Meet the Dutchies Staff:

Richard Lam

Richard is the owner of Dutchies Hostel. When Richard arrives, he brings an energy that can’t be ignored! 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.


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!


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!


Paul is the newest addition to our team. He is from Germany, but he grew up living in several places, including Tanzania! Paul is chill, kind, and always hanging out with the guests (even when he’s off duty), so keep an eye out for him and maybe you’ll get to hear some interesting stories about the unique life he’s led so far! 


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!


Franca, the assistant manager of Dutchies, 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!


It’s always a good time with Jim. He’s from the UK,  and is Dutchies’ youngest member. You might recognize him from his British accent and on-the-spot witty jokes. He is also working on a Bachelor’s in European studies and won the 2018 world-championship in Badminton!


Jaden, from the U.S., moved to Amsterdam to study, and she just finished her Master’s in bioethics. She loves hip-hop, vegetarian food, and traveling. She also runs the Dutchies social media accounts – if you ask her, maybe she’ll snap a pic of you and your friends and feature it on our insta!


Arian, from Cyprus, is friendly and easy-going. He came to Amsterdam to expand his career in dance. You might find him popping-and-locking in the lobby during one of our parties. If he’s not dancing, he may be meditating or even cosplaying – Arian’s always working on improving himself and having fun while he’s at it! 


Kandice is sweet, even sweeter than her fellow Canadians. She’s known for her colourful hair, constant jokes, and love of sparkling water. She’s well-educated and well-traveled — if you have questions about medicine or finding cheap flights, she’s the person to go to!

We are easy to find!
