Participants can choose to stay at the Amsterdam based Stayokay Amsterdam Zeeburg hostel. This modern, recently fully renovated hostel is located in a quiet, typical Amsterdam neighborhood. Dutch National Opera & Ballet is less than 15 minutes away by bike or by tram (direct connection).

Stayokay Amsterdam Zeeburg has its own café-restaurant where a breakfast buffet and a three-course dinner are served daily. The cooks use only fresh – and if possible organic – ingredients and serve healthy and varied meals. The kitchen can cater for most of the more common dietary restrictions (vegetarian, gluten-free, lactose free, et cetera). Stayokay shares the premises with a number of interesting neighbors, which means that there is always plenty to do, should you have any energy left after a hard day’s work at the theater. For instance, the Studio K café and cinema is right around the corner.

The hostel carries an ECO-label and has a 100% no-smoking policy. Alcohol is available, but only for guests over 18 years old (ID mandatory). Free WiFi is included. A laundromat, bicycle rental, sweets machine, soft drinks machine, ice machine, ticket sales (public transport, Van Gogh Museum, Rijksmuseum and canal cruises) are available.

You can apply for the Stayokay Package Deal when filling out the application form. Due to a limited amount of available rooms, we advise students to reserve a place as soon as possible.
