Poor business managament. I booked this hostel for 3 nights, and found out the day before I was supposed to arrive it was closed for the holidays. Deposit was already paid weeks in advance. They claim they had contacted me. Have tried contacting property to resolve issue and they have stopped responding. Extremely frustrating.

Really lovely location. A bit of a walk from the town center, but worth it. WIFI was really expensive... seemed silly to charge when most places in town offer it for free. Rooms were pretty crammed and lockers would be nice. Overall clean and good atmosphere.

I didn't realize when booking this is NOT an actual hostel. It's a lodge with some backpacker dorms and communal kitchen. No lockers. Atmosphere wasn't like a normal hostel and there was nothing going on. Though, it is a beautiful location and if you're looking for some peace and quiet, it's perfect.

Honestly I was unimpressed with this place. It's WAY out of the city center, didn't have a great atmosphere, wifi didnt work too well, and the staff seemed a bit rude. I wanted to like this place based on the ratings... but I would skip it.

This was the BEST hostel. I just adored it. Katy was SO kind and helpful. Great vibes, funky art, musical instruments, nice kitchen. Free bikes and occasional free goodies. I would absolutely recommend this place. My only suggestion would be perhaps add lockers to the rooms.

If you're looking for a mellow, quiet hostel to get a good night's sleep, this place is great. If you're looking for something energetic and lively, check out the other hostels in town. Helpful staff.

Many ammenities and activities. A very FUN hostel. Could work on cleanliness. I know there are a lot of woofers working. Maybe a deep clean would be good sometimes in the bathroom/shower area... otherwise a nice stay.

The vibe of the hostel wasn't very personable. Maybe it was too large of a hostel for my taste. There were no planned evening activites as far as I was aware. I think that could help.

Good quiet location, and only a couple streets away from the chaos of the city center. Great free breakfast. Only con was the cleanliness of the bathroom.

Thank you for your response and rating! You are right, we are in the city centre just a few minutes walk away from the Dam, Redlight District and Rembrandt plein! Sorry to hear about the bathrooms, we will look in to that! Kind Regards, Anna Stayokay Stadsdoelen

Morning cleaning crew was rude. Even after bathrooms, etc. were cleaned, the bathrooms still seemed dirty. Shower faucets were terrible. The common room & bar downstairs was a nice place to hangout; but no one liked to mingle for conversation. I guess you get what you pay for.

Lovely get-away from the city. Wouldn't recommend it unless you have transportation.. but there are bikes, allowing you to see more of the countryside and vineyards. Great family who owns the place. Speaks little english. Overall, very nice.
