Staying on Texel

Texel is the largest Wadden Island in the Netherlands with plenty of entertainment for young and old. Cycling, walking, sunbathing or visiting one of the charming villages. You are guaranteed to have fun here!

In the hostel

You can feel the relaxed atmosphere as soon as you enter Stayokay Texel. The holiday has begun! The hostel is spacious and has several cozy lounge areas. Book a private room or shared room, with private bathroom. Enjoy a delicious breakfast in the morning which is included in the price. And the kids? Don't worry, they enjoy themselves on the lawn and in the playground.

By the way, did you know that sustainability is a priority here? Of all the Frisian Islands, Texel is the sunniest, which is why there are solar panels on the roof! If you come with an electric car, you can charge it at one of the charging stations in the car park. Our smallest guests are also welcome. Next to the hostel you will find the Bee-okay: our own bee ho(s)tel!

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.
