Perfect location, good value, lively atmosphere, pre-check-in and pre-payment
Close to everything. Friendly staff. Mattress a bit thin. More a hostel though with hotel price.
The drink specials The bed was hard and it was hot in the room and it was loud
The staff were very friendly This is a party hostel, not a hotel. I searched for a private room with large bed to share with my girlfriend, but we ended up here in a joint room. This should not come up in hotel search results. The entire place smells like marijuana and vomit..
very well located. Bike rent service is very convenient. wait 10-15min for check-in. chocolate which is sold at the reception tastes not very good.
Well organised, clean and tidy. Staff at reception could be more professional and polite, not chatting among themselves while checking people in - instead try talking to the guest.
The rooms were large and clean. We were 6 people traveling together, so the personal shower and toilet for our 6-person room was very convenient. a maid even came to empty the trash for us. The hostel is also located near the main road Leidseplein, which has a lot of interesting shops and a lot of activity and leads you to the center of town. great breakfast: buffet style with hard-boiled eggs, meats, bread, yogurt, cereal, fruit. The fee for internet use was too high (1.5 euro for 15 minutes, 3 euro for 1 hour). Furthermore, since the hostel has a limited number of internet access codes, some days it was impossible to buy the 1 hour of internet and we had to instead to buy the must worse deal, the 1.5 euro for 15 minutes.
I really appreciated the cleansiness of the room. I wasn't expecting this for a hostel. The breakfast was also outstanding. I was a little bit harder to find, but close to the hostel the directions were indicated well. It's a little bit further away from the center than I was used to, but still walking distance. Also right next to the Vondelpark which would be nice if it wasn't raining.
-Location of the hostel was great: 15 minutres walking distance to museums and nice shopping area. -Breakfast was very good. A real Dutch experience. -The hostel rents lockers for 0.20 cent per hour. I think that this should be free for the guests who want to store their luggage until check-in or late departure after check-out. -Having bathroom and toilet in the room can both be handy and disturbing depending on the people you are sharing your room with.
the variety of travelers staying at the hotel/hostel. the night staff didn't know how to let me into my room when the card reader failed.
the area and the breakfast
Why the gruop can use free space to keep their luggage? And I have to pay for that. Most of stayokay I stayed is free for keeping luggage. When I arrived earier, I have to wait for checking in
It´s close to downtown and the tram stop is only a minute away. The room was clean and the stuff friendly. We also liked the breakfast. The price could be lower - we stayed in a similar hostel in Berlin and paid 13 EUR per night with breakfast.
They allowed my group to stay in the same room which was nice, breakfast included was a bonus, very clean and safe looking as first time ive stayed in a hostel which i feared before because of the movies! Was a little bit far out from the centre thou
Clean, very good decoration, delicious food. It is cheap but the quality is very high. Nothing
It is a very clean hotel It is very noisy at night. i stayed Saterday night
This is a very new hotel but I was impressed by how quickly they had most services up and running. The staff were very friendly. Breakfast included a great range of food in a modern and efficient facility. The beds were comfortable and the bar was very reasonable too! There is a need to travel by tram into the city. Due to a design problem the floor of the shower encouraged water to settle by the door! This is being rectified I was told.
Clean, bright, breakfast included. What else do you want for the low price you paid? Yes, nothing exceptional, but nothing really bad. There is a thing i didn't like at all, and it's location. If you look at the map you might thing it's ok, but we failed to find it twice (first time police officers showed us the road, second time - we catched the taxi). The stuff was also polite, but nothing more - in Amsterdam I'm used to much more friendly approach.
good position in Amsterdam, inexpensive price I can find , good breakfast, but terrible coffee
The hostel is fairly new. The facilities were clean and attractive. The staff is very inefficient and acts as though they have something better to be doing that taking care of their customers. Since the hostel is new, many of the listed services are still unavailable (namely Internet access). Electrical outlets are conspicuosly absent from the rooms. So if you need to charge any electronics, be prepared to do watch them charge in the hall. Location was pretty out of the way, but not band on bike or tram.
