Overall, okay place. Great location close to the attractions in town. However, not very clean and the toilets always smelled kind of funky. I slept next to the heater (it was literally along my wall) and was burned by it a couple of times. But, room was still cold. Simple but good breakfast. Cleaniness was the only issue - it seemed as thefacilities were never really cleaned.

Thank you for your review and ratings! We're happy to hear you like our location and breakfast. We are very proud to be located along the canals! We are sorry to hear about the heater. It's an old building so it's hard to keep it warm. But I'm sure we could have given you an other bed not close to the radiator. The facilities should be cleaned twice a day so we'll look into what happened as we consider cleanliness very important! Frank, Stayokay Stadsdoelen


LOCATION was the best - canal view right in the middle of the city. STAFF - 2 guys on duty the night I checked in were horrible & rude but the rest were nice and helpful. WIFI - would have been nice to have but is only in the common areas. ROOM was on the top floor-had to lug my luggage up with no help 3 floors-no lift/elevator! Liked all-female dorms. Pretty clean bathrooms and rooms overall. FACILITIES - wish there was at least a kettle to make tea. Nice basic breakfast in pretty room.


i think 20 people for one room is kinda a lot. and maybe plugs for rooms or lockers can be good idea.


It's a nice place to stay but if you're looking to meet some people there to party with, you better stay somewhere else. They don't have a kitchen or microwave; and if you need a place to storage your bags after your check out, they charge you for it.


Stayokay is an ok place. Staff is nice.

Great location right on the canal, terrific view out the breakfast room window - nice to wakeup to! Free breakfast was ok, nothing amazing but free so - great! Location was the big deal here, the room was fine, wifi was not great at all, pretty slow - but there are lots of places you can get free wifi around the city. Make sure you do the free walking tour, great way to see the city.

Thank you for your great review and ratings! We are happy to hear you liked our location along the canal. Wifi can indeed be a bit slow sometimes, but we are working on it! Frank, Stayokay Stadsdoelen
