Stayokay Hostel Amsterdam Vondelpark
Ranked #23 of 248 Specialty Lodging in Amsterdam
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 21, 2014

Stayed 3 nights, 3 people in a 4 person ensuite
Pros
Room is spacious; shower & toilet are separate
Wide selection of cheese, cold meat, fruits etc. for breakfast
Staff were very friendly & helpful (I had an online interview one night and they offered me a quiet space to have the interview, plus internet was smooth!). Also allowed us to leave our larger luggage for 2 nights when we went to Belgium.
Good location -if you like walking, locations are within easy walking distances (especially since Holland's so flat).

Cons
Internet only available in public areas, not in rooms (but the public areas were nice and comfy)

Stayed here with a friend at the end of January in a 4 bed mixed dorm. Reception staff were friendly enough. The room was actually slightly bigger than I thought it would be, judging by the pictures and the shower/toilet/sink were all very clean. Not having wifi in the room was a litlle annoying but didn't really matter. Tried the breakfast once, wasn't great to be honest.

Didn't really spend much time in the hostel but it was a nice place to be based. It was handy how the free walking tour started from the reception.

Would definitely stay here again if returning to Amsterdam however I would probably get a private room as sharing with two random people was a very slight inconveniencenat times.

I traveled with my friends to Amsterdam mid January 2014. They had already booked their rooms and I decided at a later point to join them. We tried to contact the hostel to get us in the same room but we got no response from them so when I booked my room we added this to the notes instead. In the end they were not able to arrange this for us so we ended up with 2 4 bed rooms between 3 people. So we were paying an excess which was quite annoying.

Aside from that the rooms themselves were pretty good. Bunk beds in each and reasonable en suite bathrooms which was nice as we didn't have to leave the room to find a bathroom. They give you a pack of bed linen to make your own bed.

The breakfast included was okay, although not a huge selection but enough to keep you going and teas and juices as well. We ate at the restaurant but I wouldn't recommend that.

Some of the staff were a bit funny with us, but some were very helpful so it was a bit hit and miss.

No wifi in the rooms which was really annoying and also one powerpoint in each room so it's difficult to charge your electronics!

You can't hire bikes once you've checked out, even though we left our bags in the lockers which is also a pain.

The location is amazing with all the attractions a short walk or tram ride away, and it feels safe here. Amsterdam in general is a fantastic place to visit and this works really well as a base. It was also really easy to find as they had lots of signs posting you the right way.

For what you pay (if you don't get the problem we had) it's value for money, as it is a hostel after all and works well as a place to crash but there are changes to be made...

Thank you for your review and ratings. We are happy to hear you had a good time staying with us. We also appreciate your feedback. We are aware of the limited outlets in the rooms. Therefore, you can charge your electronic devices at the reception. WiFi is only available in the common area, as we want to encourage people to come downstairs and meet fellow travelers. We will look into what happened with renting bikes after check out, as you should be able to just rent them. As for the room allocation, sorry for the inconvenience. We will make sure that this doesn't happen in the future. We hope you had a great time in Amsterdam! Frank, Stayokay Vondelpark

I was visiting Amsterdam for the first time and traveling in my own... Found the hostel online which was nice and cheap and fairly close to the centre. Nothing to complain about as i used it just to test my head during the night, would willingly use the hostel again... Thanks for the stay

I was few months ago in this hostel with friend.
The room was clean, but furnished in really minimal way. The bed are not very confortable and big, anyway the price and the good position of the hostel make Stayok a good solution for the travellers.

Common space are very nice, but maybe the staff should help you more to plan in best way your tripo in amsterdam. The entourage is not always kind with guests.

I've stayed at the Stayokay recently with my friends for 3 days, located in a quiet area of Amsterdam, near Vondelpark but basically a few minutes from the city centre, this hostel inside is modern, clean and nice. The staff are very helpful giving you any advise about the city. Only little cons is the price but if you are looking for a modern hostel you have find it!!

The good things were the free buffet breakfast (bread, cheese, boiled eggs, beverages), the location (Near Leidseplein, the museums and of course Vondelpark), the large lockers for your travel backpack..

The thing that annoyed me the most was that there were no power points in the bedrooms. You can have your phone safely charged overnight at reception, but if you use your phone as an alarm in the morning like I do it causes an inconvenience. I was always on the lookout for a power plug throughout the day to charge my phone a little when I could.

The bin in the toilet cubicle was overflowing for a few days, and it takes a bit of effort to bring your fresh clothes into the shower cubicle without them getting wet, but these were just small things.
