Absolutely loved this hostel and the vibe it had going! As someone who doesn't smoke, I was worried about how I'd fit in at a hostel in Amsterdam but I met lots of cool people - smokers and non smokers alike - and wish I could have stayed longer! By far the best hostel experience I've had in Europe.

Our room was freezing when we got there late at night (my flight was delayed) so the first night was horrible because it was literally freezing even when the heater was running the whole night. The second and third night was manageable because we asked for extra blankets. The free breakfast was really great. I wish that the reception would stay open later than 11pm..

Alternative style hostel south of Amsterdam. Nicely decorated and with good opportunity to meet up with people. Common room was mostly outdoors, so only with good weather you can hang out with others. A warm summer night will be really nice though at this hostel. Recommended!

I couldn't ask for more! One staff member, Rose, went out of her way to assist me in my travel plans, even getting me last minute information from the internet 2 minutes before I was due to leave. I made good use of the lake, on-site cinema and Dutch pancakes for breakfast. Couldn't recommend it highly enough. Thanks for a great stay.

I believe that Lucky Lake hostel is almost a reason per si to visit Amsterdam. Despite being away from city centre, the space itself is magical and great for a good night sleep away from a busy noisy city. I went soon after the beginning of Spring so the nocturnal weather was not the most inviting for guests to hang around on open air socializing but the facilities are great. Nuria and the rest of the staff were very helpful and hard working. This hostel is well worth my money!

Really cool hostel and amazing staff. We had such a wonderful time there. Even though the location is outside of Amsterdam, the free bus-services and the team made up for that big time!

We really loved this hostel. Staff were awesome and always wondering if they could help us with anything. The free breakfast was great where we could make our own pancakes, Dutch pancakes, and eggs on alternating days. We stayed in a cabin that had very nice built in bunkbeds and a table to sit around. We made use of the beautiful location by walking to the nearby lake and renting bikes to go into the nearby town. Highly recommend this hostel.

If I could've stayed longer, I would've. The staff are really helpful and nice. I didn't feel alone at all. The free breakfast was a big big plus. The cabin where I stayed was clean and warm. The shower rooms and toilets were kept clean. The overall atmosphere was cool.

Apart from the location ( 20mins from centre to Holendredcht and 10-15mins to the hostel by shuttle bus) and the super weak wifi, everything else is great: staff are very friendly and helpful, rooms arr clean, the atmosphere and environment are great.

We are working on our WiFi and it should be as fast as a rabbit soon:-) As we're not situated in the city you'll have to calculate some time for travelling however we hope our hostel and our great staff will make your stay unforgettable. Thanks for leaving us a review.

Great place, location is not a bummer due to their reliable shuttle service. The only thing we regret is that we couldnt enjoy it as much due to the cold weather.

This was by far my favorite hostel I've ever stayed at! The staff were so wonderful and the accommodations comfortable. I would stay here again in a second. Additionally, Brooke, a staff member from New Zeland, was the most positive and adorable thing I've ever seen! Made everyone excited to be in Amsterdam despite the rainy weather.
