Hotel room was clean upon arrival but housekeeping service was poor. Internet connection was bad but adequate. Breakfast was good and staff was nice and helpful. Unfortunately, it is not possible to open the window in the rooms which was necessary sometimes. All in all a solid hotel with a good location, directly next to the railway station and good connection to public transport.

I had wonderful time there, very nice staff, quiet, resonable price, clean room but I couldn't cook any food after I saw a mice at the kitchen so do not eat the food they provide in the kitchen (Pasta, Bread etc...).

A little bit off located, but it is one of the most professionally well-managed big-scale hostel I have been to. The cleanliness and the rooms comforts are on par with a well run 3 or 4 star hotel. But internet service breaks down time and again.

The hostel was very clean and a very positive environment. There was a plug and personal light at each bed. Its a 8 min train ride to the Central station and everything is within walking distance from there.

It was my second Meininger experiment, first was in Wien. Both were pretty good. Meininger generally has a good company policy and service. However, we had small problems. For instance, though the location of the hotel seems to be close to city center, it is not quite easy to reach center. Actually it is, but it costs more than normal. Because if u use train it is just one station to the center, but u can't use daily transportation tickets in trains. Otherwise it was great

A little bit far from city center but the value for money is quite high. I stayed there for 6 nights and the staff updated the room for me because of the availability reason. Not the typical hostel but should be a 3-star hotel, so all of the rooms equipped well and very clean.

Everything was wonderful, the only problem i had was there were no available adapters so i can charge my phone. So i think the staff/ management should look into providing more adapters, because customers would need their phone charge to take pics in such a amazing country like Amsterdam.

More of a hotel than hostel however the stay was fantastic and staff very helpful. Very clean, modern and urban. You will see that some of the reviews rate the location as poor to good. If you want to be in the main central district of Amsterdam then this is not the place for you. For us the location was great. Very close to the airport by train and a quick and easy trip in the city by bus or tram. Overall the transportation daily passes were very affordable. One con: Wifi sucked in our room.

Nice location, very quiet. Far from the city centre but its just a 5 minute train away. Train travel very frequently to sloterdijk so its not a problem

Close to the airport and great staff. Clean and very decent rooms. I would take a train from the airport instead of a taxi, as the fares were very expensive considering it is less than 15minutes to get there. The train/tram station is so close to the hostel so it makes sense. I took a taxi as I arrived at 10:30 pm after a long flight and wanted the quickest way to get to bed.

Amsterdam is so expensive on weekends, so I felt this hostel was a bit overpriced and they should at least offer breakfast for the pricing, but was clean and very close to public transport. Can't complain for the cleanliness or the facilities, all very excellent but being a big place it felt a bit institutional, more like a hotel than a hostel. The 7 bed dorm had a strange bed arrangement, 2 bunks, 1 single, and two singles which are placed next to each other like a double. In a mixed dorm!

Great place! Although it's not at the center of the town, it's next to the train station, Amsterdam Sloterdijk, which is 5 mins away from Amsterdam Centraal!

The hotel is modern and clean, the breakfast is great. Only annoying thing is that you have to get on public transport to get into the city which is ridiculously overpriced
