Hi all,

May i ask if anyone knows of any cheap hostels in Amsterdam - whether near the city centre or quite close to central Amsterdam.

I will be going there on Sunday 2 mar > Tues 4 mar

Also, would anyone know of the best place to change pound sterling to euros?
the best i can find so far is around 1.28 commission free..

I hope the pound gets stronger for the summer..!

Many thanks

i stay at amstele boatell which right near everything 1min walk thats about 40 pound a night:thumbsup:

I stayed at La Boheme. Very basic but right on the square so the location was fantastic. Think that was about 40 pppn.
Not suitable for disabled as very steep stairs.

I always buy Euros from Travelex at the airport. travelex.co.uk/uk/…spx if you order 24hr in advance it is commission free and ready and waiting at the office you select. You must know your terminal and specify which outlet you will use, normal choice is before or after security. For £3.50 extra they 'buy-back' any unused at the same rate, again without commission. Factor in the convenience and free commission and the 1c difference in rates is not much to worry about - how much are you planning to change? Pay by debit card to avoid extra credit card fees

i just came back from amsterdam last weekend

the pound is so weak rite now, be prepared for a shock!!

you get a much better rate in amsterdam then you do in the uk!!!! change it over there!

we made the mistake of doing some at uk airport, and we got alot more in amsterdam!

forget the hostels mate, as your arriving in non-peak times u will get a hotel in amsterdam for around 40 euro's per night..........easy!!........just haggle!!

Whatever you do, do not stay in The Globe, its cheap £35p/n and great because its right on the strip, But when we got our room we had 3 bunk beds a mattress on the floor and a very dodgy communal shower! soap on a roap anyone!.

I am off to Amsterdam this yr, i put up a post and was recommended The Bulldog Hostel its a 5* Hostel.
