“Brilliant location, great hostel.”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

Spot on for location. Couldn't be better. Right on a canal, just down the road and round the corner from the red light district.

Dorm room was nice enough. Bunk beds, proper hostel but was fine. Shared bathroom, but yeah, no problems there either, was clean and accessible enough.
Got a great deal with the room, there was about 10 of us going, and I think it was only about £40 for 2 nights.

Definitely stay here if you're on a tight budget.

I was there for only one night, i can't find anything really bad. The bathrooms were big and clean, the rooms also. At night is quiet. The breakfast is not awesome but is ok! And the staff is friendly!
The building was adapted so the organization of the hostel may seem a little strange but it's in the middle of the city and that is really the most awesome thing! Highly recommend!

Thank you for your review and ratings. We are happy to hear you liked our breakfast so much. The lockers are outside the rooms so that using them will not wake people up late at night or early in the morning. We are sorry about the showers and the smell. They are cleaned twice a day, but I'm sure we could have done something about it at the time. Frank, Stayokay Stadsdoelen

Good location, you really get an Amsterdam feel in this hostel, right on the canals. The bathrooms at times were a bit horrific, broken tissue clinging to the bottom of basins, and vomit all over a toilet in the morning, not too nice to see. WiFi was very patchy, I understand you admit in the conditions that is isn't always perfect, but in 2013, if I have to go to McDonalds to get responsive WiFi, I'm not staying again. Also, no bar in hostel, not very social. Next time I'm in Amsterdam, I'm going to stay at Stayokay Vondelpark, it looks like a better option, but just not as well located.

Dear,

Thank you for your response! Great that you enjoyed our location! All our bathrooms and toilets are being cleaned twice a day (morning and evening). We have free wifi available in our lobby, tv room and breakfast room. Stayokay Vondelpark is also a great hostel, right next to the museumplein and leidseplein.

Kind Regards, Anna from Stayokay

Stayed there with my friends for a couple of nights, this hostel has great location - its walking distance to most of Amsterdam attractions, service was friendly and helpful. There could be more sockets for charging phones etc. But it was possible to leave phones at reception for overnight charge.
I would visit again and highly recommend it to everyone who is not afraid to stay in hostels ;)

I've just got back from Amsterdam and stayed in this hostel while there. The staff are so helpful and friendly! I've got a gammy leg and couldn't get up many steps so they rearranged various bookings so me and two friends could stay together in a room on a lower floor. The staff came and checked on me the day after it was all arranged to ascertain if it all went okay, too. I'D RECOMMEND THIS HOSTEL HANDS DOWN TO ANYONE WANTING TO STAY IN AMSTERDAM.

Room Tip: If you've got mobility problems request a lower room as the building in the city are tall and co...

I like that this hostel was next to the party spots in Amsterdam but had a quieter more relaxed vibe to it. It has a small tv room that is hidden downstairs or a few couches in the reception to hang out and meet people coming in. The sheets were all new looking and packaged in plastic and you just grabbed a bag and made your bed yourself. The staff was helpful and knowledgable but not overly friendly and inviting.

Thank you for your response on Tripadvisor!

Good to hear that you enjoyed our hostel. You are right, we are so close to the Dam, Redlight district and Rembrandtplein. However the location is more quiet. Glad that you liked our TV-room and facilities. We will look into your comment about staff! I am glad to hear that they were helpful and knowledgable!
