The only downside is that there is no kitchen, refrigerator or even any any way to boil water for tea.

free breakfast was really good and great location right at vondelpark. zero atmosphere though. maybe because it was off season but there was hardly anyone in the bar and people in the lobby were just there silently charging their phones. wifi didn't reach bedroom.

Upon first arriving I was "greeted" by a woman on the reception who gave me the impression I was inconveniencing her, I had to go away for hour and come back when I had calmed down, noticed the same attitude to other people while around the lobby, so wasn't just myself, not good. Seemed like a place for kids, on the upside was clean, had to make your own bed, sheets were provided in a sealed plastic bag, showers were tempremental, hot minute cold the next. for the price charged was reasonable.

Great hostel! Very big common room, awesome hostel bar, rooms were great, lockers in the room, everything was clean, breakfast was fantastic! I really liked this hostel. You can rent bikes for 24 hours, which I loved. I really, really liked this hostel and would definitely recommend it. The ONLY thing I didn't like was no wifi in the rooms :( but good wifi in the common room! The location of the hostel is also perfect.

Everything was great except Mike (cleaner/bike loans person). The lights on my bike wasn't working so I had to see him. When I told him about the broken lights , he said "this is why you called me?". I couldn't believe how rude and impatient he was. I explained to him that the lights are for my and others safety. But he maintained that the streets are well lit so bike lights are not important. Obviously he does not understand what bike lights are for.

Good hostel, very big so not much atmosphere. Rooms cleaned daily. Separate toilet and shower. Individual reading lights, big lockers. Only problem is not many electrical sockets. Hostel has bar, laundry, excellent breakfast. Close to tram and shopping area. About 30 min walk or 5 min tram to central station.

Breakfast was great. Only thing missing was wi-fi in the room.

Thank you for your review and ratings. We are happy to hear you loved our breakfast. We always try to provide our guest with the best service possible. Wifi is available in the common area. This is to encourage people to come to the lobby and bar to meet fellow travelers and share experiences and stories. Frank, Stayokay Vondelpark

I would say overall the atmosphere really sucked because everyone kind of kept to themselves and weren't very friendly. I just so happen to have a great personallty so it did not take me very long to meet some friends and go pub crawling later that night which was fun. I myself found it very weird that no one in the hostel was approachable? all in all for the money it was worth it I suppose althouhg most local hostels there offer free breakfast and that one did not. Bring a lock!

Thank you for your review and ratings. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and met some new people. We are sorry to hear that no everyone was approachable. We understand that as a traveler that can be annoying. The breakfast in our hostel is complementary and thus for free as well. Safe travels! Frank, Stayokay Vondelpark

Even though I had a correspondence with the hostel saying that I'll be coming with my girlfriend,the room we got has a bunk bed.Luckily,there was one with two single beds.We switched to that,but the room smells cigarettes, heavily.At night a lovely surprise!Heater went off exactly at 12 a.m in both nights.We literally froze. Told this to the staff, they told me that heater works 24/7 and we should have called the night guard. Well, you shouldn't have caused this trouble at the first place!

Even though it is about 20 minutes to Dam square I love the location! Vondelpark is so beautiful and it's wonderful to start your day with a walk there! Hostel is not noisy at night and the breakfast was great! Overall, excellent value for money!
