The hotel was nice, is not on Ciy center, but has a station nealy! The Staffs were helpfull. The Breakfast was delicious, worth it! The Bedroom, was quite good. The problems: Far way from city center In all hostels where I've been, this was the worse for the Internet... but the Best for the Breakfast! =D

Although I stayed here only briefly, I had a pleasant stay. The Meininger is a massive place offering spotless and spacious rooms with ensuite bathroom and top-notch facilities. Although its location next to the Amsterdam-Sloterdijk railway station and amidst office buildings is very convenient, there is nothing of interest in its vicinity. I found its staff to be very attentive and helpful. Having been to other Meininger Hostels before, this one offers clearly a livelier common area.

The hostel is pretty good. Our room was really good and also the bar and the common area. However the kitchen was small and not equiped enough for the amount of guest . Internet service was not great either. In despite if that, the atmosphere was really good, young people and families can enjoy together.

Paid for a room in an 8-bed dorm. Was given a single-bed room with private bathroom and shower for no additional cost, plus an unadvertised 10% discount. Score! Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. SECURITY: Keycard entry to room. Never felt unsafe in the building. LOCATION: Directly next to Sloterdijk Station (easy access to Centraal). STAFF: Extremely friendly! ATMOSPHERE: Bustling. Great vibe. CLEANLINESS: Spotless. VALUE: Couldn't be higher. FACILITIES: Plenty to do on-site.

Very good option, but the hostel is too far from the city centre and the guests have to buy transport tickets.

The Wifi is not stable. Most of the time I am not able to surf the internet, even though my phone and computer showed that it has already connected to the Wifi.

We arrived very early in the morning on a bus from Germany and were soooo sleepy. We had booked a dorm, but the lady at the front desk gave us a private room because our room wasn't ready. She could see how sleepy we were. Thank you!! I don't know how the dorms were, but the private rooms are basically hotels. Very clean and new. WIFI worked great. The only downside to this place was the location. Its not in the city, it's on the edge of the city so you have to take the train into town.

The rooms are very comfortable, clean and well furnished. The breakfast for only 5,90 is very good too. The only problem is that the hotel is not very near the center of Amsterdam, but it's right next to a train station that can get you there in less than 10 minutes. You can also take the tran to the center, that is near the train station.

This place was fantastic, it was closer to a nice hotel then a hostel. Bit far out but definately worth it.

Although it's not located in the hub of Amsterdam it's right next to the station which offers trains,trams and busses to anywhere you would like to go. The rooms are clean and comfortable, staff friendly and over all good value for money

Brilliant hostel, would highly recommend. Very friendly and approachable staff who were willing to help with any request. Clean - new towels each day, bedding changed every other day. We stayed in a 5 bed private room which was excellent. The hostel is 5 minutes by train from Centraal and very accessible. Couldn't fault it.

It was really nice stay at Meininger. It's not located in city center but tram, train and bus connections were really good. Breakfast was only 5,90 euros and there were lots of different foods.

A very clean and well facilitated hostel, with an impressive breakfast buffet and very welcoming staff. Even though a bit further from the center, the location turned out quite convenient since it is so close to bus, tram and train!

It was a great place to stay, very clean, organised and safe. The location was not the best, but you could easily find your way to the city centre on a 20-minutes journey by bus. If you have a night out it might be a bit bummer to have a long journey back to the hostel.

It's like a hotel room that just happens to have seven beds in it. I loved how it not only provided a kitchen but also some free food and free shampoo in the shower. The only problem was that the place was located outside of the city, but it's right next to a transport hub so there are trains, buses and trams nearby and the train to Centraal Station only takes five minutes. Highly reccomended.
