There are some staff who are really annoying and just joking each other when you need and wait for some help. but that is the only thing that is bad about this hostel, every other thing is perfect and make you want to you stay one more night.
Would definitely recommend. Facilities were excellent, beds comfortable, staff friendly. It was a bit far out from the centre of Amsterdam but it is right next to the train station so it was easy to get anywhere. Glad I chose here!

First hostel I have ever stayed at and was happy with the experience! Chilled atmosphere since it is a train away from the city centre, and also have many different people of all ages staying. Super clean and felt my belongings were super safe in the lockers they provide. Can be tricky to find as me and my friend got helped by a nearby traveller who also said she had the same problem finding it!
Stayed there because I had a flight out of Schipol in the morning, wouldn't stay there otherwise because it's too far out of the city, but quite close to the airport. Did the job for me. There were a lot of kids there too which was a bit awkward for a hostel vibe.
Although located just outside main Amsterdam, it's right next to the second main railway station and is actually in a pretty good location. Just the cost of getting there and back can add up. The facilities were great and the WI-FI was on point, the staff were friendly and the buffet breakfast you could pay for in the morning was great also. A little pricey but it's there for you nevertheless.
A big hotel-like hostel with many people. The staff were helpful. A good place for a short time, but expensive.
was bit hard to find when i arrive late in the evening need a big sign near train station
very much like an hotel! really clean and nice. not many beds in eachr room. located in the centraal station so you have to take the train to the city each day... no much to do around just the common room which is nice and a nice bar around.. the rest is traon away
Overall, based purely on facilities, this was the nicest hostel I stayed at in Europe. I was close to staying at a different hostel instead because I was turned off by this one's location. That would have been a massive mistake. It's a 5 minute train ride from Amsterdam Central, and trains run every 5-10 minutes. The hostel itself felt more like a hotel. Big spacious rooms, excellent bathroom. Don't be afraid of the location, this is unbelievable value for money.
The Hostel Meininger is more of a hotel/hostel. It's a lovely big hostel that good for all people. We stayed in a 7 bed mixed dorm - the room was really spacious and clean with a lovely shower and toilet. There are free lockers for keeping valuables safe. The hostel has it's own kitchen and washing facilities you can use and the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. It isn't in the centre but it is very easy to get there by a 5 minute train journey. Would definitely stay again!
Has lived up to the reviews, really great place to stay!
Wasn't sure about this hostel after reading a few bad reviews but we were really surprised at just how nice it was, great staff, nice bar/ dinning and out door area. The room itself was
