18 June 2008 david would recommend this property

Liked: Absolutely loved the caravan it was cute and very comfortable. If your lucky enough to get some good weather the outside seating is perfect for sitting reading a book/ chatting and having a peaceful smoke. Very quiet at night, great for ending long days walking round amsterdam. The kitchen is a great way to save some money on food as its expensive here. Although it takes about 30 mins to get here from the centre it's definately worth the extra travelling. We loved it thanks x

Kimberly Burns

15 June 2008 Kimberly would recommend this property

Liked: I really liked how the double rooms were set up. Each set of people for a double gets a small trailor. You are able to lock your stuff in the trailor and therefore keep your stuff out instead of having put it all back into a locker. My favorite was the overall enviroment. There are hammocks, fountains, scuptures, a lounge, a place to cook and more.

Alexandra Misan

09 June 2008 Alexandra would recommend this property

Liked: It's very chill smaller hostel. the only negative side that it is kind of far from city center, but if you're going to Amsterdam for a lengthier time (I was there 2 days) then it's even better cause it let's you get away from hecticness of the city!

Customer review

08 June 2008 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The atmosphere is really chilled out- you're staying in caravans which is a cosy little change from regular hostel dorms/rooms. The lake really is beautiful and in summer it would be perfect for lounging around sunbathing and swimming. It was a great place to be if you really are in Amsterdam for the smoking weed side to things. Lucky Lake prides itself on allowing you to smoke anywhere on the premises (besides in the caravans) and I think i was the only non-smoker there. Nothing wrong with that- but because I wasn't lying around in hammocks smoking and wanted to be in the city centre, the location was a problem. Be aware that you will need to spend a fair amount on transport every day (four strips of a 15 strip card plus money for a bus or 2 euros for the hostel run shuttle each way).

Anne-Marie McKaskle

21 May 2008 Anne-Marie would recommend this property

Liked: Loved the location near the lake. Great staff and uber-relaxing atmosphere. Might be cold but they provide free blankets. Pay for small space heater. Some people consider it "camping" but you have your own private caravan and a public lounge. Kichen and bathroom facilities were better than expected...Great Hot water for showers.
