Bottom Line

Located in the historic city center, the two-pearl Budget Hotel Tourist Inn attracts young solo travelers and groups of friends with its modern and youthful style. Its 37 private and shared rooms are small, but they offer flat-screen TVs, lockers or safes, and free Wi-Fi, and most have air-conditioning. Some rooms have en-suite bathrooms. The hotel offers a free breakfast as well as snacks and drinks for a fee, public computers, and bike rentals. The central location is within walking distance of most major attractions and public transportation, including Amsterdam's central train station. Another alternative to consider is Hotel Fita, which is near the Van Gogh museum and offers rooms with Nespresso coffeemakers, though rates can be more expensive.

Oyster Hotel Review

Budget Hotel Tourist Inn


Trendy hostel with private and shared rooms 

Budget Hotel Tourist Inn is a hotel/hostel hybrid set in two buildings -- a modern canal house and a smaller building located behind it. Inside, the decor is lively and modern with a lobby that has cream tiles, a caramel colored booth with public computers, and a white desk with geometric cutouts. There’s a collection of snacks for sale behind the front desk. The small lobby morphs into the breakfast room, which is the main social zone. White tables and blond-wood chairs front a statement wall -- a long photograph of a nighttime scene in Amsterdam -- and panels with neon back lighting. The hallways are similarly stylish with large photo prints and orange elevators, doors, and trim. Note that the second building lacks an elevator, requiring guests to haul suitcases up steep narrow stairs. Overall, the property has a youthful, hip vibe that draws mainly young solo travelers and groups of friends.

Central location near Dam Square, within walking distance of major attractions and dining

One of the biggest draws of the hotel is its central location just off of Spuistraat, one of Amsterdam’s most central roads lined with restaurants and hotels. Dam Square and the central train station both take seven minutes to reach on foot, while the Anne Frank House is a nine-minute walk away. The Red Light District is a 10-minute walk away, and the popular Jordaan neighborhood is a 12-minute walk from the hotel. Other sites, like Vondelpark or the Museum Quarter with the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum, can be reached by tram or bus in under 15 minutes. Schipol Airport can be reached in about 25 minutes by car or public transportation.

Shared rooms with flat-screen TVs, lockers, and free Wi-Fi; some private rooms with en-suite bathrooms

The hotel offers both private rooms and shared dorms. Decor is clean and contemporary with playful orange statement walls or nature-themed photo murals, aqua blue curtains, and wooden floors. Shared rooms have a combination of bunk beds and single beds, while private rooms are equipped with one or two small twin-size beds. Don’t expect spacious rooms -- they’re all quite cramped. All rooms have free Wi-Fi, free towels, bed linens, pillows, and flat-screen TVs, which isn’t common in hostels. Lockers are provided in dorms, while private rooms have safes. There’s air-conditioning in all rooms besides the five- and six-person rooms. Some of the private rooms have en-suite bathrooms that are clean and contemporary (though small) and come with hairdryers, showers, and shower gel in dispensers. Private rooms without en-suite bathrooms come equipped with sinks and hairdryers. The shared bathrooms offer showers, shower gel dispensers, and toilets, though no hairdryers.
