What a great opportunity! The Castle would be worth the visit even if you don't spend the night. The room we had was very clean and well maintained and the staff were also very friendly. I'd recommend this to anyone traveling with kids.

Apart from reading very good reviews about Stayokay Heemskerk Hostel we knew nothing about the place or area so were very pleased on arrival that we had picked it. I stayed with my husband & two daughters aged 7 & 5 who felt like they were princesses for the duration!! We had a fantastic room in one of the turrets... More

Live in a castle for €80 a family ... Great fun, small and basic ... But real, clean and the kids loved it. 30 minutes to Amsterdam, 20 minutes to the beach, beautiful gardens ... Family rooms has own showers and toilet, unfortunately no aircondition - so wouldn't bring babies

This is a youth hostel and not really a hotel. If you expect a hotel, you will be disappointed as the rooms are worn and heavy on the lino, there are no towels (although you can rent them), you have to make your own bed and there are children everywhere. That said, we have kids and they loved the games,... More

The rooms were tidy, yet basic. Our rooms were located on the very top floor of the castle, which offered amazing ambiance and a nice view, but proved to be quite a trek for the retired grandparents who accompanied us on our trip. The breakfast was simple and sufficient. The staff was friendly. Easy drive to the ocean and to... More

From the one side you're going to live in the castle like the king and during approach this sense is increasing. Inside there are some traces of its former greatness - big windows, high room, view on the "king's garden"... But equipment of the hotel is very similar to those 200 years ago - only the needed things (hot water... More

Was here March 2013 with husband and 9 and 11 y.o. kids! So fun to stay in a castle even if just for 1 night. Great atmosphere! Love the concept of a family friendly hostel as it is sometimes hard to get a room for 4. Highly recommended for families.

We stayed only for one night in August 2012. Nice and charming! Doesn't happen to sleep in a castle!!!! Great price as an hostel, booked by Internet without any problems. Breakfast in the main hall is very good for a medieval taste and flavor. Recommended.

Value for money considering now anybody can stay in a castle. I stayed in Kamer Irene which is a 6-bed mix dormitory with 2 toilet and 2 showers. I had a lovely time at the castle taking pictures of the 600-year old castle and its surroundings which has a beautiful garden. It was a bit tricky getting to the castle... More
