We stopped for lunch and each enjoyed a sandwich. My husband enjoyed his vegetarian panini and I enjoyed a carpaccio sandwich. My hazelnut latte was lackluster though- most likely made from a quick brew machine (think Wawa or 7-11).

Stayed: September 2012, traveled as a couple

I really liked this hostel and it was a good price. The staff were friendly, breakfast was good and the rooms and bathrooms were clean - not a lot more you could ask for! The lockers were a decent size - you can take a padlock or buy one for not a lot of money. It was in an excellent location within the city, next to the red light district, but out of the main area so it was quiet enough to sleep with windows open.
Would definitely recommend this.

It is really close to Rembrandtplein Square.15 minutes by walking from.the Dam Square.
A good place to meet new people.
Perhaps too many people in a room.I was with 9 other girls.Rooms are clean and bathrooms too during the day but not in night.
The price is almost the same in every B&B in Amsterdam.
You can eat whatever you want in breakfast:-) it is really good.

Amsterdam is not Berlin, so don't expect hostels to be like Circus or Wombats hostels. By Amsterdams standards Stayok is the best option, even better than famous Flying pig in my opinion.
The rooms are spacious, there are no tricky stairs like in Amigo hostel ( which is so tiny and steep that looks more like an aticus than a hostel) . The crew is great specially a blond girl whose name I ca not remember.
Breakfast is terrible though, really lame! Location is ok! By far the best option in Amsterdam, we been arround and visited many of the well known hostels to find a room (Bobs not nice atmosphere, Flying pig eigther)

The Hostel is in a good central location right on one of the Canals. Short walk to the Red Light District, Dam Square, Damrak Street, restaurants and pubs, with an English book exchange over the road. Breakfast is reasonable, rooms are large, staff are friendly and knowledgable. I would recommend this hostel.
the showers and toilets are very small though, but apart from that a good stay

This place is ok if you have nowhere else to stay and doing Amsterdam relatively cheaply. Sad though that on our second morning I got told off for putting a teacake in the toasting machine, yes told off. Very rude bearded man who obviously hated working in a hostel. I'm 32 and don't need to be spoken to like a child. My advice, don't serve teacakes if you're not allowed to toast them.

good location. easy to walk from centraal st. nice breakfast avai. staff were fine. rooms and bathroom areas pretty clean. safe and secure as YHA's are. look after yourself esp in the red light district (turn right out of hostel about 10min walk north from the hostel) or turn left from hostel and find an area of shops and cafes (over the bridge and across the rd).
