I'll just preface this with, easily my favorite city we have been to so far.

Amsterdam again brought us the surprise of a completely new style of city. It is young and vibrant and everyone is bustling about. By bustling about, I mean everybody is going somewhere all of the time, and for the most part, they take bicycles. They seem to have …

We made a mistake. We got to Amsterdam earlier than expected and arrived on a Friday afternoon (2 hours late because a track got flooded and we had to take a bus the rest of the way). This city is the Vegas of Europe so everyone went to party for the weekend except for two lame American girls who don't enjoy partying much. Everything was booked, we …

Amsterdam It was an excellent way to celebrate my last day at Bushey Academy - leaving at lunch time and heading out to Luton. Our 7pm easy jet flight was only delayed by 30mins or so. We met Laura, Hamish and Matt at the airport and grabbed dinner. We met Simon at the other end and bused into our hostel which was right in town. Our 8 bed dorm wasn …

Amster-damn it's pretty!

Aug 14 & 15. The flights from Brisbane to Amsterdam.
It all went much better than I thought it would. I flew Etihad from Melbourne to Abu Dhabi and managed to get a row of four seats all to myself, I took the chance to stretch out and get some sleep. Maybe too much sleep because I'm suffering from a little jet lag on my second day.

    The hotel was very nice and in a great part of town. The breakfast was free and had a great spread compared to other free breakfasts provided by hostels. Only down side almost no outlets nd WiFi only in the lobby. There was a tour pickup which was exceedingly helpful as well.

    Easy to find in the beautiful Vondel Park! It s easiest to catch a taxi from the airport however like I did. Most of the staff members were helpful ad assisted me with any queries I had. Great computer area downstairs and no problem with the wifi....sometimes a little weaker in the rooms. It was my first experience staying in a hostel and after backpacking in Europe later on in my travels I am still impressed with the value for money Stayokay provided. The 12 person dorm I stayed in was tidy and extremely spacious, with big lockers provided which I always look for! Big mirrors and sink with toilets and showers in the dorm. Free breakfast in the mornings was substantial however the queue always snaked down the staircase (good 40 min wait!) Easy to rent a bike also from the hostel for a day an easy to see the rest of Amsterdam. Also close to attractions/museums in the city. Great stay! Highly recommended!

    Stayokay hostel is what seemed to be one of the biggest hostels in Amsterdam. It is not in the centre but its only a 10 minute tram ride away and near loads of tourist restaurants. It was the onnly place in amsterdam when we visited that had any rooms left. there were two of us and we shared a room with 4 other people it was clean and cheap and has wifi and computers but you couldnt access the wifi from any wyhuere other then the lobby or the first floor which was stated when we first got there. our first room we stayed in there was sick in the sink which hadnt been cleaned but other wise that was the only problem. If your not keen on sharing a room with people you dont know then i wouldnt recommend it. Also one of the staff saif that if you pre book you will always get the room for cheaper. I paid 30euros the firt night and 27 euros the next night im not sure why it was less as the rooms where exactly the same. when we asked if we could stay a third night we were told it would be 32euros.
    otherwise it was just what we needed would definitely recommend it but more a for 3 or 4 people travelling together or more rather then just two.

    This place is perfectly fine but nothing special. It's not ideal for people who want to hang around the hostel, but it's just fine for people that want to go out and explore the city.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Stayokay Amsterdam Vondelpark

    Not too shabby, but REALLY HOT in the room!!!!

    from

    This was my first time staying at a hostel and it was a pretty good experience. The location is an A+. You are far enough from the red light district to feel really safe, while in the center of Liedesplein which is a lot of fun too.... and a casino is about a 3 minute walk from here. I had a 4 per room place and our window barely opened up (this was normal) but in July, I could not fall asleep because it was EXTREMELY HOT. I was downstairs in the lobby area for most of the night begging for a fan because it was too hot to sleep. I finally bought sleeping pills the next day and slept, occasionally waking up wet from sweat. Other than this problem, I enjoyed the place so I recommend staying here anytime but the summer months. Breakfast was included as well and it was buffet style (style because not much to choose) but still a great value. I recommend this only on months that aren't hot. I ended up staying elsewhere when I returned the final night to catch my flight back home the following day (It was called Luxer and it had a T.V., air, etc. for only EUR 30 more than StayOkay which I foudn worth it). Anyway - have fun !

    Unhygienische Bedingungen, Flöhe in den Betten

    from

    Ich schreibe einfach mal kurz die Tatsachen auf, auf die ich in meinem Zimmer stoßen musste:

    Very good value

    from

    A very positve experience.

    The hostel is nice and clean, the rooms are quite big and confortable, the breakfast is very rich, it is not far from the centre, close to the Van Gogh museum and in a very quiet street in the middle of Vondelpark.

    It's probably much better than most of the 2/3 stars Amsterdam's hotels but the price is more similar to a 1 star hotel!

    Great Hostel - clean & central

    from

    I had not stayed in a hostel before staying at the Vondelpark, so I was a little anxious to how it would be. However, I and the others I stayed with, were all very pleased with it as it was clean, quiet but very central.

    Good points + bad points

    from

    i had never stayed in a hostel before until this trip. I went with a group of 39 and it was super.

    Fantastic Hostel

    from

    What a great hostel.

    Stayed in a 6 bed dorm which contained its own shower and toilet. The room was clean and modern. Lockers were provided in the room but you had to supply your own lock.

    The location is good for all parts except for the redlight district which is about a 20 minute walk.

    The staff were friendly and helpful.

    Ups and downs

    from

    The best thing about this hostel is location--Leidesplein, which is very central, easy to get to on trams and from the airport, lots of restaurants and bars around here. The hostel is tucked down a side street--it is a little dark and on the side of the Vondelpark but we never felt unsafe returning, even late at night. The breakfast that is provided is quite good--many different types of breads, cheeses and meat, cereal, yogurt--so do wake up for it! And DO use the reception desk to buy tickets for attractions--the discount is not so huge, but the lines for the Van Gogh museum and Anne Frank house were around the block when we went to both, and we were able to breeze right in since we had prebought.

    Nice place to stay

    from

    A very nice place to stay. We've stayed in a room for 6 with private facilities. Everything was clean. The staff was fine and the breakfast was very good. The location is suberb, in quiet park near the center (five minutes walking from Van Gogh museum). If you don't like to walk there are several trams nearby.

    Clean and rude

    from

    I stayed in the City Hostel Vondelpark for two days. First the good: it was really clean, each room had a shower and toilet in it, and there was a very friendly guy that worked there that hooked me up with some breakfast when I showed up late. There's also an elevator which is really convenient and no curfew.

    I'm not usually a youth hosteller but....

    from

    I would never normally stay in a youth hostel but was travelling to Amsterdam with 12 friends and we couldn't get any hotel rooms for such a large group so we booked at this hostel.

    It was FANTASTIC -- much nice than may hotels I've stayed in. People were very friendly, it was very clean and the breakfast was great. The location is also superb.

    I have already booked to go again next year.
