Margarita Kostina thinks…

"Perfect location close to Rijksmuseum, not noisy at all, clean bedsheets. Breakfast is quite ok too. Check-out on Sunday is also possible, although the website of the hotel says it's not!"

Customer review

19 June 2009

Liked: This hostel had a good location. It was very cheap. The staff was ok. It was clean, but in the bath room the ceiling was full of mildew. In the room with 8 beds the air was very bad, because it was not possible to open the window completely. The hostel was safe, but there is only one key per room. There can be boys and girls in the same room. The internet is really for free.

23 February 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It was what I expected a 2* hotel to be and the room I was in was relatively clean. The shower and heating also worked quite well. However, the staff were not very welcoming or approachable at times and if I had a problem concerning the accommoation, I don't know how helpful the staff would have been.

04 January 2009 Sarah-Jayne would recommend this property

Liked: Stayed over New Years. Good points - friendly staff, hostel within decent walking distance of main places to go, dvd player in the room that we could have used (have to bring your own dvds). Bad points - room was at the top of 5 flights of almost vertical stairs, walls paper thin, and hot water only in taps in the room - showers were icy cold every day never any hot water.
