    very friendly good location

    the stairs. too expensive


    Families with older children juni 2013

    A well-located freindly hotel with real Amsterdam character

    Excellent location; Friendly helpful staff. Great breakfast and clean new ensuite bathrooms.

    A challenging staircase but once the luggage is up it is part of the real Amsterdam experience.

    “My tip: Travel light because of the staircase; Easy access by tram - Trams 1,2 & 5 from the Central Station & get off at Leidseplein; Tram 7 & 10 stop almost in front at Raamplein. Great value breakfast!”

    Loved this hotel!

    In such a great location for bars and restaurants. Only 15 mins walk (and a really pretty walk) to the Red Light District. Had the comfiest bed I have ever slept in and our room was cleaned daily. Friendly staff and a great little bar. Cool decor in rooms.

    Nothing at all - I loved it!

    “My tip: Walk around the area rather than catching the tram - its beautiful. Nearby bar called Lux is really good and open till about 4am.”

    Awesome theme, good location, great value.

    Awesome theme!

    Stairs are a really steep. Ask for a lower floor if you have luggage.

    Fun budget, boutique hotel. Nice staff but loud street noise!

    Great location! Fun rock n roll theme. Nice staff...

    Very loud street noise. People walking home drunk and REALLY loud from bars or wherever all nite long on street out front. No A/C so couldn't shut window to keep out noise.

    “My tip: Bring good ear plugs! Enjoy how close you are to everything!”

    Uber cool place to stay in Amsterdam

    What a great hotel! The guys who work here are so nice and helpful, the room (Jagermeister room) was first rate and very clean and the hotel is just five minutes away from the Paradiso, which was great for us. I would 100% stay a here again.

    None what so ever.

    “My tip: Ask for the Jagermeister room (it sleeps five)”

    Hotel Backstage is awesome!

    Great location,friendly staff,awesome design theme.Highly recommended :)

    It can be a bit noisy in the morning while the staff cleans up but I guess it's like that in every hotel.

    Perfect stay at Amsterdam

    Could imagine to choose it again in case of another amsterdam trip

    Personel is extremely kindly and helpful, atmosphere is very nice, breakfast: price/quality relation is very good

    low hygiene ranking is because of the bathroom: mould-infested, rinsing reservoir of toilet was leaky, floor of bathroom not cleaned for days; no towels - thought it wasn't incl. due to the low price and didn't ask at the reception; but got some at the last day of stay - should have asked ;-)

    Weekend experience in the city

    The hotel was in the perfect area - close to the centre but not right in the centre. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Everything you need for a getaway to Amsterdam.

    The room was very small. This is fine for a short stay (4 days or less) but may cause problems for someone with more luggage

    The Backstage Hotel - Cool, Relaxing, Cheap and Friendly!! :)

    Great stay at this Hotel. Very Friendly staff and a good budget price. Very close to a buzzing square with many food, coffeeshops and pubs. Lots of Live music and shows around this area. Short 15/20 minute walk to red light district and central amsterdam, down beautiful alleys and streets and the tram runs from the square if you dont want to walk. I will stay again when i return - plus its cool that everything is made from musical instruments - our light was a drum and our bed made of guitar cases - so cool!! :)

    The only minus points i can think of are the noise of the hoover at 9.30am every morning waking us up as they hoover and clean the hallway outside and other rooms, and that my shower gel and washing stuff went missing when i left it in the shower, but i guess i should have kept it in my room. Apart from these two very minor gripes it is a lovely, relaxing hotel.

    Cozy and affortable

    The location is great. Five minute walk to train that will take you to the Central Station. A lot of really nice restaurants and bars all within walking distance.

    No toliet or shower in the room but there is a sink. The stairs are almost vertical and no lift.
