Great place to stay! Felt like we were kids back at camp again. A little out of the way, but with the easy bus system and free shuttle it was nice to get out of the city each evening. Staff were great at answering all of our questions and accommodating our last minute requests. Also great activities available if you didn't want to head into the city. We rented a bike ride! They provided us with lots of easy info on the hostel rules and activities in the area. Would definitely visit again!

We had a fantastic stay at the Lucky Lake! The place is unique- warm, friendly, colourful and full of lovely Little Details. It is a great Location also because you can relax from busy Amsterdam and the free shuttle takes you to the Station from where it is a short train ride to the centre of the city. Lovely and helpful staff as well. Thank you so much!xx

By far the best hostel we have stayed in yet. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The facilities were excellent (smoking room, cinema etc) we loved hammocks. Although it's quite far out of the centre the free shuttle bus the hostel provides makes what could be an issue insignificant. It was actually nice to be out of the centre as the hostel is in a beautiful location. We were able to hire bikes and the BBQ. The hostel had a homely atmosphere and we were all sad to leave.

Wasn't really a party hostel. Very laid back and by midnight there isn't much happening which was a bit of a disappointment considering the location is not great and wasn't easy to go out etc. there is a shuttle but last one is at 1:30am which doesn't really help if you want to go out for a big night. In saying that the shuttle was pretty easy however doesn't drop you into Amsterdam centre, you still need to catch the Metro for 17 minutes.

Thanks for your comments. You are right, we are NOT a PARTY hostel! The information on the website is really clear. We are situated outside of the city and we have a free shuttle bus going to a nearby metro station for there it's 17 minutes to Amsterdam central station. We're very sorry that you didn't read the information and were disappointed about your stay.

Lucky Lake hostel was one of the best hostels I've stayed in. It's gives a chance to see the outskirts of the city while being only a short shuttle and metro away from the main city! Beds were comfy and clean. The hostel is less than a 10 minute walk away from an awesome lake. Staff is super chill and friendly. Very good experience and wonderful vibes! Thanks

It's the perfect hippie hideaway with kayaking, biking, swimming, and small town charm. Even the cows are happy here! Loved the nearby town Abcoude and the people are among the most friendly in the world. I would recommend this hostel experience to anyone :)

We had the best time here! We spent afew nights staying in town then spent another 4 nights here just to change things up abit, but we honestly agree that we wished we stayed here for the entirety of our stay in amsterdam. best hostel weve stayed in by far. its a nice escape from the city when you want a break, but so easy to catch the shuttle bus then 20 minute train right into centraal station. awesome.

The hostel is great. Comfy beds, clean bathrooms and good breakfast! Also the location is not central but still is really good. In my opinion is still better since we can relax at the lake very close by.

Awesome Hostel!! A little bit remote from the city - but that is more than compensated by a shuttle service. For free. And if the shuttle is full they just go for a second round. It´s a really relaxed atmosphere like you might know it from camping sites... Very calm and chilled. And with a lake!! They also provide a safe, but that one doesn´t look very thrustworthy. Never felt the need to lock something away, though.

:-) Thanks for leaving this review. The safe you're talking about is actually just a locker for your bag but you're right this is a very safe place and we're happy about that :-)

This was an amazing experience to stay in such a positive environment in the comforts of a caravan. I found the atmosphere to be pleasant and the staff were always really helpful. The location was ideal for me and my friend as we wanted somewhere away from the City centre and found it relaxing as there was always a shuttle bus to pick us up from Holendrecht station. Would definetely reccomend to anyone travelling with another person

Stayed here for three nights with my girlfriend, location at first seemed funny but journey into city centre is really easy and the shuttle is frequent and reliable! staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful! small town abcoude is only a 15 minute bike ride away which has a supermarket and a few cafes and restaurants, the bikes can be rented at a low cost! Facilities at the hostel are good, toilets and showers are clean and work well! really enjoyed our stay, really cool hostel! would return!

Even though it is a little out of the way, it was worth it! It has a great environment and I would enjoy even just staying at the hostel the whole time! Cute décor, comfy beds, near a lake so you can go kayaking if the weather is nice. They have a free shuttle to the metro every hour (until 01:00), which makes it really easy--the entire trip is about 30min but that's how long you might spend navigating metro and walking in other cities anyway. I would definitely come again.

Lovely clear review, thanks for leaving this. The last shuttle is at 1.30 am. Thanks again and take care!
