“Clean - basic but good enough for us!”
Reviewed 1 July 2013 via mobile

My wifi, me and our 8year old son stayed here for one night in June 2013.
Here are the things we appreciated about the place.
1 - my son loved the bunk beds
2 - for a hostel, the accommodations were good including private shower and toilet.
3- the staff at the front desk were friendly and very helpful with figuring out bus routes and access to sites.
4- within walking distance (15 minutes) of the Open Air Museum, a nice bakery and a small grocery shop
5- they had games you cold borrow for a rainy day
6- clean and good wifi
7- we were able to leave our bags most of the day behind the counter while we attended the park and museum
8- the breakfast was great - eggs, bread, cereal, yogurt, cheese, meat, coffee, juice
Here are the things on the down side
1- we wanted to get to the Kroller-Mueller museum in the National Park nearby but it is really tiresome to get to. Long bus ride. The staff at the hotel were great at helping us figure it out, but access the park and museum are a pain from Arnhem. It took approximately 45 minutes by bus to reach the park gates.
2- many kids stayed in the hostel and so it was loud until around 10PM and again early in the morning.
3- towels are not provided in the room but can be rented for 2 euros (one large and one small for that price) - there is also no soap in the rooms
Overall, it did the job.

Stayed June 2013

I'm new to hosteling, I felt comfortable in this one. Lots of adults during the week, nice pub and helpful staff. Rooms are well kept. The Internet wifi signal is confined to the lounge area but it has decent speed and is free.

Reviewed 7 March 2013

We chose this hostel just based on the price, because we had a car and therefore the location was not a problem. Actually the hostel wasn't that far away from city centre. The staff suggested we should take a bus to downtown instead of paying quite high parking fees. It was a brilliant idea, return ticket costs 3e per person and there is a bus stop (hospital) close to hostel. At least bus line number 3 took us to downtown and back. A bus ride was 10 min.

We had a two person bedroom with own bath room. It was very basic, but considering the price, no complaints. I forgot we should have had our own towels, so we passed the shower this time. There is a pub downstairs and a breakfast was relatively good too. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Overall we slept well and saved money compared to hotel. There was also free parking beside the road.

Tip: You will get 5 % discount, if you make a reservation directly via their website and accept there is no cancellation policy.

I was pleasantly surprised by how much i liked this hostel.

The rooms were clean with a sperate wc and shower room, with plenty of hot water all day. Although each room had only bunkbeds, this was fine for our family for a weekend trip. There was space at the end of the room for a table & chairs and small wardrobes. The room was a little compact, but there was enough walking space between the bukbeds to not feel cramped.

The breakfast was a buffet style, with plenty of fruit, bread, meat and cheese. My children really enjoyed the chocolate spread and sprinkles as well, a novelty not offered at home.

The hostel has a lovely play area outside for kids as well as air hockey and a snooker table inside. The staff were very nice and extremely helpful, and did not compain with our children playing around the social space. There was also a bar with reasonable prices, but rather horrid wine.

I would recommend a stay here for a day or two if your passing through or are in the area. Very pleasant.

I had picked it for the location, as I was attending a dinner nearby. The room was clean, basic as can be expected. I did not sleep too well due to vicinity of the staircase and noises of people returning to their room during the (Saturday)night.
The common room is very cozy, with comfy leather chairs, pool table and bar and reception/bar staff was extremely friendly. Breakfast was good for hostel standers and included warm mini baguettes.

Reviewed 23 October 2010

I stayed at the Stayokay Arnhem for a boardgame event and shared a room with 3 other attendees. The front desk staff were not the most friendly, but the bar staff were very chatty and friendly.
It is certainly a hostel, nothing too flash or fancy and all the fittings are quite basic and rugged, but I guess they need to be.
The hostel serves breakfast and dinner, and there's a supermarket just a few minutes walk away for lunches and snacks. I slept really well each night.
Not the best place to stay if you want to see the town but they have bikes to rent and a few people at the event did that.
