Seeing the city

Public transport facilities are nearby, and the hostel itself is surrounded by a myriad of young cultural initiatives that have set up shop in this up-and-coming neighbourhood. The mix of temporary, art-minded guests with the artists-in-residence and the cultural activities in and around the complex, make WOW the perfect base from which to experience Amsterdam’s cultural and artistic attractions. The WOW lobby, restaurant and inner gardens are friendly and open places where you can easily make friends with like-minded people from all over the world.


The rooms are clean and designed in primary colours, appealing to urban spirits and art lovers alike. There are various types of dormitories, ranging from two, four, six, eight and twelve-person rooms. Each dorm has bunk beds and private bathrooms either in the room or in the hallway. WOW provides free Wi-Fi, bed linen, breakfast and a private locker for every guest to store their luggage in. A lock can be purchased at the front desk.
