Location of hotel was good, but not worth the price. Bathroom was tiny, sitting on toilet my knees touched the wall. Towels supplied by hotel, had holes in them. Hotel amenities was very very basic. Vending machine for water.

"Definitely in the Heart of it..."
If you're looking for a place literally in the heart of the red light district, the Heart of Amsterdam is the place for you. A few of the reviews I had read before coming mentioned it being dark and dirty and all that. But for a hostel in the middle of this sinful Mecca, I found the place to be more than adequate. The rooms were clean, the bathroom was clean and more than functional, lots of hot water. The trim was dark, but it looked like the room had been recently painted a nice orange color. The front desk was efficient, hit and miss in terms of their energy. And a really awesome location, especially if you plan to do Amsterdam right and don't bank on getting to sleep before midnight or later. Overall a good experience.

"go here just for location"
This is not a hotel to go to with family. It is in the middle of the red light district of Amsterdam which is great if you do not mind the bad neighborhood. But since the red light district is in the middle of the city and all transportation, it could be a great location for stay. The hotel room itself is more of an hostel - dark walls, dungeon type hall way, bad bathroom - the shower/bathtub would not drain, minimal lighting in the room. Very uncomfortable room. barely 1 star.

Normal clean but dingy hostel atmosphere. Rooms/beds were orderly and the people in my room were friendly and in bed at a sane hour. Location is great and you get what you pay for depending on the room you select.

The hotel was very uncomfortable as we had to go up and down 5 stories every time we wanted to get out of the room for something.... with the Luggage. Room was clean, area good for young people, but very pricey for a place without even an elevator...

"Lads weekend away"
Just arrived back from Amsterdam yesterday and spent 4 nights at the heart. We were 100% happy with the place for what we needed it for which was a cheap place to stay in the centre of the city. (Red light district) room cleaned daily with new towels etc. Rented an iron and travel adapters from reception and staff helpful throughout the stay. you get what you pay for and we were very satisfied. We stayed in room 42 top floor.

"Brilliant, would recommend to anyone"
Perfect hotel for a stay with mates, we stayed five nights for my 21st birthday, couldn't have asked for better at the price we paid. The hotel is central to Dam, three minutes from Dam square and bang in the middle of the red light district. Our room was cleaned every day by room service, the staff were amazing, the stairs were steep but not so much a problem if you took them a bit slower. The hotels decor was a little worn and faded in reception but the rooms were basically okay. I'd recommend to anyone looking for a cheap and basic stay (for a crazy weekender etc) and I would definitely stay again

"Pass this one over"
Room was in the sleazy red-light district, and all night you had to listen to the sounds of loud, drunk people, making it very difficult to sleep. The hotel itself was a bit creepy and dark, and didn't have a nice atmosphere. The room was clean, and the staff was lovely and helpful; however, I wouldn't stay there again.

The bed was great, had a little secrion to put your stuff and a light. And there was a tv! Which worked! Rooms a little bit hard to find as its like a maze, but all in all it was a reasonable hostel. The bathrooms were clean, the windows open. The only downside is that its a bit noisy, but thats to be expected. Its great for its price!

"Red Light Central"
Cheap very central and quite literally in the heart of the Red light district. The air is thick with the smell of weed. If thats your thing its a pretty cheap stay in a central location. IF you are going to bed without the aid of psychoactive substances you may wish to find somewhere a little qyieter and less busy.

"<3 Of Amsterdam."
I am writing this review to totally recommend this hostel/hotel to anyone planning to visit Amsterdam. For my first time visiting this city it was perfect. Dead in the centre of the action close to the bars and busy nightlife of amsterdam Central but also nearby to everything else you could want to see in the city. The staff were more than helpful and polite giving us directions and help any time of day or night. The room was more than sufficient and safe and beds were made and fresh towels everyday. for the money there is nothing else you could ask for. It's tacky crazy and colourful but that's what you'd expect staying in the red light district and it adds to the experience . I wouldn't reccomend it to families or business people but for groups of friends or solo travellers after a good time and to see the sights look no further than the heart of amsterdam. Thank you guys for making my trip special! I will definetly be back! :)

"Very mediocre hostel"
Stayed at the heart of Amsterdam during Christmas. I was given room n 1 which was a joke. Right next to the reception, underneath the main staircase. The noise was horrendous people walking up and down , cleaners hovering early morning, I ciuld hear people tapng on the keyboard at rrception.. ! Whats the point of paying for a room if you can relax, chill for a couple of hours? My friends were staying at the first floor and their room felt like 100 degrees as the heating were stuck full on! And it was noise too.. I wouldn't go back thats what I have to say.

Hôtel bien situé (dans le centre d'Amsterdam, au quartier rouge), autour pas mal de boutiques, Coffee Shop, sex Shop et le musée de la marijuana est juste à côté. Bien situé pour ceux qui aiment bien avoir de l'ambiance à côté. Par contre pour une famille le bruit peut déranger et le style est un peu vieillot mais vu le prix je ne m'en plein pas

"Bad arrangements"
I wan arranged a bed in a 10ppl dorm, I went out after checking in. When I went bed to my bed, I found someone slept my bed, the bed was messey. Then I told the staff and was arranged to another 8ppl dorm. And I found a wet towel on my pillow, and the pillow was not placed on a proper place. I think it's not right so that I told the staff again, but I was asked "what do you want?" It's totally unacceptable! I said I want to change the bed sheet and the pillow, but the staff rejected. Although I was finally arranged to a "normal" bed in a dorm, this experience was really bad!!!!!

Io sono andato per un addio al celibato vizioso...quindi ne va da sé che la posizione era perfetta. Il sunto del questionario che ho compilato è che l'aspettativa della vacanza è stata rispettata e che essendo di per sé una città mediamente costosa, il rapporto qualità prezzo difficilmente potrà superare la sufficienza, dal mio punto di vista.

"Muito bom!"
O hostel é muito bem localizado (pois fica dentro do Red Light District e à 10 min a pé da Centraal Station). O quarto é muito limpo e as camas bem confortáveis. Tem tomadas suficientes pra todo mundo próximo as camas. O banheiro é extremamente limpo e bem zelado. O café da manhã no hostel também é muito bom. A única coisa que deixou um pouco a desejar foi somente o tamanho do room pra guardar as bagagens quando se faz o checkout. Mal cabem algumas malas e as vezes temos que deixar a bagagem no saguão de recepção mesmo.

The hotel is located really close to the city center, so walking from the train station only takes a few minutes. The service is great, the staff does everything they can to help you. I stayed in a mixed dorm and the others there were really nice. The only thing bothering me was that the place wasn't very clean. The lockers were also too small, so I had to leave my luggage under the bed. I really recommend this place for young travellers.
