HOTEL CHARGES 100% OF COST UP-FRONT, AND IS NON-REFUNDABLE.

HOTEL CHARGES 100% OF COST UP-FRONT, AND IS NON-REFUNDABLE. This is not a hotel. It is a hostel. If you value sleep you don't want to stay in this place. If, however, you want to party until red-light-district closing time (4am-ish) and don't mind hearing every step, scream, snore and other noise emanating from the paper thin walls, then this is the place for you. We paid for 3 nights and left after 1, the hotel would not refund us for the following 2 nights even though the room was free. Staff were obnoxious and passive-aggressive, answering 'what?' uninterestedly to every query. Breakfast is €10 extra. Plug converters are €15 extra. Our holiday started when we left this dump and went to a boutique hotel away from the red light district. It wasn't much more expensive and everything was included. Avoid at all costs.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

There are loads of great restaurants for an evening meal, but finding a nice, clean lunch can be trickier. Try "vlaamsch broodhuys" on elandsgracht for delicious home baked bread and locally sourced ingredients, and great coffee!

Pictures can be deceiving

At the end of the day it was a good hotel location but the images on this website for the hotel 'over sell' it in terms of its appearance - its like when you see the picture of the burger in a fast food chain and then they hand you something that looks similar, but just not quite the same. Great value for money and very helpful staff - wouldn't recommend for families or couples - more of a friends/groups kinda place in terms of its 'feel' and look

Excellent location. A very basic hotel. The staff are friendly but don't necessarily give you the best of advice for nights out. Perfect place for walking to attractions.

This a budget hotel but not a budget price , Our room was 4m x 4m Room did not look anything like the ones on the hotel website. A box with a bed and a bathroom the size of a telephone box, TV reception was rubbish, very limated wardrobe space, Room at the top (pack an oxeygen mask) Great location the only saving grace.

Great location & the front desk

Great location & the front desk staff were very friendly & helpful. Our room was alright for a budget traveller. However, it was not properly cleaned by the cleaners while we were out. The hotel does not provide bath soap or shampoo.
