Adelle Smith

29 August 2009 Adelle would recommend this property

Liked: Rooms are tiny with very small double beds if you book a double private, shared bathroom was ok, both shower and toilet were cleaned every morning without fail which was good. Constant smell of weed being smoked (ofcourse) :) Free wifi, limited kitchen use within certain hours, crockery and cutlery under lock and key out of the time limits. Not real close to the main city area but not to far to walk there, aprox 10/15 minutes. Supermarket is close 5 minutes away. Tram 9 will get you to and from the central train station stopping right near the hotel/hostel. It was ok but not great.

Liked: * A very good location an' propperly connected to interesting places by tram.* They give you a Key so you can go in an' out whenever you want.* Great breakfast* can use the kitchen.* can play billard.Did not like:* no elevator and very uneasy stairs to "climb" to our room (although it only has one floor).* Can not say that our room was confortable... (dont know about others)* too much people to sare 2 showers and 2 WC in the whole hostel.

13 August 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It is far enough from the centre to avoid the nightly flood of tourists, yet close enough to not need public transportation. It was not so busy as to create any discomfort, and the staff was satisfyingly helpful. There isn't plenty of space, and the stairs are always very narrow, yet this is typical of this city. All in all, it was a good experience.

13 August 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The hostel was overall pretty nice. The staff was very helpful. They gave us great directions, and a map. They also had great advice for where to go for cheap food, and dinner, etc. The breakfast was great. The other hostelers weren't very friendly, we usually stay in hostels to meet people and not just be alone in a room. I wouldn't advise to stay here on weekends. It was crazily loud. People were yelling, partying until six or seven am. Which of course it is Amsterdam. But when you have to get up for an early train trip, I would like to get to bed by 3AM. However it seems to be groups, so you have the first group singing drunk songs until 2AM. The girl knocking on her boyfriends door, for a straight hour, until 3AM and then of course the guys that get back at 4AM finishing out their partying night.

Liked: Every aspect of this hotel is amazing, definitely will come back to this hotel when I am travelling to Amsterdam. The only issue was that there were no elevators and I had to climb 3 flights of really long, steep stairway with my huge luggages, which was a bit of challenge.

Liked: the doublebed was not really a doublebed in my opinion and we had the room under the roof, maybe the other rooms are better, but the location was nice and calm and central at the same time. the staff was very friendly, the price for the room too expensive, but this is amsterdam.

Liked: though the first staff we met was quite curt with us and they had first assigned us the wrong room, things got settled quite quickly - another staff - seemed like the incharge, was much nicer, more friendly and easy going. Let us stay in the common room after we checked out until we had to leave for our flight. There's also a lovely cafe across from the hotel.
