Unfortunately it just was one night we stayed there but it was awesome. Friendly personal, the intercity train station is just one minute away. I was very surprised how clean and modern the rooms were and I will stay there the next time when I'll be in Amsterdam.

Really good hostel. Basically the same quality of amenities and services as a 4 star hotel.

Nice place, about 8 minutes on the train to get to the centre. There's one bar near the hostel which was quite fun but that's it. Room was clean and comfortable.

It was really far from the city


63%

It is worth noting that the hostel is about 30minute bus trip from the city centre which added about 10 ERuro a day onto your trip. although it was a comfortable ride. the room was clean and the lockers were great. Staff were very helpful and facilities clean.

This was an amazing experience! This was basically a hotel, rooms were cleaned every day and beds were made. The location was so perfect, 10 minutes from the city and 20 from the airport. Very comfortable beds and very helpful, friendly staff. I would recommend this hostel to anyone going to amsterdam, it was perfect!

Prejudice should not be taken in consideration ... Even if you pretend that you are friendly, some people can read you.

I was upgraded to a single man room which was good..and the hostel is right next to the sloterdijk train station which is good but the train stops running at 1 so if that's you only means of transportation then it sucks. The staff was nice, and the downstairs bar is okay, but alittle pricey.

Dear guest, Thank you for the review ! Nice to hear you enjoyed your stay in our hotel. Actually, there is a night bus that leaves from Central Station and goes to Sloterdijk. Now you know for the next time you stay with us, which would be our pleasure ! Take care, Meininger Team

Was in an excellent area and had a nice common room/bar area. The rooms were clean and well maintained.

It is like 5 star hotel but with shared bedrooms , i enjoyed staying there with the luxury room that i had , and it is also 2 minutes walk from the train station , but if you are looking for a place in the city center this will not fulfill your request.

This hostel is clean and comfortable. Ideal if you are looking to go sightseeing as opposed to partying all night, this is the place for you. Although its location is not ideal, the bus/train/tram ride into Central Amsterdam is very easy. Be aware, however, there isn't anywhere around there to eat. It would be good for groups.

Clean, comfortable rooms with lots of space. Nice bar/common area downstairs for socialising. The staff were friendly and helpful. It is a bit of a trek into the city centre which is the only downside.

Dear guest, thank you for taking the time to write your nice review ! It's always nice to hear when a guest compliments our staff members ! As for the location of the hotel, you might be happy to hear that we will open a new hotel at the Amstel Station which is more centrally located. We hope to see you soon in one of our many hotels ! All the best, Meininger Team

The facilities are always clean, but very much a hotel vibe. You must use the train or bus to get to the city centre which makes things a bit more expensive and inconvenient. Would be easier to stay closer to the main town.

I stayed there over a weekend which was really cheap compared to most other places, it defiantly had the best beds I've slept on with the most cleanest and modern rooms as well, only thing is that I wish they would have more of a food menu since there isn't to many food places around unless you want to cook your own.

It was very expensive for a hostel but when i went there i booked it last minute so I didn't have much choice but the facilities and staff where great


71%

Pros: Comfy beds, peace and quiet at night, clean bathrooms & a great common area. Cons: Check in was difficult and front desk was under staffed. The lockers in the room are faulty. Location is further out, but very close to the train & trams, so access into centraal is easy.
