Liked: This was an awesome place to stay. Exactly as the photos suggest...including the random animal status! The caravans are clean and comfortable, toilet facilities are immaculate and the kitchen is clean and very well equip. The breakfast is amazing, in both quality and variety, and free tea and coffee are available all day. The shop is very reasonably priced and also sells hot food till 11pm. The hostel is in a beautiful setting and I highly recommend hiring a kayak to explore the lake and canals and bike ride into Abcoude; both are cheap as chips to hire from the hostel. It only takes about 20mins to get into Amsterdam; the hostel shuttle is 1 euro each way and the tram is about 2.70. I found public transport in Holland to be amazingly punctual and frequent, and commuters were always happy to help! Holendrecht is a train and metro station so the airport and other city's are also easily accessible from the hostel. The hostel is cheap and great value for money, the staff are really friendly and helpful which helps to create a really relaxed, friendly atmosphere. I met some great people and had a brilliant time here ... you can't fault this place!

Liked: Friendly staff, heaters and extra blankets were offered for free as it was a bit cold at night. Waking up to the sound of birds was a great break from the noisy city. Good breakfast. It's not in the city center but they have a good shuttle service.

Disliked: Be carefull, the showers are a bit slippery

Liked: When we booked the hostel, we were aware that it was not close to the city. It was never an problem for us. But, getting there, we faced some issues like cleanliness and security, leaving the hostel before the first night. Is is important, from our perspective, to make it clear that the hostel is in the countryside without security for all rooms/trailers.

Disliked: > There were no bathrooms inside the trailers> There was no light inside the trailers
