Train Lodge Amsterdam: an affordable and unique hotel in a train

13 March 2017

YEARS AGO Train Lodge Amsterdam STILL DROVE AROUND Zürich

Train Lodge Amsterdam is a very unique hostel that you’ll want to try out for a night. You can sleep in a train, how cool is that? Not long ago, sleeping cars still went from Zürich to Rome and back again, but now they’re next to Station Sloterdijk. The idea of sleeping in a nighttrain might sound nice, but when it’s standing still you can really enjoy it. And that’s how the idea came about to turn a still standing train into a hostel.

Train Lodge Amsterdam has a total of 132 beds spread around 44 carriages. In every carriage you’ll find 3 bunkbeds that you can share with your own group, or people you don’t know. Time for a pyjama party! The interior is quite similar to the night train that you might remember from your trip abroad. A lot of wood and only the real necessities like a nightlight, storage area, and in this case a soft mattress and clean bedsheets, wifi and even breakfast.
