    Me an a few mates are gonna have an assault on the fair city of Amsterdam for the May bank holiday weekend.

    Anybody got any hotel recommendations? Standard stuff, wants to be cheap and cheerful, in the centre to 'Dam.

    Christ you dont wanna stay in the place I stayed in, bunkbed and a sink, and a place for 1 person curled in a ball on the floor. Luckily I cant remember the name of it, Christ it was a shithole.

    I stayed in the Falcon Plaza hotel when I went, quite a nice place and the windows are massive so you can lean out and have a cheeky bifta before you get to bed.

    Hotel Toren is my fav though, can be a bit pricey though.

    i stayed in a guys house that he had turned into some kinda hotel, it was well dodgey, we were in the attic room, it had sloped ceiling walls, but was well cheap and bang in the middle not to far from Lost In Amsterdam.
    i thought he was going to rob us for sure, but he didnt
    and we could smoke inside so was all gravey baby.
    got paranoid as fuck and stayed in one day just smoking
