Customer review

07 June 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: We liked this hostel a lot. Its right in the middle of the redlight district so its not for to walk to the centre, many bars and coffeeshops, the central station and whereever else you want to go. Its very clean and our room we stayed in (8 beds) was very spacious. The bathroom was pretty clean too, you also get clean towels every day. Breakfast was ok. There are two laptops you can use for free. For a 10€ deposit you can put your stuff in a locker so its safe.All in all its a great place to stay at for this price.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Xun He, Winnie Ng

06 June 2009 Xun He, Winnie would recommend this property

Liked: The hotel looks a little old but its alright. 6 of us stayed in a 8person dorm ensuite. The room is cozy however toilet is not what we had expected. The toilet is without water drainage and the shower is separated by shower curtain. Therefore while bathing, water will flood the entire toilet. Still, i would say its worth the price paid. The breakfast is fantastic by the way!

JEAN PAUL MICHON PAOLI

23 April 2009 JEAN PAUL would recommend this property

Liked: If you are looking for a place at center of the red district to discover the heart of Amsterdam at a reasonnable price, this is perfect. Rooms are clean and price is OK. However the place is quite busy & noisy. The Room was very dark and a bit "sad" but may be because it was a Star Wars theme, so completly black with only 1 wall painted. Anyway we didn't stay in the room for long ...
