The Social Hub Amsterdam City (The Student Hotel Amsterdam City) offers exceptional value for money. This hotel offers both short-term accommodation for tourists and longer stays for students, digital nomads, and other long-term travelers. The rates are good for regular hotel guests, but you will get a particularly good deal if you are planning to stay in Amsterdam for longer than a usual holiday, with “short stay” rates starting from two weeks.

Because of this set-up, you will always get the benefit of a vibrant, young local community in the building – the vibe of a hostel with the convenience and comfort of modern, well-appointed private rooms. Also, because people live here, you get plenty of handy facilities like laundry, a gym, dedicated work spaces, and a great restaurant and bar for meeting your fellow travelers.

All the rooms are simply but pleasantly designed, with comfy beds and plenty of natural light (no hidden underground rooms here). If you are travelling with a big group of friends, don’t miss out on the Play Room: a VIP party suite for six people that includes a lounge area, Playstation, disco ball and – wait for it – dancing pole.

The location is further away from the city center than most hotels on this list, however public transport links are abundant and you can also rent a bike at the hotel to explore Amsterdam like a local.
