The two-star Hotel The Rookies is located on the touristy Korte Leidsedwarsstraat, just off the even more touristy Leidseplein. It’s not the cheapest hotel in Amsterdam, but it’s got a great location (near nightlife and various popular attractions) and charm to spare.
The Rookies dishes up 12 prefab rooms, each equipped with free Wi-Fi, a TV and telephone. The private baths are acceptable (some with tubs).
There is a whole Rookies family of neighboring establishments, including The Rookies restaurant, Rookies bar and Rookies coffeeshop.
Breakfast is included in the room rate. When the weather permits, it is served out back on the peaceful patio garden.

About the Amsterdam Hostel Uptown neighborhood
The most elegant area within the city center, Grachtengordel South features opulent residences, mansion-lined streets and a hot nightlife scene. The area boasts both Rembrandtplein (the city's one-time butter market) and Leidseplein (a former horse and buggy drop-off point). Both squares have been reborn as hot spots for bars, clubs, restaurants and no small number of tourist traps.
