We stayed at Truelove Antiek & Guesthouse which was listed in the RS book. We were there on a weekend in July, so prices tended to be higher. We paid 95 Euro per night for a double. It wasn't fancy, but it was great. Nielson met us at the train station and was very nice. We were barely even 5 minutes walk from the station - that was fabulous. Loved the neighborhood, and while the room we had on the ground floor was a little musty smelling, it was clean and secure. Our friends had the top floor (a huge challenge with suitcases), that had no musty smell. Here is the website: And yes, would book a room/apt with them again.

Whatever you do, do something quickly. Amsterdam is very popular at the beginning of September and a lot of places are fully booked.

Kaline- This link has three hostels on it in Amsterdam. There is a new hostel in Amsterdam that opened in July '07. It has space available for my trip in September

In Rick's Best of Europe '07 book he mentions a person that can find rooms in private homes starting at 25 Euros a night.

My partner and I booked 2 nights here earlier this week (June 2013) based on online reviews and listings in past Rick Steve's guides. We cannot recommend you stay here. In short the management is inattentive to their guesthouse. We had the upper room with bath on 2nd floor, living room on 3rd floor and sleeping area on a 4th floor attic with low ceiling. The stairs are narrow and winding and until I exchanged a light bulb they were dark. When we arrived midday no one was present and we called and waited at a cafe across the street, a scene which we noticed repeated for others guests. Some waiting an hour to be given keys to their room. When the host arrived for us he had two other guests in tow that were unhappy with their room and were told to shut up while he checked us in. The accommodations may have been good in the past but were deteriorating. Multiple lights didn't work, a shelf by the TV was broken, a wardrobe was falling apart, a daybed that folded into a chair had a broken frame, a floor lamp's shade was torn, the TV remote didn't work, and two light fixtures were broken and hanging by their wires.
The host attitude seems to be not to bother with repairs or the guests. Stay elsewhere.
