“Clean, private and very nice!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

this was my first time in amsterdam and im used to staying in 4 plus star hotels abroad so i was a bit skeptical, but i was pleasantly surprised.

the location was a bit far away from the main town but only a 15 min walk or quick tram ride. Tram journey to the station however, but also located near melkweg club which was a plus.
rooms were clean, comfy beds, questionable texture of the sheets but if your just spending all day in the city it is the perfect place to rest your head.
we had private shower and toilets which was great and cupboards that had locks (bring your own lock).
breakfast was great, very European no cooked breakfast but plenty of cereal, bread, boiled egg, ham etc.
cant smoke in the rooms but has vondel park right next door so that was great and comfy reception area as you have to check out at 10 or 11am and you can rest/sleep there if you dont have to go home straight away! and 24hr entry.

overall very good, a bit pricey but it comes with the quality you get, one of the much better hostels.

Room Tip: bring your own locks!

Had a great stay here, the breakfast was good, and the rooms were nice. A very friendly atmosphere and the park right next door is beyond beautiful. My friend claimed he could stay there all day just lounging - super relaxing! They give you fresh sheets and everything is clean. I would def stay here again.

This is an awesome hostel centrally located. It is clean and has free breakfast. Sure it's not the 4 seasons breakfast, but it's more than adequate to help start your day. The staff is very helpful and they have a nice little bar on the bottom floor where you can go have a cheap drink and meet people. A free walking tour leaves from the lobby daily as well, and you can book any tours or excursions with the staff in the lobby. I stayed in a private room so I can't comment on the experience with other guest, but I surely will be staying here on my return to Amsterdam.

This is a great hostel, well located near the (wonder) Vondel Park and near to everything.
We were two in a room for four and we had a private bathroom, so it was great.
The breakfast is organic and very good.
I strongly recommend this hostel to travellers who travel cheap but with quality!

Stayokay was a brilliant find - very reasonably priced, good breakfast, and friendly staff. We had a room for four people with our own bathroom and it was fine - clean and functional. People have said it was a bit far out but we didn't really find that and it was also nice to be so close to the park. We hired bikes from the hostel and had a lovely, albeit snowy, ride round. I'd definitely recommend.

I stayed here for a weekend with friends on a stag do and have no complaints about the hostel.

The place is clean, secure and our twin room was very spacious.

5 minutes walk away is an area with loads of bars, restaurants and nightclubs. It is about 30 minutes walk up to Dam Square but we tried to end our nights in the area next to us due to how close the hostel is.

Lockers are available to hire for a full day at €2 or they can be hired by the hour at 20c per hour, very handy for late departures like us.

Towels can be bought for €4.50 (to keep) from reception as they are not supplied
