Hostel Cosmos in Amsterdam
Regular visitors to Amsterdam might recognise the name Hostel Cosmos from its old place in the city centre. While the move to its new site near Museumplein means Hostel Cosmos is further away from the coffeeshops, this is more than made up for with more spacious rooms and closer proximity to the museums and galleries. Hostel Cosmos is strictly non-smoking, making it the perfect place for travellers in search of an Amsterdam hostel that is not going to be wreathed in clouds of smoke all day.
You can safely make a reservation through their booking engine at Booking.com. Just insert your visit dates into the availability check in the mid-section of the site and pick rooms after refresh.

Hostel Cosmos is just a short stroll from the famous Amsterdam Museumplein, where large attractions such as the Van Gogh Museum, Rijksmuseum and diamond showrooms can be found. To get to the hostel from Central Station, simply hop on Tram 5 to either the Museumplein or Roelof Hartplein stops. The hostel can be found between these two stops.
The 11 rooms in Hostel Cosmos are divided similarly to many Amsterdam hostels, with sizes including two-person twin rooms, four-person, six-person, eight-person and twelve-person dorms. Rooms and dorms come either with in-room en-suite facilities, or a shared bathroom in the hallway. All bathrooms include toilet, shower and sink. Those rooms without an en-suite bathroom do come with and in-room sink and a lower price tag.
Safety is a significant focus at this hostel in Amsterdam, and all rooms come equipped with security lockers. Locker facilities are also available for luggage before check-in and after check-out, meaning no matter what time your flights, you won’t be left dragging your bags around town.
For tourists interested in exploring the culture and history that Amsterdam has to offer, while still keeping to a budget, Hostel Cosmos is the right choice. This is helped by the fact that the extremely friendly staff is willing and able to give all kinds of advice and tips on where to go and what to see. The hostel’s book swap scheme is also a nice way to get your hands on a guidebook or even a novel to read by the canal.
This Amsterdam hostel offers a free continental breakfast each morning, always a treat for travellers on a budget. The canteen / dining area is open throughout the day and also contains tea and coffee making facilities.
