What are the best Hostels in Amsterdam? I What should not be missed while in Amsterdam? Any recommendations on taking the train to Paris?
As a supplement to Janneke, the Guardian's idea of budget accommodation in Amsterdam: http://www.guardian.co.uk/travel/series/amsterdam-city-guide?INTCMP=SRCH. Also on the Guardian website the 'hidden gems'- see under Arts. Even for me as a 'Amsterdammer' surprising. North of Amsterdam (former shipyard NDSM): http://www.pllek.nl/ Enjoy!

It is safe - even if you are single ;-)) (I know I live around the corner). But beware of criminal activitities - e.g. drugs dealing, pickpockets - that you have in every city where many tourists are present at the same place. Have fun! over 7 years ago
See the official site of the city of Amsterdam- also in English: http://www.iamsterdam.com/en/visiting/spotlight/family-kids. My advice: NEMO (technical museum), canal cruise, city beaches, Depending of age: Royal Tropical Institute (KIT) esp. the "Tropen Museum Junior" programme (best in the world!).
