    The hostel is about 10-15 minutes drive outside Amsterdam and gives the perfect insight into the dutch countryside. The hostel(specially bathrooms) was clean and the private cabin was fairly spacious for 3 people. The hostel is along a lake and the entire place is beautiful! Would highly highly recommend. Complete value for money.

    Amazing place to stay. About 30 mins away from the center which wasn’t an issue at all because the journey is easy with the shuttle bus lucky lake provide, and it was nice to stay somewhere quiet out of the center. The lucky lake is so cute, lovely helpful staff and the rooms are adorable along with the lovely set up of a cinema room, breakfast bus and kitchen. Can’t recommend this place enough and will definitely be coming back!

    This hotel is really good. It is a bit far from Amsterdam, as the staff points out, but that didnt really bother me, since the shuttle service works perfectly and the metro ride to the central station takes 20 minutes. The breakfast is good, especially for a free one, and the staff is amazing. The hostel is filled with small details that made me fall in love with it. The only thing I didnt like was that many guests didnt respect the "no noise at night" rule. But overall it was perfect!

    Its a pretty cool hostel. - its a 10min shuttle to the metro station then about a 30 min metro ride to downtown. The shuttle runs every hour from 8am to 1am. You need to take a 15euro uber to the metro if its not in that time period - the hostel is fairly clean - breakfast is really good...eggs, toast, yogurt, cereal, juice and more - there are heaters in the trailers (rooms) - staff are friendly

    A really beautiful hostel with such cute caravanes! The staff was friendly too and the shower and toilets were fine as well. The only thing was that it got pretty cold in the caravane during the night, but that‘s not the hostel‘s fault. :) Would definitely recommend!

    Awesome type of hostel, the caravans are great and the whole place looks gorgeous. About half an hour out of the city but not difficult to get to at all, just takes a little planning. Would recommend if you’re looking to stay somewhere a bit different and don’t mind being out of the city!

    This was a fun hostel with a really cool set up and awesome staff. The main downside is the location which could be seen as an upside depending on what you’re going for. It’s quite far from the city, and while the hostel offers a shuttle to the metro station, it’s still an extra thing to plan into your day. It’s in a super peaceful area, though. I stayed in sept. when it was getting colder and not maybe people were hangout out outside so I’m sure it’s really fun in the warm months!
