I stayed 4 nights in November and the hostel was warm despite it being cold and windy outside. Not my first visit and I would return again. Staff very helpful and friendly. Good bar.
Although rather dated the hostel remains very clean. Lockers in room - you provide your own padlock. Excellent breakfasts, fresh produce, self-service with good orange juice and coffee. Pleasant location backing onto a park. Bird-spotting an added treat.
Frequent buses to/from Haarlem station (Route 2) stop outside (bus stop 'Stayokay') and run until just after midnight. Half-hourly trains to and from Santpoort Suid (take subway between hostel and the canal, go under the main road then just follow the canal to the train station less than 10 min walk) will take you to Haarlem (2 short stops) or Amsterdam, a further 15mins journey on the same train. Or you can go north and connect with line to Alkmaar.
A very good base from which to visit Haarlem (bus 300 from Schiphol), a lovely small city with much to offer the visitor in terms of shopping and good cafes, bars and restaurants. Very handy for the bulbfields in springtime.
