Had a lovely family room overlooking the park, the beds were extremely comfortable, we all had the best nights sleep. The reception staff were fabulous, very friendly & helpful. Breakfast was super too, such a good variety of foods available. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay & will definitely use Stayokay again. Thank you for being wonderful :-)

This hostels amenities were unbelievable! The rooms were new, clean, and fully stocked with lockers, a shower and a washroom. Breakfast was delicious and had many options. The atmosphere was okay, if I had not befriended my roommates I probably would've been alone. The staff are mediocre, met some nice ones but most are rude and make you seem like you're pestering them. Location is good, close to the park and quiet! Would definitely recommend
This was a great hostel. It had a great location as the tram/bus lines were only a 3-5 minute walk. The breakfasts were amazing. Best I've ever had in a hostel. The staff were very friendly and always willing to help. The rooms were quite spacious with a bathroom attached (I was in a 12 bed mixed dorm with 2 showers and a toilet). The only downsides were the lack of plug-ins (seems to be a general theme at hostels) and the wi-fi was terrible. I wouldstil recommend this hostel to anyone!
Location was excellent, and the rooms were spacious and clean. The rooms definitely need more outlets or a powerstrip to allow all guests to charge their devices. Some separation of families and young adult travelers would also be nice in order to avoid being woken up at 7am by a screaming baby the morning after a pub crawl. Otherwise, I thought it was a very nice hostel, and one that I would consider staying at again for the location and convenience to public transportation.
Great hostel! Almost felt like a hotel. The shower, bathroom, and sink in the room were separate which was great. Wifi in the lobby didn't really work for us and walking up stairs to get to the top floor really kicked our ass after a long day of walking, but other than that I would highly recommend this hostel. The free breakfast was also the best I've had in a hostel yet.
It was a normal, fine hostel. Clean.. you can meet others if you really put yourself out there. Just an average hostel. It's kind of tucked away in an alley but very close to Leidseplein which is nice.

We had a great time at stayokay. It is located in vondel park, which was awesome. Everything is within walking distance/ even quicker when you hire a bike. The breakfast buffet was awesome. Not a party hostel, but very comfortable and accessible

Staff were really helpfull stored our huge bags as were moving back to AUS from the U.K and had good lockers in the room breakfast was real good as well. I also love walking through the park everyday
I was pleasantly surprised by the hostel. The faculty was great and very accommodating. After a little mistake with our reservations, they made a couple changes and were very helpful. The food and drinks are also really good there with great music. The only annoying thing was that the wifi was a little spotty when a lot of people were around, especially down by the front desk. But the hostel itself has a nice location, nothing is too far to walk to.
This was a decent hostel in a good neighborhood. If you're a bit younger and enjoy the college dorm vibe with group hangout areas, then this will be a good spot. For me it resonated a bit too much like a hostel chain that tries to yell about how cool they are. With that said, it was a comfortable place to sleep.
Stayok was a good choice for my stay in Amsterdam. The location is excellent, it's possible to visit all main turistic points on foot. Staff is very kind and helpful. The bar has good options for drink and also some options of meals. Snack machines is also a facility that makes difference. It's strongly recommended!!!
An overall great stay. It's the only place in Amsterdam I've stayed at so can't compare. The breakfast was good, quick and well chosen. The addition of bananas would have been great with the delicious apples. My only frustration with the hostel was lack of wall chargers by our beds. There are individual lights, which was excellent, however if StayOK could look at attaching sockets to these lights, it would make the stay more than OK! Good up the good work.
Clean hostel in a good location. It is huge and very hotel like so not a great place for solo travellers to meet people. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall a nice stay.
The breakfast was particularly great! The best I have had in a hostel! The rooms are spacious and the individual lights over the beds are really a good idea. I would stay again, and definitely recommend it.
Dorm rooms have their own shower and toilet facilities but no hand soap-why not?
Nice hostel and quiet location tucked away in an alley off Vondelpark. Awesome breakfast each morning! Wasn't a great place to meet people though as there seemed to be many high school aged kids staying there on a class trip or something.
Nice hostel with a great location. Quite big and a typical HI flair but reasonable priced and a good breakfast is included.
Bit outside the thick of things but personally I enjoyed being sway from the hustle and bustle after I was done with it. Short walking distance to the heart of the city, even closer to the fantastic museums, and right next to a gorgeous park. Great rooms and friendly, cool staff as well. Not as many people seemed to hang and chill out at the hostel so not the most social experience. Than again, it's Amsterdam. No one goes to Amsterdam too hang out at their hostel;)
Awesome hostel! Modern, clean, secure, great location. This place felt like a resort. Great bang for your buck. Would definitely return!
Very big hostel but everything worked very smoothly; it's certainly a well run "machine"! If you are looking for a cosy, family-feel hostel this is not it, but the location is perfect, very clean, great facilities, tons of information, good breakfast and very good wifi. Expensive for a hostel (but probably not compared to Amsterdam standards).
