Meet the Dutchies Staff:

Richard Lam

Richard is the founder and owner of Dutchies Hostel. He’s an Amsterdam-local but his heart is in Spain. He’s approachable and always up for new things, so be sure to tell him if you have tips for the hostel. It may be implemented next time you visit!

Interested in having a chat? You might find him upstairs at the “Dutchies Office”.


Franca is an Amsterdam-local with a heart of gold and a love for 80’s and 90’s music. You may find her doodling on the corner of a page or reading a good book. Despite her level-headed demeanor, she’s always up for a party!

Interested in having a chat? She’s either behind the reception or upstairs at the “Dutchies Office” on weekdays.


Sinan is an Amsterdam-local who’s enthusiastic and easy to approach. You might recognize him from his big smile or his loud voice, which can be heard in several languages: Dutch, English, Turkish, or German. Need tips on coffee shops? He’s the one to go to!

Interested in having a chat? He’s behind the reception on weekdays.


Anya, from Cyprus, is Dutchies’ very own artist. She is the creator of the big, beautiful mural on the right side of the hostel. Can’t get enough? Check-out some of the other paintings that she made. You will find them hanging on both sides of the hostel. And yes, they are for sale!

Interested in having a chat? She’s behind the reception on weekends.


Blaise, from Poland, is always smiling! You might find him air drumming or playing pool. He doesn’t like food go to waste, so it’s good to see if he’s hungry before throwing things away. He is interested in understanding people, so don’t be surprised if he asks you about your story!

Interested in having a chat? He’s behind the reception on weekday nights.

We are easy to find!
