Essentials you need to know about Amsterdam's BEST Hostels

Here are some essential insights into what you should consider when looking for the best hostels in Amsterdam:

Location: Hostels in Amsterdam are spread across the city. It's essential to choose one close to the sights and experiences you're most interested in. The City Centre, Jordaan, and De Pijp are popular areas due to their proximity to major attractions.

Amenities: Standard amenities should include free Wi-Fi, lockers for your belongings, and clean bathroom facilities. Some hostels also offer bonuses like free breakfast, bike rentals, or a common kitchen.

Price: Amsterdam is known for being a bit pricey. Consider your budget when booking your stay. Hostels offer dormitory-style rooms which are more affordable, but private rooms are also available for a higher price.

Social Atmosphere: Many hostels have communal areas for socializing, events, or tours to meet fellow travelers. Check if the hostel encourages a vibrant social scene if that's something you're interested in.

Security: Look for hostels that offer secure entry and lockers. Some hostels have 24-hour front desk service, which can add an extra layer of safety.

Reviews: Before making your reservation, always check reviews from previous guests on reliable sites. These offer unfiltered insights into the actual guest experience at the hostel. Here on Hostelz we have extensive reviews on all hostels.

Remember, the “best” hostel will largely depend on your personal preferences and what you're hoping to get out of your Amsterdam experience.
