Stayed in this hostel for a couple of nights and enjoyed our stay. It was a great location with clean and comfortable rooms. The only things that I would warn travelers about is that they do not have towels included in the rooms, wifi only in the downstairs lobby, and no kitchen available for the guests. It is also a little more expensive than most hostels and felt more like a hotel than a hostel. If you are traveling by yourself it is a great place to meet other young travelers though!

As if paying around €40 a night to sleep in a dorm, this hostel is a classic case of overpaying for a subpar hostel. The facilities are decent but nowhere worth the price. As if it wasn't already expensive enough, towels cost money as does using the computers. About the only affordable thing in the hostel is the luggage storage, but what type of hostel makes you pay for luggage storage? Would not stay here again

Dear ofriedm,
Thanks for sharing your experiences. Amsterdam is a very popular city in July & August. Our pricing is comparable to similar hostels in the area and we feel we provide good value given our central location and extensive facilities.
We regret that this was not your impression and offer our apologies.

We came from the Croydon in the red light district (the place was a complete nightmare) and stayed at the StayOkay because it was the only place that had rooms available around the same price range.

It was excellent! Other than the fact that there's bunk beds and you share a room with other people (there were 6 beds in our room), it was practically a hotel.

I would absolutely stay again and definitely recommend. Also the park next door is beautiful to walk through, especially as there isn't much to see in Amsterdam.

Feel free to email me for further details.

Room Tip: All the rooms are the same as far as I am aware. We stayed in building A.

We were in a room of 4 beds. There are lockers in the room so we could put our stuff safe while visiting the city and its amazing museums. Never had a drink or a meal (we went outside) but the breakfast is excellent (4 types of bread, 2 jams, butter, meat, cheese, fresh fruits, milk, coffee, tea, cereals) we really could enjoy a great dish before going outside! Plus the location is ideal, next to the great Leidseplein!

I went to Amsterdam two times and I always slept to the StayOK Hostel.
The hostel is pretty cool because is near to Vondelpark, a very nice park in Amsterdam. The rooms are standard and clean, the receptionists always were so kind and helpful.
Maybe it's not a Grand Hotel, but for a fast and not too expensive trip in Amsterdam StayOK will always be my first choice.

I stayed in a 6-bed room for three nights. The room was clean and very calm compared to other hostels I've stayed in. They day I got there I was shocked to see mold at the ceiling of the shower, but after telling the staff it was painted over the next day. Another thing: Only one power outlet for six people is quite inconvenient.
The staff were very competent and I'd recommend buying tickets to the big museums in advance at their desk, because they can give you tips on what you can visit and there is a discount.
The only thing I did not like was the breakfast. The cheese and bread rolls looked and tasted like they had been left out for hours. But the coffee was better than in most hostels.
Wifi was also okay, but only in the common area which could get quite crowded.
The hostel is conveniently located near the museum district right next to a park. I walked everywhere, but to the city center it takes about 15 minutes. I'd recommend taking the tram there, the stop is not far from the hostel.

Good location and good amenities.

Went as part of a large group and tended to find that was the norm, lots of stag & hen dos.

Friendly staff, would visit again in a large group but if I was by myself or in a small group I'd have a look at other options.
