Participants can choose to stay at the Amsterdam based Stayokay Amsterdam Oost hostel. This modern, recently fully renovated hostel is located in a quiet, typical Amsterdam neighborhood. The Chassé Dance Studios are about 35 minutes away by tram. Stayokay Amsterdam Oost 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 studios. For instance, the Studio K café and cinema is right around the corner.

We offer the following Accommodation Package for the ESB Winter School:

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.
