A brilliant 'sleeping in caravan' concept..really good place to relax and meet people after experiencing the din in the streets of Amsterdam.

I don't have a bad word to say about lucky lake. As long as your happy for it to be a little out of the city it's a fantastic place ad the staff make you feel at home the moment you get ther.

Staff was nice and helpful. Definitely a different experience. They do a good job of creating common areas. Lucky Lake certainly nickle and dime you for little things - like a towel, bikes, and shuttle rides.

Thanks for leaving a comment. Towels are not included, we do rent them for 2 euro a piece. We have lovely bikes for rent, it's so nice to cycle and explore the surroundings and the lake. A bike is 1,50 euro per hour. On the bookingsites it's written very clearly that the 1st shuttle ride is for free and after that it's 1 euro per person per ride. All the prices(also in our little shop) are kept as low as possible for your convinience. Glad to hear you've enjoyed the lounge!

I LOVE this place. It's so nice to go somewhere where the staff actually care about interacting with you and showing you a good time. Plus it's clean, surrounded by nature AND I left my favourite jeans there and they went out of their way to make sure i got them back. Try the welsh cakes if you can too ;) cheers guys!

We find it a good thing! If you like nature, relaxing and a quiet night our hostel could be perfect for you. If you like to party, Lucky Lake might not be the best place to stay. Thank you for leaving a review!

The staff were excellent - friendly, efficient and helpful. It's hard to see how the hostel could be improved!

Oh so lovely!

Lucky Lake has great staff, good facilities and accomodations, ans a relaxed atmosphere at western European prices. It is, however, pretty far from Amsterdam itself, but a shuttle brings you to a transit station where you can get a train to the city.

Thanks for your nice review!

Love the concept and idea. Had a fantastic time during our stay. Perhaps, moving forward for improvement, Lucky Lake could consider organising activities or tours in daily or bi daily basis. Of cos with a price. This could be helpful for newcomers or during foul weather. Ie. Amsterdam city tour, trip to village n windmills or night tour to the RLD. Definitely recommend to my friends. Awesome lively n friendly staffs. Excellent!

Incredible! Such a cool and atypical hostel. If you're looking for a place near Amsterdam but away from the craziness, Lucky Lake is worth its own visit. Wish we'd planned to spend less time in the city, but we'll definitely be back. Staff is super helpful. Met a load of interesting guests. Facilities were all clean and functional. Cozy set-up. Only difficulty was taking the proper metro back to the Lucky Lake station.

Loved this place. My stay at lucky lake was the highlight of my trip! In my experience, being out of the city centre means a better time had by all and that is so true for this hostel. Its about 20 minute train ride and 15 minute 1€ hostel shittle into the city. The rooms are doubles which are cute made up caravans. I loved the atmosphere and the staff are like friends! Have fun being Dutch in amsterdam living it up by the lake, smoking in the lucky lounge or taking a bike to the local town :D

This hostel was paradise ! The caravans were clean and the bathrooms were always clean and facilities were new. There were fridges you could store your food and an outdoor kitchen to use. Staff was amazing and so helpful any question or concern they were always willing to help. They even heated up our food for us ! The atmosphere of lucky lake was so calm and relaxing. A little out of the way but there is a shuttle that will take you to the metro for a euro each way/person

I stayed 3 nights at Lucky Lake and I found it super! The people that there work are always willing to help. The hostel is 30 min away from Amsterdam, but it is not a problem at all. The place where the hostel is located is great. Near by there is a lake and a lot of nature, which is super to relax after a long day walking around the streets of Amsterdam. "Smokers"are welcomed here. The ducks run around freely and they behave like dogs asking for food. I enjoyed my stay here. 100% recommended

Very original hostel. Many services and beautiful location. The breakfast was really nice. Recommendable if you are staying in a warm season. In winter this must be like staying in a freezer because the showers and the toilets are separated from the rooms, outside. There is a transport service to get you to the nearest metro station (although you have to pay 1€ aprox.). This is really good, because the hostel is quite far from the center of Amsterdam. Best Price/quality relationship.

Thanks for your nice review and rating! We close in the wintertime due to the cold. Lucky Lake is only open from the end of March till September 15th. We don't want you to sleep in a freezer haha! Nice to hear that we're offerning good quality for the money you spend. We hope to welcome you back some day.
