Ayelen Pereira

29 March 2010 Ayelen would recommend this property

Liked: Bad things: long stairs, you will have to "climb" to get to your room! not a very good idea if you carry a big suitcase like me (but i think all hostels in Amsterdam have a lot of stairs); the staff could be more friendly, not in the downtown.Good things: breakfast!, 1 block from the tram stop, free coffe/tea until 10 pm, free wi-fi in your room, good neighbourhood, we had a double room with a shower and sink, very valuable for the money!
