Post#9#.... What was so bad about the Hostel Meeting Point when you walked in and then out?? I've been staying there (along with tens of thousands of other backpackers) for years - and have never had a problem. It's cheap and spotlessly clean whenever I've stayed there. What's gone wrong??

It was the second time I stayed there. It was just the attitude of the staff. There was no lock for the lockers and the door to the dorm wouldnt shut so it was really light in there. I asked to be moved but they told me that they didnt give a shit and if i didn't like it I could go somewhere else. This was very late at night, so I just left and had to sleep on the train station floor. I should have just put up with them but they really annoyed me and I didnt want them to treat everyone like a piece of shit just because they know how hard it is to find a bed in Amsterdam. That person may not work there anymore so it's probably ok really. It just really annoyed me so I wont be going back there.

What an incredibly good Post. I was there just a short time ago. OK, it wasn't late at night - but I got a good bed, a locker, good staff at reception - and an excellent breakfast, all for well under €20.
Remind me never to try it late at night. I never book in advance and sometimes I arrive in Centraal Station late (depending on what flight I take - and if it's on time. EasyJet usually aren't!!). Oh - and I usually have something to eat and drink before I look for a bed.
Thanks for the tip. It's in my diary.

I'm also visiting those places this summer, and I found a few websites that you may find helpful.

www.eurail.com gives you train prices and schedules, and deals for youth and 2+ people travelling together.

www.hostels.com is a helpful way of finding hostels/Bed and breakfasts, although not always at the best price.

I booked all of my hostels through www.hihostels.com. They have a few options to choose from in Amsterdam, Berlin and Prague. Although you have to get a membership($35-ish), they're prices appear to be lower than comparable hostels. Hope that helps!
