Liked: If you're after somewhere relatively cheap that has the basics then Hotel Oosterpark is fine. It seemed to be safe enough and it's location wasn't too far away from Amsterdam Centraal, about 10 minutes on a tram. The tram stop is just down the street from the hostel which was convenient. The park opposite was also a nice nearby place. There are some cafés and a market round the corner.

Disliked: The room could have been cleaner and the staff could have been warmer, but they were friendly enough. If you're after somewhere with the basics then this fits the bill. If you want to go somewhere a bit nicer where you plan to spend a bit of time, I suggest you look elsewhere.

Liked: Good location. There are really good tram and bus connections and several little shopping disricts arround the corner. The park in the front was really nice and inviting. The staff was always kind and the atmosphere really nice.

Disliked: There was hardly any light n the showers room & no window or any other kind of air exchange. Some of the windows weren't working (means they weren't really opening).

Liked: There were good communal areas and the information provided in the front room was useful.

Disliked: The bunk bed was missing a side which was hidden by pushing that side against the wall along with the ladder. This meant I had to clamber up on to the bed - completely unsafe. The shower looked completely unsafe and impractical, to the point where nobody felt comfortable using it. The hostel wasn't located close to anything but Oosterpark, being at least a 40 minute walk from the centre.

16 April 2014 Jasmin would recommend this property

Liked: It was nice to have a chandelier in the room and nice velvet carpets on the staircases. The location is lovely if you like parks as Oosterpark is a lovely one. Provides a bed for the night which is what you want it to do.

Disliked: It is a small family-run business and you cannot get in without ringing a doorbell. So coming in with dinner-plate eyes thinking we were seeing pink elephants in the middle of the night and having to wake the poor men sucked. Didn't mention 5.5% extra charge on booking. Bunks didn't have ladders or barriers so I ended up sharing with the bottom bunk sleeper below me. A bird flew in the room and poo-ed everywhere and it didn't get cleaned up. Sink in room was blocked and linen could have been fresher. No towels included as it said in description.

Liked: 15secs from a beautiful though rapey-looking park

Disliked: Family own hostel, so even bringing a friend for half an hour (there were 2 of us in the room already) meant the receptionist asking the sage old man eating cous cous (the owner) who grumbled his approval after half a minute. So it's fine if you're a quiet person. Otherwise...

The property's response is...

Liked: This is a clean hostel that ultimately does its job of providing a bed for the night. It doesn't offer much more than that but you're in Amsterdam so get out and enjoy the city!

Disliked: Feels quite shabby as you enter. Could do with a lick of paint and new carpet just to improve on first impressions.

Liked: Nice place and friendly staff; decent area adjacent to a park; good value and pleasant stay.

Disliked: A bit far from the city center; promised wireless internet doesn't appear to work from the rooms; occasional guests are rowdy and loud late into the night (at least during my stay)
