Liked: Great environment for an extended stay in Amsterdam (at least 3 nights)! The staff were friendly and very helpful as well. Internet connection was good, kitchen was sufficient, and the breakfast was decent for what you pay. Highly recommended for those looking for a chilled-out place to stay in Amsterdam.

Disliked: Location...far from the center but the hostel provides a shuttle every hour (every half hour when busy) to a train/metro station. Takes about an hour to get to the city, though. Other than that, loved this hostel and would stay here again!

21 August 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Really relaxed atmosphere a little bit away from the noisy heart of Amsterdam. Beautiful Lake just 5 minutes walking distance away - take a walk or go for a swim on the little beach. Clean facilities, friendly and helpful staff. Shuttle Service worked just fine.

Disliked: Breakfast started at 9am - might be a little late for people getting up early. ;)

Liked: Overall I liked the atmosphere and friendly service. It is a very nice place for couple who want to spend a weekend or a few days just chilling and relaxing. Not the best place for those who want to enjoy Amsterdam and its nightlife. Traveling to and from the city will take you some time and money.

Liked: The atmosphere is great! Very relax and comfortable. suit to anyone who like to being in the nature and the stuffs are friendly and helpful. Full range of facilities suitable for few days stay, great place to meet new people. Only bad thing is that the location is bit far from the Amsterdam city center, however worth for anyone who want to stay away from the busy atmosphere of the city. Early spring can be very during during night, recommended to rent a heater from the stuff or you can just stay there during summer but not during cold time.

Liked: The hostel was a great place to stay. Clean, friendly, and everything you would like about a hostel. This one had a nice camping feel to it, while still being cheap, safe and warm. The only negative thing was to get to central Amsterdam is a bit of a travel. Other than that, it was a great place to stay!
