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.

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.

    It was a very nice experience to stay in a train lodge. Only thing that would be nice if there were windows for ventilation.

    Super fun stay ! I’ve never been on a sleeper train and it was a cool experience, made me want to go on a moving sleeper train. I chose the hostel for the location and it didn’t disappoint, it’s literally right outside the station. I stayed for a festival that had shuttles from the station so it was nice to meet a bunch of people to go with. Since the common area is small, it’s easy to make friends. Friendly staff, great chill area out front, cheap beer, couldn’t have asked for a better stay!

    This place was great! A very unique set up. One thing to note is that this is a renovated train,so storage space is very sparse. Pack light!

    Very cool hostel Easy to get to from Sloterdijk Station but a bit of a long walk from Amsterdam Centraal. Staff were nice, Hannah in particular was good to chat with and nothing was too much trouble. It is an old train so narrow corridor and not much room in the cabin but it is part of the charm, I recommend top bunk for extra leg and storage room plus less impact from people moving around. However, only power sockets are at ground level.

    It’s a lovely little hostel that definitely lives up to its photos. It’s right by a major train station so it’s easy to get around, but for people who don’t want to spend all that money on transport and would rather walk it’s quite a trek into the town. It would be great if there was a kitchen that’s the only downside of the hostel itself really. Other than that it’s a cute little place, you can hire bikes from there so that’s another option for getting around
