If you are looking for a trip to Amsterdam with a kitsch twist and a yellow bus to eat breakfast in every day, Lucky Lake Hostel is for you. Step out of the city and into the lush Dutch countryside á la Wizard of Oz. You’ll be greeted by a bunch of charming, multi-lingual staff, an outdoor kitchen and rows of multi-coloured cabins, caravans and dorms. Home sweet home 🙂
City explorers need not despair, the hostel provides a free to-and-from shuttle service to Holendrecht Metro station and from there it’s only a €2.90 train journey in to Amsterdam city centre. The sweetest part is that you get to return to your own humble abode with a spacious garden, and a glorious lake to dip your feet in with a cold beer. All about that country lyfe!
We know what you’re thinking…WTF (where’s the food)?! Well, there is a shop on site for daily essentials and evenings are all about rustling up your own chargrilled feast on one of the hostel’s BBQs with a sprinkling of fresh herbs from the “pit”. To top it all off, there is free coffee & tea on tap all day errry day AND a free breakfast which includes eggs, pancakes or poffertjes! Curiouser and curiouser…
‘Aint no room for boredom here with activities ranging from kayaking, bike rides to the local farmers market to after-hours skinny dipping in the lake. For those who are fond of the herb there’s a special smoking room, and who wouldn’t want to chill in “the smallest cinema caravan in the world”?!
If the flamingos, pink hippo sculptures and real-life quacking ducks aren’t enough to persuade you, we don’t know what will. Oh wait, our customers might have a thing or two to add…
“It was SO nice to stay here, away from the city, but still plenty easy to get into the city – the best of both worlds. I would stay here again without a doubt.”
“Such an awesome hostel! Cute, funky rooms, which are super clean. Comfy beds, clean bathrooms. Such an awesome chilled atmosphere here, and the staff are amazing, they even redirected some mail for us! There’s a free shuttle to the station too! Do yourself a favour and stay here if your coming to Amsterdam.”
“This place is absolutely amazing. Beautiful location, met some fantastic people, awesome outdoor kitchen. It’s everything you could ever want. So sad we only stayed for two nights. Stay at Lucky Lake!”
“A beautiful and unique hostel. It was so nice to have a base outside of the busy Amsterdam! The caravans and cabins were lovely and the whole place was quirky and memorable. I would highly recommend and stay again!”
