WOW Amsterdam Hostel
Bos en Lommer
Bos en Lommer
The hostel is quite cool and clean and huge. The breakfast is really nice. Its around 10 mnts walk to the nearest bus stop and metro station. We definitely enjoyed our stay. Recommendable!
Very clean, just a few mins walk to metro, located in a very quiet place”
Cheap, and very clean.
I like that the beds are big and sturdy. The toilets are clean as well as the room. Breakfast are also good! You can leave your luggage for free. The only problem is that it is far from metro/tram station. You had to walk for 12-15 mins from the bus/tram station going to the hotel. But overall, we are satisfied customers!
Good value for money”
I have stayed here a few times over the years. If coming from Central Station, you will likely travel here by Coach or Tram, being a little further out from the centre. I feel this place offers good value for money, especially Monday to Friday. Weekends, it gets a little pricier as is the norm for all hotels. It has always been clean, and comfortable. The dorms are spacious and not cramped (have only stayed in a 4 bed dorm so can't comment on others). One slightly downside is you don't get a towel, so have to purchase one there or bring your own, normal for some hostels, but not all. Another upside is you do get a free & good breakfast here, bread cheese ham, toast, cereals, fruit juices, and a decent latte or cappuccino. Yeah, the Wow Hostel is very good actually.
free unlimited breakfast (hahaha which is good for budget traveler), nice cute place, i enjoyed my stay coz i had wonderful nice international roommates which every night we gather to chitchat about everything, lol
Moderate price, that's all”
It's worth no more or less than the price. You'd have a great stay unless you expect too much. The hostel is located quite distantly from the downtown. It took about 30-40 mins to get there. You should hire a bike or buy a transportation ticket. A bed was comfy, and beddings were clean. No amenity was in a room, so you should bring all stuffs you need like a towel, a dryer, etc. A breakfast was also normal, and the same menu was served everyday.
Very pretty nice
Worth money ”
Everything was Perfect, breakfast, service, location
Bad and creepy neighbourhood”
I understand that this is a cheaper hostel, but for any female solo traveler, I do not recommend this hostel at all! First, its so far from any station, when i was walking to the hostel at around 7ish 8pm, still bright out, i had to walked under a bridge, and it was scary, there was homeless people just peeing on the street. When I got to the hostel, staff at the reception is so rude that it feels like it was my fault booking the room so they had to work. And I felt wrong and stupid asking questions because they just made you feel that way. When I was heading out to the supermarket, at 8ish pm, still bright out. There are kids and people, but not like crowded, probably a few every few blocks away. A guy walked opposite my direction and walked towards me, and I immediately hid my phone. Then when he walked pass me, I looked back and he made a turn and followed me. I looked back a few times, he was still following, so I walked out a bit to where the cars parked on the street to let him walk first, so that hes not behind me. And when he was in front of me from a distance, he kept looking back and suddenly, he crawled down and walked and hid between the cars parked on the street. And luckily there was a playground with kids and family on the other side, I just ran to that direction and went back to the hostel. When I told the staff, he said maybe I just met a weirdo and that staying on the main street is fine, he said it in a bad attitude, and that street was direction from hostel! I checked out early morning and walked a far far distance to the train station to switch to another hostel.
+ : excellent breakfast, the dish of the day served in large portion and great taste with reasonable price. The staffs there are generally helpful and friendly especially the ladies at the restaurant. - : bed bugs! my friend and I stayed at WOW for 3 nights in room 314 and both of us had multiple new bites overnight. It is still itchy and takes more than days to heal :( The keycards system also not functioning well, we had to activate it everyday otherwise will be locked either outside the room or toilet (separate). very frustrating experience The location wise is far from the city but luckily still easily accesible by bus 21 or tram 7, 14.
a worthwhile hostel”
I am a student come from Norway, I can say this hostel is the cheapest hostel i can find not far away from city center. If you bought a travel ticket( I bought 3-day travel ticket and it's color is blue), you can always come back to this hostel before 1 am. 12 people in a big room with one toilet and one bathroom but luckily there is no struggle moment for me. In a word, it is always a wise idea to choose this hostel if you have a tight budget :)
Space is great and the graphic elements are really good too. Had a nice exhibition going on when I was there. Beds were clean and staff friendly, only awkward part was the sockets that was blocked by my bed frame. But a small issue to point out at all. A small walk away from the tram stations. But all in all a really nice place
Comfort cozy but far away from tourist attraction”
It's a hostel, but surprisingly for one room (5 or 6 beds) there is a attached bathroom. Room is big. Breakfast was ok, but staff on duty in breakfast was rude. Far away from Amsterdam Central (bus 21 or tram takes about 15-20 min). Buy the 48 or 72 hours unlimited travel card. Nonetheless, it is value for money.
This hostel is just incredible. Very unique and comfortable environment that you hardly find in other hostels. I love the little lamp in my bed. This hostel is just like a hotel. The view from the room is amazing. Comfortable beds as well. Helpful and friendly staff. Nice breakfast. Will definitely come back next time!
Clean & tidy, but staff were very angry, stress and aggressive. Would NOT stay again.”
Hostel was clean & tidy (no bedbugs as mentioned in other posts), and the facilities were good, my only complaint was the staff. Every interaction I had with staff or witnessed between staff and another guest was angry, aggressive and just unnecessary, which I can only assume was down to a stressful working environment. For example, politely asking if there are toilets on the lower floor, the response was an aggressive pointed hand and being told to "look next time before i open my mouth", or being woken up past midnight being told in a very aggressive manner that I must go to reception right now to make payment, and to "hurry up, hurry up" while they escorted me down. Lucky enough I didn't just make another full payment as demanded but asked to talk to senior management who quickly worked out that there was indeed a problem with their payment system.... haha. In summary, provided a place to rest but would not stay again, there are MUCH better hostel options in Amsterdam.
Everything was so perfect but at night I got bitten in three different spots, I thought it was a mosquito bite so I let it go but around 3 am I woke up to use the bathroom and I saw two big bed bugs on my blanket . It was gross!
room is great， large and clean. It is a little bit far from the transport especially with suitcases.
everything was good
Too far from city centre”
Staff are unfriendly, the place is too far and I find a hard time trying to find it as I don’t have internet to navigate the place. Shops nearby closed early.
Rooms and space are big. ”
The environment is wonderful and the restaurant is good,too.I enjoyed the breakfast and dinner there.
