I honestly have no idea how other reviews said this place was clean. I have stayed in budget hotels and hostels all around the world (20 countries) and this was by far the nastiest, dirtiest place I have ever stayed in.
To start off with, it is in a shady area of Amsterdam, though it is convenient by tram. It was easy to find, and we were buzzed in fairly shortly after we rang to be let in. The check in area is tiny. Teeny tiny. Our room was past the check in area, so anytime we came and left we had to squeeze by them, if there was even room.
We walked to our room and noticed that all luggage storage was directly in front of our room (and the other 4 rooms around there). There was no one watching it, so if I wanted to steal anything it would have been very easy. DO NOT PLAN TO LEAVE YOUR BAGS HERE.
Inside our room, I was completely disgusted. It was filthy. The front desk had told us "Smoking is forbidden in you rooms, this is very important". Well, our comforters were filthy (actually covered in dirty) and covered in cigarette holes! There were spiders and other creepy crawlies throughout the room, cobwebs everywhere, and the shelf in it was covered in dust. The carpet was coming up all over the room, and was literally taped back down with lime green tape. Needless to say, the carpet was the dirtiest carpet I have ever laid eyes upon. I never walked on it with bare feet.
The bathroom was also very dirty. It had a certain grunge to it that I just cannot put into words. The shower did have hot water, but the water pressure was so low I could barely wash my hair.
This was the worst I have ever been ripped off by staying at a hotel. It was seriously gross, and I would honestly suggest just sleeping on the street before going to this place. It was terrible - do not give them your money!
