Very confortable and clean, incredibly close to the train station, but it is closer to a hotel than to a hostel (which is not necessarily bad, of course)..

Good hostel, location is a bit out of the way but it's very easy to get into town from there. Atmosphere was more of a hotel than a hostel

I just wish they put a space in between the beds esp. if it's not a private room. My roommate's knees kept going over my side of the bed. That was very uncomfortable, even though we're both female. That was the only negative in my experience but definitely unforgettable. Putting two twin beds right next to each other.... Wth!

Dear guest, Thank you very much for your kind review! We are happy to read that you have enjoyed your stay with us. All of our twin beds are easily removed from each other. So if you felt uncomfortable with your room mate, you could have easily solved this by moving the bed towards the wall! :) Hope to see you at Meininger next time! Kind regards, Meininger Amsterdam

Overall is good. Room is clean. I guess daily cleaning. But toilet a bit small.

This hostel is relatively good but way too expensive. I paid around 50€ for a bed in a dorm, which did not include breakfast and I even had to buy a locker for my little wardrobe... 5 more euros! Overpriced.

Dear guest, Thank you for leaving your comment with us. The prices of the stay are directly connected with the availability. Especially in Summer season, when Amsterdam is quite full with travelers, we always advise our guests to make the booking as soon as possible :) And we have lockers available at reception free of charge for your valuables of course. We really hope that you enjoyed your stay with us and the beauty of our city. Greetings from sunny Amsterdam!

Excellent facilities but 20 minutes by bus from Amsterdam Centraal station.

Dear guest, Thank you for your lovely review scores! Did you try out our trains as well? This ride only takes you 5 minutes to Central Station from our hotel. We hope to see you here again soon! Wam regards, Meininger Amsterdam

とてもきれいなビジネスホテルで一部をホステルとして開放しているようです。 場所は中央駅から10分ほどですが一日フリーパス外の電車で(往復4ユーロほど)徒歩では50分ほどかかるとのこと。ドラッグ不可の安全できれいなホステルを希望ならおすすめです。 キッチンもありますが二口しかないのでなかなか使えなさそうでした。 Everywhere is clean and safety. but every time staffs were looking busy and they made the customer waited. This is not hostel it's hotel. It's little hard to make friends.

So this one was basically a hotel that had some big rooms turned into dorms of 4-6 people. It was alright but felt more weird than normal (in a hostel) to sleep in the same room with four guys that obviously knew each other. :D The breakfast was very good for a hostel breakfast but not that much for one at a hotel. The staff was mostly very friendly but some elderly workers showed quite openly how they don't like their job. The hotel was clean and nice but quite far from everything.

A comfortable stay and perfect location for awakenings festival. Wasn't happy about the additional tourist charge which I wasn't informed about. I had to change rooms every night that I stayed there

Dear guest, Thank you very much for leaving your comment here! The additional Amsterdam Tourist Tax is charged in every accomodation in our city and is mentioned on the Meininger page of Hostelworld. We apologize for the changing of rooms, this must have been an inconvenience for you and we hope we can make it up to you some other time in the future! Warm regards, Meininger Amsterdam

Nice stay! We were disappointed that we did not get the room we booked. We had booked a room for 5 people, but was divided into two rooms. Apart from that we were happy with our stay.

Dear guest, Thank you for leaving your comments here! We apologize for the inconvenience, at times high season forces us to become a bit more flexible with our room allocation. We hope everything else was ok and hopefully see you again in the future! Kind regards, Meininger Amsterdam

It's only one train stop away from the Amsterdam Central, which is not bad at all.. but 2.60 is a little expensive for the short train stop. Other than location, the price to stay there is a little steep compared to other hostels that you can get right in DT Amsterdam. But It was SUPER CLEAN and really comfortable.

It's a good place to stay but for myself it was to crowded, especially in the cafeteria. The building feels like it used to be a hotel then was converted to a hostel, the rooms and hallways are nice though. Also, I felt like the breakfast was a bit expensive.

The hostel is more like a hotel. It is located away from the city center so you need to take a bus or the train into Amsterdam. Only takes 5 minutes by train so it's worth it for the reduction in price. The facilities are nice and updated. However during my stay the wifi was shutting off and back on.

Great location next to Sloterdijk station. Easy access by train to Amsterdam Centraal station (5 min) and Schiphol Airport (10 min). Friendly staffs, but reception tends to be busy. Room is clean and comfortable, but my roommates used up all the toilet paper in the washroom (luckily I brought some toilet paper from a previous hostel).

Dear guest, Thank you very much for writing down your feedback here! We are happy to read that you have enjoyed your stay here.

Was a very nice place to stay. Only one stop on the train to central station. Very much a hotel not a hostel. Only big drawback was WiFi. Didn't not work anywhere in the hotel (When I asked staff they said it was an ongoing problem) Their computers were just as bad. Had to go to the trainstation to get WiFi.

Meininger hoteles are fabulous except the WiFi in the rooms, if you want to navigate you can do it in all halls every floor or do it at the first floor reception
