Stayokay Amsterdam Vondelpark

Overview: Stayokay belongs to Hostelling International and operates 30 hostels in the Netherlands. This unique park-side location is quite big, offering 536 beds in private and dorm-style rooms. Enjoy the convenience of on-site bike rental and the all-ages community feel and this top-rated hostel.

Location: Northwestern edge of Vondelpark; five-minute walk to canal belt; five-minute walk to trams.

Ideal for: Young travelers and families on a budget who want to be near attractions but not in a loud area typical for hostels.

Prices: From €23 per person.

The Flying Pig Uptown Hostel Amsterdam

Overview: Like Stayokay Vondelpark, this hostel has an atypical location in an upscale residential neighborhood. But while the Uptown Pig is tamer than its infamous city-center location, it still attracts a younger crowd looking for that buzzing backpacker hostel atmosphere (more so than Stayokay).

Location: Northeastern edge of Vondelpark; 10-minute walk to canal belt; five-minute walk to trams.

Ideal for: Young travelers on a budget.

Prices: €15 for dorm bed; €32 for double/twin room.
