I am planning a trip there in November (thanksgiving) any advice on where to stay would be greatly appreciated. I would like to be able to walk everywhere for the most part, and cheap is good :-) Anybody know of any BJJ there too ? Thanks!

I had the pleasure of spending just over a year in Amsterdam so I can't recommend it highly enough - A FANTASTIC city!!! I only really know the 5*hotels cos that's where I worked but if any names spring to mind I'll post again. There are loads of 3* hotels in the centre of Amsterdam so it shouldn't be too much of a problem getting somewhere. As for BJJ - there is a gracie affiliate in Purmerend which is just north(ish) of Amsterdam if you're keen. There are a couple of MMA / kickboxing gyms in Amsterdam which have produced some awesome fighters - Vos Gym springs to mind (fox gym).

try the bulldog hostel, do a google search, it is sweet, single rooms there, feels like a episode of fear and loathing in las vegas. right in the middle of the red light district.

i have been going to amsterdam once a year for 12 yrs except for this year i have absolutely no intention of going back until things change. by things i mean all the fuckin nigerian crackheads that have doubled in numbers every year since 1999 now you cannot enter the dam square without having some junky dribbling out the words coke? charlie ecstacy? you look in any lane ways and their there waiting to pounce and sell you their crap and theres allways 6 or more round the corner with knifes just waiting for trouble. amsterdam barring all the fuckin immigrant junkies is one of the greatest places on earth but sadly the junkies are there and their a major issue now. amsterdam is the only place were you can be walking home and some stunning blonde will stop in the street turn to a pimp and ask how much to fuck another woman though :D

Is this just something that happens at night: I spent a whole day there last month and never saw a single begger or crack head?
