Thieves and rats!!
Go ahead and stay here if you want your stuff stolen and rats in your room. After insisting that they come in to clean my room, and i said no but was on my way out so didn't argue too much and finally said fine. Only to come back to a stolen Ipod that was left inside my bag. The next day when I confronted the manager, she vehemently denied it and said things like "Why would he steal your Ipod, he has one already" or "He's worked here for 10 yrs and no one has ever complained" Right! Well scripted. needless to say i couldn't do anything about it because I was trying to catch a train to Berlin.
Also, something ate its way into my bag and got a little treat, lets just say there was at least one happy rat tripping its balls off in the streets.

Scrambled eggs and toast is all there is for breakfast. You might have to share your bed with some furry frends.
Unique Quality: Handy if you wan't to nip out and ogle the prostitutes.

Amsterdam's budget double bedroom
Instantly welcomed by the friendly staff who were more than happy to tell you where all the hotspots were in Amsterdam.
The room was wee but it was clean and cosy and that is all we needed for our stay.
There was a constant flow of hot water and central heating. Breakfast was included in the fixed price but we never got up in time to sample it.
I would recommend this hotel if you are not fussy about what it looks like and that you do not mind climbing the 3 very narrow staircase to get up to the top of the hotel rooms.
Only thing I would advise is to wear ear plugs if the room next door come in later in the night as the walls are quite thin.
Unique Quality: Great location, great staff, good facilities... what more could you ask for!
Directions: 5 min walk from central station
