“Nice place to explore Amsterdam”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

That's the place for you if you have a car with you. Don't even try to park the car in Amsterdam or find a hotel with a car parking for reasonable price. The hotel is new. Big rooms and bathrooms, very reach brekfast. Full of young people. Easy access to city center by train (5m) or merto/bus (15m). Nice restuarant opposit to HolidayInn Express close by.

Being right next to the metro/tram/intercity station means this hotel is 5 mins from Amsterdam Centraal, 10 mins from Schiphol and convenient for all the city tourist attractions by tram. It's certainly not in the city centre, but with Amsterdam's excellent public transport network, it might as well be. They'll even rent you a bike if you want to get around under your own steam.

The hotel was clean and the staff were friendly, my single room was certainly very small but it had everything I needed. The bed was comfortable, the air conditioning and free wifi worked just fine. Even though the train station was right outside my window, I wasn't disturbed by the noise. There was a good range of food for breakfast in the bright, clean, canteen-style, self-clear restaurant. I really liked this place.

The hotel was very modern and clean with friendly staff. We had a 6 bed room that was very big with lots of room for 5 girls to get ready. We all found the beds and pillows very comfy. We didn't try breakfast (only because we wanted to sleep late) but it was reasonably priced.

10 minute train ride from centre of Amsterdam but with regular night buses (every 20mins) it's ok to miss the last train. I would recommend buying the all day bus/tram ticket.

Great time in Amsterdam but some very sleazy men about at night which is unfortunate for a group of girls. We dressed in heels and dresses for a night out but we were over-dressed (even in the club Escape girls were wearing jeans and converse) and got a lot of stares, and also the heels aren't practical for the cobbled streets.

Room Tip: If you're in a large group the 6-bed private rooms had plenty of space

This hostel was definitely more like a hotel. The whole place is decorated and furnished in a modern European style. The rooms were small, but made efficient use of the space. We were three people but we're given a four person room - a bunk bed and two singles.

There are power points and lamps by each bed, so everybody could charge their own devices - I've definitely been in places where there were only one or two available plugs in a four bed
room.

Each room has a TV and there were BBC channels. We had an en-suite bathroom which was very big and clean.

We didn't use the communal kitchen so we can't comment on that, but the place was quite big and most of the time it seemed busy downstairs. At one time we found it difficult to get to the desk to talk to staff because they were just swamped.

The location was alright - it's only a ten minute train to Amsterdam Centraal from the station around the corner, just bear in mind this is going to cost you somewhere in the region of €5 per day extra if you only come back to the hostel to sleep.

We got a pretty good deal on the room, I think somewhere in the region of £25pppn. So great value for money.

In all it was a pleasant stay and I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

The hostel is very well located (right next to one of the train stations, not central,) and the staff were very helpful as an overall impression of the Meininger Chain it was very good but I assume that you expect that from a large company such as them.
They did make one problem which you might want to look out for.
My name (Benedict) is a girls name in Amsterdam and we had booked a mixed room. to fit us in they put me and my friends into a female dorm. they did this without checking that I was a girl or that the other two members of my group were female either. This was rectified but they split us up instead of being in the same room as was intended.

Amsterdam was packed in mid-August when we visited and so a reasonably priced room with bedding for 4 was impossible to find in town. Meininger was easily reached by subway or train and was thankfully, away from the hordes of people everywhere we went in Amsterdam. A new facility, the hotel has an upbeat vibe and attracted lots of young travelers and families with children/teens.The common areas were well thought out and multi-purposed. The pool table in the evenings was covered in the morning and became a main serving station for breakfast! It was a very comfortable hotel, so we did not mind the commute into/out of Amsterdam (only a few minutes by train but about 20-30 minutes by tram/subway due to a transfer). Our room for 4 was tiny though. It was 2 twins together like a queen-sized bed and a bunk bed with a closet/cubby combination in the hall. There was one low stool that served as a night stand (lamps were on the walls) and a small table but no chairs and really nowhere, except under the bed to put our luggage. With four people (one staying in Europe for a semester abroad), we had 5 suitcases and this made a constant juggling act when we needed to get ready for bed or dressed in the morning. Only one person could move around in the room itself at a time The bathroom was nice, with a separate toilet room and shower room, separated by a sink area. Additional shelving would have been nice, but the facilities were quite nice. Nevertheless, Meininger served our needs and made a visit to the expensive city of Amsterdam much more affordable. (We also felt the breakfast, at 5.90 euros each was a good value, as they provided a substantial selection of tasty options.)
