Welcome to our hostel

Stayokay Amsterdam Stadsdoelen is set on one of the city's oldest canals, bang in the middle of vibrant Amsterdam and besides bars, restaurants and shops. Nearby you will find theatres, cinemas and museums, as well as the famous Red Light District.

The hostel is in a monumental building facing canals on both sides, giving stunning views over old Amsterdam from most rooms, and during your stay you can enjoy Wi-Fi and no curfew so you can enjoy the famous Leidseplein and Rembrandtplein nightlife in the city that never sleeps.

Amsterdam Stadsdoelen is within walking distance of the Royal Palace and Waterloo Square (which has a daily flea market) and is close to a water bus stop so you can discover the city from the canals. The hostel also offers discounted tickets for museums, canal tours and attractions, in addition to free daily walking tours.

We sell padlocks and towels at the reception, the price is €4.50 each.

Lockers before check-in en after check-out are available at €0.20 per hour or €2.- per 24 hours.

City tax of €1,- per person per night at check in.

Breakfast at the hostel? Try our Grab&Go: you can order 3 items for € 5,50. How about a cheese sandwich, a fresh smoothie and a cappuccino? Would you prefer something else? Check the menu in our hostel.

Every set of clean bedding is wrapped in plastic which becomes plastic garbage. How abour reusable bungee or disposable paper ribbon instead?

Dear Erica, Thank you to take time to answer us, sustainability is a big concern for us and the plastic which wraps the linnen is daily collected and sent to the linnen company to be recycled! Hope to see you again in Amsterdam, kind regards, Franck Front office supervisor

I was not particularly impressed by the booking/check in system. Having requested a lower bed when initially booking and sending a reminder/check request 3 days prior to arrival, I was dismayed to be told by the girl on the desk that no lower bed was available, the place was full, my emails had either not been forwarded or deleted and there was no alternative. After a lady from a back office came, looked at the computer, asked if was Mrs Sears and was told I was not, a lower bed was available. The girl said she was new (therefore inexperienced?), and although the situation was resolved I could have done without the "what shall we do?" stuff.

My bunk was on the main floor, but the toilets and showers were 2 flights up. I had to walk through the reception area to use that toilet. Not good. Mirrors in my dorm were about 24 inches above my head. Not good. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Trams were too far for me to be convenient. My bed was comfortable. I would not return to this hostel .

Dear Frances, We are glad to hear that you found our staff friendly and helpful and that your bed was comfortable. We are sorry that you were not informed well enough about the toilets that we have at reception, so guests don't need to go upstairs except for taking a shower. We will share your concerns about our hostel so hopefully we can offer a better stay if you decide to give us a second chance. In any case, we hope that you had a great time in Amsterdam. Kind regards, Rafael Tirado FO Supervisor

Not sure what the colour codes mean. Seems silly. All aspects very good apart from... I shouldn't have to remind those on the desk to take off my HI discount. The new breakfast not as good as the old one.

Dear Gordon, Thank you for taking time to write this review. We are really that you gave us such a good rating! We would like to clarify that we can't give the HI discount automatically, as we need to check that our guests actually have the HI card and that it has not expired before we apply the discount. We hope that you had a wonderful time during your stay with us and hope to host you again in the future. Kind regards, Rafael Tirado FO Supervisor
