    • 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! :)

    • 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.

      We visited valkenburg in 2010 and toured caves and/or catacombs. Tour operator spoke English and showed us where the America soldiers listened in to the german soldiers on the other side of the walls. Would love to take son-in-law to see this. We will be in the area next year around the 6-7th April. Any help to confirm we can arrange this tour most appreciated. Also accommodation for 4 adults and 3 children for 3 nights. Thank you kindly.

      Any hostels in town?

      by northeast80 Online Now Oct 9, 2006 at 2:56 AM

      I've been looking around for a cheap place to stay in Valkenburg and can only find expensive hotels, all the links on google to hostels turn into nothing.
      I could do a day trip but the train one way from where I'm staying will be 3.5hrs, a little too long for a day trip I think.
      Unfortunately I'll be too early for the Kerstmis markets, but I'm sure we'll find a lot more to do....

      by Maeve_81 Online Now Nov 19, 2005 at 6:14 AM

      Hi all
      I'm planning a trip to Valkenburg and surroundings early december.

      Can anyone recommend me a cosy b&b with a fireplace, no tv and a great breakfast with pindakaas? you know what I mean :)
      If not, any comments on 't Vakwerkhuis and Kasteel Schaloen, those where to two places on the website of VVV Zuid-Limburg that I liked most.

      Offcourse I would like to visit the Christmas market in de gemeentegrot and the fluweelengrot (found all information on the Valkenburg Kerststad website) but I also would like to go hiking or biking in the area. Any tips where to go for fantastic views? Can I rent bikes in the neighbourhood?

      Thank you, groetjes Elke
