Liked: I really like the location of this property! It's a nice balance of a hostel and a hotel - there was someone who comes to clean the room daily and there's always someone at the reception. My bed was so comfortable too, which is really nice after traveling for so long, having a nice, comfortable bed is so great.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: Great Location staff on front desk were brilliant

Disliked: The rooms were too small and absolutely too warm. No air conditioning and the window to our room had steps outside that led to another rooms window so if we left it open anyone could come in!

Liked: Location.

Disliked: The room is an oven, even though the night was chilly outside, it was really hot inside, no idea why. No noise isolation, curtains don't let the room dark (it's the center of Amsterdam, there is light outside all the time). The lockers didn't lock properly. The bathroom smelled of mold and flooded every time someone took a shower. There is no kitchen and no breakfast. The staff is not very helpful.

Liked: An ok tv in the room. Could smoke on balcony (one of few rooms with a balcony).

Disliked: 5th floor. With amsterdam stairs very difficult on a daily basis. The balcony was nasty full of green water with cig and joint ends. Rat skeleton on balcony also. But cheap and cheerful for stoners.

Liked: Location and the girl at the reception was nice. Let us check in early around 11. She offered us to view 2 rooms, 1 on the 2nd floor and 1 on the basement. We opted for the room on the 2nd floor.

Disliked: The room was dark, lighting was insufficient and bathroom smelled like urine. No one replaced the tissue box in the bathroom and i dont think there was any cleaning either otherwise the smell would have vanished. They pre authorized 1 night chrge on my bank account and on the info it states that it will be released after 3 days. I initially have no problem with this but after 2 weeks of pre authorization the amount has not been released. Sent them an email after my stay asking why the amount is still not in my account, they said that it will be released after 4 weeks!!! 4 weeks is too long and the amount is around £40!!!! Give my money back!
