Big, spacious, the breakfast is good + there's a decent choice, clean rooms and bathrooms. However, the staff was less friendly compared to other hostels I stayed in, more polite - addequate if you like to be treated as a customer and not as a friend. Though they have a bar with billiards or smth like that, the atmosphere is... More

When arriving, if you are having dinner there, or even if you haven't planned to, do it. The food they serve is wonderful! Well thought out buffet there will be something for everyone and it will taste amazing! The corridors aren't exactly clean, due to spillages, but the rooms are very tidy and the bathrooms also. They have a bar... More

This is a typical Stayokay Hostel with cleanliness and a generous breakfast included. Unfortunately, the staff did not enforce the quiet time unless you got up and complained and then it usually didn't work. There happened to be two large groups of teenagers (and their coaches) staying there who had little regard for any other people there. Other than that,... More

The common areas of this hostel had decent decor. But once I picked up my sheets and walked through the corridor into the sleeping area, I almost felt like I was in a prison. Okay, I'm exaggerating a little, but the rooms were completely devoid of any personality. Gray mattresses, gray floor. One room with the toilet, one room with... More

Stayed four days/nights in this hostel (3 adults, 1 toddler). We were pleasantly surprised to see how clean the facility is, what a complete breakfast, what a delightful location, and best of all, what a friendly, hard-working STAFF! All of them spoke English well, always pleasant, always patient, and very competent. We always felt safe and well-cared- for. We would... More

We stayed at the hostel for 2 nights in a 6 bed shared room. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The best part is that this is a very cheap place if you want to stay a short distance from Amsterdam. There is a bus stop right outside the hostel which takes you to Haarlem station in... More

My wife, daughter, and I just spent three nights at the StayOkay. It was...OK. We chose the StayOkay because it promised bike rentals and is located very close to a magnificent area for biking in the dunes. We weren't expecting anything fancy...and that's almost what we got. Some positives: 1) very friendly staff. They addressed (or tried to address) most... More

Enjoy some culture, visit a museum or go shopping? Or do you prefer wandering through nature, cycling between the dunes, going for a walk on the beach? It’s all possible in and around Haarlem. Furthermore, ‘Heavenly Haarlem’ – the ‘northern city with southern flamboyancy’ – has an extremely central location: the bulb fields, the windmills of Zaanse Schans and the city of Amsterdam are all within easy reach.
