Property Description

Just a few years ago the sleeping cars of the Train Lodge where the luxury cars of the night train Zurich - Rome. Night trains are diminishing but our sleeping cars are very comfortable even more if these are not running. That is why we started a project for a hotel on a track in Amsterdam, one of most interesting and nicest cities. If you are looking to stay at a very nice spot in a comfortable accommodation at a affordable price, you should come to our Train Lodge. Meet other nice people, different languages, cultures and colours. Please stay with us, our Train Lodge with a retro atmosphere is a lovely place to stay where you sleep in the compartments of 4 comfortable former Swiss international sleeping train cars. Together with a bistro train car and our sunny terrace you will like your stay.
Our Train Lodge has a bar-bistro train car where you also check in. Our terrace is a nice place where you can meet you fellow travellers, have your drink, your breakfast or just stay around and meet new friends.

You will find the Train Lodge next to the Amsterdam Sloterdijk Station where you find all connections by bus, tram, metro and train to all other hot spots in Amsterdam. But you can easily reach the important places, dance locations, festival, and so one. We have direct connection by train to the main airport of the Netherlands which is Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.

Unique hostel in a train so don't expect the standard hotelroom. You will get the real train experience!

    The train lodge was one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at throughout my European trip. Please don’t miss this one, staff are friendly, great people to meet and the trains have that vintage feeling. I slept great, it wasn’t cold and beds are comfortable. Thanks again train lodge ! :)

    What an amazing find! The cabins are so cute. The beds are really comfortable and had hotel quality sheets.... it's the little things you notice when you've been travelling a while!! The hostel is out of the main centre, but really accessible by tram or train. A 24 hour unlimited transport ticket costs 8 euros so you can come and go as you please. Being a bit out of town this hostel gives you some peace and quiet. It's not a crazy party hostel, but is friendly and fun.

    Great hostel. I definitely recommend staying here. The staff are super nice and helpful and they even have me a room to myself for for no extra cost instead of making me move when my roommates left. The rooms are on the small side but every bed has a couple large shelves so it doesn't matter. The only real issue us that it takes 25 minutes to get into town. Most importantly, the vibes here are great and the main area is a nice hangout in the evenings. I would definitely go back.

    Cool place to stay for a night, I would think that the novelty would wear off on the second. This place is great if you can get 5 to 6 people together to share a compartment. The Lodge is also really close to Amsterdam central station. Down side is the single shower per train car.

    Don’t get me wrong- this place was very nice, clean, and very comfortable. There were three problems I had: 1) the front desk attendant had to lock and unlock your door for you EVERY-TIME. That also means trusting that others in your room will remember to have the doors locked when they leave. 2) there is virtually nothing near by, aside from the Amsterdam Sloterdjik station. 3) there were no community activities within the hostel, which is honestly my biggest complaint.

    Not a bad hostel. However, once the novelty of staying in a train wears off (usually after a couple hours) you realize you are paying a significant amount of money for a very small space. beds are stacked three high (luckily I got there early and got a bottom bunk). Not the most comfortable beds but also not the least. I wouldn't go out of my way to stay here again however It is still a well run, clean, comfortable albeit small space. Also there's nowhere to lock your valuables.

    + location (close to train station/ flexibus station if you arrive by train or bus) - super tiny space in the room (perhaps because of the train design) you can’t even dress or pack in room and have to do it out of the room

    I must say I was a bit taken back at first at how small the rooms were for sleeping. Having 3 of us in the tiny space was quite the challenge. But we managed It is good for a short stay. I think a long stay would get a bit challenging especially if the weather isn’t great. The bathroom last were good and everything was clean . I didn’t like that we didn’t have our own key. You have to ask staff to lock and unlock your room each time. I wasn’t comfortable with this. Location very close to tr
