Most disgusting, slimy place i've ever been. The staff were rude and dirty. Disgusting crowd that go there too, really dodgy and easy to get pick pocketed. Do not trust any of the staff, they won't let you in unless you tip them, so rude.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
