“Excelent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

I was at Amsterdam to enjoy my vacation and the city as a backpacker. The hostel was perfect! It is not so far from the downtown (train station around) and in a very calm and silent neighbourhood. As Marijuana is allowed in Amsterdam, it was ver important the hostel is non-smokers. The bathroom ins in the room, very clean and there are inviduals lights in the beds. The breakfast is very completed and you find many things (soap, battery, water, umbrella, etc) for a low price. I strongly recommend this hostel

Very good hostel in calm area about 10 minutes by bicycle. I rented the bicycle in the hostel. Near the hostel are bus and tram stops. The hostel is huge, with big reception, in the historical bilding. There are many groups stay in hostel. The bathroom and toilet in every room, very comfortable, rooms and bed linen are clean. The breakfast is included, good healthy breakfast buffet style. I Highly recommend this hostel for people who like to live in respectful area.

Rooms are spacious, neat and tidy. Great cheap bar & friendly staff made our stay very good fun. Was very clean & good value for the money. Nice and quiet neighbourhood. Tram and bus stain is right outside the hostel. The only thing that bugged me was the shower - it's a push button shower that stays running for about 10 seconds.

We stayed here 2-4 may & had an amazing time. Good cheap bar & friendly staff made our stay very good fun. Was very clean & good value for the money. Need to get tram into city but one of out friends did walk home one night. Also zen bar just round the corner was excellent. A taxi from here into the city costs about 20 euros.

Feel lucky to choose this hostel which is far from the bustling city centre. The neighborhood is nice and quiet, but with convenient facilities. The tram and bus stations are just beside the door. Breakfast is good with sandwich packages, so you can save the rest for lunch, too. The rooms are spacious and with female dorm, and the staff are friendly and helpful. An enjoyable experience in Amsterdam!

Room Tip: Breakfast time can be very busy. Ask for female-only dorm if necessary.

We knew this hostel was not close to the city centre but we booked it because it was the only reasonably priced one available for our dates. In actuality, it was very far from the city centre (40 min walk) and if we factor in the price of the public transportation pass, it was probably more expensive than hostels closer to the city centre. There were no in-room lockers and the only ones offered were paying lockers. Check-in was fast and the staff at the reception were okay. They did not offer free maps however and we had to pay for a map of the city. We were there during King's Day and public transportation to the city centre was suspended for the day. We did not know this and bought the day pass from the reception. The receptionist should have told us that we would not need it but she did not. For the first two nights we were there, there was a huge group (possibly a whole school) of kids who were very noisy early in the morning and late at night. Breakfast in the morning was horrible and we had to wait 25 minutes in line because it was too crowded. The quality of the breakfast was comparable to what you find in most hostels. The room was decent but the mattresses (they should not even be called mattresses) were very uncomfortable. They looked like what you bring out when you have guests staying over for 1 night. There were no fitted sheets so we had to use flat sheets instead. The duvets were very dirty and had obviously never been washed. There was no soap in the room but we already knew about it so we brought our own soap. There was no wifi in the rooms and even in the lobby, it was spotty at best.

The shower was the kind of shower that you find in gyms (the kind that shut off after 10 seconds) and it was not clean. The room itself was okay but could have been cleaner. Overall, we would definitely not come back to the Stayokay Zeeburg.

A girl in my hall began having a seizure, so I ran down to the front desk to ask them for a doctor or to call for paramedics. Instead they asked me if I had a group leader, and to let him know what was happening. They just stared at me and wouldn't call or offer any help to the girl that was obviously in need of medical care. I didn't even know this girl, but it shouldn't matter who she is! She needed help and the staff didn't even care. Terrible experience.
