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.

... convinced that anyone has ever wanted to go to Basel as badly as we did then.
A helpful couple seated across the aisle from where we flung ourselves, exhausted from sprinting through train stations and only 90% convinced we were actually on a train for Basel, confirmed that the train was in fact Basel-bound, but only the front half. At the next stop, the train would separate and only the front half would continue on. They made sure we knew when to transfer and which car ...
... br> Eric went to reception to ask if they could do anything and they gave us an
upgraded room. It was smaller, but had a double bed, instead of two singles pushed together (the norm in Europe) and would have had canal views if there hadn't been scaffolding
in the way. So we were nice and warm in our new room. We are glad we stayed at a hotel instead of a hostel, which would have cost roughly the same if we had chosen to have a private ...
WARNING: this is not a child friendly post (lols cus so much of it has been so far) ---- I don't even know where to begin. But I must first point out that I am currently sat outside my hostel, which is in a field, which is surrounded by a **** load more fields, which are in the middle of nowhere, full of geese and cows and pigs and horses (ew). Drinking coffee and smoking a cigarette. I have never felt more Dutch... Need to get myself some clogs. In fact, I will just ...
... were there we went straight into the way locals live (probably more tourists in Amsterdam live) and went to a sex show. It was pretty lame really – the girls weren’t much for the guys to look at and it was exactly what the name of the show was…. After this we went to a café and dabbled a bit more with the Amsterdam way of things, very strange feeling being able to do this legally! The next day we had a bike tour, in the rain, around the city. It ...
... but I already feel the exact same way. I love it! Sure there is the smell of marijuana as you walk past some of the cafés and hostels.... But that aside, this city is so incredibly beautiful! The houses,canals, design, bicycles....it takes your breath away. It's difficult to explain so I just recommend that you come and visit as well!
We arrived by train this afternoon and settled into our lovely hotel room at the die port Van ...
