4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

A very nice place to stay. We've stayed in a room for 6 with private facilities. Everything was clean. The staff was fine and the breakfast was very good. The location is suberb, in quiet park near the center (five minutes walking from Van Gogh museum). If you don't like to walk there are several trams nearby.

We stayed in a private 2 bed dorm and it was just what we needed - the whole hostel was. Breakfast was very fine. We were out most of the day so didn't hang around the hostel that much and as a home base, this hostel was great. I would recommend this hostel to any group of friends.

Nice hostel, actually do not looks like a hostel and more a hotel. Everything is very organized, clean, staff very friendly...breakfest amazing..if someone like to "smoke" must be outside, which is nice, however, if you do not like kids and old people run away there.Overall it is worth!!

Room Tip: To be honest all the rooms is the same!!

Nice and clean accommodations. Will definitely go back here for my next visit to the Netherlands. Only thing i really missed, was the use of functional WiFi in the common area during my stay. It seems like it was either completely congested or just poor quality as I couldn't send or receive mails / messages. Otherwise, excellent!

2 friends and I stayed in the Stayokay Vondelpark for 2 night while in Amsterdam for a football match.
since we were only in amsterdam for a few days we were only looking for somewhere cheap with a good central location and the Stayokay definitely fits the bill.
we opted to stay in one of the smaller rooms (4 people, 2 bunk beds) which we managed to get to ourselves.
the room was small but cosy and exactly what we were looking for for our purposes.
the room was clean with seperate lockers for each person.
the hostel is only 10 minutes walk into the centre of amsterdam so ideal if you are looking to explore the city.
the bar was great with lots of different people from around the world mingling and having fun. definitely try to catch the happy hour for 2 for 1 drinks!!
ideal for a cheap and cheerful visit to the city when with friends, if i was with my fiancee i would splash out for something more private i.e. hotel

Room Tip: remember and bring a padlock for your personal locker in your room.

3 of us stayed here while on a football trip to Amsterdam and had booked a room for 4 but we had it to ourselves. The location is ideal for all Amsterdam has to offer with everything being within walking distance and the hostel also rent out bikes if that's up your street. Dam Square is about 15 minutes walk and there are bars and restaurants at the end of the street. The rooms are pretty much what you would expect, bunk beds, lockable wardrobe (you need a padlock), toilet and shower. The hostel supply bedding which you get on arrival and just make up your own bed and I have to say, they are pretty comfy. The bar in the hotel is quite good, it's also really busy and has a good atmosphere. They were selling pints of lager 2 for 1 on the night we arrived which was the cheapest we had paid during the whole trip. Couldn't comment on the breakfast as we ate out but there are vending machines at reception for water, juice and snacks. WiFi is available in the common areas.

Expensive rooms, long waits for breakfast, unpleasant staff...once checked out they didn't want to rent us bikes neither they allowed us to wait for the shuttle to the airport inside the building, they litterally threw us out of the hall despite the rain outside...
Definitely not my best experience ever.
