The Old Post Office is a boutique hostel in Halfweg near Amsterdam and Haarlem. This used to be a post office and we have implemented this idea in our hostel. The hostel has nice private rooms and a cozy living room and garden that you can use. Transport: The distance between the old post office and the station is 900 m, this is a 9- minutes walk, and Amsterdam Centraal is an 11 -minute train ride from us! Our hostel is 25 minutes away from Amsterdam Schipol Airport by public transport.

The space
Our space is unique because of the location. In 20 minutes (10 min walk and 10 min train ride) you can get to Amsterdam Centraal. Moreover, this is the perfect location because you can also visit Haarlem, which is a beautiful city and it's less touristy. Finally, you can experience the nature, the rural beauty of this magnificent village and the recreational forest area (Spaarnwoude) nearby.

Guest access
You can access the garden, which I highly recommend, you can hang out in the living room, which is a perfect area if you have something to do on your laptop, or the living room upstairs. The kitchen is equipped, and you can prepare meals for yourself, or get some of the free tea and coffee.

Other things to note
Wifi Signal might be weak on the first floor, although we have bought wifi repeaters. The best signal you can get downstairs in the living room. Also, you might hear some noise from the cars since our hostel is located next to the road.

Halfweg, Noord-Holland, Netherlands

The Old Post Office hostel is in a nice residential area in the suburbs of Amsterdam. Our neighborhood is very quiet and nice. Across from our hostel, there is a second-hand shop where you can find unique vintage things (read: cool souvenirs). There is also a bar, where you can get a tasty and affordable lunch, and of course a local draft beer with a traditional Dutch snack - bitterballen. On a 10-minute walking distance is the train station, and on a 2-minute walking distance is the bus station. There are several supermarkets in the area, where you can buy everything you need. These are on a 15 minutes walking distance from us. The recreational park Spaarnwoude is a gorgeous getaway from the city, located on a 15-min walk from our hostel.

We are a family running the hostel in Halfweg. After traveling around the world, we are ready to take hosting as a profession and provide the best experience for our guests. But most probably you will not meet us in person as this is a side job for us. We run everything online and let the housekeeping team take care of the hostel.
