Went as a group of 8 and paid the cheapest price (for a mixed dorm of 20) but got a dorm of 8 to ourselves. Reception was friendly and reasonably helpful; beds were comfortable with colourful sheets; breakfast was satisfactory (bread - not toast - cheese, ham, chicken, jams, cereal, coffee, orange juice); bathrooms were okay - slightly soggy floors....

Stayed here for 2 nights in October 2011, was bitten by bed bugs both nights. The chill out area is directly in front of the front desk and the staff bang around like they are angry that you are there. It is handy to town though and it was super cheap which is what we were after. We were in... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. Location was close to Dam Square and it is only a couple of stops away from the main train station. Stayed in a room of 16 beds but it was quite spacious for me. However, there were only a couple of outlets in each room so we had to take turns plugging our laptops/cellphones. Locker... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. Hostel is in quite a good central location, which is cool. The staff are really nice and friendly, and pretty helpful. Only bugbear is general hostel stuff like noisy roommates and smelly bathrooms! Oh, and coming in late one night got a shock as a mouse went darting past me on the stairs!! Overall for... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in the private room. It was small (but that is to be expected), clean and contained a sink and mirror. Breakfast was included in our stay and the selection of food options available were decent. The location of this hostel is perfect for exploring the Red Light District. The staff are friendly and give out... More

charged for all extras, only two plugs for 16 beds, toilets next to showers lots of them but floor always soaking and nowhere to put stuff down made everything very awkward. breakfast good, but ends at 9.30. location near red light district perfect if thats what ur after but def the most tacky/ touristy area.

This is difficult to review, but I shall start with Stayokay's virtues. It is very well situated near the red-light district but not in it, on a canal only blocks from a lovely little market square and very easy walk from Amsterdam Centraal (train station). The breakfast is nothing special but the room is big and spacious and overall the... More

As some of the other reviews said, it was OK. Better than some Amsterdam hostels, acceptable breakfast with a dining area overlooking the river. No lifts, exhausting when you're on the fourth floor!! Could be cleaner, but didn't feel dirty. Wifi not great, didn't reach the top floor. About 5/7 minutes walk from the Red Light District. As I said,... More
