MEININGER has been accommodating school classes since 1999 and over this time has gathered a lot of experience about how to provide school students and accompanying adults an unforgettable stay. The affordable conditions for groups, the bookable extra food options, the modern shared rooms for school students and the single rooms for teachers make MEININGER a real alternative to a youth hostel.
Safety/ 24h Reception
The evening tour of the city with the whole school class took a bit longer than expected? Good that the reception at MEININGER hotels is open around the clock and all the guests returning late are received with the usual MEININGER friendliness. And so that teachers, parents and school students can sleep easy, the keycard system ensures that the doors have the necessary security.

Upon request MEININGER serves groups of more than twelve people a delicious lunch and/or dinner, which is flexibly adapted to fit in with the schedule. The menu consists of three varied courses served as a buffet.
To start is a platter of cold meats, cheese and salad, followed by a warm main meal and a sweet dessert at the end.
Our stay was satisfactory. Room was very nice and seemed updated and we liked how the bathroom areas were separate albeit small. Rooms are dark but spacious and beds were average comfort. The elevators are ivercrowded and in the morning have extremely long wait times. Carpet in hallways look disgustingly dirty and old. Staff very friendly and helpful, pretty knowledgeable. Very convenient to train station and 1 stop from central Amsterdam however nothing to do in area around hotel.
Me and 3 friends stayed here for three nights and it was one of the best hostels I’ve stayed in. The staff are very nice and friendly. They did try and see if they could fit us in our room, unfortunately none were free. However, once we arrived into our room - a 7 bed dorm - we were happy to see how big it was. The beds were SO comfy, and clean. The ensuit was very nice, however it is seperate from the sink and shower, which was a small pain. Another thing was that there were 2 beds next to each other, as if to make a double bed, which can be fine when both are free and you’re travelling with someone else, but as a solo traveller and that being the last one left, it could feel a bit weird. Very good location, being a 2 minute (if that) walk to Sloterdijk trainstation and 10 minute train ride to the airport.All the other guests in our room were very nice and talkative. If I come back to Amsterdam I will definitely be staying here again!
Great hotel, great location, great travellers, great ravers, great food, great shrooms, great parties.
Friendly helpful staff, clean and quirky. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
