Noordwijk is beautiful and this hostel is practically right downtown. They offer a shuttle into Amsterdam twice per day that you can sign up for. There is a bus station that will get you to Leiden where you can take a train into Amsterdam. The hostel has a good atmosphere with a lot of young people having a good time.... More

The location of the hotel was awesome: it's exactly 5 minutes from the sea and 45 minutes by shuttle to Amsterdam center. I was there for 1.05 public holiday, when it was impossible to find any place in Amsterdam hostels. Anyway, I have nothing to regret. The stuff was very friendly, funny and every night there was a concert of... More

So the location is really nice (close to the beach and perfect to realx for a couple of days) The staff also is very nice and helpful. But the rooms are very smale and just two bathroom/showes for to many people (we had to wait a lot. The beda are very strange. For the top bunk you didn't had a... More

Clean rooms. Hippy type place so a little of Amsterdam in Noordwijk. Bar is a little understaffed but staff were very nice and no problems. Younger clientele and gets very busy in the evenings. Nice outside patio are and smoking room at the back. Bad point was the local drug dealer trying to sell me cocaine..apart from that. Ok place.... More

This hostel was the last hostel on my backpacking trip with my best friend. Despite the yellow warning for high winds, being at this hostel was a blast. The people were all very friendly, the use of their kitchen was super nice (especially because there's a huge grocery store a 5 minute walk away), the beds were comfortable, and the... More

The staff were wonderful, I didn't know many of them were staff members at first because they treated the hostel as their home and behaved no differently than the guests with their chill attitudes. The hostel provides a shuttle to the center of Amsterdam many times a day for 4 euros so if you stay here you can still enjoy... More

The cleanliness of the hostel was immaculate and the staff were super awesome and friendly, they gave me a free pint of beer while I was waiting at the check-in reception. A few of the staff offered to show me around Noordwijk when I settled in which was superb hospitality. It may be out of Amsterdam which might not be... More

Booked this place for a cheap stay in Amsterdam for a couple nights and it was definitely worth the money. Stayed in the largest room they had and didn't have to worry about anyone taking my stuff while I was gone. Had a nice bar in the main area of the hostel, had a good time and met some really...

While backpacking around Europe, my husband and I stayed in many hostels and hotels but none compared to this one. The location is amazing. It's right on the beach. My husband and I watched beautiful sunsets there. Also, they provide a shuttle for just a few Euro to go to Amsterdam. Taking a train isn't difficult either if the shuttle... More

This hostel is near the beach but not near any coffee shops. They do make runs to ones just out side the city though so don't fret. It is quite far from Amsterdam but they have regular shuttles. Friendly staff, clean rooms, and reasonably priced. Enjoy your stay though.
