Was rather unsure as to what we'd get due to the amount of negative reviews, but we plumbed for it anyway as it was the only place we could afford during our stay. Hotel staff were very polite and helpful, room was ok size wise with 4 single beds for 2 adults and 2 teenage kids, with onsuite shower room....

I was a little put off by some reviews but still stayed with a friend last week. Staff was super friendly (particularly a woman named Maria, I think) and helpful, and the room was fairly clean. We also had a hair drier and a kettle, which were very useful. I loved the simplicity of it, would recommend. On our last...

Clean budget hotel. We were visiting someone overnight and needed a place to the head down. Breakfast was more than adequate. The hotel is well connected to the city with Trams 12 and 4. I know Amsterdam well, this place is not remote by any stretch. You could walk to the Rijksmuseum in 15 mins. And it's beside De Pijp...

After reading some unsatisfactory reviews, I was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and comfort of the rooms. We stayed in a quadruple room, and although it was slightly on the small side, it didn't bother us and I found it incredibly reasonable for the price. I was most impressed with the kind and helpful staff. After returning to the UK,...

We chose to book this hotel as it was cheap. We booked three nights there, at a cost of around 130 euros, or 40 ish per night. Firstly, although it doesn't look it on a map, it is pretty far out of the main town. Forget walking to town and back, unless you only intend to get back to the...

We was here for 3 nights, it was my first time abroad so I was expecting top notch on everything. It's homely and the staff are super helpful. The breakfast in the morning is wonderful with a variety of choices. The room was small and the sink leaked a little but other than that I would highly recommend this place...

Location was quite far out of town a suburban area, rooms were very small (not even enough room to walk around the bed), room was in a bad state of repair, with graffiti and very thin so could easily hear the next room talking. Ended up leaving the hotel and finding another room in a better location for a similar...

Pretty good hotel when price is taken into consideration. My only complaint would be the distance from the nightlife, but there's little that can be done about that. The staff was generally curteous, breakfast was reasonably priced(if you were hungry) and they even rented bycicles downstairs(didn't get a chance to try them though).
