Limited outlets for charging in each room and the wifi was occasionally out. However, overall this was one of the best hostels I have stayed in. I would definitely recommend them!!

The staff was really nice and the breakfast was great. Hot milk and espresso was my favorite. The only thing I didn't care for was the homeless men laying around outside and Wifi only in lobby.

The rooms were very clean (and secure), the hostel staff was awesome and helpful, and breakfast was included and there was a nice variety. All in all, it's an ideal hostel. It's an easy walk from everything but a bit of a hassle to get to from the train station while trailing luggage.

Easy to find and access from the train station, yummy breakfast (ham, cheese, toasts, yogurt, BUT no hot chocolate), great info and reductions found in the lobby and the staff can answer many questions. Big lockers to fit big suitcases = good security. Could meet people easily too, especially in the big dorm room and at breakfast. If you're looking for a calm, but social hostel, book this one!

More power sockets would be useful. Perhaps add plug extensions to the room as people need to charge phones, iPads etc. People don't like to leave expensive items to charge outside of rooms where they are unsupervised.

Not a very social hostel, but the facilities were nice.

staff were very friendly and helpful. breakfast was good. only complaints would be that the key cards kept wiping so you kept getting locked out and not enough plugs per room.

Hello! Thank you for your response and rating. Good to hear that you liked our location, breakfast and the lockers. We actually try to keep the male, who are travelling alone or with guy friends, in only male dorms. The mixed are more for couples. Kind Regards, Stayokay Stadsdoelen

Power outlets at bed. No wifi in rooms. Atmosphere was sterile...no easy supportive social setting. Felt very safe and lockers were excellent. Dorms clean with comfortable beds. Knowledgable staff. Excellent breakfast. Dorm showers fairly clean.

Very nice, clean hostel with great staff. Was hoping it would be more of a party hostel, but I would definitely stay here again regardless.

We were a bit worried that this hostel might be a bit rubbish because it's so much cheaper than the others in Amsterdam... Turns out it's a bargain! (I guess they can just keep it cheap because they're popular?) Location is great (5 mins from red light; 15 mins walk from main train station). Plenty of clean toilets and proper showers. Great breakfast included in price. Other reviews have complained about the lack of plug sockets - but if that's the biggest problem, it can't be bad, eh.
