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).

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

Right next to the train station and about 15 minutes from the city center. It is more like a hotel with the hostel atmosphere. Great place to stay, we will definitely back.

Not the best location, but staff was extremely helpful. Was much cheaper than any other accommodation for the night we stayed there.

Really great facility. Very clean. 2 Warnings: If you are planning to do laundry here, I would recommend early in the morning. there is one washer for the entire building, and it is about 1.5 hr per load. This is also NOT in the city center. Its right outside the west station, which is great, and its only a 4 minute train ride to the central station.

This place is not a hostel, It is a hotel with dorm style rooms. the service is great and friendly. The hostel however is not great if your looking to go into the city daily unless you have a train pass. with that it is simple to jump on and ride 7 minutes to Amsterdam central where all the fun is. However the services and facilities at this hostel cannot be matched

The room was clean and with new furniture. There is parking lot just beside the Hostel, so if you planning go by car don't worry about it. Although the hostel is relatively far from Amsterdam center, there is also a train station that can bring you to Amsterdam central station in few minutes.

From viewing it on hostel world it looked great, true to form. The staff from check in to check out were very friendly and helpful with sight seeing and transport tickets. The rooms were great very spacious and clean. I really like the set up, lockers, personal light & power point etc. I seen a few comments on how the hostel is too far out of the city centre, its was never a hassle, only 5 min by train and there a plenty of trains. All together I enjoyed my stay at the Meininger, would recommend
