What an amazing place to stay! Stayed in Amsterdam for 3 nights to explore and stumbled across Lucky Lake and so pleased we did. We stayed in a 2 bed cabin and it was ideal for what we needed. The facilities are superb, clean and spacious kitchen area, clean and spotless bathrooms and toilets, great reception area, suoerb armosphere and having breakfast on a bus was fun. The staff are amazing and really helpful, always ensuring everyone and everything is going ok! Highly recommend!

Great place to stay as it was very chilled out, good vibes and colourful. Nice to be away from all the activity in the city.

I stayed in 3 hostels while in Amsterdam and this one definitely outweighed the rest. The staff were nice, the scenery is beautiful and it's not too far from the city. Plus the whole "camp site" thing going on is super cool and unique. Had the best couple nights there ever and I'll definitely be at this hostel when back in Amsterdam.

What an amazing place!!! We stayed three nights and wish we could of stayed more. The best hostel we have ever stayed in. Staff so friendly and helpful. Free table tennis. Kayaks to hire. Breakfast is also really good! Food items from reception reasonably priced. best 3 days of our travels so far!!

This was a simply incredible hostel! The little campers you sleep in are cozy and adorable, the lake is beautiful, the location is a little off the beaten path but it is, without a doubt, worth the extra half hour it takes to get there. The staff was friendly and accommodating when our flight was delayed so we got in after midnight. I would highly recommend it!

The thing is, it was raining the whole time and the majority of the hostel is outside! Terrible wifi if any wifi at all and it was super far from the city center-and the last metro from the city center back to the hostel is early, at 12:30am. I am sure it is a beautiful hostel when the weather is nice and the the staff were sweet! Also they had a life-saving shuttle bus from the metro stop to the hostel. It was either that shuttle bus or a 40 euro taxi.

Fortunately we had the chance to improve our WiFi and it's working good again now. Sorry we couldn't change the weather:-) As written clearly on the booking site, we are situated outside of the city. The last free shuttle bus pick up is at 1.30 am after that the only option is taking a taxi back to the hostel for 40 euro. If you're coming to Amsterdam to party, we might not be the best place for you to stay. Thanks for appreciating our staff and leaving this review!

I bounced from hostel to hostel through Europe for just over a month and this one was hands down the absolute best one! I had an amazing experience at this place and would highly recommend it. Very chill environment, beautiful country side to bike through, free ping pong and foosball, great people, kind and helpful staff, this place had it all.

O wow what a fantastic review. We're very pleased that you think we're the best hostel you've stayed at, thank you.

Fantastic place, friendly staff and ridiculously comfy beds. Only downside is distance from the hostel to the city centre, but the hostel itself is so great that you quickly forget about this. Nearby lake is also stunning, especially at sunset. Highly recommended.

Wow. What a great place. Stayed for two nights in the city center and two nights at lucky lake. Super nice staff, great rooms, all we needed was some better weather. Great place to unwind after being in so many big cities.

I really enjoyed lucky lake. Although outside the city, the commute in was easy, and being near a beautiful lake was well worth it. I stayed in a 4 person dorm, and the room was nice and comfortable. The social environmen was great, and very laid back. I really enjoyed the included breakfast, which added a ton of value. The only negatives for me were the wifi (which i rarely got), and the fact that there was only 1 set of washrooms, which can be a mission to walk to in the night. great place!!!

The best place to chill and the staff were very cool and helpful. The view around the hostel was amazing and big thanks to the free shuttle, it makes things a lot easier. Definitely a must try place for teens

The only thing we could fault is the location, otherwise everything was perfect, very helpful staff and the campsite was idealic.

Thanks for making people aware of our location by leaving this review. We're happy to hear you've enjoyed your stay.

Honestly, when choosing a hostel, location is everything, and that is a big thing Lucky Lake didn't have. It is a fifteen minute shuttle ride to the nearest station, and another 20 minute train ride into the city. I also struggled with fact that the trailers only have tiny source heaters, and Holland is COLD! We shivered the whole first few nights there. Positives, the staff is great, the hostel is unique and quirky, and people very friendly.

In spite of our location we're happy to know that you did like the hostel;-) On the booking site it's pretty clear that we are located outside the city. It takes a bit more effort to go to the city and back, in return you do get to stay in a relaxed and beautiful area. We're sorry to hear you were cold, wish you would let us know so we could provide you some extra blankets. Thank you for leaving us a truthful review.

I really had a great time a Lucky Lake ! It's clean and the staff is really nice. The only negative point would be that the wifi wasn't working on our cellphones (me included a bunch of other people) but there's some computers you can use and you're kind of far from the Amsterdam centre but it's really easy going to that point. The problem is you have to come back by midnight in you don't want to pay a cab 40 euros so you can't come back really late and the night life in Amsterdam is great.

We're happy you had a great time. Unfortunately we're having some some troubles with the WiFi, sorry about that. The last shuttle is at 1.30 am so party people have 2 options, the taxi for €40 or party the whole night and come back in the morning. Thanks for leaving this review. Party people, be aware of this please :-)
