Liked: Great location near the centre, but also in a quiet spot. Felt very secure, with key-cards for entry and 24-hour reception. Was handy being able to book tickets at reception, and the staff were really helpful. Cosy bar, and awesome breakfast and dining area. Very smoothly-run facilities.

Disliked: Nothing. It's huge, and very busy (if that's not what you want) but like I said, it is very well-run and the facilites cater for large numbers so we were always helped and fed quickly :)

Liked: Best breakfast, loads of options. Easy to get to from the airport - only one bus to catch. It's in Leidesplein so its where all the clubs (not red light district) is so that was a bonus. Don't forget a padlock. 20 bed room is quite separated, like a cubicle so its not too bad.

Disliked: Nothing really, you have to pay for electronic safes. Only one toilet though between 20. Receptionist wasn't too helpful with highlighting sights on the map.

Liked: Location is great and it is very secure. The shower and toilet within the dorm are great and the rooms are quite spacious.

Disliked: Very poor atmosphere - my friend and I were on 4th floor Block C and for most of our stay we didn't see other travelers. The common area was dead for most of our trip. Also, lots of older people (60+) were staying in the hostel which we found strange.

Liked: Super clean, quiet and comfy. Easy to find, modern and not pokey and small like so many of the stories I've heard about hostels in Amsterdam. Great breakfast and you could get any info you needed from the people at reception. While not in the centre of Amsterdam, it's within walking distance of the very centre and with trams its totally manageable. Right by the Van Gogh museum, Leidesplein (main area for nightlife) and the park so that was great. Loved it there!

Disliked: Had to pay for the lockers if we wanted to leave our bags at the hostel after checking out but otherwise no complaints!

Liked: The 6 bed dorm room was clean and comfortable. It was useful that it had seperate shower and toilet facilities within the private room. There was plenty of space and lockers available. The shared social area on the first level is also very comfortable and a good place to hang out.

Disliked: There was not anything I really disliked about Stayokay Vondelpark. It was a pleasant stay.

Liked: Would'nt bother looking for another Hostel again when I visit A/dam now that I have found this one. It is the best one I've stayed in - and I have stayed in lots of them over the years. It is about 12- 15 mins on a tram from Cenral Station + 5 mins walk from the Leidseplien stop to the Hostel doors. It is away from the noise of the Red light area and the churches that have bells which ring every 1/4 hour through the night.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Excellent location, facing the charming Vondelpark and a 5-minute walk from Museumplein (Rijks, Van Gogh). Correct breakfast, fairly comfortable beds and welcoming atmosphere.

Disliked: The smell in the halls, the price of internet use, but nothing else if you're lucky enough to have good roommates.

Liked: The thing I like the most about this hostel is the beautiful old style building block where I stayed. The dorm was big and although there were many people in it, the lay out of the bed gave everyone sufficient privacy and space. The view of the park was amazing.

Disliked: the stairs to reach my room! :) there is a lift but you are kindly asked not to use it in certain hours as it is used by the house keeping staff.

Liked: Breakfast was great and rooms were clean

Disliked: Wasn't a party atmosphere if you want to meet people. Everyone kind of chills and is more of a go to sleep kind of spot or a rest day between travels.
