Hostel Meeting Point
Ranked #55 of 238 Specialty Lodging in Amsterdam
Reviewed March 3, 2014

When planning our trip, we chose Meeting Point purely based on its location, expecting the place itself to be nothing more than somewhere to sleep. After our trip, we all agreed that Meeting Point will be our hostel when we visit again. We arrived slightly earlier than check in so went to the bar for a booze while we waited for our room to free up. The room was perfect, comfy beds, showers and bathroom etc just down the hall. The staff were helpful and polite, and one of them looked like he was constantly acting in a comedy. After a long day soaking in what Amsterdam had to offer, the meeting point was a brilliant place to end the night with a steady supply of booze and a smoke before bed. Meeting Point has a special place in all our hearts and WILL be stayed at again. Dorian.

We stayed at the Meeting Point Hostel while travelling through Amsterdam with friends. This place is a standard Hostel, what you would expect for cheap accommodations. It is what it is, a Hostel. There is a choice of dorm size, we stayed in an 18 bed dorm and it was a large room with a bunch of bunk beds! They have a bar area downstairs where you can get drinks, have a smoke or pick up breakfast in the am (1 boiled egg and toast).

All in all, the location is great, super close Centraal Station and the square, banks, shopping, etc.

I should add, I left my camera in the dorm room and took a train to Paris. I arrived back a week later and they had it waiting for me at the front desk. Pretty impressive!

If you're looking for cheap accommodations in a central location, you will not be disappointed.

it's a hostel. there's not that much more to say.

the location makes it. 4 minutes walk to central station, right on the fringe of the red light district, and tons of bars, coffee shops, and febos in the vicinity.

the bar is pretty cheap (i think 3 euro beers) but only available to people staying there. the beds are clean and comfortable. there's a smoking room connected to the bar.

my buddy recommended it to me. i say good looks: it was a cool place.

This hostel is VERY close to Centraal Station, and it's directly in the heart of the downtown touristy part of the city. Lots of coffeeshops, restaurants, and bars nearby, not to mention the red light district. The Meeting Point staff was cool and helpful. I met some great people in my room, but the majority of the people hanging out at the bar in the lobby were staring at their phones. :) Enjoy your stay!

Stayed here in for three nights recently and i have no big grumbles about this hostel. The hostel its self is in a very good location not far for the main station and you can walk to almost all must sees in Amsterdam. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean but did smell a little of feet. My bed was a little hard but my two friends beds were softer. First problem was there were no power outlets in a 20 bed room NOT ONE! in some ways this makes sense in other ways it makes no sense at all, but on the plus side the hostel provided plenty down stairs in the bar area which is open 24 hours a day. The general atmosphere was ok not the best but it was not the worst. The smoking room was small and cramped quite often but the view at night was very nice. My room was at the very top of the building which was a pain in the butt especially after a long day of walking around, but this is the case with every building in Amsterdam. overall a very nice break hostel was practical and in an ideal location would recommend to anyone looking for a good bog standard hostel for a good price. ticks all the boxes really.

Room Tip: 1st floor seems to have less traffic of people and you don't have the trek to the top floor

Good area. Weird atmosphere down stairs. So many creepy old men. Crappy bunks. One PowerPoint in a twelve person room. But in saying that it was very clean. Staff are a bit weird too but nice. Wifi not to bad.
