Came with friends on a weekend trip to Amsterdam. Didn't know how nice of a place I was in for! Everything looks completely brand new. Beds were clean. Bathroom was spotless. Hotel itself felt very safe. Staff was great with help for public transportation. About a 20 minute ride from the city center but easy to get there. Only 15-20 mins from airport. Train from airport drops off less than a block from hotel. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a nice place in Amsterdam!!

This place is definitely more of a hotel than a hostel, so extremely clean and with great facilities, but it is lacking in atmosphere at times - especially as there seem to be a lot of large school groups staying. I stayed in a single room which was very nice and clean but very narrow in a cabin like way. Breakfast was buffet style and pretty good. Location was a bit out of town which might be a bit inconvenient depending on what you want to do in Amsterdam -

The hostel itself was good and overall looks clean, but when it comes to a problem in the hostel, they will not help you. The house keeper stole our stuff while cleaning our room and when we went down to the front desk, they just say there's nothing they can do about it and not even trying to help to deal with the problem, this is very unacceptable especially it's a hostel / hotel.

It's a chain hotel/hostel which provides good value for money. All the facilities are top class! The only con is location: though it's really convenient to get to/from the airport, there's absolutely nothing of any interest in this area. Not even a supermarket around. Since it's a chain hotel-like hostel, don't expect any special backpacker's atmosphere here. However, it's a good place to stay.

It's a great hostel! The best I've ever been. Beautiful, modern, clean, with a good location... The only problem is their late check-in. I arrived at 10:30AM after all night traveling and their check-in is at 3PM. Luckly the staff is very kind and helpful and they maneged to clen the room faster and allow me to sleep a little. Great place!

The train station is a short 2 min walk, takes about 7-10min to Amsterdam Central. Rooms were very clean and atmosphere was very nice. Staff was friendly and provided lots of source and materials to get around the city. Train was limited for late saturday/sunday arrivals so plan ahead if you are trying to get back to the hostel

Location is 1 stop away from central station by train. But you can get to hostel from central station by bus. It takes 15 min. It would be bothering if someone wants to walk around central! Staff was friendly. They answer my questions kindly, in detail whenever I ask them

Although this hostel's location was a little far from main street and sightseeing site, I would recommend Meininger Amsterdam, cause except location problem, all other things were nice and the room was so clean!

Really a great place. The only downside is the location but it's easily solved by taking a bus or train, it's not that big of a deal.

the location could be good if you would like to stay near a train station. There are not much to do around the hostel You also have to pay transportation fees to go to the most places, which I hated most. If you would like to stay near the attraction, this hostel is not a good one to choose.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Meininger. It´s a large hostel, but still very organized and clean. We used the common areas and the kitchen and I think i´ve never seen a hostel kitchen that organized! It´s not walking distance from the main atractions, but it´s right beside a train station (one stop from central station). The staff was friendly, but always seemed too busy to help.

Great little hostel right near the main city. Place was super clean, full of lovely people, and not too loud. Definitely recommend.

It first looked quite clean, but actually staffs didn't cleaned properly. Even two days have passed after some travelers left, staffs didn't clean travelers' leftovers. Basic facilities were good, but keen conciousness for cleanliness wasn't in amsterdam city west.

Well first of all it's a very nice hostel and I did enjoy my stay very much, there were just certain things that would make me reconsider staying here again. First of all in my room, the bathroom constantly smelt like urine, even after the cleaning. The staff were very slow at their jobs it seemed and didn't really help me in showing me where places are or what to do. They were too overwhelmed with guests. And the location is literally not close to anything besides the train station.

Very nice hostel, good facilities. Breakfast was very expensive, though. And you needed to take a bus or train to go downtown. But it was a good stay overall.

The location is not at the city center, but it's very convenient to take bus, metro and train to city center. There are free towels everyday and clean the room everyday. They also equipped with shampoo and hair drier which are very sweet for a hostel ! It's the best hostel I ever stayed.

I would recommend this place to ANYONE. I've visited Amsterdam once before and stayed in a very central hotel so was skeptical to do anything else but so happy we chose this place. I read a lot of reviews complaining it was a 'little far out' it is literally a 5 minute train journey to and from Centraal. And the station is a minute walk from the hostel! I don't know why it's called a hostel, it was nothing short of a hotel, clean, comfy, great location, stupid cheap! Will stay again!!!
