Liked: Breakfast very good, friendly service.

Disliked: Horrible price for a coffin-like single room (88,00€!!!). This should not be allowed. If I had known the size of this extremely expensive single room, I would definitely NOT have booked Meininger. In addition: I had to bring my own towels. Remember: The teachers are the ones that book a hostel for a large group (in my case 26 students!).. and have to pay more than double of the amount students pay. Is this good marketing? On arrival times of several groups (Monday afternoon esp.) reception is overcrowded, staff can't manage. It's simply annoying to have to wait for almost 2 hours - esp. with a large group.

Liked: The staff were extremely accommodating and helped out with every problem we had! The tram ride in, whilst slightly long (10 mins top), was very simple and took us straight to Vondlepark and the Rijksmusuem! The beds and rooms were really clean and the train station next door! Over all I'd say it's a perfect place to stay for a casual break to Amsterdam with friends or family!

Disliked: Absolutely nothing

Liked: We had a 4-bed with a bathroom and were so surprised - it was HUGE! And very new. The bathroom was massive and very clean. Definitely the nicest hostel we have stayed in on our trip to Europe. The linens were nice and the beds were comfy, AND there are lights and plugs for every bed with USB ports - awesome. We didn't buy breakfast but it looked like a nice spread. Wifi was great for the most part and reached our room on the 3rd floor, but the place is massive so I'm sure they have good reception everywhere.

Disliked: Location was outside of the center but it's right beside Sloterdijk station and Amsterdam is so easy to get around that it wasn't a big deal. It was one train stop from Centraal station or a >20 minute bus ride, and from there you can literally walk (or bike) anywhere. The hostel only had one washer and dryer for the whole place, which is kind of odd considering its size.

Liked: The staff was extremely helpful and polite. Some of the best hostel staff I've interacted with. The hotel also has new and clean grounds.

Disliked: The location is not ideal. You must take a 30 bus or tram ride to reach anything you'd like to see during your trip. There are no supermarkets nearby and only one restaurant and Starbucks. The property houses a lot of guests and there is not a lot of common space considering the number of guests.

Liked: Nothing. Would I stay here again? Yes I would.

Disliked: Wanted to extend my stay by one night, took me 3 different visits to the desk. Apparently, they're busy or doing some admin tasks and to come back later. Place is generally clean, except for the room floors, they don't seem to be mopped or cleaned regularly, some surface tops had same problem - dusty.. I stayed in two different rooms and both had same problem.

Liked: It's a really fantastic hostel stay experience. I like this hostel so much, it's really modern, clean, functional. Every staff which I met is so kind, the location is also good, by walking two minutes to the nearest train station and metro station, you can get reach the city center really fast through metro or train without any problem. Anyway, I will still choose to stay here again when visiting Amsterdam.

Liked: Very clean and worth the short trip to city center since the hostel is right next to the train/bus station. They include towels! Helpful staff!

Disliked: I would have liked bigger lockers (large enough for a airplane carry-on) under the beds instread of near my room entrance. More privacy in the rooms would be nice...since no curtains around beds, it's difficult to have lighting on without disturbing roommates.
