I stayed at the hostel with four friends, and we really enjoyed our time here. The atmosphere was great and the staff were very helpful and friendly (:

Wouldn't go back. Save your money. No wifi in the rooms, they charge to store your luggage, etc

Classic pay for everything hostel. Towels, using the computers, even the luggage storage. Big downstairs area but not ideal for a solo traveler. A pretty big ripoff for a dorm, but that could just be Amsterdam in peak season. Either way it's not worth the money. I wouldn't stay there again, it feels almost corporate

I was expecting something better for the ratings and the price. Rooms are average; kind of old and aesthetically unpleasant (say what!), I think they have different buildings and maybe I got sent to the not-so-good one. Wi-Fi only in common areas and didn't work for me when there was a lot of people in the room. It's a big hostel, so staff acts more like hotel staff, they are there and will help but it's not so relaxed as in small/laid back hostels.

Abbiamo alloggiato in questo ostello per tre notti e ci siamo trovato davvero bene. Abbiamo preso la stanza per sei con bagno privato e tutto era molto pulito, i letti sono davvero comodi e confortevoli. La colazione (inclusa nel prezzo) è bio, fresca e deliziosa: da provare!

This was the first place I stayed on on first ever interrailing trip. All I wanted to do was be sure to meet people and that happened very easily. It has a big common room filled with travellers. great for solo travelling. No need to worry. Bit expensive but that's just Amsterdam in general I guess.

This Hostel is perfect to live the nigth of Istambul, is 3 blocks from Taksym square, and is in the middle of everything. the owner is very funny and he did not charge extras for air conditionar, we can leave our luggage for free, the breakfast is cheap and the turkish tea is good ass well. The bathroom are no so good but you do not speend the time there is one toilet for 2 rooms. Ask for a room to inside the building because the street is very noise. The perfect place to stay

This is probably one of the most expensive hostels I have ever stayed in and definitely not even close to the best. The location is decent, right next to Vondlepark and Leiseplein square, but its quite a bit of a walk to the Anne Frank House, the red light district, and the centraal train station. A bit obnoxious that you have to buy a towel andthere are no outlets by your bed or wifi in your room. Also this hostel lacks any kind of atmosphere, some kind of planned activity would be nice.

The hostel is very confortable, with good facilities. The atmosphere isn't so great, though. Everybody just use the common area for the wifi, and there's no interaction. The bar is horrible, playing TERRIBLE music the entire day (seriously, someone could put some effort on the music). The staff is helpful but no so friendly. The best thing about this hostel is the AMAZING breakfast and the great location, close to the museums, vondelpark and lots of bars and restaurants.

Muy buena ubicación y el desayuno es muy bueno también, el único pero que le pongo es que el internet no llegaba hasta mi habitación.

The location in VondelPark is beautiful. However because it is actually in the park, depending on what area you are coming in from it can be difficult to spot. There is wifi (in the lounge/common area only*) and the rooms are pretty average. The beds are clean but the rooms/bathrooms could use a little aesthetic upgrade. You are fairly close (15 min walk) to retail (H&M, McDonalds, etc.) and the Red Light District is about 20 minutes away on a tram.Note* Day trams cost about 2.80 and night 4.00

Great location. Very nice buffet breakfast, getting there before 9.30 recommended as 10 is finishing time and the queue is crazy and you don't get all the stuff that's on offer! Really good overall. Just not enough plug sockets...... 1 in 6 bed dorm, very annoying. A handful in common area, where there are usually people sitting already! I would still recommend here however :)

Great hostel, great location! Hotels in general are very expansive in Amsterdam, but stayokay is a good alternative for being well located with fair price.

Staff was not super friendly, but the facilities and the location of the hostel made up for it! A great place to stay if you are looking for just a place to sleep, but not if you are looking to make friends.

This was my second stay at the hostel and it confirmed my happy memories from the previous visit. The only very minor criticism I have is that the key cards frequently 'failed' and had to be recharged (if that is the correct term). Otherwise a big THANK YOU to everyone who makes the place such a pleasure to stay at.
