All together the place was neat and we were very happy with everything, the only objection would be to the fact that they started repainting the cabin while we were still inside.


It's an hour from Amsterdam, so not very convenient. But it is very cheap and there's nothing wrong with the place really. It is annoying that they don't provide toilet paper and that you must pay 1 euro for 6 minutes hot water. Aside from that no problems.


Fantastic stay, really enjoyed being that little bit further away from the city. The metro ride drops you round the corner or you can catch a 10min bus ride to the front door. It really gave us a chance to see more suburban areas outside the city which was lovely. We had read negative reviews about staff but everyone we spoke to was lovely. The cabins were lovely and very comfortable, the scenery around the camp is gorgeous. The last highlight were all the bunnies everywhere.


I didn't appreciate my stay at this camping. There's a big forest right next to the place and it's wonderful. Unfortunately, you have to pay to have hot water in the shower, you also have to pay for the toilet paper and there's no fridg in the kitchen. Plus, it's wrote that there's wi fi but it only works in the kitchen and in the batroom. The day I'll go back to amsterdam, I won't stay at this camping. But, if you need calm and be woken at 6 in the morning by a cock, that's the place for you!

I thought it should be more 'emphasized' that we would have to pay for our sheets (caught us by surprise and we arrived late and there was nobody to attend us.. we even had to take a freezing shower), even because i'm not used to see hostels charging for that.. I would also like to see chonometers at the showers since we have only 6 minutes of hot water for a euro and nobody likes to end the bath freezing and neither spend a euro just to get that last wash to take the soap off. Great place!

Bostel Amsterdam Camping is a fraud and a scam. An employee of the camping placed us in the wrong cabin, the next day the boss of the camping told us to 'get of his property' and threw us off the camping site. We were three young backpackers traveling, and had done nothing wrong. He would not let us explain, was very offensive and also threatened us to pay for the entire stay of three days after kicking us out. It was an uncomfortable experience I do not wish upon any others. You are warned.


The extra charges mean that it would cost about the same to stay in the center of Amsterdam in a hotel (here you have to pay for heating, towels, bed sheets, showers, no toilet roll provided, metro to get there). Staff were unfriendly and when we told them we'd missed our flight they were not helpful at all, just said 'buy a tent' . They didn't give us any suggestions on what to do and were not sympathetic at all. The showers were full of mud and after buying a token the hot water didn't work!
