Breakfast was rubbish to be honest it just bread with cheese and 2 selections of ham, they also had corn flakes but the milk looked like it had been out for ages., dirty cellar. The location...

I don't know where to begin. Everything is disgusting about this hotel. Rooms are so old and dirty. He told us that our room was the best room in the hotel, I wonder how others rooms look like then. You better buy some breakfasts and eat in the street, rather than in the old, dark, dirty cellar. I was shocked... More

Totally different to what was advertised. Dirty shared bathroom, wet floor shower with mould visible. Tiny room with inadequate security. See through threadbare curtains. No closet or space for bags. Very noisy location and extremely steep and twisty stairs (even compared to other accommodation). Found alternative accommodation and did not complete stay here. Photos show double bed, space and advertised... More

The bed was uncomfortable and dirty, Third night we crossed in another room on first floor (no 1), it was much better but without toilet in room. Common toilet was acceptable. Breakfast is the same every morning (bread,... More

I booked a twin room with private toilet and shower. at a price of about 240pounds for three nights, I say it's not cheap and I would have liked more improvements to be done. It has good location, along the Gentleman's canal and at the corner of Rembrandt Square. If you like bars and 'coffeeshops', then go ahead and book... More

Stopped here twice, if I had chosen wouldn't have gone back the second time. The first room needed a lot of work. One pillow smelled so bad I left it on the floor. The bed was so soft it was uncomfortable . The ensuite was separated from the room by a curtain. My second room was a windowless cupboard. I... More

The location is awesome, you can do everything on foot. I don`t care about luxury but this hotel is very poor, the bathrooms and the bedrooms are ``ok``, but they are not good. The free breakfast is good.

Stayed in this hostel and was overall happy. Easy to find, great location and breakfast was nice and filling every morning. Good free wifi. Stairs are very steep but the owner helped us get our luggage to the room so wasn't really an issue. The hostel is on the Rembrantplein so good nightlife, but noise wasn't an issue - probably...
