After spending 5€ on a phone card and 6.2€ for tram tickets to the inn (on a student budget), we waited for 45 minutes at the front door in the cold without being met. Arranged other accommodations, the cheapest being 200€ for two nights (an event had all hotels asking top prices). Voicemails were left on my phone in the U.S.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi Ken, It is a mirakle to me how you could wright such a comment. After let me waiting hours for you to show up, you called (with a private number) from the Central Station to tell you are on your way to our apartment. When i tryed to call you back to tell youi could not make it, i was in a meeting, you didn't take your U.S. phone.. How could i reach you and why you did not try to reach me? 99% of our guests, who realy stayed at us are very happy, you did not even gave it a try. Regards, Greg.


I've visited Amsterdam many times (5 to be precise) and this is by far my favourite Hostel/Inn. Very clean, modern and in a lovely district with plenty of eating and drinking opportunities. Slightly disappointed with the Double room having single beds pushed together. The district gives you a feel of the real Amsterdam away from the tourist fog. Although 20 min walk from the centre, there is good public transport links nearby that go every couple of minutes into the heart.


really nice owner, the room looks even better in real then in the pictures :) i'd def recommend this to other people ! -Paul & Sun.

What a delightful stay in Amsterdam. Greg is an incredible host to his city.


This hostel was fantastic! Moreso an appartment - it was like a really nice and clean hotel with a brilliant shared bathroom. Well situated within walking distance to great areas to go out in Amsterdam and also the trams to the Central station. Definitely reccomend this hostel! Oh, and the guy that runs it is really friendly too!


This was the best place we stayed out throughout our entire Europe Trip. Greg (the owner) was amazingly nice. Definitely would come back.


Would have been great if there was a safe to put passport etc in. Good location 5 mins from tram to centraal station and 10 mins to vondel park bike rental near and also supermarket Lovely decor inside, minifridge inside room With pricing nad location would definitely stay there again!


Lovely big room, clean facilities. Great if you like to be left alone to your own devices.


This was an absolutely fabulous place to stay. The location was just outside of the city center which provided a quiet get away after crazy days and nights out and about. Greg the owner was a tourists dream and offered great insight into places to take in and things to do around the city! Fantastic.


Excellent location near main entertainment district, in a very nice area. Apartment great - very clean with shared bathroom and lovely balcony.


We had a really good time during our stay at the Helmers Inn. The room was nice, the beds comfortable and the terrase is excellent. Absolutely recommend this accomodation!


Evertything was great, but we wish we knew someonelse than the 4 of us renting 2 rooms shared the toilet and bathroom with us...


a really nice and clean house in a very good location. better than an hostel, you just feel at home.
