Very secure, key card should be used to operate the lift as well as stairs is a very good idea. The restaurant was very good.
Situated in a former school building, WOW combines various different functions including 50 hostel rooms, suitable for travellers visiting Amsterdam as well as for artists and art school students. In addition, WOW has various events spaces, a restaurant, a bar, and an urban farm. All in all, a dynamic place that easily lends itself to meeting fellow 'residents'.
Discover the urban farm, the Plantage: a place where, in collaboration with the Amsterdam Graphics Studio, plants are cultivated to produce environmentally friendly ink. The greenhouse also serves as an exhibition space. The Plaza is a central area where hostel guests and local residents are able to meet and greet. Deliciously scented herbs are grown on the patio next to the lobby and the restaurant; a lovely place to work or relax. Furthermore, there is an annex with studio spaces available for making artworks and installations.
Stay in one of the brightly coloured hostel rooms, which range from 2-person rooms to 12-person dormitories. The dormitories come with a bathroom that is either located in the room or in the corridor. Each guest has their own luggage locker, and free WiFi is available throughout.Surroundings
