Really great location, breakfast is actually worth it only downfalls: wifi only works in the lounge and the bathrooms needed a better cleaning

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thanks for the great comments and we will keep an eye on the bathrooms. You can always come to reception to request some extra cleaning if needed, so we can solve any issue immediately.

A double bed would have been nice for the private room but besides that it was pretty good.The staff are really nice and helpful and it was in a really good location

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi there thanks for your great rating even though you did not have a double bed. Our private rooms sometimes have a bunk bed and sometimes two single beds which we/you could shove together. It's always possible to e-mail us to request to have 2 single beds put together. Depending upon availability we can arrange this. Thanks for the compliments on our staff and location !

Probably the worst hostel I've stayed in, it was very loud, there were at least 10 different school groups shuffling in and out of the lobby and living areas throughout my stay. It was good for 1-2 nights, but not for stays longer than 3 nights. I left and got a hotel room, that was much better.

The staff was incredibly helpful (except the night security staff which is my only complaint. They were very unhelpful and quick to hand off tasks, but the day staff was amazingly helpful and fun). Very clean and safe and close to everything! Perfect for our 3 day adventure with lots of resources to be utilized for things to do. And breakfast was delicious

Great place, very close to everything. Could do with a bit more sign posting, got a bit lost trying to find it. Also, may be a few more plugs in the rooms. But, overall, a lovely, comfy place with excellent facilities. May

Thank your very much for the compliments. Re the plugs, you can always charge stuff @ reception.

Pros: Location is good - very close to Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum. Sheets come in sealed plastic. Showers and bathrooms in dorm room. Breakfast is a bit above average: they provide a couple cereal and bread options along with the usual stuff. Cons: It's enormous, making it difficult to connect with people. WAY TOO expensive on the weekends, 40-plus euro. Rooms are a bit dark and many are at ground level. If you're a traveling college kid, this is the place for you.

Thanks about location. We are a large hostel but luckily divided into three buildings so it feels less big. We got rooms located on three different levels. In building A even four levels. Our pricing is comparable to similar properties in the area and we feel we provide good value given our central location and facilities. We regret that this was not your impression.

There is no plugs for each bed, which is very bad for hostels. Wifi not in the rooms is another negative topic. Breakfast very good with many options, very well located, staff very kinldy.

Owner Comment (Hide)
thanks for breakfast compliments, Wifi is only in the common area's at this moment. We realize there is not many plugs in the rooms, so too everybody: feel free to charge your electronic devices at reception (free of charge of course.)

I came with a few friends and we were surprised by the excellent quality of the hostel. As students, on student budgets, we figured our choice of hostel would end up being poorer than expected but we were pleasantly surprised! Stayokay Amsterdam Vondelpark is an amazing hostel with great facilities. And the breakfast was awesome!

This hostel was absolutely amazing. Very clean, safe, and the staff was very helpful, despite the language barrier. Breakfast was included in our price and very good! Location was great and beds were comfortable. Bunk beds weren't that hard to climb either! Had a nice toilet and shower in the room. Definitely recommend and will stay there again!

The female dorm was nice and spacious. The included breakfast was nice. The showers were hot. Almost to big to meet others. They also have bike rentals.

Hi there. Thanks for the great comments. We do not rent bike out ourselves, but we do work together with Green Budget Bikes, discount voucher available at reception.
