The best thing about this place is its location, it's one step away from the red light district so you can walk to city centre in a few minutes and to the main attractions of Amsterda.Laszlo, the owner, is a very nice,easy going and helpul person. On the downside,the bed was very uncomfortable,you couldn't move without making a lot of noise and the matress sunk in the middle.The bathroom doesn't have any separation between the shower and the rest,so it gets all wet when you use it. Overall good.


The owner is nice and accommodating. Only big downside is their is no reception/concierge so you kind of have to hunt down the owner if you need something. He is extremely down to earth and very nice just a tad hard to find.

Everything is fine how it is, we had a good stay here, thank you Laszlo!


Absolutely amazing, couldn't think of anywhere better to stay! Lazlo is a great host and can't do enough for you! Can not wait to be back at the lazy monkeys guesthouse! Fantastic location and nice rooms. Just what you need.

Wonderful location, right in the city center and near the RLD with a beautiful view of the canal. The room was cozy however very dimly lit and made getting ready to go out in the evenings very difficult. Lazlo was helpful to some extent but lost his temper with us coming home late one night and handled the situation at the time very unprofessionally though did apologize afterwards, but still felt uncomfortable staying there the remaining days. I unfortunately would say I would not return.

Owner Comment (Hide)
You changed your booking about 3 times which was not a problem we work along with you. You arrive 6 hours late from your original arrival time which you set I did not say a word. You were explained about the house rules which includes being quiet after midnight which you did not seam to understand,and as a result of that all other people in the guesthouse complained, telling me how disrespectful you behaviour is.but that did not matter to you at all. We do not mind if you do not return.


Owner was really friendly and made our stay super relaxed. Only problem was the hostel didn't have a sign so we struggled finding it. Probably because we weren't organised enough though.
