A big hotel-like hostel with many people. The staff were helpful. A good place for a short time, but expensive.

The Hostel Meininger is more of a hotel/hostel. It's a lovely big hostel that good for all people. We stayed in a 7 bed mixed dorm - the room was really spacious and clean with a lovely shower and toilet. There are free lockers for keeping valuables safe. The hostel has it's own kitchen and washing facilities you can use and the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. It isn't in the centre but it is very easy to get there by a 5 minute train journey. Would definitely stay again!

Wasn't sure about this hostel after reading a few bad reviews but we were really surprised at just how nice it was, great staff, nice bar/ dinning and out door area. The room itself was

The hostel is quite far from the city center but is next to a train station from which you can get to the center in 20-25 minutes or so (including wait time). Breakfast is available for an extra charge; would be nice if it was included since the hostel is already so expensive. The hostel is clean and the facilities are ample. Someone took my bed one night and I had to sleep on a different bed with someone else's linen; I don't know if this was a mix-up by the cleaning staff or what.

Everything was ok, we just have problems with our keys a couple of times but that was solved immediately. If you open the bar 24h, why not selling some snacks for the hungry?

All round just a good hostel, rooms were nice and clean and spacious. This place had everything you needed and staff were great too, whether it was directions you needed or just advice they were always happy to help. The hostel had a bbq on one day which was good for socialising and the food was great too, would definitely stay here again.

We found this hostel quite handy for travelling in and out of the centre and liked that it wasn't among the hustle and bustle of the city. Lacked a bit of atmosphere in the bar area the night before we left but you'd rather be in the town at night anyway. Staff were friendly and overall the place was very clean. Would stay again.

Great facilities, but it's a huge place so not much in the way of atmosphere. Also, being so far out of the city added to costs. Having said that, it was easy to get to, beds were comfy and clean, as were showers and toilets.

Really impressed with the standard of this hostel, more like a hotel. Only slight downside was the location as you have to get a bus into Amsterdam City centre which is around 15-20 minutes ride, however the buses run regularly and through the night which was helpful.

Great place to crash; not your typical hostel. The staff were great , helpful and proactive to our needs. Overall great experience. Thanks.

I didn't get to stay there due to my delayed arrival. Without a way to call, I got into Amsterdam later than the checkin time so I did not stay here. I wished the hostel did not have a check in time as it is not fair that I arrived into town later in the day.

Over all a fine hotel/hostel, easy to get to from the train station and airport. Friendly staff and nice clean rooms. Beds with own lamp and plug. Seperate bath and toilet in the room, was super + air con. Lockers were too small(can't fit a 40L backpack) and too far from the centrum.

I was overcharged for a female dorm since the price listed here for it is the same as a single room aka book directly. Also they didn't deduct the deposit cost from the total price. in short a waste of money but otherwise a nice Hostel/hotel.

Wonderful hostel we just wished it was closer to the main part of the city. 7 min train ride into the central station but it was annoying to have to pay every day for the train. Staff was friendly and helpful. The walking tour was awesome! Bar downstairs was very cool. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Highly recommended!

was good but the location was the only problem really. when staying in Amsterdam you want to stay close to the city and this just wasn't great for a late night as the trains stop at 1 and you have to either get a late bus or a taxi. taxi costs 25 euro. I would rather that 25 be put towards somewhere closer to the city. other than that nice hostel

Excellent place to stay. Great location as its just one stop away from central and a 1 minute walk to the hotel.

It was one of the best hostels we stayed in on our trip. My only fault is that the windows wouldn't open.
