I found this place not lacking in everything that can be expected in a Hostel. It is a large facility, and the friendliness of your neighbors is pretty much luck of the draw. It is a great location, and the staff, while very often very busy, were friendly and helpful about directions and information. The price is right for seeing... More

I stayed here last year for 4 nights with 5 friends its about 15-20 beds per room, I'm sure they divide you depending on your group as we was in an all male dorm (we was all male) and couples separated along with all girl groups. Good cheap hostel in a great location. Felt safe, The place has great help... More

I stayed here for three nights during a weekend trip to Amsterdam. On the plus side, it is in a great location, feels safe, has a friendly staff and was relatively clean. On the downside it's really not that great of a price for 20 person rooms, the free wifi barely works and there are little to no outlets. Overall... More

Does excactly what is says. You can stay there and it´s okay. I unfortunately left the booking quite late and it seems that they up the prices if you want to book short notice. However the dorm and bathrooms where reasonably clean, could overall use some fresh air though. The free breakfast was alright, toast, ,jam, some cheese, fruit, coffee,... More

Hostel was more than enough for what we needed to achieve. Plenty of assistance on the desk, very central location and all basics provided! Sleeping arrangements were basic as were the bathroom facilities but as said more than served thee purpose after a night out with the lads!

After staying in another hostel for two nights I realized that I must find a better place where I can feel safe and rest properly in Amsterdam. Then I found this hostel and I was happy for next three days without any complain. This place has bigger beds and bigger+safe lockers. It is clean and has a decent atmosphere than... More

My friend and I stayed here, me for 2, her for 1. I was a little skeptical having booked a 12 person dorm, but it turned out to only be 8. Beds were cosy and warm (a little too warm!) and the pillows were large and comfy. The lockers were right beside the bed and large which was brilliant. I... More

We stayed here and I didn't really like it. There are definitely better hostel options. The only plus is that they serve breakfast (but only until 930) and have a great location. Other than that I kind of felt like I was in a jail cell, I hate to say that but I really did. The bathrooms smelt completely disgusting.... More

The hostel is very conveniently located with good beds and the staff is friendly as well, though I would definitely prefer having at least a few more switches in the room. It was annoying to stand outside the room to charge your phone or sit up in the restaurant mindlessly just to charge you phone and other devices. All the... More

Hi there thanks for your comments. You can also always charge stuff @ reception (while our out for example) at no extra costs. Our bar is also like the living room where we encourage travellers to meet each other. A pity if everybody was just there to charge their phone. We like the place for a drink and have a... More

Stayokay is a nice hostel in good location, next to Red Light District. By walking, something arround 10 minutes from Amsterdam Centraal. It almost looks like a hotel, not a hostel for backpackers. It’s quite silent, organized and clean. There are big lockers for each person, for free. The breakfast is included and it’s pretty good. There’s also a Bar... More
