Stayokay Texel
Ranked #3 of 6 Hotels in Den Burg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 1, 2010

The hostel is located in Den Burg, the largest village on Texel Island. That makes it easy to get to from the ferry, and shops are nearby. Unfortunately, the beach is quite far, but there are regular buses.
The hostel is brand new, and rooms are very clean, and designed with an eye for detail (hangers in the shower, individual reading lights etc). Objectively speaking it has everything you'd want in a hostel: spacious rooms, clean and good showers, large common room, internet, easy to get to etc. But is has no charm - it looks extremely corporate, and mainly designed to house large groups of visitors (eg school groups). Breakfast is OK, but without inspiration. Also, and I frequently wondered about this, stayokay is relatively expensive - how comes a hostel in the Netherlands is considerably more expensive than those in an expensive country such as Switzerland.

If you plan on visiting Texel for 1 or 2 days, it is a good option. If you plan to stay longer, try booking a holiday cottage somewhere else. But it does look like a good place to stay for families with small children.

Hi,

Thank you for making time already so long ago from now to write us a review. Although it is 7 years later we would still like to give a response. Cause it might have taken some time, but now there is definitely charm. At least, we hope so. In case you will ever pay Texel a visit again, please have a look. We are looking forward to welcome you again.

Warm regards, Team Stayokay Texel
