Customer review

05 August 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: this hostel is farther away from the center, but its still really accessible via tram (16,24,25, and even if you have 30 minutes you can just walk from the flower market or rembrandtplein, and then central station is only another 10-20 minute walk from there), and its worth it to be farther away from the center since its quieter and less people walking by at all hours of the day. breakfast is nice and simple, theres a computer with internet for those without laptops. the common room/lobby has enough tables, and there is a kitchen though i wasn't sure if guests could at least access the microwave. the internet is free, just ask the front desk for the access code, it worked up on the third floor (dunno about the fourth though)theres only one room key, and theres only two plug outlets in the room, and one is for the tv, and they're hard to reach since its up on the wall so charging cellphones/using laptops/anything electrical is better done down in the lobby where there are a few outlets amongst the tables. some rooms don't have their own bathroom or shower, but there are at least one of each in the hall on each floor.

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.
