“Great hostel, cheap price, decent location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

I stayed here for 2 nights in July '12 with three friends. The staff are friendly, the rooms are spotless and breakfast (included) is great. It is a little out of the way by foot, however the #14 tram stops almost outside of the door and takes you directly to Dam Square within 10 minutes - ideal if you don't want to stay in the hustle and bustle of the city centre. I can't really fault the hostel at all, if I'm nit picking I'd say the pillows could have been better and it was slightly noisy one night due to a group of girls staying just down the corridor from us, however these are very minor details and didn't spoil our stay one bit. I'd highly recommend Stayokay Zeeburg and plan to stay here again.

We decided to stay in this hostel as it was the only option with OK price and above average review during the time I visited Amsterdam (Remembrance Day and Liberation Day).

Location: It is quite far from Amsterdam Central station. You have to take tram no.9 & no.14 with total 11 stops to reach at Zeeburg. The Zeeburg tram stop is near to hostel. Other than that, there is nothing much around the hostel. And note that on Sunday, first tram start late in the morning. So plan well if you need to catch early train at the central station.

Hostel: Overall the common area and room are clean. Everything looks new.

Room: Room is clean but due to it's price and it is a youth hostel, there is no room service. So expect to make the bed yourself daily. Besides, the bathroom layout is weird with a divider at the middle. Shower automatically off after like 10-15 secs (I guess to save water?) which is very inconvenient. You have to keep pressing the button every 10 sec to keep it on. No shampoo and towel provided. No internet in the room too, which is rather disappointing.

If you are on tight budget and no room available in down town, then only you may consider this hostel. Personally, I will not stay in this hostel again.

I stayed here twice: Once with two friends of mine, and then in a group of six. Both stays were definetely okay. The rooms were clean and quiet. As there are six beds in (i think) all of the rooms, this was the perfect place for us when we travelled in a group of six. It may be a bit far from the tourist center, but Amsterdam isn't that huge... you can get downtown by foot, tram and bike pretty easy.

We stayed in this hostel 3 nights in April 2012. The staff was very friendly and helpfull with check in, information about the city, attractions and they also sold tickets for museums and public transportation. Some tickets were cheaper than at the museum itself.
Yes, the corridor/doors were more noisy than we needed, but its a hostel...

The included breakfast was just awesome and a perfect start in the day.
Everything we needed and it tasted really good.

Our room, we were two and didnt have to share our room with anybody else, was clean and simple furnitured. We can definitively recommend this hostel.

We would stay here again.

I stayed here for three nights in October 2011 as the last place on inter rail. We arrived much later than scheduled due to rail delays in Germany (yes they happen over there too!)

First impressions were quite favourable however the room was a bit cold despite the weather being warm outside. The room-mates were decent enough all three nights. Rooms were six in sets of three bunks.

Breakfast was definitely the best of the offerings on the trip but other aspects let the hostel down. Although from our room the bar noise was faint, I wouldn't have liked to be in a room directly above the bar.

The location was OK, nothing spectacular, one tram ride away from the Damrak but quite a few stops. There were a few takeaways nearby but not many bars or clubs.

I would stay here again on very cheap rates like I paid this time, but would also be willing to spend a little more for a cheap hotel in Amsterdam.

We stayed with our 3 children in a 6-bed family room. Room was clean, good beds, although the pillows were of bad quality. Breakfast was okay, but feeling in a school refectory. Nothing charming.
Tray to avoid a room in a corridor where also groups, schools, .. are staying as they make lot of noise in the evening. The receptoin should separate levels for groups and levels for families and other travellers.

i travelled with 5 girls to amsterdam and we were all stunned to see how big, clean and friendly this hostel was. we shared a room with 3 sets of bunkbeds. the room was clean and we felt we had plenty of room! the shower works by pushing a button on the wall, tho this only lasts about 20 seconds, so theres alot of button pushing..... saying that i have no other fault with this place. the breakfast is cereal, bread, toast, meats and eggs with unlimited tea and coffee. superb value for money!!! would defo stay here again.. its only 10mins away from amsterdam central on the tram which you catch outside the hostel.. you can get a 4 day tram card for 19 euros from the hostel...
