I had a week free on my way to Switzerland, and after a wonderful experience at a Stayokay Hostel in Maastrecht, Holland last year, I was delighted to find another Stayokay Hostel, and this time in a centuries old genuine castle. Because the castle is often booked to the hilt with not only holiday makers, but with school groups and... More

The castle is wonderful and has beautiful gardens out back. I couldn't stay in the castle itself as a large group had taken all the rooms, but the other building was fine. That building is being refurbished, so the outside was decrepid looking but the inside was clean and well set up. Except for the stairs! Hard to get your... More

Heemskerk is an amazing 13th century castle with bags of character, turrets and a moat included! Rooms are clean and well maintained. The bar and the outside seating area are way above the standard you normally expect of a hostel. Breakfast was ok and plentiful, as was the evening meal. The grounds are worth the visit alone. The staff team... More

This hostel exudes character. Situated in a quirky 13th century castle, he rooms were clean and adequate. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The grounds are spectacular. But access to the hostel is best made by car or pushbike as it's a little out of the way. I'd definitely stay again!

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
