Lucky lake hostel was a really amazing start to our travelling holiday. The converted bus and caravans really reflected the quirks of Amsterdam. This hostel is not actually in Amsterdam centre but don't let this put you off - you can get regular metros to the pick up point and then be shuttle bussed back to the hostel. Everything was extremely clean, lots to dog ere including swim, cycle and kayak and the staff were so kind and helpful. Will be returning as a group but amazing as a couple!

Lovely hostel and the lake was beautiful. Only issue was how far away from Amsterdam but they did try to accommodate this with the free shuttle. Atmosphere is lovely and everyone was very friendly with staff helping all the time. Really enjoyed our stay.

I am sorry about the delay in writing this review. Have only good things to say. The place is very beautiful and extremely clean and tidy. Excellent breakfast. Excellent kitchen and very helpful staff. Am I forgeting to say something Yes...if you are in doubt about this hostel due to the location, I reccomend you to stay there. Because the lake is very beautiful (sunset there is a feast for the eyes!), you can ride a bike, swin, etc. We had a very pleasant stay there!

From the moment we got into the shuttle, I was amazed at the friendliness of everyone, including Lucky Lake staff. The staff members were helpful from the get go and were very knowledgeable on many subjects. I had never stayed in a hostel before and I'm glad this was my first one. It was clean, well maintained, and cute! I loved how accommodating they were (free wifi, breakfast, computer use, printing, etc). Everything about my stay was wonderful.

Lucky Lake was an awesome place to stay! Although it was a bit far from the city, the free shuttles they had every 30mins were really convenient and easy to use. The whole atmosphere of the place kind of felt like camp ground (with cabins) more so than a hostel. But all in all we really enjoyed how close to the lake and cute little Dutch town we were. If you're not too bothered by staying a bit out of town, I would definitely recommend it! Thanks, Jesika & Annika

We stayed at lucky lake while we stopped in Amsterdam on our interail trip. The staff were so friendly and helpful and there was such a cool vibe around the place! We were a bit out of the centre but the free shuttle meant the centre was so accessible! It is also set on the most amazing lake. Overall a really good stay and would recommend it to all young adults looking for a nice place to stay while being in Amsterdam!

Hostel is 25 minutes from city but well worth it. Dutch countryside is beautiful. Really cool atmosphere and really welcoming. Reception closes at 11pm and reopens at 9 which at times is inconvenient. No AC was very hot at night. Kitchen facilities are great with lots of free stuff. One big negative for me was that I had food stolen or thrown out. Hostel staff partially compensated but things were still taken. Staff charged us for transportation to train simply because "reception wasn't open."

Thanks for your comments. We have this special taxi service to the airport for €35 and to Bijlmer Arena station for €15 This service is available before the 1st shuttle at 8 am. We're so sorry someone took your 'food' from the fridge, we gave you a compensiation but feel very bad you didn't get to experience your space journey:-) We're glad you've enjoyed your stay regardless. Thanks for staying!

But far out from the centre but the frequent shuttles, plus the great and relaxed location makes it worth while. Had a great time

Super clean and really chilled out vibes. The lake is absolutely beautiful. They also have a free shuttle service that runs every hour from the train station to the hostel. Awesome staff and absolutely loved the 4 days that we stayed there. Definitely worth it and highly recommended.

Really great chilled out atmosphere that is perfect if you want a break from the party style hostels. Rooms and breakfast facilities were amazing and the staff very helpful. If your wanting to spend late nights in the city the location is a bit of a pain though.

We had he loveliest time at Lucky Lake, unfortunately it rained a lot but there is still lots to do and when it was dry we managed to rent some bikes an cycle to the nearby village. It's a great camp and our cabin was perfect, clean and comfortable. There's lots of social areas to meet and chat to people. The breakfast bus was amazing and I am missing my free breakfast already haha. The showers are great, high pressure hot water with lots of space. The best thing is the friendly staff :)

All of my friends and I from Texas had an amazing couple of nights in Amsterdam at Lucky Lake! Everyone working there was EXTREMELY pleasant and so much fun to be around! The atmosphere and experience probably cant be beat! We LOVE Lucky Lake! We will all definitely stay again if we return to Amsterdam.
