Stayed here when our epic overland volcanic-ash-cloud-induced journey required a stop over in Amsterdam while we waited for a ferry back to the UK. Found that it served it's purpose as a cheap stop-over point perfectly well. We had the quad room, which is the only room with it's own bathroom.
Good location- not far from the central station, and well located for easy access to coffee shops, gay district, red light district - not quite as sleazy as the red light district itself but still, don't stay here with your grandma. Despite being on quite a main street for nightlife we found it to be relatively quiet - our room was at the back of the hotel and most of the other guests didn't make much noise. Some bass from the argentinian restaurant downstairs but this stopped by midnight.
Cleanliness - shabby decor, smelt of stale fags (clearly they allow smoking in rooms) but the important parts ie. sheets, towels and bathroom seemed fairly clean (bar the fag burns on the bath - not the hotel's fault - and the shabby tiger blankets) and the carpet looked like it had been given a quick once-over with a hoover. TV in room could get signal for BBC 1.
Receptionist was very helpful, giving us a map recommending acitivities to do. All staff encountered were helpful, polite and spoke good English (as most people in Amsterdam seem to). Breakfast buffet could've done with a proper fry-up or even a toaster, but was extensive and all you can eat.
