 "Traveller from Hungary"
The only strong point of this accommodation is its central location (although, thanks to it, it's terribly noisy) and breakfeast provided in the neighbourhood restaurant.
Otherwise, both the size of the room and its furniture are a disaster, you can't sleep at night because of the noise, there is no lift, there is a very steep staircase up to the reception. Taking all these into consideration, it is not even that cheap.

 "Hotel manofa"
Says it was 3 star but getting there showed one star. Beds were comfy but rooms are a 50/60s throw back shower flooded and room 105 is under the main stairs and very noisy will not be back
Was not a great experience

 "Location and a bed is all you get... and need."
Hotel Manofa is not a particular classy or expensive hotel, you get a bed in a room, with a window and breakfast in the downstairs restaurant. And then you get the location. That is it.
It is not a very clean, visually appealing, greatly staffed or well maintained hotel. At first glance it might scare some off. And the security seemed more or less none existing. The sheets where not the typical hotel clean, our window only loosely closed and caused draft, and it is a very noise hotel with no insulation and creaking floors and stairs.

What the hotel does have is a great location right on Damrak, a short walk from Centraal Station, the shopping streets and Red Light District. Your room is cleaned everyday and if you are lucky enough you stay on the first floor where you can pick up on the free wifi in the reception. And you get a breakfast that while maybe not very unique has just enough selection.

Considering what you pay (compared to other Amsterdam hotels) you get what you need and what you pay for. Nothing more. But all things considering it does seems just slightly too pricy. Might come back... but probably not.

 "Second Stay"
its cheap so dont expect a palace, but compared to others for the same price this was a bargain. Room was a little dated but extremely clean, and cleaned daily, fab location. Staff very friendly and helpful. Didnt try breakfast as slept in ha

 "Hostel and not Hotel"
The Hotel have only two things, is on the center of the town and breakfast that you can eat. On the other hand, is not Hotel but one really bad Hostel and expensive for nothing ... Really bad room and toilets.

 "I was robbed after one hour of checking in!"
I checked in, took the stairs, left my baggage in the room and my camera on charging mode. I spent less than 15minutes, I left the hotel to enter in a restaurant just a steps away, after 45min I went to my room and oh surprise! the door was broken, my cosmetics all around the room and my camera was stolen with all the memories of my europe trip. This was the last night before take my fly back home. Terrible and scare.

 "Dirty, noisy and really bad hotel"
there are rats inside the rooms, it is really dirty , noisy and it has unfriendly staff.
When we complained about the rats, staff said us something like "it's not my problem and I can´t do anything " . After many complaints, they sent us to another hostel -only for that night- which we had to pay ourself .
In my view, this hotel doesn´t have minimum proper conditions to accommodate people. I´ll never come back

 "Cheap and poor"
There were mice in the room. The ceiling was in a terrible state. The location of the hotel is perfect and the price more than affordable. If there weren't any mice in the room I would recommend this hotel because of the location and cheap price.

 "NO GO"
Shared bathroom wasn't a good idea.
Dirty and stinky. Shower was blocked and overflowing.
Room was tiny but quite clean. Only one electric socket was working (3 in a room) and only one light switch was working ( 2 in room )
There was a sink in a room which was making strange noises from time to time.
Positive - free wifi, free breakfast and very good location.

 "Manofa minutes away from everywhere"
Hotel very basic, bordering on grim, however, after the shock of the bleakness of the Hotel, we quickly realised what a fabulous location it is in. Near everywhere, within walking distance of Dam Square, Royal Palace, shops, bars, restaurants, Red Light District, canals, museums.

It is actually very clean, just needs some upgrading. If you are looking for a central location and won't be in the Hotel much then perfect. Basic breakfast, but you can make toasties, cereals, juice, hams, cheeses, not many budget Hotels offer this.
