Liked: The Hotel consists of 3 bedrooms, where 1 is the room of the owner. Since the hotel was booked out, we got the room of the owner (on which we were informed and agreed on before arrival). The room and facilities are very basic, like mentioned in the description. Don't expect much. Location is good, since it is 5 minutes walk from the Amsterdam Central station.

Disliked: The place is not the most cleaniest one (e.g. the shower, mold on the ventilation system, mold on the inside of the fridge, dirty floor / tables). Also, its quite noisy (doors, stairs, acoustic feedback loop in the ventilation system that drives you crazy at night) and also a bit smelly (especially if you are not able to open the windows at night, e.g. in colder times). There is a sort of balcony, but its more a place filled with unused objects and therefore it is not really useable. Also, I was a bit disappointed that we actually had to pay more than it stated on Hostelbookers. I do not know the reason for it, since the owner was only at the place on the day we arrived and I did not get any chance to see/ask him again. The price Hoselbookers said was 560 Euro (101 before arrival, 459 on arrival) but actually we had to pay 485 on arrival. I did not immediately ask why on arrival (was quite late and I was tired of the flight and all), and did not get a chance to ask later. All in all, 586 Euro for 5 nights (2 people = 59 Euro per Night/per Person) seems too much for the place, since it is really very basic and nothing you want to stay long at. I wouldn't recommend it further.

Liked: The location -- it's really near to the train station, only 5 minutes of walking. As in other hostels/b&bs in A'dam, the stair's very steep so it might be hard for difabled people. This property is actually an apartment, not really a hostel, so it's equipped with fully-functioned kitchen (complete with fridge, oven, microwave, pans, pots, plates, mugs, glasses, tea, sugar, and oil), iron, and hairdryer. The beds are in the attic so it's kinda cute. The bathroom is with a spacious bath tub, too. The owner provides the linen and towels. It may be pricier than "proper" hostel, but with the location and facilities, it's a good value for money, especially for those who are in group of five.

Disliked: The alley is small but crowded at times, and the noise penetrates the room, so you can hear voices and noises from the alley. There's a coffee shop right across the place so note that if that's what you're looking for (or not).
