The location of Meeting Point Hostel was the first thing that impressed me, taking only a 5 minute walk from the main train station in Amsterdam. Upon arrival, I was really impressed with the style and vibe of the hostel. The walls were decorated with great paintings and the receptionist was really friendly. The security of the hostel was also clear, as we purchased a locker for

I absolutely LOVED this hostel. If you are used to having 5 star accomodations then this place is not for you. But if you are looking for a great location and great affordability, then this is the hostel for you! It is literally a two minute walk to the main train station, there is FABULOUS shopping one block over, and the red light district 2-3 blocks over in the other direction. We could walk to the Dam Square, and because the train station was so close we could go ANYWHERE very easily. Lots of restaurants close by too. In particular the one right next door to the hostel was delicious! It was nice having a bar right in the hostel and there was always lots of people to mingle with. You are allowed to smoke inside so if smoking isn't your thing then you might want to skip this one. Everyone was very friendly, the rooms were clean (just nothing fancy!). I stayed in the 18 person bedroom and it was just a huge room with metal frame bunkbeds but everyone was very considerate of each other (ie...noise). The bathrooms were very clean and were cleaned a few times a day. The only thing was the stairs. Our room was on the top floor and the staircase literally was like a ladder, and with a huge backpack it was a wee bit scary. But really most of the time we just laughed and joked about it. It is in a very old building and it has so much character to it. I just loved it! I highly recommend it to anyone who doesn't need frilly fancy travels! For the amount of time you are actually in the hostel, this place is perfect!
