Via Amsterdam is here to connect you to the local scene. May it be in the city or in one of our fly and fresh designed communal spaces. Our aim is to help you to travel differently and discover the city in creative new ways. Who is ‘you’? ‘You’ can be a group or an individual. ‘You’ can be corporate or leisure. One thing is sure. ‘You’ is welcome. Just come as you are.

Bright and arty with an urban twist, at Via Amsterdam we're the perfect base for curious travellers exploring and socialising. The communal area has hammocks swinging from the ceiling and comfy leather sofas where you can make the most of the free Wi-Fi. Or relax in a bean bag in the cinema room for a film with your new squad – take a craft beer from the bar to drink along with the movie.


Via Amsterdam is in the middle of a student campus – it's one of the reasons we always have a buzzing vibe – with a supermarket, gym and a pizzeria nearby. To reach us, take Metro line 53 from Amsterdam Centraal train station for 13 minutes to Venserpolder or hop on a train from Schiphol Airport to Diemen-Zuid station – then you're a 10-minute walk away. The same line will also take you to must-see attractions like the Heineken Experience, which is a 15-minute walk from the station. After a night out in the city centre, the 287 or 285 bus will bring you back to us in under 40 minutes.

Rooms and Dorms

Our minimalist mixed dorms – there's a female-only dorm too – have bunks and en-suites with hot showers. We also have private doubles if you're after more personal space. The custom-made bunks have headboards for privacy, a light, plug socket and USB port. You'll feel like you're at home on your comfy mattress and fresh linen, plus, you'll have a personal locker to keep all your stuff securely stowed away.

Extras and activities

Feeling peckish? The Dude restaurant serves burgers, hot dogs and nachos until late, or you can rustle up something yourself in our kitchen. We've also got vending machines for a quick midnight snack. To discover Amsterdam do as the locals do and cycle – hire a bike from us and take the 20-minute ride to the heart of the city. Pick up a free map at reception, pop via the ATM and you'll be off.

    It’s an amazing place to stay. I would completely recomend it. The only thing about this, its supposed to be a hostel but there is NO PLACE TO COOL like normally in a hostel you can. Also, the frigorífico for food is so small, so you can barely keep for from the market.

    The rooms were clean and spacious. It's a bit further away from Amsterdam central which is unfortunate. You need to buy the public transportation pass otherwise you'll be spending a lot on the transport. It takes around 30 min to get to the city center. The hostel itself is in a very calm surrounding and there are restaurants and super markets nearby.

    Lockers need their own padlocks but you can buy them from reception for €5. Kitchen area has a sink, kettle and microwave so cooking for yourself isn't really an option. We stayed in a mixed 4 bed and the shower/toilet situation was great. Though the door had a massive gap underneath so you could hear pretty much everything. Linens are provided, towels were not. Really close to the station and a supermarket.

    Depends what ur looking for when u book a hostel vs. other sleeping options. This is not your small diy option. This is what I wud imagine a collaboration between an Amsterdam coffee shop and mc Donald's wud look like. Basically, corporates attempt at getting involved in the cheaper cooler end of tourism. You can never escape the big dog.

    "Hostel" was fine but really it is a budget hotel. Lots of families, felt like it was a large school trip kind of place. Made for an odd vibe in the bar. Sheets weren't clean but nothing drastically wrong, I'd see what else you can find.
