You can stain un-finished Bamboo like any other type of wood, (bamboo stains like hard maple, its difficult, but can be done) Bamboo will accepts normal stains, water based, oil based swedish stains, and even natural oil an waxes.

staining bamboo is not difficult as one can wipe on a stain ( I used water-based stain for easy cleanup), and wipe it off and it is done. very little effort for beautiful results. the next time I stain bamboo I am going to use one of the color/poly combinations and let you know how that works.

How you removed bad stain from your bamboo flooring?

I'm afraid there are no good solutions. The best option would probably be to very precisely use wood bleach on the stain. Now the stain will be a bleached out spot - then using sample pieces of bleached bamboo find the correct stain or mixture of stains to replicate the color of the rest of the floor. Using a fine grade of sandpaper, you would then sand the area and attempt to blend the top-coat finish. Unless you are very patient, meticulous, and skilled, there will always be a blemish.
