I can't recommend Lucky Lake enough. Of the 4 different hostels my friends and I stayed in during our trip over the last 2 weeks, Lucky Lake was by far the most enjoyable, and without a shadow of a doubt the best value for money. The atmosphere was immeasurably friendly and relaxed, the staff were unbelievably pleasant to deal with, and the location was perfect. Only 30 mins and 2 Euro from the city. To those thinking of staying here, do! To the staff at the hostel, thank you!

Wow! 100% that's awesome. Thanks for recommending us and leaving this great review. The metro ticket costs 2,90 for a one way into the city so please calculate 5,80 per person per day for transport if you're looking into staying with us.

Beautifully furnished hostel in a lovely location near a lake. I would recommend this place for people who want to have a relaxing time away from the city. It was super clean and the breakfast was great! If you're a solo traveller and looking to meet people and mingle it's not the most social hostel as there are no activies planned. It would be a great location for a group of friends.

The hostel is a ten minute car ride from the nearest metro station then a twenty minute ride into the city center, which becomes a hassle, but is manageable.

Loved the staff, beyond what you expect same goes for the facilities. Food drinks and snacks available. Nice cooking area, breakfast included was lovely. Free maps and information. The shuttle bus was amazing and free they picked you up from the station whenever and took you there whenever within reason. Would highly recommend if you don't mind travelling to the centre everyday or just looking to chill at the site !!

Very cool hostel. If you're looking for a place to get out of the city and have some good time to think or just chill, this is definitely the place for you. I'm a solo traveler, and it could have been that I stayed during the weekdays, but I didn't see many other solo travelers or people that seemed open to meeting. The location is a little inconvenient for being in the city, but I personally preferred the area outside of the city more. Very nice staff too!

Beautiful and great green area close to the lake. Very nice and helpful staff; a great Holiday place to chill out and save energy. Also a social place with great conditions to meet new people. And so awesome with the shuttle transport. I will definetely come Again!

We had a great stay at Lucky Lake! Very clean, charming, quiet, but especially a very helpful and friendly staff, great breakfast selection. We loved to stay close to the lake, and the transfer to Amsterdam was uncomplicated.

In one word: WOW! I plan on visiting Amsterdam again and Lucky Lake is the only place I want to stay. The friendliest staff around and the most amazing atmosphere. I only stayed 3 nights but next time I will make it a much longer stay. Amsterdam is an amazing city but having a safe and clean hostel to escape to after a hard day/night of partying and sight seeing is so refreshing. Met some amazing people from all over. The shuttle service/ metro is so convenient. No problems getting around :) :)

Wacky place, but fun and definitely a cheap option to stay near Amsterdam. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Be sure you are a few minutes early for the shuttle at Holendrecht. I missed it by 30 seconds once, which was a bummer. Take a day and just explore the lake and nearby town; it's worth it! Included breakfast is nice but pretty light (cereal, yogurt, tea, coffee, etc.). They did have eggs one day. Showers and toilets were always clean and available. Kitchen was nice for small meals.

Thanks for your nice review! Every day we have something at breakfast to make yourself, like eggs, pancakes and poffertjes. We also have a small selection of bread; brown, white and baked breadies. Thanks for staying and safe travels!!

For people who like to walk everywhere, location sucked (had to rely on a shuttle to get to the metro, then pay for the train in and out of the city). Hostel itself was clean and cute, had bike rentals, was near a lake. Beds were really comfortable. Breakfast was decent - bread and juice, but you had facilities to make your own. Staff seemed to be a bit of their own group and not always approachable.

Thanks for your review. It's stated clearly on the booking site that we are not situated in the city and that you need to take our free shuttle bus from the metro station. Transport costs 5,80 euro for a return ticket on the metro so please keep this in mind when making the booking. We believe our staff is very friendly and approachable and we're sorry if we gave you the feeling we weren't there for you. Safe travels!

It such a nice Hostel. Lovely people, lovely place. Such a great idea to use caravan's and cabin's as a Hostel. Very colorful and worth an experience. Weather was a bit cold, but definitely a place to come back especially when the sun is out. Thanks for having us and for my LOVED flamingo tray :) DANK JE WEL!!

Me and my boyfriend visited Amsterdam to celebrate an anniversary, i emailed lucky lake to ask if they could do anything special for us and said i would pay. When we arrived there was a bottle of prossecco and chocolates in our room and for no extra charge! I was very impressed and would like to thank the staff for going that extra mile for us! We had a great stay! The shuttle bus is really handy, the cinema is great, the showers are clean and the breakfast is lovely! Overall amazing
