For example I have a testing block like this:

contract('CreeptomaPresale', function(accounts) {
    describe("adopted over allow quantity", function () {
        it("test get balance", async function () {
            let instance = await CreeptomaPresale.deployed();
            console.log("deployed address:" +  address)
        });
    });
});

I can get deployed address. But now, I don't know how to get balance of this address or any other addresses.

Thanks

Try

contract('CreeptomaPresale', function(accounts) {
    describe("adopted over allow quantity", function () {
        it("test get balance", async function () {
            let instance = await CreeptomaPresale.deployed();
            console.log("deployed address:" +  instance.address);
            let balance = await web3.eth.getBalance(address)
        });
    });
});

    The first one. Truffle does some setup, and you're neatly passing accounts into your test. Transactions are signed {from: accounts[0]} by default. As a matter of style, I like to set up some vars for roles like owner=accounts[0], funder=, sponsor=, etc. up front and then specify who is talking every step of the way, e.g. {from: funder1} Apr 18 '18 at 5:14
  • thanks so much. I have used this style, but it seems not work. can you take a look for me in this post. thanks. ethereum.stackexchange.com/questions/46066/…

  • This should be instance.address not address

For newer versions of Truffle, according to the example, it should actually be:

let balance = await web3.eth.getBalance(instance.address);

Otherwise, you will get the following error:

ReferenceError: address is not defined
