Pros: Very Clean, great breakfast, facilities were fantastic, near an excellent park Cons: More Hotel than Hostel, not a place to meet new people if you're young (average age when I was there was mid 40's), a bit of a walk from Arnhem itself
It's well out of the way, I struggled to find it. No kitchen. However you get a good breakfast and en suite bathroom. There is an (expensive) bar and a decent common area by reception and you can borrow books. Security is pretty good and it's quite quiet. The rooms are pretty decent.
A good green location and a lovely walk through the park to arrive at the hostel ...... it may be about 2km ..... but worth the walk.
It was a 30 minute hike with backpack on to reach from the railway station, so not ideal. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The included breakfast was good, but I think given it location a better dinner menu (more choices) would enhance it's appeal. One negative is the lack of liquid soap hand wash in the rooms for hygiene after toilet use. The surrounding parklands are very relaxing.

This is a great hostel with very friendly staff. It is a bit of a walk into town but not far from the bus and ideal for bikes with good overnight security of bikes. No washing facilities or drying room but I think that is norm on continent. I would use stay okay again.
Excellent value. This place has hotel level quality, included breakfast with proper food options, the location is a bit of a hike from Arnhem Centraal but it is in a lovely quiet street. The staff were very helpful, the rooms were clean and the wifi was excellent. One of the best hostels I have visited.
Its great! Nothing much to complain about though. The staff are very helpful, hostel is very clean, facilities are good, breakfast is great as well!
This was the first time I stayed at a Stayokay hostel. The staff was very courteous and helpful. I'm on bicycle tour of Europe. I especially appreciated the fact that they lock the bicycle in a secure location rather than just locked up on the street or down in a basement.

Excellent stay. Only two minor complaints. The windows of the rooms cannot be properly opened, it's too hot in there and there can be a bad smell - it's a backpacker hostel after all. Opening the windows is really necessary. Also in the other rooms of the house, there was not enough air circulation and it smelt badly. The staff should at least open extensively all windows. The location is pleasant but very far from the city center.
A bit far from town but a great place to lat up for the night,close to the park,which is great for the summer evenings
This was my first hostel experience and I was very impressed! Comfortable and clean environment, staff was very helpful in helping us plan our activities, and the breakfast was much better than expected. The bike rental service was great also. Location is quiet and about a 20 minute walk from the center of town, very restful. Thought it is a little on the pricier side, I would highly recommend this hostel!
it took me ages to reach the hostel by bike... when it rained like cats and dogs... i just didnt know where the hostel is and it was quite difficult to find it. the breakfast was just excellent. and thanks for having a bike shed.

non-detachable plastic (yes, plastic) cover on pillow and mattress will make you sweat. Beside that a very nice hostel at low price, with a good breakfast..
This hostel is far from the center and you have to take a bus or a bike to go anywhere. There were a lot of families with young kids. Bar and restaurant in the hostel is a good thing, diner has a good quantity/value rate. Shower would deserve a better cleaning.
Very friendly, patient and easy going staff. Room was a little bit small for four persons. Very good breakfast. All in all quite good hostel.
Clean, welcoming hostel, outs of adults there during the week makes it welcoming for all. Pub is great, try the nachos! Rooms are basic but clean. Wifi only available in pub area, but is fairly fast. Breakfast was a nice buffet.
The hostel was located very far from the city center, but you don't have much choice. The place itself looks lovely so if you don't mind walking a bit, or if you got a car, don't hesitate to stay here.
Stayok is great. Very clean and friendly. Price is reasonable too. Location is the only issue. Far from city centre. The trade-off is that it is located on the edge of a beautiful park.
everything was good except location... it was hard to reach there :(
