“Clean and cheap”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

We found this hostel to be very clean, fairly cheap and with good access to the city centre. If we returned to Amsterdam, we would definitely stay here again and we have recommended it to everyone we know who is going to Amsterdam.

Just got back from a group trip .Hotel gave us all we needed . easy access from airport . just a 15 min train ride and very close to the train station. Although there are no shops or bars nearby the trains run until 1 am and just 4.20 euros gets you a return train ticket into Amsterdam Central station with trains running every 3 mins or so.
The hotel does have a little of a hostel feel as it is very popular with groups of young people. Having said that it is very modern and spotlessly clean.and was quite with not much noice made by other guests all were very well behaved. Rooms are adequate with hair-dryer and complimentary toiletries. and very very clean . with comfy beds. Breakfast of 5.90 euro's pp was excellent value with good choice continental style.

Only gripe was the 2 nights we spent there the bar was closed between 4pm to 11 pm so we could not even get a cup of coffee when we returned after a busy day and evening in the city. No coffee making facilities in the room. You can use the kitchen kettle at the bar so take your own coffee/tea etc.,
all in all though perfect for our 14 strong group of 40/50 yrs olds. would definatley use again.

Room Tip: we were on the side of the train track but noise is minimal .

A great hostel with everything you need nearby. Tram service is brilliant and regularly running.

Great value for money, very clean rooms, friendly staff and not too far from the city centre. Would stay again.

The hotel is nicely designed, good rooms and nice modern lobby. Kinda far from down town but on the bright side it's right next to Sloterdijk train station and bus station so transportation is easy.

WiFi was TERRIBLE almost no connection most of the time, which caused huge problems for me as I needed to finish important work online occasionally. The staff didn't really care about the bad internet service in the hotel and were not ready to help. We asked room service to change the towels, they took the dirty ones and didn't replace them with new ones!

Bottom line: It's not terrible but you can find something better for the price.

We booked an adapted room 10 months in advance called 2 to confirm.
When arriving in the hotel no adapted room available, and put in a room
where you couldn't get in an wheelchair.
After complaining was told the room was given away because there was
no mention as the adapted room was neccasary.
Next morning another receptionst acknowligd they where wrong that in deed
they knew we needed the room.
And they would compensate us for the inconvenionce , we got half our money back.
Bad costumer service.

Only good thing was the breakfast.

Room Tip: Don't book this hotel, rooms are very tiny.

This hotel was better than I expected. I booked there after a previous booking got cancelled and I think it was a much better deal. I Used booking,com and it was no problem at all.

The room was very clean and the staff were helpful and friendly. All you can eat breakfast was E5.90 and filling. Station Sloterdijk is a short walk from the hotel and you can get access to the city, airport and other areas of the country very easily.

The only thing I would say is if internet access is important to you then arrange something ahead of time because the free wifi is not something to rely on.

We made a last minute change on Hostelworld to stay here 4 days before we went to Amsterdam; previous place we were going to stay in had had horrendous reviews in the last month. The Meininger is perfect for what we needed. We booked a dorm for 5 people with a en suite shower room and toilet. Room was really clean; only really used it to sleep there as it's located out of the city centre. Not difficult to get to though from city centre just make sure you catch a Sprinter train to Sloterdijk railway station. Hotel is just outside station.
