Management not welcoming nor helpful. Was informed that there was certainly wifi across the park which included rooms however there was only wifi in kitchen which was very poor. However good bathrooms and generally a nice park. Difficult location though
The campground is an hour by public transport from Amsterdam (The reservation I did know this information). When making a reservation collective, only provide a key to the holder of the reservation, which can be inconvenient. The wireless connection does not have good coverage. It would be desirable to put rolls of paper in the bathrooms. The atmosphere in the camp is very good and know many people that touring Amsterdam.
Staff is very rude

Takes a little while to get to n public transport but a very satisfying hostel. Clean, cheap and situated in nice countryside.
For the money you pay its ok. Only too bad it is not 35 minuts to the city centre but more like one hour by foot and public transport. At night we took a taxi from Amsterdam to get back to the camping, which was easier and didn't take that long, but is expensive. Overall the camping is much cheaper than city hostles, but you have to take into account that you also are one hour on the road to get to the citycenter.
This place is a campsite so you pay triple for everything you can't or forgot to bring, for example HEAT/electricity 5euro extra, toilet paper. Save your money and go to a proper hostel!
Be far beyond the hoster has an employee or owner, on reception who treated me very badly, because when I arrived at the hostel reception was closed and had a note on the door indicating my bedroom and a warning to look for the reception the other day before 10 am, yet I needed to travel the 8 am flight tickets for the train and out of the hostel at 7 o'clock in the morning and the reception was still closed, and when I returned at night the reception was closed again, the next day I sought rece
I had a beautiful stay in the Bostel. All the staff were friendly towards me and considering the size of the place they manage to keep it very clean. It gets more lively on the weekends and through the week I think a lot of people use it for a bit of respite from the city. The atmosphere is what you make it and I managed to meet some lovely people from all over the world. Internet sucks, but that is the only issue I had. The kitchen is large and well equipped and the cabin I stayed in was cool.
