First of all, kudos for such wonderful staff! To Ruben, Jesse, and the gentleman with glasses manning the reception tuesday evening 15thDec (sorry cant remember name). Great tips and guidance! Place is squeaky clean, modern, well insulated, good breakfast, very good quality and comfy bikes (and well priced). Only thing missing: water-boiler/coffee-making facilities/microwave/fridge for guests. This is still a hostel, not a hotel, nobody wants to eat restaurant/fast-food twice a day for weeks!

The hostel was located central enough and the room was clean. having to be buzzed in everytime transports a feeling of safety, on the other hand everybody is let in an no one even looks up to see if it is a guest or not. But I felt altogether safe, especially because the room areas are only accessable by key card.

Great breakfast and lovely staff who were so helpful. It was a bit far from the city centre but very close to the museums and I didn't mind the walk into town. Vondelpark was also lovely and it felt safe. There wasn't a great social space, everyone kept to themselves and there was no kitchen which was a bit annoying but as long as you keep that in mind it's a great place to stay

Right in downtown, yet also nicely tucked away into the park. Stayed here for two nights and I have no complaints.

Staff was super helpful and friendly. The directions to the hostel are clear and specific and make arriving in the city late at night much less stressful!

The staff are all friendly and super helpful. The location is excellent. Power is an issue, with only 4 sockets in a 12 person dorm, however they will charge your phone at reception. Drinks are a little expensive. The atmosphere is good and I'd stay here again

If you're looking for a party hostel, or somewhere to meet fellow travellers, StayOkay is not the place for you. It had great facilities & everything was clean, but was seriously lacking in atmosphere- it felt more like a hotel. The bar was quiet, and it wouldn't have been appropriate to get super drunk. Staff were super friendly, just not exactly what I was looking for.

El hostal es bueno, el ambiente para conocer gente es Excelente, el desayuno es espectacular y tienen todos los servicios necesarios. Sin embargo la señorita que alquila las bicicletas es grosera y poco amable.

The lack of outlets in the room (I was in a 6 bed, all female dorm) was a little tough. Also Zandpad is quite dark at night, so the walk, though short, can be a little unnerving. However, everything else was absolutely wonderful. The free breakfast is a blessing, the layout of the hostel and dorms is efficient, and the beds and linens are quite comfortable.

the location of this hostel was excellent. although its not right on the canals its is very close by and is a block away from Vondelpark. The staff was very helpful and the hostel was run like a well oiled machine. I was very impressed with their breakfast as well.

The beds and bathrooms were great! The breakfast every morning was a blessing!! Getting tickets for events around Amsterdam was very easy and at a discounted rate thanks to the wonderful staff! I will recommend STAYOKAY to my friends and family from home! Cheers!

The first night, my bed hadn't been cleaned when I got there. It took almost an hour of waiting in line after I'd already checked in to tell them their job hadn't been done properly. And when they did clear it, they made it seem like it was my fault for bothering them.

Das Hostel is ganz toll für paar Tage! Wie waren zu 4. In einem zu kleinen Zimmer (man kommt sich wie in einem Kasten vor) aber sonst war alles super!

Only thing I didn't like was the lack of atmosphere, it was more like a hotel than hostel, not awful but as a solo backpacker it was hard to meet friends. Went on the free walking tour though which was great, helpful staff. Also, amazing location next to the beautiful vondel park. Definitely recommend.
