Hostels vs. Hotels – Episode 1, Amsterdam

Amsterdam

Amsterdam is one of the most popular destinations in Europe, and for a number of reasons. Traveller’s flock to the Dutch capital year after year to check out the curiosities and culture the Netherlands is so well known for. But no matter what brings you to the city, you want to be sure you pick the right accommodation. And since Amsterdam is such a popular tourist spot, sometimes you need to book well in advance to ensure you even get a room or bed. So if you can avoid it, we definitely don’t recommend leaving any bookings last minute!

Choosing Accommodation

Gone are the days of hotels being outrageously expensive and hostels being outrageously unclean and dangerous. Hotels have become more affordable, while hostels have become much more safe, exceptionally clean, and fun. But when it comes time to plan your own trip, where will you stay? Well, that depends on several things! Are you travelling solo? Is it for work? Do you like meeting new people? These are just a few of the essential factors to consider when choosing the right accommodation for yourself. So before booking anything, be sure to ask yourself these questions, and think about your general needs and expectations. Because at the end of the day, your choice of accommodation can make or break your vacation.

But maybe you don’t even know what a hostel really looks and feels like. Or maybe you’ve heard your Aunt Karen trash talk hostels, and you’re eager to prove her wrong. So to help you make that informed decision, our hosts cover all the topics you might be mulling over.
