Liked: Very good convenient location. Much closer to Red Light District than advertised. Great complimentary breakfast.

Disliked: The rooms had no privacy. The bathrooms were all same-sex, and it did not feel very clean. The lockers were outdated, and the rooms sometimes felt unsafe. I made my bed in the morning and came back to a rather messy bed, proving that a stranger must have napped in it while I was gone. The rooms were loud all hours of the night, and I honestly had terrible nights of sleep during my stay. They allowed people to check in at 3AM, and our room mates were all very loud and drunk.

Liked: Great location, close to the Dam and at a walking distance from the central station. There were lockers in the room and we could bring our own padlocks or buy one there. The staff was friendly.

Disliked: I think it was very expensive, but I guess you can't avoid this in Amsterdam.

Liked: StayOkay Stadsdoelen is in a superb location! It's less than five minutes from a row of eateries and about ten minutes from Dam Square, which is central to everything in Amsterdam. You can walk anywhere from Dam Square so this is a perfect location. There are lockers in the lobby room if you arrive before check in or want to stay in the area after. And there are also lockers in a hallway just outside the dorm room that are pretty large and assigned to each bed. Cool building. Staff was friendly. They called a cab for us the morning we left. And they give out free maps and tons of discount cards!

Disliked: There were only 2 outlets in our room which were occupied the whole time, but they provide a couple power strips downstairs in the lobby so just go at an off time and you can charge your stuff in no time.

Liked: What I liked most about this property was the location, breakfast service and lockers. The rest of it was not so good.

Disliked: Rooms were very noise, 20 beds in one room is way too much! You don't have a very good sleep, but the perfect location is worth it.

Liked: Was quite a large hostel, in a good location, 5 min walk from Dam square. Was hard to meet people as they were all doing their own thing, but met some fun people from the hostel on the walking tour. Relatively clean, but annoying that there was only two plug sockets between 20. All in all, a pretty good hostel.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: Really friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast was great - a good choice of food and drinks. The location was perfect which made it easy to get to different parts of the city.

Disliked: There are hardly any plugs to charge your electronics. In our dorm for 8 people there were only 2 plugs and they were in awkward places. However, it was possible to leave your electronics with reception to charge - but this was only found out on the last day! Also, the toilets and showers weren't the cleanest but were acceptable.

Liked: It was an extremely safe and very clean hostel. The rooms were huge so it didn't feel like you were stuck in a stuffy room with so many people. I also loved that you could lock all your stuff up directly in the room. Even though it was a shared bathroom facility, it was very clean and there was never a line for showers! Breakfast was also very good!

Disliked: The room only had a few electrical outlets, none of which were located close to the beds. They also didn't have a bar or a big common area where you could visit with other people staying at the hostel making it a bit more difficult to meet other travellers.

Liked: I strongly recommend this property to any kind of travellers. We were a group of 4 our traveling was kind of backpacking ripe and the hostel acomplished our expectations. There were a family with kids and couples in the hostel and they looked happy as well. The location is great, the breakfast is really good, everything is clean. The bathrooms smelled a little but that's normal giving the fact that you're sharing with all the people.

Liked: Great location! Close to the best part of Amsterdam and walkable from central station. Breakfast is a highlight too!

Disliked: The bathroom is TERRIBLE! Not only it is far from being clean, it is shared from men and women, so you need to take a shower and change clothes in the same box, which is wet! So you need to chose between being naked in front of the other gender or have pants wet or even try some circus abilituies to change in a wet small box.
