Liked: The hotel appears to be a family business, run by an honest arab or indian man (sorry about the generalization but i'm just trying to explain the best way I can) and some younger guys who are also very helpful. They are nice and help you with advice about the city and try to solve every problem in the hotel.

Disliked: It was a little dirty. It was way too expensive for its value (plus the city tax and the locker price). I had really inconvenient roommates who slept all day and were very dirty, actually there was a girl who decided to sleep on my bed - it had my name already on it and I had already put my clothes on it, and my bag under - but when I came back from town at night I found her there sleeping over my clothes and everything. I had to call the staff and had to change beds in the middle of the night. I stayed in the highest floor and there was no internet there...

Liked: The sheets were clean

Disliked: Floors and walls were quite dirty and a shower head was missing on a shower the first day. Staff was not overly friendly. It was far from the city center and it was quite expensive for the quality of stay.

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...
