This place will suffice if you need somewhere to stay. It is in a really good location in Amsterdam. It is not too clean and pretty old. The highlight of the place is the bar/lounge and location. However, please be aware that there are basically NO plugs. The lounge has a few but it closes early. When asking for access to electricity, I was rudely spoken to by the staff who seemed to care less. Like I said, this place is fine otherwise and we had a good experience.

Good Things - The hostel is in a very good location. The room was clean and also the shared bathrooms. The gentleman in the reception (a mature man with glasses) is very kind with very good attitude to support the guests Neutral - None Bad Things - The building is too old and the room needs some improvements. The WiFi is only available near the reception. There is a guy in the staff very rude acting like if he were doing me a favor

Stayokay Hostel is very good with a excelent location, but there were a lot of people in the same bedroom and the bathroom is outside of the bedroom, this is the only negative aspect.

Definitely feels a little like a prison with steel beds, but not a bad hostel overall. Very close to all the major attractions, and the free breakfast is pretty good. Wi-fi is slow in the rooms, and there are no individual power plugs.

Awesome hostel experience! The local is absolutely perfect, right on a canal and walking distance from everything in the city. The staff was helpful and the rooms were pretty standard and very clean/secure.

The place to take shower was really bad. Too small to get change and the water stops on the floor mixed with water from the other showers. Inside looks like a old hospital/prison something like that. There is not plugs inside the room, so you have to live your phone charging in other room. Internet doest work well inside the room.

That was a good experience to stay at that place. Everything was clean, rooms and showers, perfect breakfast and good location. Don't forget to bring your own hairdryer, padlock and towel, otherwise you have to pay to hire it. One more thing - you are not allowed to leave you luggage before checking in, but 20 cents per hour is not a big deal. Thank you for staying, that was a big pleasure:)

First stop on our Europe trip, although we were very happy at the time of our stay, in comparison with other hostels we've now experienced, the lack of atmosphere and friendliness was no where near as enthusiastic as we've found other places!

Only negatives would be that they don't have towels for rent, only for sale for €4.50 each, wifi doesn't work in the rooms, and there aren't nearly enough plugs to charge your electronics in the dorms. Other than that, everything was perfect. Definitely worth the price.

I had a great stay with my friends. The hotel is really close to downtown, which is awsome. The staff was very welcoming. We had no problem with the rooms and the beds (clean sheets, confortable beds, a good pillow ;) ). The hotel as a few floors with pairs of rooms and on the same floor bathrooms and showers (useful).

If you are looking to meet other travellers this hostel is not ideal, we visited on a weekend and the majority of other people staying at the hostel were large (and rowdy) groups of British men there for stag parties. There was also no guest kitchen, one outlet in a 20 bed room, no WiFi in our room, and the lockers were inconveniently located in the hallway outside the dorm rooms. However the hostel is centrally located, clean, the staff is generally helpful and the free breakfast is decent.

Great location and good sleeping accommodations, not much of a lounge/meeting place for fellow travelers though. Breakfast was decent as well.

Breakfast was good

Great location for exploring the heart of the city! The staff were very accommodating and helped answer our many questions. The only downside I can think of is the lockers are located outside of the dorm room which can be a bit inconvenient.

I stayed in a 20 bed female dorm. It was full for Kings' Day and only had two outlets for all of us. The lockers were in the hallway which was good because it let the room be quiet without packing and changing going on. The facilities were clean but not very nice. The breakfast was good but ended at 9:30am. Amsterdam is an expensive city to stay in and this hostel was no exception - book for weeknights, they're a huge amount more on weekends.

It isn't clean enough. The room didn't have enough light and NO plugs/wall sockets. Excellent location. Good breakfast.
