the variety of travelers staying at the hotel/hostel.
the night staff didn't know how to let me into my room when the card reader failed.
Well organised, clean and tidy.
Staff at reception could be more professional and polite, not chatting among themselves while checking people in - instead try talking to the guest.
very well located. Bike rent service is very convenient.
wait 10-15min for check-in. chocolate which is sold at the reception tastes not very good.
I really appreciated the cleansiness of the room. I wasn't expecting this for a hostel. The breakfast was also outstanding.
I was a little bit harder to find, but close to the hostel the directions were indicated well. It's a little bit further away from the center than I was used to, but still walking distance. Also right next to the Vondelpark which would be nice if it wasn't raining.
The rooms were large and clean. We were 6 people traveling together, so the personal shower and toilet for our 6-person room was very convenient. a maid even came to empty the trash for us. The hostel is also located near the main road Leidseplein, which has a lot of interesting shops and a lot of activity and leads you to the center of town. great breakfast: buffet style with hard-boiled eggs, meats, bread, yogurt, cereal, fruit.
The fee for internet use was too high (1.5 euro for 15 minutes, 3 euro for 1 hour). Furthermore, since the hostel has a limited number of internet access codes, some days it was impossible to buy the 1 hour of internet and we had to instead to buy the must worse deal, the 1.5 euro for 15 minutes.
the area and the breakfast
Why the gruop can use free space to keep their luggage? And I have to pay for that. Most of stayokay I stayed is free for keeping luggage. When I arrived earier, I have to wait for checking in
-Location of the hostel was great: 15 minutres walking distance to museums and nice shopping area. -Breakfast was very good. A real Dutch experience.
-The hostel rents lockers for 0.20 cent per hour. I think that this should be free for the guests who want to store their luggage until check-in or late departure after check-out. -Having bathroom and toilet in the room can both be handy and disturbing depending on the people you are sharing your room with.
