Most comfortable hostel I ever been. They have everything, light for reading, GOOD lockers, amazing toilets and showers for each room, comfortable mattress, GOOD internet, really good breakfast and the receptionists are really kind. It's not so far from Centraal, one stop by train or you can take a 20 min bus on the station, which is beside the hostel. Definitely go there!

the internet is really poor,you almost cannot use it and i asked the staff where can i use the net then she just stared at her computer and said is overloading.the attitide was poor and Meiniger should spent more money on the internet! they have to make sure everybody can get on the internet because we pay for it. the envirnment is good but i can bearon no internet!

I ended up being upgraded to my own private suite which was awesome. The downside to the hostel is that there were families and children staying there. It seemed like there were no fellow backpackers which really sucked. Just a bunch of ten year olds running around. It was really difficult to meet anyone. Also, you can cook your own meals but they do not allow you to bring your own alcohol because of the bar. Got yelled at for that. The private suite upgrade was amazing. Very nice room

Clean hostel and good beds. Outside of the citycentre but ideal for a stay when you have an appointment somewhere in Amsterdam west.

I had the feeling that the staff was overwhelmed with that many guests. Aside from that, the hostel was fine.

Unfortunately the free WIFI was very unreliable and the internet we paid for was also just as bad. It took till 3am for the internet to work fast enough to check-in to our flight the next day! Staff were very helpful though and everything was in fantastic condition, having our own shower and toilet in the dorm was a big plus! While out of town the hostel is right next to one of the biggest stations so everything very accessible.

The hostel was very clean and well laid-out. The staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. Location is great, just a quick walk to a train station and a short metro ride away from Amsterdam city centre. I highly recommend the hostel.

Great breakfast,great value for money.great location next to the train station. Far too small kitchen for the size of the hostel. Our food got lost from a fridge:-( not hostel fault but they resolved it by giving us free breakfast:-) thumb up. Will stay again:-)

The second time I have stayed at a Meininger and I have not been disappointed. Staff are always friendly and helpful. Rooms are so well set up with ensuite, tv and hair dryer. Beds are made on arrival and location at the station makes traveling easy. Only let down was the construction out the front but this is beyond the hostels control. I will be using Meininger when ever possible during my trip.

Originally booked a 7-mixed room but got arranged to a 4-mixed room so that was good. However there was problems with the wifi connection on 2nd and 3rd day of my stay. But the staff was not willing to help except giving me a new username and password which did not solve the problem at all.

Hotel room was clean upon arrival but housekeeping service was poor. Internet connection was bad but adequate. Breakfast was good and staff was nice and helpful. Unfortunately, it is not possible to open the window in the rooms which was necessary sometimes. All in all a solid hotel with a good location, directly next to the railway station and good connection to public transport.

I had wonderful time there, very nice staff, quiet, resonable price, clean room but I couldn't cook any food after I saw a mice at the kitchen so do not eat the food they provide in the kitchen (Pasta, Bread etc...).

A little bit off located, but it is one of the most professionally well-managed big-scale hostel I have been to. The cleanliness and the rooms comforts are on par with a well run 3 or 4 star hotel. But internet service breaks down time and again.

The hostel was very clean and a very positive environment. There was a plug and personal light at each bed. Its a 8 min train ride to the Central station and everything is within walking distance from there.

It was my second Meininger experiment, first was in Wien. Both were pretty good. Meininger generally has a good company policy and service. However, we had small problems. For instance, though the location of the hotel seems to be close to city center, it is not quite easy to reach center. Actually it is, but it costs more than normal. Because if u use train it is just one station to the center, but u can't use daily transportation tickets in trains. Otherwise it was great
