Voyagers Coffeeshop is located just to the southeast of the main entrance to Centraal Station. This is an especially high trafficked part of Amsterdam, of course, given that Centraal Station is entry and exodus point to the city for a large portion of its visitors each day. Thousands of people are constantly on the move, dragging luggage behind them. Maybe so, but Voyagers does sit on a less busy street corner at the northern tip of the Geldersekade canal. The spot feels a bit like a respite from the crowds hustling and bustling in and out. It is quite nice.
Voyagers coffeeshop is part of the budget smoker-friendly Voyagers hotel. It is found in the front entrance to the building, and consequently the budtender also acts as the hotel receptionist. The entrance to the hotel is actually at the side of the building, however, so the main entrance here is devoted principally to the coffeeshop. This hotel is quite popular with smokers. Many of those that book here undoubtedly do so to take advantage of its proximity to the downstairs coffeeshop.
The coffeeshop itself is not large by most standards. The tall thin construction common to old city buildings is quite apparent here. Voyagers exists on only one level, in the main floor of this building. There is an open room in the front here, with sufficient seating on most afternoons. Also, you’ll find a closed smoking lounge to the side. While the décor is sparse, the old wood in here is comfortable and warm. Further, there is a clear “retro arcade” feeling to its branding, as evidenced by the Space Invaders character that serves as the shop mascot. The gaming geeks in us just wish they would make good on it with an arcade. But we digress.
The vibe inside Voyagers tends to be quite chill, and highly accommodating to serious stoners. This is reflected in many areas. One, ready access to quality glassware. Another, they keep a Volcano vaporizer in this shop. Let’s face it. This is a requirement these days if you want your coffeeshop to be taken seriously as hangout for connoisseurs. And that is exactly what Voyagers aims to be, in our estimation.
As for the cannabis menu here, it is another reflection of Voyagers’ serious focus. While not expansive, they do receive a great deal of attention over its quality. They mainly sell weed here, often contemporary genetics from the USA. The coffeeshop has been definitely been partnering with quality breeders. Likewise, they often have a menu with competition winning selections on it. We recognize this shop as a connoisseur establishment; very deserved.

Voyagers is a small shop close to Amsterdam Centraal Station. Though they have a couple of small areas for seating, this serves mainly as a take-and-go establishment. This is a popular shop for its size. The draw: a reputation for connoisseur grade cannabis. They have earned this recognition through partnerships with established competitive cannabis breeders (you’ll see some highly recognized contemporary strains here). Pricing also tends to be quite reasonable. This is an excellent coffeeshop, worth a special trip.
