The Crew is our most important service for our guests and we have made a choice that only family members will work here.

The crew owns the hostel together, they are brothers and cousins.

We have made this choose so the guests Always feel at home and the crew Always feel part of the hostel.

Meet our staffmembers!



After opening our doors for the 1st time in August 2016 we are pleased to invite you to stay with us and experience the modern and traditional side of Amsterdam. In Zaanse Hostel we act as a family and our goal is to make you feel part of it, be comfortable like at home and enjoy every moment. We have a 24‐ hour reception, so we’re always there to provide you an excellent service and give you the best recommendations regarding the places to visit and things to do around.

Zaanse Hostel consists of 8 spacious rooms which are divided in dormitories and private rooms. There is a kitchen in every room and a Free Wi‐Fi connection provided in the whole building. There are Free City Maps of Zaandam and Amsterdam at the reception, do not hesitate to ask for one. We have bikes for rent too (please ask at the reception for more info). If you’re planning to visit us by car, don’t worry about the parking at all as it is free in our area. To make you smile while you say “good morning” we provide a Free Breakfast which is included in the price (to be honest we know that there are many coffee maniacs out there, so we do our best to feel a bit more safe).

We’re looking forward to meet you all here and make your stay unique.
