Nestled in a hollow in the dunes where you might not expect it, you’ll find Stayokay Ameland. A small path takes you to the hostel, surrounded by woods, dunes and plenty of land. This is the perfect hostel for anyone who longs for space.

Stayokay Ameland features a wooden bar with plenty of seating, a restaurant with an old sailboat serving as the buffet table, a sun room and three buildings featuring modern, comfortable, en suite rooms. There is a large athletics field and playground in the middle of the spacious grounds, just right for kicking around a football or swinging.

Ameland is located along a 27 kilometre stretch of white sand coast. A haven for more than 60 species of birds, this is a great spot for wildlife enthusiasts. There are also a number of museums which trace the history of this unusual destination. Don’t miss a visit to the lighthouse at Hollum – just 200 metres away from the hostel.
