“cheap and fun”
Reviewed 17 September 2007

hi the stayokay stadsdoelen is a hostel i will travel back to as it is cheap and a good hostel central to everything in amsterdam.the dorms are cleaned every day and is a comfortable stay in amsterdam. there is no curfew and the staff are all very friendly and the bar is a really good place to hang out with your friends. 5 mins walk you are in the rembrant plein its a square with lots of cafes and bars which is lively of a night. also the leidsplein by the hard rock cafe is where nightlife is aswell . take no notice to the other reviews about not having clean sheets as you put them on yourself clean everyday . if you are over 30 do not stay at this hostel as you will feel out of place as everyone is between 18- 25 mainy american backpackers but there are people from all over . you have to go to the red light district as you have to see it Unbelievable . all in all i would recommend this hostel and will be traveling back soon brett

This hostel was terrible!!! Not only was there hair in our "clean" sheets which we put on the beds ourselves, but I noticed red hives & bumps all over my body after sleeping there, which I soon found out were bed bug bites. It was a disaster when I got home, we had to fumagate our flat, and clean every piece of clothing..just incase they were in our clothes. DO NOT stay here...trust me, it's not worth it!

We stayed in an 8-people room (we were 7) so we had a "visitor" every two days, that was nice because we met interesting people. What we didn´t like was that they told us that they had gest kitchen and it wasn´t. We were going to stay there for 8 nights, so it was important for us to have a place to cook.
The breakfast was very good, the cafeteria was nice, with a very big window just in the canal. The rooms, showers and the hostel in general was clean. I would go again and recomment it. Was not expensive at all and right in the center of the town.

  • Liked — lugar y las instalaciones en general
  • Disliked — no tiene cocina
  • Tips/Secrets — hay sitios para comer a buen precio y bares por todos lados, solo tienen que disfrutar de la ciudad, es preciosa!!

Stayed in this hostel for three nights during an Interrail trip through France, Netherlands, Luxembourg and Belgium. Has a decent breakfast buffet included in the price. Stayed in a 12 person dorm room. Staff make an effort at trying to keep things clean, but the sheer affluence of people makes it difficult. Great location near nightclubs, cheap supermarket, Red Light District, food places, etc.

Big lockers to put belongings in safely away. 5 euro deposit for the locks.

Bed reservations are more expensive on weekends.
Nightly pubcrawl for about 10 euros.
Internet service.
