We stayed here for a week, firstly in a cabin (booked through HostelWorld) and then in a tent. It took us a long while to arrive at the location. For anybody wanting easy instructions from the centre via public transport: the tram is the quickest and cheapest way: 2.80 euro for a one hour ticket - get the tram from inside central station to "Spinnerji" (direction "Westwijk). The owner (I assume it was the owner) was a bit rude... I felt like I had to tread carefully around him in order to have a decent converstion. It seemed maybe he was a bit quick-tempered. Otherwise the campsite it great for the price, though showers cost extra and there is NO soap nor toilet paper provided in the bathrooms. There is a kitchen on-site for guests to use at their leisure, something which is brilliant and comes from sockets to charge phones etc.
The kitchen area had a seating area which was great for socilaing with other travellers, and the wifi was accessible here.
I did have issues with the wifi though.... half the time it didn't work. Whether this was the fault of the campsite or my devices, I don't know. But in the next place we stayed my phone & Ipod connected fine to the wifi, so I think it was probably the fault of the campsite.
Nevertheless, overall it was a positive experience, the location is beautiful - if just a little far from the centre to walk. If you go make sure to take toilet paper and soap!
