Excellent hostel, good location and service. We don't have wifi in bedrooms (just in the common areas), but they are very comfortable.

Very helpful staff. Need power points in rooms for charging phones/computers. It's the 21st century

If you want any sort of creature comforts then do not stay here. Besides its good location to the centre of town, my family and I were very disappointed with the lack of value for money. There was no tv in the room, free wifi was only available in the common area (which kept dropping out) and the private ensuite we booked and forked out extra for had no shower curtain, so the bathroom would get flooded. I have stayed in FAR nicer hostels in my days then this one!

Very friendly, helpful staff and a generally good location within walking distance of the city centre (also great for Museumplein!). If you're a fan of wandering (we certainly were) it's a great idea to make your way there by foot; that way, you can get a real feel for the city. A couple of things which really let Stayokay down: very poor wifi connectivity above first floor, hostel is lacking in character, and VERY FEW power outlets :( BUT breakfast is free, so not all bad. May stay again.

Hi there! We appreciate you give us feedback, thanks. You're right about the wifi connection, for now it's only available in the common areas (so not on the first floor or up). However, we're fixing that and at the end of the year we should have wifi in all the rooms as well. Also, we're doing renovations so we might get more character in your opinion soon. Hope you'll be back to check it out!

The receptionists must study the Touristic areas in order to better inform their guests.

Too bad to hear you didn't get great advice. Perhaps you talked to a new employee, most of us know plenty of the city and fun things to do! We hope you found your way and we'll see you again some day.

We really liked this hostel. The staff was really nice and helpful. We really appreciated their discount tickets on the attractions in the area, and breakfast included in the price was a major plus. The location is definitely within walking distance to the tourist sites as well. If your staying the weekend, I would recommend this hostel.

Very basic hostel - but great location. Atmosphere lacking as it is a massive hostel- mixed demographic. Good breakfast with nice view of the park. Need to pay for towels , safe & luggage storage. Also need to make up bed on arrival. Staff friendly & helpful. One of the better hostels that I have stayed in in Amsterdam - but not a patch on hostels in Germany , Portugal & Spain.

Good to hear you like our location and helpful and friendly staff. We do actually have a 'Full service' package which includes making up your bed and a towel for € 6,50. As we are a hostel you are right you need to pay for a towel, a padlock and for luggage storage. It's € 4,50 for both a towel and a padlock and the lockers are only 0,20 cents an hour. These are all extra service, feel free to bring your own towel and padlock to save money. Txs for breakfast compliment

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 !
