Erik Thordarson thinks…

"Good location, short walk to dam square and only 15 min walk from the train station. Clean rooms and the beds are good."

Liked: Location. Rooms by the canals. Quiet area but still so close

Disliked: I think they could use another space for a chill out area away from reception. Where you can meet people.

Liked: Definitely the location !

Disliked: Staff was not friendly at all, they just want to make money on your back. I would recommend an air bag for sleeping time. It is much better to avoid diseases

Liked: it was clean, they had big lockers

Disliked: be prepared for the possibility of climbing numerous flights of stairs (about eight), and the fact that there is no kitchen or place to prepare your food in general, a few of the staff seemed a bit oblivious to the fact that they were working in a youth hostel and not in the basement office of an insurance company. note: if you are coming to amsterdam to smoke, there is no smoking room in this hostel.

Liked: I liked that the the sheets and floor were really clean the first day we arrived. The sheets are in individual separated plastic bags for hygiene. I liked the fact that breakfast was included in the price and it was rather good and the dining-room was very clean as well.

Disliked: I didn´t like the fact that there weren´t any plugs available within my dormitory, so if you need to charge your mobile you need to stay in a common room just next to the dormitory where the lockers are located. I didn´t like that showers were fixed on the wall. It is true that they were acceptably clean, but in my opinion the space provided to have a shower and leave your things was too small and uncomfortable.

Liked: The staff where all very pleasant the place was extremely clean ,safe and secure . This was my first time ever staying in a hostel and i was a little concerned thinking it could be loud and hard to get to sleep but it was quiet and every other guest was very respectful of each other privacy . When i go back to Amsterdam i will definitely stay at the Stayokay Stadsdoelen again . One last thing i for got to mention is the location is fantastic and so close to everything but yet the street was so quiet and not full of clubs or rowdy drunks .

Disliked: I honestly cant fault anything about my stay .

Liked: Very secure, very good location, very friendly and helpful staff. Lovely breakfast!

Disliked: No cooking facilities and the showers did not feel very private. It was also very hard to get dry and change into clothes after the shower as the cubicles and toilets were very small and wet all the time and there was nothing to make your bed private (Eg. an individual lamp for each bed and a cloth to pull across the bed so no one can see in).

Liked: the location is perfect for everything you would like to do whilst visiting

Disliked: (it's a long list) 1- only one electrical socket per room of 16 beds so when I had to charge my phone I had to take it to the reception. again. and again and again... very boring and frustrating. 2- I found the majority of the staff to be unfriendly and rather rudre in their approach to customers. 3- the shower/toilet ares were skanky and in need of a good clean 4- the floor of my room was covered in dirt and didn't look liked it had been cleaned in quite awhikle.

Liked: The location is gorgeous. In the centre but just away from the main roads. Canals at the front and back of the property. Walking distance to everywhere. Breakfast is in a lovely room aswell and is really great value, especially since its included in the price. The hostel is clean and there plenty of showers and toilets(I never had to queue once.) Would defianately return again and reccomend other people to stay.

Disliked: Nothing.
