Thank you John!

An 8 Minute train ride to Centraal station. Very nice rooms and bathrooms. I would recommend my friends staying here. A little more hotel feel than an interactive hostel feel, but nonetheless I would say stay here!

This hostel is everything it says on the tin and it's pretty good. The one thing I was disappointed with was how they make out the location is 'very central' it's not. You come out of Centraal to discover it's the next station along the line,two taxis I asked didn't recognise the address they have on their website. It's relatively close but not on the doorstep like they made out. The cover on the bed was very small I remember too. Other than that it was ok.

Hi R, Thank you for your comment and stay with us! It is true that our hotel is located a little outside of Amsterdam, but luckily all transportation is really convenient. We regret to hear that for that matter, it wasn't what you expected it to be. We wish you a lovely day and would be happy to welcome you here again some other time! Kind regards from Meininger Amsterdam

I really have no complaints. The staff were very friendly and always willing to help with a smile. The breakfast was good considering the price. The bathrooms and rooms were kept incredibly clean and the building is located 3min from the train station to take you anywhere you need to go. I will definitely stay there again the next time I stay in Amsterdam. Many thanks to the awesome staff!!

Hi M, What a nice comment, thank you for that! See you again in the future then:)

If you're looking for a comfortable place to sleep and don't mind a bit of a jaunt into the city center, this is a great place. It's not much of a "hostel," at least in the social sense. It's not convenient for the city center nightlife. BUT it is very clean and very comfortable with a nice bar area downstairs.

Had a great experience at this hostel! Location was ok, but located next to the train station, so easy to get around. Staff were very friendly and rooms were immaculately clean! As a single traveler, I particularly liked this location because it was easy to meet people. Would definitely stay here again!

Very modern. Doesn't feel like the usual correctional facility I've come across in the past.

Very nice and clean Hostel. More like a hotel in some sense. While the place is very clean, good breakfast and friendly staff, its downside is location. if you are going to Amsterdam to party its a good 20 minutes away from all the action. the good thing is the metro is steps away from the hostel. It does have a bar, but all the average age was around 17 years old at least while i was there. I think mostly because its safe area.

Dear T, Thank you for your lovely comment and stay in our hotel! Our hotel is located just 5 minutes from Central Station by train so we are not really sure which method of public transport you took that lasted 20 minutes. September is always our 'school - season' so we did have a lot of school groups with young people in our hotel. We would love to welcome you again in summer for example when we have more backpackers! Have a lovely day. Warm regards from Amsterdam

I had very noisy and inconsiderate roommates who were very noisy and came back to the rooms very late and disturbed everyone by turning on lights, even using the shower at strange times and the hair dryer too! I found the hostel very enjoyable other than this, the location was good, very close to the station and everything was easily accessible. the rooms were clean and efficient and I loved having a shower in the room to use

Hi R, Thanks so much for your comment, we are happy that you have enjoyed your stay with us apart from your roommates. In case you would like to come to Amsterdam again in the future: we also offer private rooms (from 1 - 7 beds) so you might consider this for an other time. This will eliminate the 'roommate-problem' :) Have a wonderful day! Kind regards from Meininger Amsterdam

The place is fantastic, very clean and tidy. Good beds and good covers. The bathrooms are new and great. All was good but there are a few improvements to be done: -soap wasn't replenished when it was finished. -our used towels were put into the shower in order to get fresh new ones from the cleaners, but the day after we didn't have any new ones, we had to dry with one towel only. Conclusion: Very good value for the money, I recommend it. Few cons but they are just small details.

Hi O, Thank you for your nice review! We are always happy to hear about any 'cons' or improvements so we can work on it. In the future, please don't hesitate to come to reception when there is lack of towels or soap; we can of course provide you with new stuff. We hope to welcome you again at Meininger some other time. Have a wonderful day! Kind regards from Amsterdam

Really nice place to stay. Only thing is the cleaning staff sometimes walk in unannounced which is a bit annoying. Apart from that I would really recommend staying here! Very clean and with excellent bus/train links to central Amsterdam all through the day and night.

Hostel is quite far from the city centre but it is next to the train and bus station. So we wont find that difficult to reach the hostel even at late night. Awesome stay we enjoyed it.

Really good dorms, the hostel is really new and clean. The showers where really nice. The kitchen has everything but was always really dirty but that was because of the people staying there. Has a big common area which in nice. It is right next to the sloterdik station and takes about 3 minutes on the train to get to central.

Hi A, Thank you for reviewing our hostel! We are happy to hear that you have enjoyed staying with us and will try to keep up to date with the cleaning of our kitchen, if only all of our guests did that as well...:) Hope to see you again at Meininger! Warm regards from Amsterdam

Althought very easy to get to (Sloterdijk is a major train-bus hub) the hostel is quite far away .. so if you are happy to pay 7 euro for a 24 hr transit pass then its great! The 24hr bar is awesome and the rooms are more like hotel rooms than a hostel. Wifi doesnt work in all the rooms, but its not a big deal really. I will stay here again when I am back in Amsterdam next month.

Hi Lisa, That is a really nice comment, thank you for that! We are looking forward to seeing you again this month:) Kind regards, Meininger Amsterdam

Really close to the Sloterdijk train station and 5 minutes from amsterdam central what means you have to buy a return ticket everyday (4,20€)..otherwise, the hostel is clean, modern, staff is nice and the breakfeast really complet...

Owner Comment (Hide)
Dear Sara, We really appreciate your nice comment! We hope the 4,20 EUR was worth staying here and perhaps will see you another time! Kind regards, Meininger Amsterdam

An immaculate, though run of the mill hostel that lacks a real sense of atmosphere, however is clean and comfortable.
