Alone

Backpacking / gap year

29 June 2010

Liked: It was in a good location. The staff were welcoming, after a terrible stay at another A'dam hostel. I was in a 4 person room, although booked for a 6, so that was a bonus.

Disliked: No place to lock your belongings, which is always annoying and risky. One computer for internet (at least it was free), not really any social atmosphere. Staff didn't seem to know much about what to do or what to see - not very helpful tourist wise. But for Amsterdam, where it seems hard to get something good, clean and friendly, it was ok.

Customer review

24 June 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: I thought the stairs were a riot! It was funny to walk them and we laughed a lot. The Staff was so nice and very helpful. They seemed to really enjoy their jobs. They had asked us to change rooms because there was a large group of men coming in and thought it would be better for us (3 women) to be in our own private room. They put us up in a much better private room for the same price and gave us free coffee, and were very appreciative that we were also easy going. Moral is: they are appreciative of their guests.

Anmol Madan

22 June 2010 Anmol would recommend this property

Liked: The good-- awesome location, visually clean (no bugs/mice), friendly staff, (small) lockers in most rooms, towels on request, 24-hour reception, luggage storage, grocery next door, walk to everything.The bad-- funky odor in the corridor between the staircase and door room. No full kitchen/food storage, but microwave and cutlery available.steep stairs, smallish rooms-- that's typical of Amsterdam city center, every building is like this. If you can't deal with it then find a hotel outside the city.

Disliked: Anmol left no negative feedback.

Liked: The hostel doesn't provide locker at all, i'm agraid they also don't have luggage room. From my room i could hear the guest on the top floor, also they climbing the stairs and closing the door. Isn't a bad hostel but if i'd've stayed a night more, probably i've tryed to find somewhere else.

Liked: The location was amazing! Wanted to comment on how narrow the stairs were. Felt rather unsafe going up and down them everyday. Also the temperature was hot as balls. So maybe add some fans or AC units.

19 May 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: well first off like stated below you really cannot get any more central than hotel mevlana its litterally 1 block away from centraal station and 2 blocks from the redlight district, on a main street with a plethora of near by shops, supermarkets, drycleaners, bars and not to mention many of the all too infamous amsterdam coffeshops. from the start the staff was VERY friendly and helpfull when it came time to check in and extended thier hospitality throughout the full extent of my stay in thier recently re-modeled state of the art facilty which for 20 euro a night is a gem glistening in disguise amongst the amsterdam street scence which is all too visable from the view you will see from the many Suites avalible in this hotel. cant sleep... NO worrys! the lounge which is located just downstairs will offer as a late night companion to those visitors who just cant seem to count those sheep and who knows you may just encounter some intersting new people. so basically if i had to keep it real with you i would have to inform you if you are not staying at mevlana your unfournatley falling victim to one of the many unsatasfactory hotels/hostels with catchy names and designs which try to sucker you in with mere gimmicks and ultimatley fall into the TOURIST TRAP catagory! so my advice,.. stay at hotel mevlana and enjoy your holiday in the heart of holland!!! trust me your wallet will thank you!!!!!!
