Very strict environment. No alcohol allowed in the rooms. One staff member told us we could drink at the bar on site or in the lobby. (You can only drink at the on site bar when opened). Night time staff chastised us for drinking in lobby. Poor environment for meeting others, lounge areas are not conducive towards this. Not recommended for the solo traveller. During our stay, there were older guests (in their 40s with teenagers). Upside, clean & quiet hostel if that is what you're searching for.

The facilities would have been excellent if they had fridges in the lounge and more outlets in the bedrooms/general areas. It has an amazing location and very clean facilities. The lockers were outside of the bedrooms which made it easier to leave in the morning without disturbing others.

Great hostel in the middle of town. Perfect location. Spent three great nights there and loved it. If I go back to amsterdam this will be where I am staying

The hostel location is very central to everything, staff is very friendly and approachable. We asked them to book a taxi to the airport and they were more than happy to help. My friend and I stayed in a 20 person room and there were no problems. Make sure ot leave all your valuables in the locker!

Lockers espaciosos, casi todo el personal es muy amable (casi), desayuno muy bueno y variado, el ambiente no tan bueno, 1 solo conector por habitación en habitaciones de 18 camas!?? Mal!!, en si el hostel necesita una renovación, un poco descuidado.

Nao ter tomada no quarto em pleno seculo XXI é o maior absurdo que ja vi. Localização perfeita, seguro e cafe da manha muito bom.

Good location, decent enough staff but the toilets were gross. Very basic room set up. Not a bad place to stay.

I had a great stay. The hostel worked hard to accommodate me last minute and I was able to secure a couple more nights at the front desk. Having a washing machine, breakfast, bike storage, and a bar, this place has it all. Only thing worth mentioning is that because there is the bar in the back and an area out front, it can be hard to rally strangers to go on trips, as there is no "one place to congregate". That's a pretty shallow complaint, I still managed to find people to hang out with.

Hi and thanks for your review, glad to know you had a god stay with us!!!

Booked last minute at the height of summer season. It's walking distance to most attractions. B'fast selection standard/average but alright. After experiencing a 4-person dorm in Portugal which costs less than Stayokay per night, & had not 1 but 4 (!!!) powerpoints for each of the guests, the powerpoint situation needs improving & urgent attention at Stayokay. Saw so many guests unplugging wall lamps & charging their phones during breakfast in the bar! Wish there was free luggage storage option!

Thanks for your review, glad to know you liked our location and Breakfast! We are currently working on improving the powerpoint situation, hopefully there will be a personal socket for each bed in the very near future!!! Kind regards

Great location and nice views over the city in a historic classically Dutch building. However it was pretty expensive for a 20 bed dorm which was constantly noisy, and although you get your first drink at the bar half price the atmosphere wasn't great, we found it hard to meet other travellers.

Esta muy bien ubicado y el desayuno es muy bueno, pero no tienen para cargar tu celular en la habitacion. tienes que ir al lobby o al bar... y es bastan te caro para compartir habutacion con 20 personal

The hostel is okay. The staff is very good. About the bedroom I think it could be clean often and there are not enough wall socket in the room. I needed to charge my cellphone in the reception. The shower it is okay and the bar it's amazing. The breakfast included is good.

Hello, we clean the hostel everyday all day long, so maybe it were some other people in the room?...As a solution for the few sockets we have in the hostel you can charge all your devices at the reception. I'm happy the rest was great and you enjoyed Amsterdam after a awesome breakfast in the hostel. Have a nice day and visit us again;) See ya

El hostal esta en una ubicacion perfecta. Cerca de las 9 calles, la Damm Place y el barrio Rojo. El desayuno esta incluido en la estancia y esta bastante bien. Las habitaciones eran buenas con literas con pared en un lado que daban intimidad dentro de lo posible. El servicio muy bueno, agradables y siempre dispuestos a ayudar. Lo unico que en la habitacion solo hay un enchife y para cargar los Moviles nos teniamos que ir a recepcion o hasta al baño. Pero lo recomiendo muchisimo.

I am sad that someone stole my smartphone charger directly from the only one socket inin room B. Also my towel (cost 15€) has been stolen directly from the towel rail in front the room. Anyway it was a great time in hostel.

Aiii that's not a good thing. For safety you can charge your devices behind the reception, this is also a solution for the few plugs we have in the rooms. I hope you asked the reception about your towel and they could helped you with the policereport for your stolen smartphone. Although your experience of all this i'm glad you still had a great time over here. Regards!

La relación calidad precio es malisima, es un buen hostal, pero no deberia costar tanto, lo mas rescatable fue el desayuno que ya venía incluido.

Tratamos de precio en Ámsterdam caro de mantener lo más bajo posible . Lástima que no funcionó bien para usted. Está bien que usted ha tenido un buen tiempo aquí y ha contado con el desayuno.

the only issue with this hostel is that there are not enough plugs in the rooms. Our room had two plugs for a 20 bed dorm. Other than that, there were no issues. The lockers were big enough to store our huge back packs, free breakfast, good location, and nice shower facilities.

Hi there, We don't have personal plugs here, for those we have a powerplant behind the reception. i hope you found it and met a lot of people and enjoyed Amsterdam together. We see you next time;) Have a nice day!

Great location, close to everything. Good hostel for younger groups, not the best for solo travellers or pairs looking to meet people. Gets loud In the area at night, so be prepared. If looking to party this is a hostel that is close to nightlife.

Hi there, Thanks for the information! It's only strange that it was loud because we are next to the quite Vondelpark, maybe there was a incident. I still hope you had a good nightsrest;). Please visit us again! Best regards,

Pretty good hostel, the common room is lovely and a great place to meet people, important things to note is there is only 1 plug to a 20 bed dorm and there was sick in the toilet but what do you expect! Really good location and very popular!!
