“Much better than expected!”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

We opted to stay in the hostel part of this hotel to save money but we were pleasantly surprised at just how nice the rooms are. It was nothing like the usual dormitory style hostel rooms full of people, it was a regular Meininger hotel room that you just so happened to share with other people (rooms of 4). It was very modern, clean, nice showers, sufficient plugs and offered lockers for travellers to use if they had their own padlocks!

The hotel itself is not in the main city, but far cheaper than staying in the main city. It's very close to the train station which takes you into town.

I would definitely stay again!

Stayed in this hotel for 2nights and was very impressed by it. The Hotel was modern & clean, it had a good atmosphere, the staff were very nice and helpful. It is slightly out of the city so expensive for taxis but there is a train station 2mins away from the hotel which runs to the city regularly, but it does not run past 1am. I would defiantly recommend this hotel for young & old people. I will be staying here again in the future.

I stayed at the Meininger hostel in Brussels...again in Amsterdam for 2 nights (both times in mixed dorms) ..and loved it, rooms are Very clean, modern, smart (e.g. desecrate reading lights, power points and bedside tables in the bunks so as not to disturb others in the room) the staff are friendly and helpful, the breakfast in the morning is a must, i also used the laundry and kitchen here in Amsterdam and it was great, the hotel/hostel is in a pretty good location, its right beside the train station and is a really easy 3 min train trip to the middle of town .. so great in-fact that ive just booked in to the Meininger's in Germany, Austria and London for when i will be there... great place for families, couples, business travellers and a must do for back packers!
Highly recommended!

Brand new hotel, clean and in a strategic position to reach the center of Amsterdam and the Schiphol's Airport. 2 stops from Amsterdam Central Station which is only 100 mt from the famous Dam's Square. Good service. Staff always smiling and helpful, it never hurts!
