Staying at the Veluwe

In this huge protected nature reserve, nature has free rein! Spot the Dutch big five while you are mountainbiking or hiking. Apeldoorn is not only known for its beautiful nature, but also has a cozy city centre and plenty of outings in store for you.

In the hostel

Stayokay Apeldoorn is located in the middle of the woods. Stay in a private or shared room with your own bathroom. A nice breakfast is included and you can also enjoy lunch or dinner in our restaurant. Our bar is a nice place to meet other travellers.

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 a sustainable cottage suitable for 4 people. This cottage can be found on our wooded grounds and has everything you need for a relaxing holiday.

Reviews are important. For you and for us. It helps you to make the right choice and helps us to learn. That is why we post reviews on external (booking) sites on our own website.

Guests receive an email after their stay to leave a review. The scores are calculated by means of an analysis of the written review and are based on the past 12 months. Written reviews are summarised because we cannot show them in full due to copyright issues. But positive or negative, we post them all. We do not pay for reviews and fake reviews are reported.
