Our flight was an evening flight so we arrived in Amsterdam at around 22:00. The people from my class (5 of us) had all booked a bed in a Hostel in Utrecht. The conference was to be held in Hilversum but the cheapest accomodation was to be found here and oh yes, it was a good choice.
For some reason, besides just being a beautiful city, I also felt strangely at home there. If I had to go live abroad, the Netherlands would be a strong contender!
We dragged our bags from the station to the hostel and was signed in at midnight.
