    language Review by KDM from Germany
    Great place

    Last year i made my first trip to a-dam with a group of seven of us and stayed here. The staff was great, the breakfasts hit the spot and as the other review mentioned; it is only about 2 minutes from the train station on the edge of the red light district. When i departed i realized i had left some keys and cds behind. I contacted them when i arrived home and they said they would send my things to me. Within 3 days the package arrived. I sent them an intl. Money order for the postage which they sent right back to me and thanked me for staying there. When i return i will be staying here again.

    Best kept secret

    For those of you who might feel deterred by the unflattering photo they've published online on most hostel sites, push those doubts right out of your mind. For about 30 euros per person per night (one private room with two people) this is one of the cleanest hostels i've ever seen in my life! in comparison to the flying pig it seems like the shangri-la. It's attached to an english style pub downstairs and has simple and basic rooms but has a television (complete with mtv!), clean fresh linens, towels (changed daily), and sparkling bathrooms. No strange chunks of anything floating around! the young fellow (i believe his name is nicholas) who cleans the rooms and cooks breakfast was lovely and very polite. The "front desk" is literally the bar, and rotates between some gruffer employees. They're kind of rough around the edges (particularly the guy who first checked us in), but who cares, really. I was kind of concerned about this place when we first booked it, but i would highly highly recommend it. You'll read some whinging type reviews online (one guy gave it a thumbs down because they didn't carry his luggage for him!), but there's little to no merit to the complaints there. There is a 4:00 am curfew after the bar is closed, so you'll be locked out from 4:00 - 7:00 am but i can't imagine that'd be an issue for anyone i can think of. And it's literally a two minute walk to centraal station. If you're travelling with at least one other person, stay here!

    Clean, comfortable, very affordable and fantastic staff

    Stayed at the old nickel several times. It is close to the station and other forms of transportation or walking distance to attractions. clean, affordable, very comfortable! great food. the staff is very friendly and helpful. i give this 5 stars. I'd go back again and again.

    Suite fantastica

    Bellissima la stanza 'suite' che rimane proprio ad altezza uomo e da` sulla strada. La chicca e` la vasca jaccuzzi da 30o litri, un vero godimento dopo le lunghe camminate in giro per la citta`. Il tutto per 150 euro al giorno e con 4 posti letto.
