When lodging in Amsterdam, chances are you’ll either be staying in a big backpacker hostel or a small hotel in a converted canal house. For the most part, anything you find in the city center is a decent option, but there’s a huge range of value—some rooms are simply small white boxes with a bed, while others are lovingly decorated with attention to cozy details or an interesting theme. To get the most for your euro, consider staying in one of the neighborhoods outside of the main canal ring. If you didn’t come to Amsterdam to find a 24hr. party, avoid hostels in the Red Light District. If you came to get down all day and all of the night, centrally located hostels, often with late-night bars attached, will provide plenty of opportunities to meet fellow travelers with similar missions.
