Just south of the multicultural Pijp district, on the southern side of the city. It's a 15-minute tram ride to Centraal Station, less to other parts of the city centre.
Simple but fun, with blonde wood floors, a silver beanbag, those furry cushions on beds. Shower rooms are small and a little dated. Some rooms at the back have balconies, though these may be in need of a bit of TLC. Note that stairs to the 24 rooms are steep and there's no lift.
The lounge lobby has a purple sofa, mushroom-shaped wood tables, a pebble effect round a fireplace, while the very appealing breakfast room has white fake leather banquette seating and those cowhide stools I've already mentioned. French windows open on to a shady courtyard garden with picnic tables, where you can have breakfast in fine weather.
Eating and drinking
Breakfast - included in the rates - is the only meal on offer, and is a decent help-yourself spread. There's a drinks machine in the lobby.
There are bikes for rent.
Willing staff at reception.
Who stays there
A youthful clientele, who like alternative places to stay, and might enjoy hanging out in the hip Pijp.
