Hostelworld says

Meininger is all about convenience. It's situated only two minutes from the Sloterdijk Railway Station and only 15 from the airport. Its rooms are comfy, clean and affordable; all you'd need for a stay in Amsterdam. Obviously, it's Europe's premier party town and the Meininger bar is the perfect place to warm up before a night out. Grab an ice cold local beer from Amsterdam or deuce is out with fellow internationals on the football table.

Property Description

The hostel is situated directly (almost next door) at the Sloterdijk transport hub and is just 5 minutes from the main railway station with the urban railway. The perfect starting point to explore every corner of Amsterdam!

We are located right at the second most important urban transport hub in Amsterdam: Sloterdijk station. At Sloterdijk Station ALL public transport is covered (trains, trams, busses, metros) to get you wherever you need to be in Amsterdam. From here it is just a 5-minute ride with the urban railway to Centraal Station at the heart of the Old Town and fifteen minutes to Schiphol Airport. The Westerpark is within easy walking distance.

We have a breath of Amsterdam flair in store for you here, with Old Master-style art in the lobby and giant clogs before the door. In addition to interesting conversation, our bar also offers cool local beers and other local specialities. Snacks are also available here, should you feel peckish.

Sometimes you're simply spoilt for choice. If you cannot decide which of the numerous Amsterdam restaurants to choose, you can rustle up something tasty for you and your friends in the guest kitchen. By the way: this also has a washing machine and dryer.

In our games room pool and table football await, either for internationals against other guests or a game amongst friends. The cosy alternative: you put your feet up in our comfortable lobby and chat with friends from home. Free Wi-Fi is provided in all public areas and rooms.

Beds are located in either single, double, multi-bed rooms or the dormitory. Bed linen is included. All rooms have an own bathroom with shower and toilet, as well as a television.

Our young, multilingual team is on hand for you 24 hours a day. We look forward to seeing you!

Overview

At Meininger Amsterdam City West we have all the town's best bits on our doorstep. Our hostel is just moments from the party centre of Amsterdam, with plenty of pubs and clubs to choose from. Try a few cocktails from the on-site bar or pick up some Dutch waffles and head to our common room to put your feet up. Chat to our multi-lingual staff at the travel desk if you're after some local info on the best places to visit. Our interior design's pretty cool too – spot the Old Master-style artwork in our lobby and some massive clogs at the door!

Location

Getting to our hostel is easy as we're located right opposite Sloterdijk Station. A 15-minute train ride from Airport Schiphol lands you directly at the station. Want to discover the popular sites in the old town? The tram will take you to Centraal Station in 15 minutes or less (only 6km from us). If you're heading to a festival at Westerpark, we're just 3km away, making us the perfect place to crash.

Rooms and Dorms

Our key card-accessible en-suite rooms will make you feel right at home, with single, double and multi-bed dorms to choose from. Bed linen is included so you can crash at the end of the night without having to roll out the sleeping bag! TVs are also provided in each room, so you can chill, grab some popcorn and settle into a classic movie.

Extras and activities

If you fancy a quiet night in, cook some snacks for your friends in our guest kitchen or play a few rounds of foosball or pool in the games area. Been travelling elsewhere? Our washing machine and dryer make laundry easy. Thanks to free Wi-Fi, you can catch up with friends and family anytime of the day without draining your data. On a road trip? We'll save you a parking spot right outside!

    Fabulous place to stay! We loved our 3 person private room with en-suite. Location was convenient to train, tram and buses. (Less than 5 min walk) We were able to store our luggage for 8 euros ( we chose 23 hours just in case we wandered around late into the evening). Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The bathroom was fabulous!! We would definitely choose to stay here again and highly recommend this hostel!!!!

    Nice place to stay. Is close to the city if you are going by bus/train/any transport. By foot pretty far. Comfy beds. Little kitchen for such huge amount of travelers, but it’s ok

    More of a hotel than a hostel but the facilities and rooms are very nice for the price. Not in the heart of the action but near accessible public transport which makes it easy to get there.

    Great place to stay. Right next door to the train station, lots of places to chill drink and eat within the hotel. The beds were clean and comfy, the showers were great. It was a great place to stay for a few nights in Amsterdam. Restuaraunt and a spar next door too and just across the road has a cool little bar. Would highly recommend

    Really clean bathrooms and sheets and everything. Felt very hotel-ish which I quite liked for my first time travelling alone. The only thing was that there isn’t really that much of an atmosphere to meet new people.

    For a backpacker this place is depressing. Everywhere you look tours are being advertised, families of 9 are inundating the reception desk, and a bunch of milquetoast employees in matching uniforms just stand around, most likely contemplating the bleakness of their surroundings and wondering why they left their home country to come and work here. Some employees show emotion, however, as I saw one extremely angry and flailing his arms over some intra-employee dispute. I hope he leaves soon.

    The only good part about the hostel is the location, the beds are really messy and uncomfortable rooms are not clean at all. I booked for a 2 person ( Twin Private ) and the room I get is no where close to pictures.
