 "ok but you can get better for the price we paid"
this is not a hotel for people with walking difficulties due to the stairs, the location is great for the coffee shops. the staff are very nice and the breakfast was also nice. the rooms could do with with a painting.

 "It's a hostel..."
We stayed for three nights and I alerted them I had a baby when I made the reservation. I never heard back and I wish they had taken more consideration of my alert. Our room was on the top floor of a walk up, and the only ventilation was a low window without any screens or safety bars. Not ideal for a family with a baby. But, whatever... It was cheap, in a prime location and they included breakfast. It's a hostel, so don't stay there if you are expecting more!!

 "Interesting set of stairs!!"
Unsuitable for people with vertigo, asthma or lots of luggage! Typical Dutch house with very steep stairs. Couldn't help think of the fire risks involved!Staff tried to be helpful but English was a struggle. Manager was available when requested to speak to him.Great location here, but noisy so take ear plugs!Room 6 not worth a look. Room 7 better. The location and views here though are amazing. Given all the 'cons' of this hotel, it wins by virtue of being in the epicentre of Amsterdam and by being affordable!

 "Although the veteran may not be the most beautiful place to stay in..."
Pros: Although the veteran may not be the most beautiful place to stay in amsterdam, this is certainly compensated by the friendliness of the staff and the excellent location. although the exterior and interior of the hotel / hostel is very dated, it was clean and comfortable... which is all that i expected. i would definitely visit the veteran again.

 "The only good thing regarding the hotel is the location although it was..."
Pros: The only good thing regarding the hotel is the location
although it was very noisy in the early hours of the morning.
Cons: Apart from the very steep stairs inside and outside the
building, the room was in need of a good clean and i was bitten by bed bugs. there is no reason why this problem can not be resolved but i suppose you only get what you pay for

Cons: The pictures on the website are nothing like what you get at the hotel.first impression, it was a flea pit,with mice running round outside,couldnt belieive what we got for our money,bathroom and toilet area, disgusting,and the room was so small we had to move out of each others way to move around the small space which we had.but idel for one person who wanted to be in amsterdam for a weekend just drinking and sleeping,in a prime spot for all bars etc.
