Lucky Lake is an unique hostel accommodation, different from the average hostels you find in the city

Lucky Lake is an unique hostel accommodation, different from the average hostels you find in the city. It is made up of cabins and caravans, 4 bed dorms and offers a great open space away from the centre of the city. The hostel is perfect for small groups as well as couples who prefer coming back to a more peaceful cabin instead of an overcrowded dorm in the city.

What makes this hostel even more unique is that it is beside Vinkeveense Plassen, which is a large man-made lake. Here you can swim, fish, enjoy water sports such as sailing, scuba dive and more. If you like walking, this is a great place to do this as there are miles of walking and cycling trails around. Take this chance to experience the countryside too and you can hire bikes from the hostel.

The hostel is located away from the city unlike other hostels. This great location also offers easy access to the city. There is a metro from Holendrecht to Amsterdam Centraal (less than 20 mins) and for 1 Euro one way, you can get the Lucky Lake shuttle bus and arrive at Holendrecht station in 7 minutes. The shuttle bus is also available from the station to the hostel. If the purpose of you trip to Amsterdam is to party and experience the nightlife, this hostel might not be the best choice because of the distance from the city centre.

In terms of food, there is a small shop in at the hostel as well as two supermarkets in nearby Abcoude. This is a small village where you will find a farmers' market on a Thursday.

The staff is very helpful at Luck Lake and are always there to help. They provide guests with tips and information for their trip, and contribute to the friendly atmosphere.
Prices are per person per night.
