“It was ok, but I would think about it before going again with friends”
Reviewed May 20, 2011

First of all, the hostel is clean and well furnished. Everyone is nice and helpfull, and the breakfast is ok. It looks well as you enter and the rooms are nice, at your first glance.
Maybe if the price was 30 euros per night, I would be happy with it... But since it was queen's day, some of the nights were really expensive, so I am not happy with what I found. The floor is basic...does not have a carpet, or....The beds were not that comfy, and the shower was a disaster. You had to push a button every 20 seconds to get water, and even if that was not so bad when you took a shower, it was awful when you had to wash your hair. I do understand that there is a green policy, but....Not that way. It was close to tram station and bus station, so you could get pretty fast to the city center, and if you were in doubt about anything you could always ask at the reception.
I would recommend it to a group of young friends, not recommend it to a family with children...

The Stayokay brand could be the future of hostelling across Europe. Gone are the cramped rooms and shabby decor of the traditional hostel, and in their place are spacious apartment style rooms and an excellent Orange colour scheme. The initial welcome was very professional and friendly. Breakfast was excellent, though you need to get down there before 8am or be faced with hellishly long queues. My only slight caveat would be that travellers with children will find that it doesn't cater for the under 20 market, but as the student/backpacker market is very lucrative it is understandable.
If you want great value and a good experience then search out the Orange themed hostel throughout Holland. If it decides to expand, the old Youth Hostel will be an endangered species!!

Stayed here as part of a 5 day cricket tour with 15 people. The rooms are very basic (We was told all breakages would be paid for but there is literally nothing you can break!!) but for the price you cant go wrong.

The only thing to say is that there is a lot of young people about in the hotel so try and be respectful there.

Having never stayed in a hostel before I had no idea what to expect, with the general aura of them being dingy rooms with bunks that you'll spend with knife-wielding strangers. However, upon arrival we were instantly greeted with a clean and friendly atmosphere, the hostel was kept spotless and the all the rooms were huge, with great shower and bathroom facilities. The bar was very lively and had cheap prices, I'd certainly come stay here again if I visit Amsterdam again!

The building is very big with very high ceilings everywhere, also in the rooms. The room was large and very clean; you had to make your own bed but the sheets were wrapped so definitely clean. Felt safe as well. Only downside was a humming noise in the room but I slept through it. And roommates that stay up late with the lights on.

Nice breakfast; not too much choice but enough (bread, muesli, clementines, yoghurt..).
A good place to stay for a few nights.

Friendly staff. Internet was quite expensive though.
The environment was about a 30 min walk from the centre, with a bus stop not far away. Not much to do nearby but a quiet area.

We stayed here for two nights while we were in Amsterdam. It wasn't a good place to meet other people to chat to; the whole place was very big and impersonal. The rooms were comfortable enough, with spacious bunk beds, en suite facilities and a light and power socket for each bed (under the light), plus a couple extra. The breakfast was basic but ok for the price we paid overall. We would have preferred free or cheaper wireless, as other hostels of the same price or cheaper have offered this. The biggest disadvantage of the hostel is its location - tram 14 takes you into the centre but public transport is expensive in Amsterdam and I'd rather have walked, and the area didn't seem all that nice.
