    Only given 1 star because I can’t give a 0”
    Please don’t waste your money this hotel is nothing more than a hostel. The pictures are out dated the rooms are in an awful state floor coming up mould on ceilings. I booked a double room and that’s what you get literally a room big enough to fit a double bed the wardrobe door wouldn’t stay shut I had to use the curtain to keep it closed the table on the wall wasn’t even attached properly. It states rooms have TVs but they fail to tell you they don’t actually have an Ariel so you can’t watch it..!! I complained about my room and was told i would be moved. The excuse from the staff as to the condition of the room. Was not everyone has the same standards..! I was gobsmacked. I was moved the next day and the new room was only slightly better because they had laid new laminate flooring but the decor was the same. Never again would I book or recommend this hotel. I expected basic but this was a joke. Please take notice of the reviews I wish I had listened and saved my money. Whilst there I also complained through Agoda as I don’t think the hotel should be allowed to portray the rooms as they are doingat the moment it’s very deceptive. The lady on reception did inform me the photos are definitely of the rooms as she saw her taking them a few years ago........need I say more. Please please do t waste your money

    Cheapest place in the Centraal area. The room was small but clean and provided an adequate place to sleep on our long layover. The stairs are steep, so not really conducive to moving luggage up and down. Ok for just carrying a backpack.

    Great location. Nice staff. Good value”
    You are not entering a 5 star resort. This is a little motel, small with surely some little fixing to do but, beds are nice and location is amazing. It was the cheapest room we could get in the center and we paid 75€ for a 2 single bunk beds room. We arrived early and got a room immediately (11am) lucky us. They supply towels, soap, shower gel and maps of the city. Only 4 mins walk from the main train station (centraal). We even had a perfect view on the canals. Check in : 2pm / Check out : 11am

    Too expensive for an old and shabby room ”
    It was very near the central railway station, so the location is very good. The staffs were very nice and helpful But the room rent was too expensive for a small and shabby room. The wall between room was too thin, so you could easily hear people talking in the other room. The fire alarm always beeping accidently. The room was too dim, that makes the room look even shabby. In addition, the pigeons were always staying and murmuring outside my window at the 1st floor ( though I understand it was not the fault of the hotel), but it was really noisy for the whole night. Overall, I just don't think it worths 6.2 points.

    Convenient, but uncomfortable.”
    It was very near the main railway station and city's main attractions. The staff were very nice, even to Asians. The fellow lodgers were very well-behaved and helpful.
    The hotel was not very comfortable. My room was too small, no writing table was provided, so that I had to sit and eat and watch TV all on the bed. The lights were too dim for reading. The shower room was a bit faulty, with leaking found on the toilet floor after every shower. The lift was out of order, so that I had to carry my heavy trunk along a squeaky, narrow staircase, which was in fact dangerous. The staircase was too narrow, even for people without baggage. The hotel is not recommended for the old and the sickly.

    There was a female staff who was really helpful and kind upon my arrival on 14/09/18 at around 4-5pm, she helped me out with a lot of things. The other staffs during my stay are just normal, a few are not so good attitudes and unhelpful.

    Central, but bad smell from outside”
    Its easy to see that this hotell is just a 2 stars, its an old and tired building. But the nice thing about it, is that the hotel is very close to the cebtral station in Amsterdam and what the city offers. I ordered just a singel room with toilet and shower, so I didnt need to share with others. The room was very smal, but ok for a place forj ust to sleep and take a shower. Only seriously problem was sometimes a very bad smell from outside, coming from thru the window. It was just like shit or bad food outside of the window. It told the service people about this, he said he was going to talk about the boss about the problem.

    If you need a location near the Train Centraal and on a budeget.”
    I stayed in a tiny, single room. It was fine for what I needed. I check every place I stay for Bed Bug’s but didn’t see any signs. It was freezing outside and I was concerned there was no heat, but a man at the front desk verified that every room has heat. I found the tiny heater hidden behind the curtain below the window. Once I turned it up it was fine place. The doors aren’t sound proof so you hear every slamming door and conversation that passes by. I asked for an extra pillow, which the front desk received for me, though I had to wait 15-20 minutes for them to get it. If I ever go back to Amsterdam and I’m traveling solo again I’d stay here again, mainly for the price and location. I also LOVE Amsterdam which helps.

    Budget Dam Hotel was alright value for money. Private room was in another building, be ready to carry your luggage up some very narrow stairs. The room was ok but very small. Has a cupboard for clothes and a bed side table and an ok bathroom. Location was amazing! I could easily walk to tons of international restaurants and sight seeing spots. There are lots to shop near hotel as well.

    Chose this place because of its location near the central station. But the single room is in next building than the dorms and the reception, narrow staircases, very small narrow room. Could fit at most 2 person at one time. Not advisable for family with kids, not a romantic getaway hotel. If you are desperate for a place in the central amsterdam then this maybe the place.

    It's near to Centraal Station. But it cannot be easily identified and there's not lift or escalator up to the lobby. Room is small and does not seem clean. If travel as a couple, it's recommended to go for hotel with better facilities.
