Stray Notebook Locations [Step By Step With Pictures]

Our guide talks about how to find all four Notebooks in Stray.

Stray lets you take control of a Cat, and you need to survive in a mysterious world. There is plenty of stuff that you can do in the game, such as collecting Notebooks. And since it can get quite difficult to find all four of them in Stray, we have decided to create a Notebook locations guide through which you can acquire all of them quickly.

Key Takeaways
  • The 4 notebooks belong to 4 robots, Momo, Doc, Clementine, and Zbaltazar and they contain information on how to get in touch with the outside world.
  • The first notebook belongs to Momo and it is accessible from Momo’s apartment found above the Super Spirit Laundry place.
  • The second notebook belongs to Zbaltazar found inside the building with the Outsiders logo that is on the left of Momo’s balcony.
  • The third notebook belongs to Doc and his apartment is found on the rooftop with a sofa with a vending machine beside it.
  • The final notebook belongs to Clementine and it’s inside the building that B-12 tells you about.
  • After acquiring all the notebooks, you will have to go back to Momo, and after giving him the books he will award you with a transceiver which is also a collectible.

All Notebook Locations In Stray

Here’s a quick overview of every Notebook Location in Stray:

1Momo's NotebookGiven by Momo inside his apartment
2Zbaltazar’s NotebookEnter Zbaltar's apartment through roof and find it among the pile of boxes
3Doc’s NotebookInside a safe in the L and M sections of the bookshelf in Doc's apartment
4Clementine’s NotebookInside Clementine's apartment next to a computer on the table

The Outsiders have only one purpose; to reach the outside world. They have written important information about how to get in touch with the outside world in their Notebooks, and your job is to go and get them. However, all four of them can be challenging for some players, as they are hidden in different places.

To help you out, we will talk about each Notebook’s location so that you don’t waste your time climbing the wrong roofs and entering the wrong alleys.

Getting the first Notebook in Stray is a breeze the robot Momo’s got it. You’ll find his apartment above Super Spirit Laundry, situated on the right side of the Slums. Look out for the massive yellow neon sign which is hard to miss.

To access the apartment, climb up Dufer Bar next to it, head toward the neon sign, and enter the first Notebook location in Stray. Momo will chat with you, hand over the first Notebook, and suggest you find the other three to tackle the issue. He spills the beans that the remaining Notebooks are in tall buildings sporting an Outsiders logo

Second Notebook

Now that you have gotten your hands on the first Notebook, it’s time to go after the second one. While the first one was pretty easy to get, this one isn’t. In the Slums you will be able to see a tall building with the Outsiders logo placed behind metal railings. This is the building where you can find Zbaltazar’s Notebook.

Go past the robots playing with paint cans and then climb all the way up to the roof of the building with the Outsiders logo. After reaching the roof, you will see that there is a hole that you can use to drop down to the apartment.

Make sure to stop the fan first and then proceed into the apartment. After the fan has stopped spinning, you can jump down into the apartment using the hole.

After making your way inside the apartment, you will find a couple of boxes piled up. Start jumping on the boxes to make them fall over, and one of them will eventually drop the Zbaltazar’s Notebook on the floor. Once you have added Zbaltazar’s Notebook to your inventory, it’s time to find a way out.

Third Notebook

You will now need to go after Doc’s Notebook. The third Notebook can be found inside Doc’s apartment. For this, you will need to go back to the rooftops and then go past the robots playing with paint cans again. You need to keep going forward until you find a rooftop with a sofa on top of it. 

If you look at the front of the Sofa, you will see an Outsider sign on a building behind it. This is Doc’s apartment. After you make your way inside the apartment, you will find rows of books everywhere.

Inside the apartment, you need to enter a room found on the right side of the entrance. Inside this room, you will find a note from the librarian, which will reveal that there is a safe hidden behind a bunch of books. You will also pick up keys along with the note, which you can use to unlock the safe.

After picking up the keys, exit the room, go left, and then take the first right. Here, you will find a stack of books under the L and M sections. You need to jump on these books and knock them over.

This will reveal the safe hidden behind them, and you can use the keys to open it. You can then pick up Doc’s Notebook from inside the safe. Talking about safes, you might want to check out our guide on how to find and unlock the Mysterious Safe password in Stray

Finally, coming down to the fourth and final Notebook location in Stray. To find it, you will need to make your way inside Clementine’s apartment.

Clementine’s apartment is located inside the first building B-12 will point out to you. You can find it by going to the rooftops from Doc’s apartment and heading right. Clementine’s apartment has a big open window with the Outsider’s logo painted on the wall next to it. So it’s pretty hard to miss it.

After you use the window to get inside Clementine’s apartment, make your way to the back of the apartment through the door in front of you. Then, go left, and you will find Clementine’s office. You will be able to find the fourth Notebook on the table, next to a computer.

Once you have managed to reach the four Notebook locations and have picked all of them in Stray, it’s time to return to Momo. We already mentioned earlier that Momo’s apartment is the one with the huge yellow neon sign. 

After you give the four Notebooks to Momo, he will try to fix the transceiver. However, while the transceiver will start working, you won’t be able to get any signals in the Slums. Therefore, your next journey will involve traveling to the Zurk. 

This marks the end of our Stray Notebook locations guide. As you can see for yourself, finding the first Notebook isn’t a challenging task, but the other three will have you traveling different rooftops. However, by using your guide, you can find all four Notebooks quickly.

An important thing to remember is that you can not skip collecting the Notebooks, as you can not progress through the story without them.
