I can’t believe how bad this hotel was, for starters most of the things it advertisers it has hasn’t. E.g ceiling fan/heater. No it had a small desk fan full of dust wouldn’t dare to put that on. The hotel staff are rude. The stairs are so dangerous it’s like climbing a ladder! We was on the top floor too which was awful. The whole hotel room was awful, the bathroom stunk every day. The walls are damp. The dust everywhere is very visible, blood on the walls, sweets with fur on the floor. Dark room. Back street views. Made kept opening all doors and windows so anyone could of gotten in from the backstreets also we tried to the bathroom door closed so we couldn’t smell the bad smell when in the room however he/she kept opening it. We was forced out of our room everyday from early morning to very very late as we couldn’t stand the smell and dirt. The bathroom was minty and the bedsheets had pot holes in them. Never changed bedding just made up. It was seriously the worst hotel I’ve ever been too. Rate less than 1 star if I could. Only positive it’s by easy times and easy to get to. Team 1,2,3 But the price we paid was very expensive considering!!

We booked this hotel due to its location being close to everything we needed. The hotel is quite small and the stairs being very narrow but, it's very common in Amsterdam so no surprises. Our room was pleasant no problems with that at all. Overall if your looking for a budget or last minute holiday then I would consider this hotel.

Wow! I can't believe they forgot to mention the fact that the stairs are dangerously steep and we were unable to safely carry our bags upstairs (3 levels up). What a horrible experience. We only got a refund for 1 night out of 3. I'm so upset about what's happened. I have a hip injury and wouldn't have booked this knowing that the stairs were so narrow, steep and unsafe. I don't recommend this hotel for anyone who is old, under 5, injured, carrying a heavy suitcase or has a fear of heights. I hope you read this and can contact me about our booking.

Visited here in February. It was a budget weekend away with my friend. We stayed in a room with a shared bathroom and didn't realise until we got there. It was however really clean and rooms where spotless constantly. It was a clean hotel and is great is your looking for somewhere just to get your head down. I would stay here again but with a room with an en-suite. Staff were friendly and really couldn't fault that! There is also a coffee shop next door, I have seen a few reviews complaining about the noise but i was at the back of the building and couldn't hear a thing. There is a bus around a ten minute walk away which cost around 10 euro which takes you to the airport so it is really accessible.

This hotel is well located for most of Amsterdam's attractions but be is very small. That is to say, the staircases are EXTREMELY narrow and it's very difficult to get up to the top floor bedrooms with or without suitcases. Pretty expensive for what it is. Service is fine as small hotels go but would not chose to return due to the narrow staircases.

Visited here in the middle of June paying €209 for an ensuite double room. Pros: Great location, Very comfy bed, TV with English channels, Good powerful shower Cons: Room smelt damp/foisty constantly, Tiny room, View from window was a brick wall, Stairs were more like ladders. I wouldn't recommend this hotel but I feel it's best for young, able people who can make their way up and down the very steep and narrow stairs. I understand most stairs in buildings here are steep but these ones felt dangerous especially carrying luggage around. It's okay for the one night but I wouldn't of liked to stay any longer. If you're less able I would steer clear of here all together as there's no way you can make it up and down the stairs. I wouldn't return purely because of the stair situation.

We booked this hotel because it was on a gay site. But it is not a gay hotel any more. The rooms were so small you could not move in them there is no were to put you clothes the room was no more then a broom cupboard. And for £100 per night with no breakfast. So avoid if I was you.

The hotel is tiny. If you are planning to visit it with a lot of luggage avoid it. It was small stairs where a person can hardly walk. They do not have any food option except for the mini grocery outlet. Its close to many coffee shops and many other shops and restaurant but its not comfortable to stay in.

Room was clean and had a good size, comfy beds. Location is great. Stayed in a double room with private bathroom. Nice shower. Service on the other hand was rather poorly, receptionists seemed to be in a bad mood all days. I payed for late checkout, on the day I was leaving they came knocking to tell me i overstayed checkout. NOT OK. I would stear clear of this hotel if possible,just because of the non-existent service.

Very small room, only zink. Two steep stairs up you a half decent shower and small wc. Breakfast room is reception sometime with lots of luggage. Ok staff. Payed more than my booking was, like a good hotel in Stockholm. This was like a private room in a 2 star hostel. There are better options, but impossible smaller.
