The Hostelz.com Review

If you're after a quiet, super clean hostel for a relaxing night in, then HI - Stayokay Den Haag (The Hague) Hostel is the place for you.

The Location

The hostel is located an easy, ten-minute walk from the Deb Haag Hollands Spoor train station. The directions provided by the hostel are fairly accurate and the hostel is easy to find as it is located behind The Hague Tower. Otherwise if you are coming from Deb Haag Central, it is about a fifteen-minute walk out of town. There is a supermarket located fairly close to the hostel, otherwise the city centre is only fifteen minutes' walk and there are ample supermarkets and nice restaurants to choose from.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The dorm rooms as well as the whole hostel overall is very clean. Some of the dorm rooms have en suites with double sinks, which is great if you are sharing with a group of girls. The beds come with linen supplied, and each of the beds have an individual power point for charging your electronics and also a bed light. The Wi-Fi is free, with a very strong connection; it also works in the rooms. Showers are hot, and the water pressure is not bad. There is also a shelf in the shower upon which to place your belongings. The en suites in the dorm rooms are a separate toilet/shower combination, which is awesome if someone is taking forever in the shower! The rooms are spacious and the windows can be opened.

Common Spaces

There is a large dining area/common, but no kitchen available for guest use -- the only negative of this hostel. There is a bar, foosball table. Despite this, the atmosphere is still a little sterile although an improvement on most other HI hostels. If you are a solo traveler this is a difficult place to make new friends, so this may just be a place to quietly chill. The breakfast is top rate -- organic coffee from an actual coffee machine, cold cuts, eggs, and all the usual cereals and breads. If you are looking for lunch, the hostel kitchen can prepare you a take-away lunch pack. This is especially great if you're considering hiring a bike from the hostel and riding out to the nearby beach. There are also vending machines in the hostel. Free luggage storage is also available.

Summary

The hostel is great for relaxing, clean and quiet -- everything you could want in a non-party hostel!

Great place
Excellent hostel even by stayokay standards, had a great bar area down stairs which was packed every night during my stay. Staff were extremely helpful at all times, breakfast was good for hostel standard. Location was also excellent, no more than 15 minutes walk from central Den Haag. Well worth staying at if visiting the Hague.

Excellent
Very near the train station but a little far from the city centre (ten-minute walk, or so). Seemed like a slightly dodgy neighbourhood. Great buffet breakfast! Fun little bar on the main floor, and helpful staff. Dorm rooms were spacious with lockers, and a table and chairs. Internet cafe nearby and more expensive internet in the hostel.

  Exceptionally clean and comfortable. Fantastic breakfast included (mmm, hazelnut/chocolate spread). Friendly and helpful staff. Close to the rail station for trams and trains. We spent most of our time at the beach and in Delft.

  Clean and spacious, but nothing like the hostels you'll find in Amsterdam. Smoking marijuana wasn't even allowed. Seems like more of a hostel for sheltered youth groups.

  In many ways this hostel reflected the high standards of the other Stayokay hostels in the Netherlands. I slept in a four-person dorm, with a private bathroom. This hostel had good facilities, such as bars and lounges, and a good breakfast was provided. It was clean, bright and spacious. However, there were many downsides. It was the most expensive hostel I have ever stayed in and was far more expensive than the hostels in Rotterdam, Haarlem and Amsterdam. It's well out of the town center, and as a lone female traveler I didn't enjoy sharing a mixed dorm with a couple having sex all night. I might have enjoyed it more if they offered female-only dorms.

  I stayed at the Stayokay in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague — and the The Hague was the best. It was safe and clean. There was a shower in the room (an eight-female dorm), and the hostel is in a nice location, near the Holland Spoor train station. It has a very friendly staff, a lovely breakfast and a nice bar. Unfortunately, the Internet is very expensive!! But the place is great anyway. :)

  This is a fine, big hostel. It has comfortable bunks in clean dorms, a friendly staff, and a good small restaurant and bar. It's in a handy enough location. It's cheap, too. This is a good place to stay if you are heading to Den Haag.
