The wifi just works in the living room But instead of this it was everything perfect. Amazing breakfast and everything clean. It is not the cheapeast hostel but I am sure that is a good value for money.

Had a great stay at stayok. Good location, easy 30 minute walk to dam square or 10 minute tram ride to most major attractions. Friendly staff, comfy beds, good bar and nice and clean. Free walking tour is a must

No real complaints at all...but nothing exciting to rave about either. Very sterile and more of a hotel atmosphere than a hostel. Good value for the money if your looking for a bed. Wifi only in common area. Staff very knowledgeable and helpful but lacks enthusiasm.

Great hostel, definitely recommend hiring a bike from the hostel it's the best way to see amsterdam, Vondelpark is beautiful and right next door! Also close to the Amsterdam letters

More like a hotel than a hostel. There were huge groups of school children staying there. Not ideal for a solo traveller like myself as it's very hard to meet people. Hostel a little out from main square. But a lovely bar downstairs. Rooms were ok, nothing special for the price. Nice breakfast. Lockers in the room too. Right next to a lovely park.

Great atmospehere, friendly people at reception, clean, great that breakfast is included, good location (near to the museums...), feeling of safety (it is good when you're travelling alone). I usually stay at Stayokay hostels and I am always satisfied :)

Massive hostel next to Vondel Park. No kitchen facilities but standard continental breakfast provided. Amsterdam is small so everything is accessible by foot. The hostel has weak WIFI and no real social scene.

Location was good. Close to the museums but far from the city centre I.e dam square etc. Staff were friendly and helpful. Padlocks sold by the hostel has the same key to unlock all Padlocks sold there for some strange reason. Rates were pretty expensive for some reason during the week I went. Overall pretty good place!

Thank you for your response! Good to hear that your enjoyed the location and friendly staff! Did you tell the reception about the padlocks?! It is probably an error in the production, we will check this immediately! The rates are based on availability and day. We hope to see you again! Kind regards, Anna from Stayokay

I requested a double room with my friend and I would assume for a smaller room and for what we paid we would get something a bit better than average. it turned out to be lower than average. dirty, it smelled, and very cramped. service was good, helpful enough, but you can tell they were over exerted. location was good because it was right by the park and still far enough away from downtown.

Thank you for your response! Good that you enjoyed our location and service! Sorry to hear that the room did not exceeded to your expectations. Our hostel does not have double rooms, only two bedded private rooms. Most of them with a bunk bed. Did you mention to reception that the room was dirty? It is unacceptable to have a dirty room. Kind regards, Anna from Stayokay Vondelpark

Easy walk/tram from central. Opposite the glorious vondelpark - good for cycling, walking or picnics. The hostel is divided into three buildings. Large foyer containing reception and lounge with professional staff. Key card entry to rooms similar to budget hotel. Lockers in rooms, but need own locks. Beds are clean and comfortable enough with reasonable space. Could do with more plug points. Bar/food reasonable. Continental breakfast excellent. Would be happy to stay again in this well run hoste

Hostel was great! Brilliant value for money and the staff were very friendly, willing to cater for our every need. Amsterdam is a beautiful place, and I will definately be back next year to the same hostel! It was fab.

Great location, staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast was fantastic! Every morning there's fresh organic bread, juice, boiled eggs, cereal... There is only wifi in the common area. The park is steps away and a great park at that. It was however a huge hostel/hotel so the environment was lacking.

nice place I would recommend to others. The wifi didn't work over half the time which was frustrating (I think it was overloaded) but good facilities and fun hanging out at the bar.

It feels more like a Hotel than a Hostel, meaning the cleanness and the facilities are Excellent but the atmosphere and the staff was rather poor. Not a "make-new-friends" hostel at all!


77%

Was clean enough. No kitchen became an issue. Was no real community feel here, difficult to meet people. However good value and right next to Leideseplein which is exactly where you want to be. Showers and bathrooms in the room were quite small. Lockers were a good size though!
