Strategic, comfort, and clean. I like everything!
There was a discrepancy between what Hostel world booking page showed as due to the hostel and what they actually charged me. They charged me 10 Euros more, saying they were city taxes. Hey, but I traveled to so many hostels and this never happened anywhere else. I think Meininger should be clear on what they charge and show that on Hostel World. Luckily, I had booked 7-bed dorm and they gave me 4-bed dorm instead. Perhaps that was the reason for 10 Euros extra :)
A little different from most hostels, Meininger also offers full hotel facilities. The Amsterdam facility is away from Centraal Station but can be reached by tram, bus and night bus. The night bus is worse case and takes 30 minutes. The tram is quick. Excellent facility. Everything was new. Very hot showers. The dryer in the laundry was not working. Highly recommend. The room was quiet and did not hear anyone from another room.
This place was AWESOME!!! Yes, it is a little outside of the city center, but it is only a 2 minute train ride. There is Air Conditioning! TV's! Huge showers! the bar downstairs never closes. Super friendly staff. Excellent place to rest and relax after a busy day in Amsterdam. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
Loved this place. Good bar. Good people. Great rooms. I'm 6'4 and the beds were a great fit. Nice and clean. Highly recommend. A little bit out from the city but only 1 stop on the train (€2) or a 20 min drive (€15 to €20 in a cab)
Our shower was completely clogged and no one came to clean it or fix it while we were there. Other than that the breakfast buffet is pretty good (is not free). It was nice having our own bathroom and shower in our mixed dorm and not having to share like in other hostels.
The best hostel where I've been in my trip around Europe. Perfect!
Very well-run hostel. I loved that you can rent bikes. It's a bit far from city centre but it's a short train ride or 15 minute bike ride away. I just wish their weekend rates weren't so expensive. They raise the prices quite high compared to the week.
Super clean hostel but the kitchen is ridiculously small for the size of the hostel. Made for some frustrating evenings.
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!
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.
Excellent facilities but 20 minutes by bus from Amsterdam Centraal station.
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.
Beautiful hostel one train stop away from Amsterdam center. Very easy to get to train and back.

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