inexpensive, very friendly and helpful staff; great locker system (2€ / 24h; you can open/close your locker as many times as you want; no key that one can lose, only code) Snoring people in my 6-bed-room; Breakfast could be a little more healthy
Breakfast, temperature,cleanliness, comfort,staff behaviour
We were welcomed the moment we arrived. Loved the space. The colorful lighting. The USB hook-up. The wifi hookup throughout Amsterdam is a HUGE benefit!! We'd come back for that alone. Other places should take note. Showers were amazing. Clean. Small (felt like a locker, especially when we had to get ready to pack up), but comfortable. Could've been cleaner, there were some hairs along the bed. Great nice and helpful staff. Love being able to pour your own beer and get a snack. LOVED this place. We will definitely come back. Felt like home!
free breakfast, good rate, near to the central station they don't clean the bed or room everyday- they will clean after check- out, no free internet (1.50 for 60 minutes), rooms are too small, shared bathroom was dirty and stinky.
good location, nice staff The people in my roos smoked weed and that was annoying
The locality to the city and train station. The staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast drinks choices were limited, they only offered coffee for free but for the price we paid it was still good.
Good location. as with all buildings in Amsterdam the stairs are extremely steep.
Room was super efficient sized. Fun things to see and do right outside the hotel.
the location of the hotel and the bed was comfortable!
I was supposed to be a 6 person dorm but it wasn't finished yet so It was 2 and a large space Has breakfast, and enough electrical outlets In each rooms each dorm has toilet and shower Sort of distant from center. No drinking in the dorm rooms? Really?
Very clean. Towel provided. I brought my own flip-flops, soap and shampoo, but none were strictly necessary (they had a funny 'soap stick' by the showers). Comes with breakfast (quite plain though). Eight minutes walk away from any bus stop, restaurant etc. Much further away from Amsterdam proper, though the 14 tram gets you there in ~20 minutes. Either bring a bike (and be a good biker) or get an all day bus pass. Wifi intermittent. Dinner restaurant often closed when supposed to be open.
The room and the room is clean. However, it is too small to stay. It is supposed to be a twin room, but the bed is just a two-level bed, which is different from the figure shown in the web. I would rather stay at the street until it is too late. It is designed for no other purposes but sleep. They do not accept credit card, unless you agree to pay for additional 4% cost. They do not accept traveler's cheques either. This is inconvenient for traveler. They also ask the tenants to pay 10 euro deposit for the room key, which sometimes hurt their feeling.
Rate & Location Noise from the street
I think the most important value of this particular hotel is its magnificient location - just in the centre of everything. Otherwise the hotel is miserable. Well there are various things that I didn't like. First, the check-in time on the confirmation letter was earlier than the time they said me on the spot. So I had to wait for 2 h. Then there was a misunderstanding about the breakfast - first info was that the price incl. brealkfast but later it changed. Then there was a total mess concerning the facilities ...
Location is good Stairs to steep and narrow, no lift. Toilet/washroom too small. View to back yard with rubbish.
location The fact it was the nearest thing to a doss house.
Very difficult to find any positives. Even it is in the very centre, it is located next ti the tram stop and church which is ringing its bells virtually all day. Many negatives. Its noisy. Website states breakfast is included in price, but it is not. The shop below hotel is under reconstruction and workers start in early morning. We booked twin rooms but the receptionist tried to give us rooms with double deck beds and said "we call this twin rooms also".
Friendly, helpful staff, great heating, great bed and a nice room. No soap in the bathroom. Noisy ventilator in the bathroom.
The painted walls/ceilings.
Good location in the centre, double room ok Mess up with rooms and stuck in a single room for the first night- unclean and tiny no room for anything, probably not even big enough if just 1 person staying there. The sheets were dirty so we asked 4 clean 1s and the man couldnt speak english so we had to sleep without a cover. Next day went in our double room was ok clean but the wardbrobe was broke and there wasnt much room.
close to station and town a bit run down
