Meet Via Amsterdam

Only 10 minutes from the centre of Amsterdam we created a multi-functional playground for the curious new-age traveller ready to stretch their minds with new exhilarating experiences. We are here to connect you to the local scene. May it be in the city or in one of our fly and fresh designed communal spaces. Our aim is to help you to travel differently and discover the city in creative new ways. Who is ‘you’? ‘You’ can be a group or an individual. ‘You’ can be corporate or leisure. One thing is sure. ‘You’ is welcome. Just come as you are.


‘Urban elegance’ is how you could describe our minimalistic designed rooms. The focus is on the super comfy mattresses along with the crisp linen and fluffy pillows. The beds are custom build and equipped with headboard to ensure privacy and an electricity socket, USB chargers and headlight. Your valuables are safe as you have your personal locker / storage space. Let’s not forget the en suite bathrooms with kick-ass shower that will make sure you have all the energy you need for the energetic city life.

The Dude – Serious about food, but not too serious about ourselves.

You could say we are not Mr. Lebowski. We are the Dude. And the Dude abides. The Dude is a restaurant and bar where you can feel like the true dudeness you are. Haute cuisine is nice and all, but we feel it’s time to enjoy good food, rich in flavour and simply said; the food you crave. True to our city life philosophy we serve all day and late night. The restaurant and bar is the hostels social element that blends all our interests with all the interesting travellers, students and locals that honour us with a visit. This makes us simply love The Dude. Don’t agree? Yeah, well, that’s just like, you know, your opinion man. The food and drinks in The Dude are inspired by the whole American continent, from North to South. From the home of the hamburger and hot dog, via the land of the taco to the South with their mindboggling variety of food. At The Dude you can eat and drink your way across the American continent.
