Had a really lovely stay at Lucky Lake, the cabin we stayed in was lovely and cosy, especially when the weather started to play up and it poured down we were cosy and warm in our room! The shuttle service and breakfast were also really good and nice hot showers and clean toilets were also a good feature :) overall a very lovely stay, if only the weather in Amsterdam was nicer for the couple of days :(

We were greeted by the friendliest staff and welcoming atmosphere. Staff are super helpful and the facilities at the hostel are brilliant. Facilities are clean and excellent breakfast provided. The full kitchen with all utensitls provided helped save a lot of money. The minibus service to the train station was brilliant and always on time. Be sure to book if you want to use the little cinema as it is very busy. The lake nearby is fantastic and worth going for a swim! Will definately return soon!

Loved the caravans, really cute. Showers were powerful, clean and very hot which was great! Was nice to be so close to the lake, and shuttle to the train station is very useful, it's then a short train into the centre of Amsterdam. Overall fantastic stay.

Amazing hostel! Te staff are so friendly and inviting and the atmosphere is beyond anything I've experienced at other hostels. It is a bit if a pain to get to and from the city centre but the staff do their best to accomodate this by offering free busses to and from the station. Would recommend for a group, for a solo traveller, for pretty much anyone

The best hostel in the world! Would recommand it to everybody. Clean, cosy and great service. Especially perfect if you want to relax and see the country side. Great for couples since you have your own private caravan. The atmosphere you have to feel for yourself - AMAZING.

By far the coolest place weve ever stayed, The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, The shuttle bus made the location extremely handy, Ordering pizza and toasties at the desk was so good and having free tea and coffee all day was good for sleepy morning, While your there definitely take advantage of the lake and rent paddle boards you wont regret it! This place is just amazing i would recomment to everyone to go there at least once! I plan on going back soon just for the hostel

The. Best. Hostel. Ever. Me and my friend really enjoyed staying here! Its a bit away from amsterdam city center but totally worth it! And you can easily go to the city for day and then come back. This place was so cosy, calm and near beautiful little town and a beach. I would stay at this hostel again in a heartbeat! And probably will visit it again! Dont hesitate to book this hostel! :) very good beds, showers and stuff.

A very nice and comfortable place if you are short on Money. You get warm water, breakfast, a shuttle to the next trainstation and a great Location for free. The atmosphere ist amazing, because everything got that 50s charm, i would say. I definitely would have stayed longer if it was possible.

Really enjoyed our stay, the atmosphere was perfect and everyone we met was absolutely lovely. Only problem was that we were only there for two days! Will hopefully be returning at some point in the future.

Was the best hostel I have ever stayed in! Staying in a caravan was so unique, but didn't feel like camping more like glamping! The staff where all very kind, breakfast was nice and having the lake and bike rides around made it even better! Already want to go back!

Great location, real chilled vibes a nice break from the craziness involved in interailing, and the lake is a nice touch it's always busy, plus it's real handy to get into the city at night to get to bits

Very clean facilities, free WiFi, free breakfast. Smoker friendly, but they have a separate lounge for non-smokers if you don't partake. Staff were very friendly. Free shuttle to and from the city every hour. We had more people than one shuttle could hold a few times coming from the city, and they sent out a second shuttle from the camp to pick us up. Very clean bathrooms and showers, considering it is a campground.

Lovely little place. The lake is a 5 min walk away which is pretty nice. The decor is well thought out and delightful, and there is a free shuttle bus to Holendrecht station which runs really regularly. From there you can get into central for a few euros. There are lots of private rooms so lots of groups (sometimes a downside for solo travellers?), but the dorms are nice to stay in and I met a few cool people (bear in mind I wasn't in the hostel much).

This hostel is great. The calm relaxed atmosphere is perfect after a day in the city I would say that the out of city location is a great asset to have. The staff were twiddly and helpful. No complaints from me. I look forward to reworking someday.

Beautiful area 25 mins from Amsterdam central, perfect for a quieter place (or not, depending on where you spend your time) to relax after exploring the city. Staff is super friendly too.

Best hostel we have stayed in so far. All the staff are very welcoming and are more than willing to help you out with anything. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Lucky Lake. Thanks team.

Beautiful retreat from the city. A little out of the way, but the hostel is incredibly accommodating to get travellers in and out of the city with the free shuttle. Would be ideal for those staying in AMS for more than a few days, as your time does get eaten up by getting into town, and there's plenty to explore around the hostel itself that warrants a full day.
