Travel Blogs from Amsterdam
Amsterdam has more museums than any other city in the world. There is no way to do them all today, but I could do a few. Museum of torture. A myriad of medieval tourtière devices lurk in the walls of this museum. Some of the most horrifying looking devices that I am glad are not in use today. Racks of rolling spikes, hot pokers, iron shackles …
I got kicked out of the hotel I was in last night. They were fully booked so I had to find a new place to stay. Google and a lot of waking revealed that a lot of the places were also fully booked. Eventually I found a somewhere with a 10 bed dorm available but it was 30€ which is a lot for a ****** little room with 10 beds. Especially since …

It was so good, I hadn't had anything like Chinese or noodles for so long so it ...

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.
I saw a mouse in the kitchen today. The tablecloths seem to stay dirty for a long time.
Internet was great.
