jenniesue The Stayokay Haarlem was very clean and comfortable. The rooms were quite large and modern. The bathrooms were clean and ensuite. Public areas consisted of a bar (that never had anyone in it) and a large breakfast room with a great breakfast buffet. The main drawback of the Stayokay Haarlem was the location. It is a good way outside of Haarlem, and you need transportation of some kind to reach it. The bus sytem is easy to use and stops right outside the hostel. The hostel also has bicycles to rent for a cheap daily price, which makes getting around easier. There are no surrounding restaurants or bars within close walking distance. But for the price it was a good value and I would definitely stay there again.
carol.vanderzee Beds were fine and there was enough clean linen and towels, but the kitchen wasn't great. The drawers were rather messy and not clean at all. There was no dining room table to eat on. The bathroom facilities were reasonable. We were a bit annoyed as we had somehow booked an extra night and when asked whether we could change it, no one was available and they didn't phone us back as promised. That meant we paid for an extra night plus taxes. The place is conveniently situated if you own a car. For a family it was OK.
