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.

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.

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.

I really loved staying at this hostel. Right from the first moment we arrived until the day we left they were friendly and helpful. Its right in front of the park too which is awesome!!

Simply the best hostel I've ever stayed. The location is awesome, almost inside Vondelpark. The staff is really atencious, the common room is big and comfortable, the bar is good and offers beverages for a good price. The hostel sells tickets for almost all the attractions in Amsterdam with a discount. Just loved it!

Very clean, efficient facilities; Not a friendly environment, just feels like a giant hotel with lots of young, wifi-addicted people.

I just prefer smaller, more intimate hostels. This one was so big, it was hard to meet people! So if you're a single traveler, maybe try a different hostel. That being said, though, the staff were really friendly and helpful, and the rooms were spacious and clean.

This was a good place to say, however it felt too much like a hotel and the vibes of the other patrons reflected this, it didnt have that close hostel vibe where people are willing to make new friends, other than that it was a good place.

My friend and I had a good 3 night stay here. However, the first night, we had some interesting roommates who had made our room very, very dirty. But after night 1 they left, and all was well! Cool people, great breakfast, great location.
