“Surprisingly good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2011

This hostel is exactly as described; a budget hostel right in the heart of the red light district. If arriving by train, the 5 minute walk couldn't be easier and in terms of proximity to other attractions, Dam square is 5 minutes walk and Anne Frank Huis is probably about 10. If you want to visit other places such as Leidseplein or Vondelpark, the walk is slightly longer or you could take the tram - it's not a difficult place to navigate. The hostel was brilliant - we were a bit sceptical at first but the staff were very friendly, the rooms were extremely clean and airy, and the breakfast they provided was a good addition, even for the small fee 5.00EUR.

Hostel was within the red light district so it probably wouldn't be suited to anyone that isn't interested in visiting that area of amsterdam. 2 minute walk from central station and Dam square so amazing location. Beds were comfy and the cheap breakfast option was very worthwhile. only downfall we experienced was no hot water in the showers or taps. maybe there is a certain time you need to shower if you want hot water but we never worked out when it was. would recommend it though despite this fact. Also if you want to see amsterdam the bike tour is by far the best way to do it, Mikes Bikes does a tour at 4pm, well worth going on!

Hostel Meeting Point, is a very short walk from Central Station and is located near all the majour tourist attractions. What I love about this place is the 24 hour open bar. If you can't sleep, you can always go downstairs and grab a drink. And the people that run and work at the place are really friendly people. The rooms are what you would expect at an average hostel, And despite the bad reviews on here, I found them pretty clean. The only bad thing about staying here, and I have stayed here 3 times and it has happened every time is the dreaded morning vaccum. Definately not a fan of that. Especially if drinking the night before. Over all I have stayed here many times and will continue to aslong as I travel to Amsterdam!

What else can you expect when you pay 15 euro per night in a hostel with very good location, very close to the central station and in the redlight district.
Fortunately I stayed for one night in this hostel. The beds are ok and if you want locker you have to pay for it. The hostel has a pub in the first floor, is good fun with good prices. The room was smelly and the toilet is not clean at all.
