dump. You're better off staying at a Hostel.

1.25/5.0
I gave this hotel the lowest possible reviews for all categories yet Booking.com changes the rating to a 2.5. This is very deceptive practice by booking.com. Nothing at all. This place was a dump. It stunk, no A/C, no TV, smelled like cigarette smoke. The place was very dirty. The staff was rude.

Do NOT stay here

1.25/5.0
Location was good. 5 mins from Central station. For some reason this website won't let me give it a lower rating than 2.5. It should be 0. ZERO. It is not fit for human habitation. Don't let the photos fool you. Area was not nice. Very dodgy crowd and a very dimly lit street. Location does not make up for the disgusting state of the whole place. I had to scrub myself clean afterwards and boil wash or disinfect everything that was in the room with us. Did not feel safe in the room and no way would we leave any belongings in the room while we were out.
This is not a hotel, it's some sort of grotty, low budget, halfway house/hostel type pitt. Location is very handy but not handy enough to make up for the filth. Area is rough and very very noisy. Hotel is crazy noisy. Music blaring from bedrooms and people running and shouting in corridors all night. The rooms were disgusting. Filthy. Tiny. Smelly. Bathrooms were like something out of a horror movie. The bed was so dirty it actually stank. The bedclothes were dirty, worn, stained and smelly. Checkout was 1030am. At 930 a man walked into our room and shouted "wakey wakey time to get up" ???????? Thankfully we were up and packed and ready to get the hell out of the dump, but we could just as easily have been walking around naked, he walked straight in without any knock or warning. We were due to stay longer but got out as soon as we could get another hotel. We arrived after midnight so we couldn't get anything for the first night so had to stay there. We didn't sleep a wink. It was the most disgusting night of my life. DISGUSTING!! I still don't feel clean after it.

Great Location, staff were so helpful and friendly. The Rooms were everything we needed and good value for money considering its Amsterdam
There was nothing I didn't like at all.. To be fair the shower could have looked a little cleaner but it's pressure was amazing other than that I was happy.

hostel not hotel!

3.15/5.0
I hated the church bells ringing every hour. I also disliked that I had booked a room with a double bed however I received two singles pushed together this was extremely diaapointing. This is also a hostel not a hotel!
