    • 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! :)

      I read somewhere that it is possible to visit the home in which the Otto Frank family lived before going into hiding. Is this case, and if so, where can I obtain further information?

    • Queen's day, or is it King's day now?

      Amsterdam Apr 13, 2015 at 12:06 AM

      4 years ago I landed at Shipol airport on May the 2nd. A big celebration for Queen's day was in progress, everyone was partying, and wearing orange wigs. there was lots of music and fun but no taxis to take us to our hotel. 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?

      Thank you for the info.

    • transportation and connection keukenhof to Haarlem

      Amsterdam Apr 14, 2015 at 9:29 AM

      We want to buy a ticket (bus858) and entry to the garden in Keukenhof. We would take the opportunity, since we will be in the area, to visit Haarlem once the visit of the garden is over.
      Is it possible to take a bus to Haarlem and come back to Keukenhof to take 858 bus (already paid) to get back in Amsterdam the same day, of course?
      How fare is Haarlem from Keukenhof?
      thank you
