... then jumped off the cruise and made our way to a bar that had the other Top Deck groups in it... These guys are worse then ours, and after being knocked around and having to stop them taking our shots and having their drinks spilt on me I gave up and heading back to the hostel with a couple of the other guys, making a visit to Chipsy King for a late night snack before having a nice long hot shower and jumping into bed for the final night on ...
... waiting for her meal. We waited until finally she went and asked the lady when it was coming and they had forgotten about it so they made her one and then we ran back to the hostel where we had to meet everyone at 1pm for our bike ride. The bike ride place was across the road so that was easy because we all just went over there. They gave us our bikes, split our group and then we departed. It had been raining all morning so we were riding in the rain ...
... route, faster and easier to follow and straight into the heart of Amsterdam from the west. Here we stopped for more light refreshment plus Dutch pancakes, checked that the Red Light district was in full swing...which it was and cycled the last 10km home.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
The good... Near a tram stop. Near one end of Vondel park. Price average. Staff friendly. Nice coffee. Beds comfy. free mints at the counter Woohoo.
The bad... seemed to be stuck out in the middle of nowhere and beside busy road. Surrounds were desolate. Lots of construction about. Room small. Stairs, hall, room all smelled of cigarettes. Coffee and tea was short and not replenished. Room could have been cleaner. Was told to come back to the front desk in 15 minutes so i did not disturb the daily housekeeping meeting.
Make up your own mind.
I would stay closer to central Districts next time even if a bit more expensive.
