Stayokay Hostel Amsterdam Zeeburg

This hostel exceeded expectation. We had planned to stay in the more central Stakokay hostel but as there was no room availability we settled on Zeeburg. Yes the hostel is located out of the centre of Amsterdam but it is walkable (we walked in and out on the first day 15mins each way) but you can get a tram ticket from the hostel for either 24 or 48hrs (the 24hr one cost 7 euro) and the number 14 tram takes you in and out and is straightforward to use. The room was clean and comfortable and both toilet and shower facilities were very clean and the shower hot.

The highlight of the stay was the breakfast each morning. Choice of cereal: granola or cornflakes, bowls of natural yogurt, boiled eggs, a selection of meats and cheese, ORGANIC fresh bread (brown and white), bonne maman jam, coffee, orange juice and apples/oranges. We didn't dine in the evening but the food also looked good.

The staff were very friendly and helpful.

All in all, great value and comfortable stay!!!!!!!

Very nice hostel. Staff is very friendly! Location is great! We stayed with two young kids! Kids enjoyed staying as well as us! Reception service was just great as well as room and breakfast! Very custom oriented and very polite staff! We will definitely recommend this hostel to all of our friends and will come back whenever we have chance!

Good, low budget hostel. Free breakfast was good quality though no hot food and not a great deal of choice.

e.g. white/brown organic bread, jam, selection of cheeses/ham, cornflakes, yogurt and boiled eggs.

Rooms were clean, tidy, though you have to make your own bed. Also the lights in the toilet go out every minute which is a pain. The toilet/bathroom facilities are not great.

Be warned the hostel is far out and a good 40 minute walk to any of the major attractions. You must be comfortable with public transport. The trams leave near by and are fairly cheap. I recommend 'iam amsterdam card'.

Stayed here for a weekend in Feb. Booked a private double which actually turned out to be a 6 person room all to ourselves. This was great because it was spacious and the bathroom/shower are good. The staff were all extremely friendly and willing to help. Breakfast is also good. It's easy to get to town on the tram/nightbusses and takes about 10 mins, no problem (You can get a 48 hour pass for all of the public transport for about 12euros, bargain). Highly recommended and great value for money.

We got this dorm for very cheap so I've a cheek to put average really but it wasn't the best place I've stayed in for that price.

The dorms were typical dorms so you get what you pay for but the cost of a taxi to get from here to the City Centre probably outweighed the point in getting a cheap room in the end.

I'd probably stay more central next time for more money. That said if you're looking to stay in the area this is a typical backpackers hostel.

Clean, quiet, really close to tram stop. Breakfast good but careful not to clear your plate into the wrong container or you will get yelled at! Gave us the wrong room, so instead of a cozy double like I had booked, we got a prison like dorm with 4 bunk beds. Shower was like an exercise, you have to keep moving vigourously or the light goes out haha. Was told by the evening staff at reception it wasn't their problem. Nice. Day staff were fab though, and really informative! PS steer clear clear of the brown bar at the end of the road...
