    • Hostel with best atmosphere in Amsterdam?

      Amsterdam Apr 3, 2015 at 9:44 AM

      Hey there!

      We are a group of 4 travelers age 22 and we will visit your beautiful city in the summer.

      I've been looking for a nice social hostel in the middle of the city... I narrowed it down to 3 main choices:

      St Christopher's at The Winston

      Durty Nellys Inn

      The Bulldog

      All looks decent enough and are in great location, however I've been worrying a bit about the atmosphere. The first 2 doesn't have common rooms. I've been reading reviews and some say the atmosphere is not very sociable... one said "Lack of common area like other hostels is a bit of a downer. People don't seem to make friends with each other in this hostel", other "not much atmosphere within the hostel and hard to meet people outside of your room". So I'm kinda worried about that.

      How is the social atmosphere in those hostels? which is the best one, social-wise?

      Thanks! :)

The only one who agreed left us about 5 blocks from hotel because of the crowds. We had to walk with suitcases.

      A friend of mine is planning a trip to Amsterdam on May 1st or 2nd. When is this celebration going to be held? Is it better for my friend to postpone her trip for a day or 2?

      I'm living in Germany and have a plan to go there either this week
      or next week(this weekend is more comfortable for me).
      But I'm not sure whether or not the tulips fully bloom at this time
      (let's say 16 April)
      Because it's recommended in some website that the best time is around
      mid-april to first week of may.
      Any suggestions?
