A very spacious hotel-like Hostelling International public-transit accessible to the heart of Amsterdam's city center in Zeeburg, one of Amsterdam's typical neighbourhoods. Roughly 20 Euros a night beds you in a decent sized dorm room with private key access, own shower, bathroom, and storage shelves for your luggage. Pay per hour (.20/Euro) storage lockers located down in the lobby in a secure room by front desk. Internet and information room with plenty of computers to check email at. Humungous dining hall with decent meals - breakfast comes with each night stay. There is a lounge with happy hour - didn't have a chance to check it out as we were busy with the pub crawl (highly recommended). Lots of stuff to do and only 15 minutes transit ride to the city center. The hostel is in a former school building that dates from around 1900. Shares the building with a cinema and shopping facilities. The hostel rooms were designed by the famous Dutch designer Edward van Vliet. For those driving to Amsterdam, the hostel is a skip and a jump from the Zeeburg Park and Ride. Staff friendly and extremely helpful. Great social location. Rating: 5 stars out of 5.
I had a good stay here. We stayed in a room big enough for 6 people. Well, actually it was a dorm for 6 and there were only 3 of us. The hostel was very kind to let us stay in the big room and charged only for 3 persons. I booked the hostel about 2 days before leaving, out of desperation after my earlier booking in a hotel was cancelled to due to some problem. On the very last minute, I just made the booking after reading many good reviews about it.
Upon arriving, I felt relieved. The room was clean, beds, pillows, quilt, toilet and bath were all clean too. There's also a sink in the room. The staffs here were friendly and very helpful. Yes, I would definitely recommend this hostel.
Unique Quality: The room came with breakfast. Selection was quite limited, but I think it's fine. They served a few types of bread, boiled eggs, sausages, few types of fruit jam, coffee, tea, juices and fruits.
In front of the hostel, about 2-3 minute walk is the tram stop Zeeburgerdijk. Again I was so relieved. It was very convenient for us. The ride to Amsterdam took only about 15 minutes passing by interesting sights along the way.
To get here from Central Amsterdam you can either take the tram and stop at Zeeburgerdijk or take a train from the Central Station taking a train to Muiderpoort Station. Taking the tram would be much nearer to the hostel. If you take a train and stop at Muiderpoort Station, you will have to walk about 5-10 minutes.
I was wondering if you could give me a hand in finding accommodation in Amsterdam, for 56 persons, somewhere around 27th December this year. I was thinking about a hotel/hostel that could accommodate us for around 20-25 euros/person/night.
How many nights?
There's a possibility for 54 persons at
That's 36 persons in one building and 18 persons in additional B&B's at walking distance from the self-catering accommodation (at these numbers you should be able to negotiate a lower B&B price!).
The group accommodation would be about 16 euro per person per night (including tax, excluding 150 euro cleaning). The B&B's should be about 25 euro per night, which would level the price per person per night to about 18-19 euro.
Amsterdam is 10 minutes away and connected with 5 bus lines to Broek-in-Waterland. Weekends there are also night busses.
Of course there are hostels in Amsterdam.

I have my doubts if you still can book a group of 56 in an Amsterdam hostel for this Christmas.
From experience I can tell you this is a peak for Amsterdam accommodations and I wonder if any of the hostels will have that much space (two or three big dormatories) available.
