The people were amazing and it's a great place to be social! Only problem is the checkout which is at 10 am and after a good night out at Amsterdam ... oh boy!

ClinkNOORD hostel is a large, welcoming place set in an old laboratory that is a quick ferry ride across from Amsterdam Centraal train station.

The Location

The hostel is in Amsterdam Noord, a quite neighborhood that is easily accessible via ferry. The ferry connects from the central train station of Amsterdam, and once off the ferry it is under five minutes' waking to the hostel with the easy to follow directions. Trains run from the airport as well, so it is very easy and cheap to get to the hostel via public transport. There is a grocery store a ten-minute walk away as well. Noord is a quite neighborhood with some nice, large parks; bicycle paths; and cute cafs.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The hostel has a large variety of rooms for travelers on four floors, but there is a very handy elevator so you can skip the stairs if you have a lot of luggage. There are single, twin, double, and four-bed private rooms with private bathroom and shower for travelers or couples wanting more privacy. There are four- and ten-bed female dorms with en suite bathroom. There are eight-bed mixed and sixteen-bed mixed dorm rooms with shared toilets and showers. Rooms are all opened by electronic key card, which is issued at check in. There are large lockers in the dorm rooms and locks can be bought or use your own. The bunks all have a reading light, shelf, power plug, and USB plugs.

The toilets are clean and separate from the showers; the showers are large and have space to hang towels and put toiletries. Staff clean the shared facilities and dorm rooms every day. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the building. Free luggage storage is also available

Common Spaces

The hostel has many areas to relax and meet other travelers. There is a cafe, bar, common kitchen, library, and covered garden. There are many tables, couches, and armchairs where you can relax. Breakfast is served every morning for a fee, but when breakfast is being served, the common kitchen is closed to guest use. The reception area also has a coffee and tea bar with fresh pastries and fresh juice available all day. The cafe has happy hour prices for a few menu items from 5 to 7 p.m. along with pizza, burgers, and a few local dishes. The bar has drink specials as well that change every week. The hostel offers free daily walking tours and there are activities most days including yoga, for a fee, mixology at the bar, and traveler meet-ups in the evening.


ClinkNOORD is a very large hostel that is great for large groups, but since it is so big, a solo traveler might feel a bit lonely. The hostel is very clean; lively; and has an exceptional, multi-national staff to take care of guests.


ClinkNOORD Hostel Reviews from the Web

If you do a group booking via Hostelworld and book two full rooms, in Clink they book just beds and you have unknown people on your room and youre group is split up. Quite annoying.


Nice room, great social area and bar. Thought it was a bit annoying that some of the activities like pool and air hockey were pay to play.


Pretty neat hostel! Everyone was super nice, it is a bit out of Amsterdam but no issue getting into the city if thats what your plans involve. Cute little town, super cool seeing a place I didnt know existed.


Clean and well located


I stayed at ClinkNOORD for 3 nights in the 10-bed Female only dorm.

Check-in was simple and completed on an iPad on arrival. The reception staff were always nice but sometimes overworked in the evening once the bar is closed so patience is key then.

Overall the experience was very good, the room (though a little dusty) was clean and the en-suite and shared facilities on each floor were clean. The shared bathrooms could be improved with a squeegee like the en-suites for clearing the floor of water once you


Amazing as per usual, particularly Miss Audrey on front desk, very welcoming, informative and a delight to be around. Many thanks


Amazing Hostel, great location, clean, friendly staff.


The location is everything, close to everything and not in the annoying part of the city full of us(tourists) bar could be better. Staff is ok, the bartender from Spain was super nice, receptionist felt like I bothered with my check in.


the showers were disgusting! Moldy, not cleaned.


Suitable place to stay for very short term travel. The cost was cheaper than other places and you get what you pay for.

The location was great but other than that, it was a very basic stay. Bathroom was not dirty, but the rooms overall were not well maintained as far as regular cleaning. I felt safe here as a female solo traveler.

The free luggage storage before and after check out was much appreciated!

If you want a social hostel, you will not find it here.


The atmosphere and facilities are great. If you want to hang out and do some work or just rest, there are couches and game area. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The only thing is that you would have to take a water taxi every day to get to the center. I liked this because you are not in a noisy downtown area, but you have to walk a lot.


Got chucked out of the hostel on my second night for bringing someone back


Superb place for a stay in Amsterdam. Few minutes to reach city center by free ferry. Clean rooms, great activities and common area in hostel. Hostel has great food available even after midnight and check in also after midnight is good. Staff are super nice. Overall, I enjoyed my stay there and if I'm in Amsterdam again I'll definitely think of coming back to this hostel.


Perfect place for a solo traveler like me. Very close to central station. Lovely staff. Clean rooms.

I strongly recommend for solo/budget travelers.



Staff r very stupid


Great location and setup but the cleanliness and facilities could have been better. The shared kitchen is far too small for such a large hostel and makes cooking at peak times impossible but was also a bit grimy. The room was clean but with the constant turnover of people in rooms it was clear that it hadnt been deep cleaned in a while. There were lots of left behind belongings and even some used q-tips on my bed shelf when I arrived. The beds werent that comfortable either.


The hostel was great with organising events for a more social environment. Clean rooms with private bathrooms and overall a lovely hostel. Location was great, the ferry ride from the station is free and runs throughout the night which was amazing. Would recommend.


Rather simple, rooms musty smelling but the toilets were clean and the staff friendly, they gave me free breakfast when a small issue arose. They have cheap laundry services payable by card, spaces to socialise and the location is rather convinient with a 24/7 free ferry to the main trainstation.


The location is great but the rooms are small, dark and dirty. For the two night stay it was alright but I wouldn't stay longer.


Rooms were pretty small compared to other hostels I've stayed at but I was told this was normal for Amsterdam. Everything else was perfect
