Wake up in the middle of nature! Get up early to explore the protected nature reserve, including red deer and wild boar. Mountain bikers, climbers, riders, even sailors, can enjoy the Veluwe too.
In the hostel
Stayokay Apeldoorn has all the facilities you need within reach. Enjoy a drink in our bar or stop by our restaurant for a hearty breakfast, a delicious lunch or an extensive dinner. The hostel is located in the middle of the woods, but just a 10 minute bike ride and you're in the centre of the city. Did you know that this hostel has its own beehives, and that we produce our own honey? We also separate waste, work with local products, and we have our own herb garden in the summer season.
Top tip: stay in your own tiny house! The Wikkelhouse is made of sustainable cardboard and suitable for 4 people. This cottage can be found on our wooded grounds and has everything you need for a relaxing holiday.
From Apeldoorn station take bus 6, get off at the Mandala stop or take bus 7 and get off at the Chamavenlaan stop. Backtrack 100 m to the hostel.
It is also possible to take a "train taxi" from the station.
The hostel is located on the west side of Apeldoorn. From the ring road first follow the signs to Apenheul, take the exit to the hostel at the Asselsestraat / Laan van Spitsbergen intersection. Take the right after 100m.
The hostel has its own (free) car park.
Local hot spots

And of course you can't leave Apeldoorn without a day of watching monkeys in Apenheul!
