It'sa little bit far from the city. But if you need a place to relax after the parties in a heavy weekend, this is a good place.

:-) If you are coming to Amsterdam to party, we might not be the best accommodation, located outside of the city. If you are coming to see the city and relax....Come and stay with us!

I booked this place to stay for a group of us to begin our inter-rail trip through Europe. We had a great time and would have loved to have stayed longer. The surrounding area was beautiful and relaxed. Getting in and out of Amsterdam city was easy. Hope to return some day!

Where to begin?! Lucky Lake is incredible. We stayed in one of the cabins which was small but fit our needs perfectly. It was adorable! The location was a little away from the city but that was perfect. It allowed us to experience the countryside of the Netherlands while still going into the city easily on the train. The entire atmosphere was so laid back and perfect. Everyone is so chill! The cabin, showers, and bathrooms were always clean. Definitely worth the money!

The location is a short ride from the city center, BUT it is totally worth it! Being in the city center all day, feeling the vibe and atmosphere of the young, fun, and chaotic scene is awesome, but being able to come out and experience the country-side is amazing! The lake is unbelievable, the hostel is super chill, the people are awesome, the breakfast is awesome...all around, this hostel is AWESOME. I've been telling everyone I meet who plans to visit Amsterdam to stay here...

This is a little hidden treasure close to a town called Abcoude 30 minutes away from central Amsterdam on public transport. In spite of not such ideal location, the organized shuttle schedule made it very easy for us to go back and forth to central Amsterdam almost everyday. The hostel was super clean although all the facilities were shared. The staff is very competent and does an impressive job of running such nice hostel.

Hallo I'm Lena, I was with Jesús in Lucky Lake the Weekend 12. - 14. July. It was all so good, the Staff, the place... The atmosphere of your place is perfect balance! We love it, all! We have one question. We have a lot of friends and we would like to do a trip to Lucky Lacke all together, to practice "Dapo" in your little paradise. I would like to know, if we have some discount when we are about 20 people. When would be better to come and have a convinient price and not die of cold?

This is the cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in, but also the coolest and most home-y. Lucky Lake really got something right here!

Amazing hostel, great food, showers and rooms. Such a friendly vibe, felt so welcome. The distance was only a issue because the metro was getting re-done, else wise I could not have cared less, such a beautiful little place!

Yes, it's a pain they have closed the metro between Central station and Amstel station. Fortunately there is a train, cheaper then the metro but less often. Thank you very much for your comment.

We loved Lucky Lake Hostel! The atmosphere was unique and fun, with brightly colored caravans, funky sculptures, hammocks, and friendly/hungry ducks. The showers and toilets are extremely clean, and there is a kitchen area with refrigerators and stoves. The highlight of our stay had to be the bicycle tour with Larva. Getting to see the villages and countryside, including a tour of a working windmill and a refreshing dip in one of the canals, was an experience we will never forget.

This hostel was a welcome break after being in the busy city centre for a few days. The staff are really great, helpful and generally fun to be around. Our dorm was lovely, and the showers and toilets are so much better than most hostels. The atmosphere of this place is what makes it so special, the outdoor spaces with a kitchen, seating area, hammocks and ping pong are fantastic. The lake closr by is also beautiful. I highly recommend this hostel!
