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, free breakfast and no curfew so you can enjoy the famous Leidseplein 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.

The location is great. Suggest to keep the pub opened until late (nowadays it closes at 11:00PM) and to install a power outlet on every bed (my room of 14 people just had 1 outlet).

This was my first time staying in a hostel and thanks to a brilliant stay I would definitely do so again. Location was very central so everything was accessible, staff were real friendly and super helpful. All facilities were clean, beds comfortable. Good breakfast service. 10/10 would stay again.

Budget meal tip

Salads and sushi from Albert Hein Supermarket at Nieuwmarkt. Food at the hostel bar is also good and not expensive.
