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 :-)

It was a really pleasure to stay at the lucky lake: Its a kind of hippie campsite with fanciful caravans, comfortable beds and an especially, warm athmosphere. With uncomplicated shuttle plus metro it takes no more than 30 minutes to get to the town center. So we could "enter" Amsterdam and could have a peaceful camping at the same time - perfect combination!

This is the best place to stay in amsterdam I felt like I was at a music festival all the time. Having the country is so nice for bike rides and it is not hard to get into the city. Just stop looking and stay here!

Good if you're looking for a more serene weekend in Amsterdam. This hostel is in the suburbs, so it is difficult if you want to stay out in the central area of Amsterdam without having to pay for a taxi or risk missing the shuttle bus. The free shuttle was a nice touch.

Thanks for your review. We are not the best place to stay if you like to party in Amsterdam. If you like to come "home" to a relaxed atmosphere after a long day in the busy city and unwind, come and stay!

We went in familly during a week end to visit Amsterdam so we spend so much time in the "camping"; but the few hours we spend there were very appreciated. People from Lucky Lake Hostel are very friendly. The rooms, bathrooms and other accomodations are cleans. Special mention for the decoration of the caravans! That's a funny & cool place for living. To go to Amsterdam downtown, it's not complicate with the shuttles and metro (30min). Definitively a hotel to recommend !!!

we loved Lucky lake! the hostel is a bit far from the city center but their shuttle runs frequently. We had a 3 person trailer and the beds were by far the most comfortable beds we had during our Europe trip. Breakfast was great.The shower was hot and always available. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful! Thank you lucky lake, hopefully see you again!

I love Lucky Lake! The location was not a problem at all they have a shuttle that goes to and from Holendrecht station (30mins from Ams Centrale), the place is so clean, there is a beautiful lake 5mins away from the hostel, the breakfast is great (vs others I have tried), the staff is helpful (I even asked them to print stuff for me). This place is just amazing.

Completely in LOVE with this hostel! It deserves more than a 100%! The location was beautiful and the free shuttle was a huge help (yes it's about 30 minutes from the city, but I won't deduct points from it because you should be aware it's away from the main part of AMS. But it's totally worth it trust me) the workers were super friendly and very helpful. And it was VERY clean. Can't wait to return! Please check this place out! You won't regret it! Already miss it!

Lucky lake is situated in a lovely area and is pretty convenient to get to the city center. The only thing I would reccomend is the staff provide some guidance to first timers about the train / metro into the station. Its very confusing as the train is different from the metro and the tickets are bought in different places.
