  • The Hostel is a bit far from the city centre, but there's busses (21) and trans (7) that go there really fast, but it costs 2,90 each way (or you can buy the day ticket for 7,50) There's a bathroom inside the room and it was really clean and with a great shower! The problem is that there's only 4 small lockers in the room for 8 beds. Also the hostel look like a hotel, there isnt a common area. I don't recommend this hostel for staying a lot, but for couple days is nice!

  • Despite the many unfavourable comments, accommodation and facilities were very satisfactory for the price paid. Guests should be aware that the web advertised price does not include government tax or VAT. So guests will be caught having to pay "extra".

  • A gentleman at the front desk was very rude with us for just doing a question. We were greeted by a very friendly young man the day before, but this man who seemed the owner of the establishment was very rude, and the lady who was working at breakfast and threw the dishes without any care and being rude to the guests .

  • Location not so good, but good value for money anyway. Nice and clean room. Ice lady at front desk should get other job that doesn´t include talking to people.

  • It was decent. A bad grade for breakfast surcharge, but conditions better than in other places.

  • This is not a hostel, this is a hotel. Only stay here if 0 options, and know that it's considered far away in Dutch standards. City center to the hotel taxi ride will cost you about 22 euros, trust me i know because of King's day. During big holidays their public transit sucks, so if bad weather (super cold when i was there) make sure you book ahead to something closer to city center. Also this is in a muslim neighborhood (no big deal) just don't expect to see traditional Holland stuff

  • Drunk neighbors in the very early in the morning were very noisy, kicking the doors. Everything else was more or less okay.

  • The hotel itself is lovely, room was nice also and was cleaned everyday. The only problem I had was how unhelpful the desk staff are. They were incredibly rude when asked questions and quite blunt with any answer given. When asked on how to get somewhere was sent off in completely opposite direction and its a pity as the hotel itself is lovely. I will not be returning here and will not be recommending this hotel for tourists as there is nothing worse then rude and unhelpful staff.

  • The only disadvantage of this nice place was... THE DOOR. Yes. The first door following to the rooms were very hard to open (U have to use special card to get there and the same card to get to your room as well). It was pretty embarassing and annoying - sometimes I got to wait for someone to open those door from inside. Besides, it was very ok. Hope next time I'll get 3-guests room without a big STUD in the middle ;)
