Good hostel. Very clean and free breakfast. The staff is very nice. The atmosphere is a little bit sad though.
You can not make your own food. A major floor in any hostel
The location is pretty far from everything, including the Centraal station. There are no lockers available in the rooms. In fact, the only place they have to secure your items is a pay per hour/day small locker area- not ideal at all. However, the staff was very pleasant and helpful. It was a good place for the money but if you won't be missing anything if you choose a hostel closer to the city center.
There was no members kitchen,access to a small kitchen with a kettle and some basic food preparation area would have been good. This is becoming the norm in Belgium/Netherlands it seems. I would advise visitors to take a travel kettle.
This seemed to be a place for a younger crowd, groups of students, and families. Other than that the breakfast is the best I've had in a hostel. It has a nice bar and is located close to the train.
The only thing that was not convenient was that there was no fridge and microwave, things that are essentials for backpackers to feel comfortable doing.
Although the staff was not so flexible, everything was normal and the breakfast was amazing. The space is really good to spend a nice time.
Has no own parking, and the parking is very expensive around. We took a hall for a bit more than a day and paid 38€. Park and Ride would be possible but then the way is much longer. We had a 8 people room for 5 - brilliant :)
Really great hostel !! And staff is very friendly and cool. Will definitely come back.
Comfortable beds and spacious rooms. Lots of shelving to use, but would have preferred lockers. Great breakfast and all the staff are super friendly. Very close to HS station (not central station) but only 10-15min walk to centre. Site says wifi in lobby, but it will work well in some rooms. Unfortunately our showerhead in the girls dorm was all clogged up so the water sprayed everywhere and there wasn't enough pressure. Hard to follow their suggestions to have 5min showers to conserve water.
The hostel felt more like a hotel than a hostel, with elevators, carpeted hallways, and some smaller rooms. Our room had 4 bunk beds (8 total beds) and its own sink, shower, and toilet stall. Everything was laid out for us and easy to navigate. The breakfast was nice for a hostel, cafeteria style. The back patio is on a canal, a great place to pass by the morning/evening. It's about a 20 minute walk from anything in the city, but it's a straight shot, so it's not difficult to get to/from.
Everything is ok except for the internet. I couldn't connect with the wi-fi provided in the hostel and the staff just told me that nothing he could help because maybe there are too many people were using so the internet was congested. But that night I was in need with internet !!! :(

First, the dorm room is the largest one I have lived ever. Very comfortable and really clean. But there is no locker but drawer. Very good breakfast. Next to Den Haag HS. (Not Centraal ) But it is good location. Small bar next to canteen, good atmosphere at night. Very good Value.
The stained 3rd floor carpets let the hotel down. otherwsie it was great.
We were a group of seven and had a mostly pleasant stay. The rooms were clean and big. The shower was a little moldy and the hallway to the rooms was not a real pleasant view. The hostel had a elevator and was located near to some tram lines.

Stayokay Den Haag is an excellent hostel. It's clean with great facilities. The only issue world be that's it's a little further out of the city than other hostels but it only takes 5 minutes to get into the city by tram.
Difficult to find the location of the hotel as the direction is not accurate as per given in the website. Signange of the hotel is not 'eyes looking' and may missed it if guest did not look at the street name. On the way back to the hotel, i bump into one guest who was lost to find the hotel. Apart from that, everything else is good.
5mins walk to the HS train station, very good location. Very nice and helpful staff. Wifi was available in the room and the signal was good. Breakfast was good but there won't be many things left after 9:00. Two sinks in our 8-female Dorm on the 3rd floor. And the sinks, shower room and restroom were separated in three rooms--Good design. The only imperfect thing might be that there was no refrigerator for the guests. You couldn't store your food anywhere cold. Anyway, I'll recommend this hostel
It was a great stay overall. The only bad thing was the bathroom in the bedroom. There is no door, so the water goes everywhere during the shower, Good breakfast, facilities and location very close to the train station.
The room is clean and breakfast is quite good. I like it. It's the famous hostel in the Netherlands. Worth!
