I stayed here during my recent trip to amsterdam. i was travelling solo and had booked a single room for myself. the room was extremely clean and warm. It was a bit small but compact with everything that you need conveniently located in the room. Meininger has a 24 hour front desk with very helpful staff. while leaving i had a really early morning train, the staff helped with my luggage till the train station (very rare in europe). Breakfast was an all you can eat buffet which was filling with enough choices. the only downer is that this hostel is a little far off from the city. it is right next to the train station however the GVB pass is not applicable on the sprinter trains and hence you had to buy a ticket every time. GVB has a bus which you can take from near the hostel with a decent frequency. Also there were not too many restaurants around in case you came back late and needed to have dinner etc
apart from that the hostel was very good
