Probably reflects the age, and clientele..

Pros: friendly staff
Cons: See above written experience
Location: Felt a little limited for choices to dine out. Had to take the train to do that.
Stayed three nights two adults and two children. Two of those, could hear noises late in the night. Hard to isolate but sounded like men drinking and groaning. During the day, quieter as most occupants were out. While I try not to be overly critical, hearing noises in the night through the walls or windows does seem to reinforce the teens and younger crowd that one often observed checking in as large groups. Got a little nervous with other commentaries of stolen cash, so really did not allow room service on those four days that we stayed there, except for towel replacements. Unfortunately the other thing that I recalled was the poor drainage in the shower cubicle. One could not stay in the shower too long without it overflowing. The pipes needed a clean. While the place is generally ok, I would have spent a little more to be around other families or more mature guests, and a more free flowing shower drainage.

Dear Al, Thank you very much for your feedback. We are always looking for ways to improve our services. We certainly understand that when you choose MEININGER – combining the best from both a hotel and hostel - you may not be expecting that to be so literal. While we are proud to offer several tours and nightlife activities for our 18-35 demographic, we do also like to accommodate all younger and older travelers who may be visiting the city for the first time. It is important to our mission that we reach as wide an audience as possible, but that does not excuse their loud behavior at the expense of your enjoyment. We are sorry to hear about the shower not draining properly. We do hope your mentioned it during your stay so we could have fixed at the time. We hope you enjoyed your time in Amsterdam and to see you soon! All the best,

Perfect Break from Hostels

Pros: Rooms, Staff, UpKeep
Cons: People randomly busting into the room.
Location: Only one or two train stops away. Nothing good at the actual site but close enough to the CBD for that not to be an issue.
Situated 5 minutes from the CBD and right next to a train station, this Hotel was cheap and was upkept well. The only thing is people kept 'accidentally' walking into our room, not too sure if it was dodgy or not.
