Having never stayed in a hostel before I was a bit nervous as to what it would be like but I need not have worried although I imagine the Stayokay Zeeburg is somewhat of an exception to the rule.
My room was clean, the bedding was in sealed bags so you knew it was clean and I wasn't expecting ensuite facilities which were a massive bonus. The beds were comfortable although the pillows were pretty lumpy but possible to sleep on.
Breakfast was great and plentiful and you could take as much as you wanted which was again unexpected.
The staff were very friendly in all interactions we had with them.
Perhaps the only downside was that the lockers were not in the rooms but instead by reception so you had to trust that your bags would be safe in the room while you were out, something I felt happy doing even though I normally wouldn't have. Also you had to pay for the lockers, 2 euro for 24 hours.
Even though it is a little way out from the centre of things the tram stop is a 2 minute walk.
I would definitely recommend this hostel to people who wanted a cheap place to stay and wanted to be able to escape central Amsterdam in the evenings.
