With crazy numbers of tourists flocking to admire Amsterdam's magnificent architecture and wade through its centuries of art & culture - these days your dream trip can often turn into a pay-through-the nose, cookie-cutter experience.
This is why WOW hostel have made it their mission to provide affordable accommodation for adventurous travellers who want to discover the city of Amsterdam... in a unique and special way. With its very own artists-in-residence and loads of in-house cultural activities - WOW Hostel is sure to satisfy the artistic explorer inside you!
Located in the brightly coloured former Institute of Technology complex of Amsterdam’s Kolenkit neighborhood, this large & quirky building is hard to miss. Inside their eclectic living quarters you can choose from a range of sleeping options. Dormitories (sleeping two, four, six, eight or twelve) offer the classic bunk bed experience but also have the added bonus of a (rarely seen in hostels) private bathroom. For groups or those who need a lot of room to stretch after a long flight; larger, private family rooms are also available.
Free wifi, bed linen, breakfast and private lockers complete the set up, meeting all your travel needs; while the mix of artists and art-minded guests make WOW the perfect base to experience Amsterdam’s art-scene. Finally, the comfortable lobby, sumptuous restaurant and peaceful inner gardens are friendly and open places where you can easily make friends with like-minded people from all over the world or take some time out for a solo-moment of zen.
