Liked: Even though it is a bit far from the citycenter it is easy to reach with public transports. There is a young atmosphere, a lot of informations provided for trips, cultural sightseeing and so on. Breakfast is of good quality and you have a nice buffet.

Disliked: The rooms weren't that clean, but it was still ok. Generally it was not that clear how to proceed with payment. The hotel charged my credit card besides the first deposit of 15 % of the total sum also a huge amount one week in advance. It would be helpful to have a better communication betwenn hostelbookers and the hotel, so that you are prepared for that. In the booking confirmation it was written that total payment is to be made at place.

Liked: The facilities are modern and clean, great location easy to get into the centre, the airport and Loveland festival. The hotel exceeded our expectations and is fantastic value for money! 7 of us stayed in a dorm and there was plenty of space.

Disliked: The breakfast was fairly expensive.

Liked: The guest kitchen was very clean and well equipped. We were upgraded to a four bed dorm (instead of a 7bed dorm), which was nice for us. It's very quiet at night, no noise from the communal areas.

Disliked: We disliked the distance from Amsterdam central, but we were aware of this when booking.

Liked: The hostel is very close to the train station. It is a new property. It is clean. There are free wi-fi and the breakfast buffet(not free but reasonable price) is very good. Very quiet place, it can be good for people those who want to rest and relax at night, or bad for people those looking for party hostel.

Disliked: On the website shows that the property provide free towel but they charged 1 euro. I showed to the receptionist the website and she decided to give the money back. The problem is not the money but it needs to be clear in the website.

Liked: It's brand new and very clean. The stuff is very helpful. The hostel is not located in the city center but it's just next to a station which has really good connections to Amsterdam's main station so that's not a problem.

Disliked: The stuff did room service. That's really kind but they had some problems with coordinating the service. So everyday they came into our room and asked how long we're having until we've out of the room. That was a bit annoying.

Liked: As clean and professional as I've learned to expect from Meininger

Disliked: Only thing within walking distance is the train station, and public transport in Amsterdam is confusing and expensive. Guest kitchen is minuscule for the number of guests (it's normal to queue for the sink), and at breakfast time they take all the bowls and spoons out of the guest kitchen for the buffet. When I was there, the laundry facilities were out of order.

24 July 2014 Breanna would recommend this property

Liked: The property was more of a hotel vibe than hostel, but it was great clean, nice, safe and right next to a train staion. It wasn't in the centre of Amsterdam but it's only a few stops away from the centre. The staff were really lovely and helpful, I felt safe and the downstairs has a bar/cafe which was nice.

Disliked: I wouldn't stay here if I was travelling alone. There's not really the atmosphere to meet new people and if you're wanting to go into the centre of town at night then travelling back alone on the train is not ideal. It's not unsafe, but being in dark places alone at night is just not fun. I was in a group and it was perfect for what we needed, but I ususally travel alone and wouldn't stay here if I came back to Amsterdam alone.

Liked: The bathroom in the single room was nice. I liked the separation of shower and bathroom in the dorm room. i also liked the TV.

Disliked: Single room was too small, no wifi, not much variety at breakfast, left a pair of cheap shorts in my single room before swapping over to a dorm and nobody bothered to let me know. So cleaners either threw away or stole. Location was too far for price, Construction work on the walk to the hotel, too many young people, not enough free facilities like towels in dorm room, no lounging area, no free computers, no food for dinner, no closeby supermarket. Not enough channels on TV-sometimes remote didn't work.
