TravelPod Member ReviewsMarnix Hotel Amsterdam
The room was a 10 bed dorm with attached bathroom. The beds were comfortable enough and the linen clean. The shower was decent but the toilet was broken. It took a minute but I worked out how to make it work. Had to read inside the wall and lift the plunger out of the system.

Internet was great.

I met Yuki- a friend of Adam and Rob who runs Betty too, a coffee shop in the centre of town. I had a smoke and told her about my trip and ...
... of the golden liquid with their froth. Women, on the other hand, a lot more sophisticated tend to sip thereby only getting the froth and all the bitterness that goes with it......so, to all you women out there...Go and gulp your beer in future as I have it on full Heineken authority that you will love it!!
As free beer was on offer, I felt obliged to sample some, whilst Mark felt obliged to sample a lot. We then got on our bicycles and ...
