Hostel Leidseplein is right in the middle of a great Amsterdam night life scene. Pay in cash, as there is a fee to pay with a card. You also pay a 10Euro deposit for the key, which is returned when you check out. Security at the hostel is great! Reception desk is manned 24 hours, so they're always there if you need them. The staff are very helpful and offer a great map of Amsterdam with recommendations and directions. Breakfast is simple, as it is at most hostels, but it's free!

The staff was very friendly. They did everything to make our stay comfortable. We booked a shared room but got a private room for the same price. The location is great.

Great location. The staff was very helpful, there was some confusion about our beds and the manager came right back to straighten everything out. The stairs are pretty steep and the climb up is slightly pain in the ass. The bathroom was not the best, the shower floods and it was a little grimy. The location is perfect, right in city centre, easy walking distance to everything you could want in the city. 20 min walk max to get where you want to be in the city.

Worst hostel I ever. It takes a lot to say that about a place. But this hostel fails on every level.unfriendly and unhelpful staff...well the owner is the same so I guess that's where it comes from. DIRTY no clean linen, dorms smell of rotting human flesh, bathroom floors flooded with water and whatever else, no lockers

Each room has it's own bathroom, but it wasn't clean... besides that, the hostel is nice :)

Good value for money! Bathroom could have been cleaner but for only one night we couldn't complain!

The first thing to impress me about the hostel was how easy it was to find. The hostel is in the center of a great selection of bars and coffee shops, with a busy tram intersection that makes getting around easy. The staff was immediately friendly and accommodating, which made me feel very welcome. The beds were always clean and comfortable and although there weren't lockers in the rooms, the front desk allowed you to check in any valuables for no extra cost. Overall, a great place to stay!

The hostel is nothing special but fulfils the basic needs. I got a pre made bed and clean showers and toilet. The breakfast is very plain ( untoasted toast-bread with jam and peanut butter and unlimited coffee/tea). The staff was always friendly and helpful. The location is very load but with earplugs I had a good sleep. I stayed there over new years and the prices were immoral high (you could at least changed the check out time for that day). I checked the normal prices and they are OK.

It's is defiantly for the budget backpacker. Find something nice if you can. But it does the job.

Not a nice place. Very dirty, especially the bathrooms and dorms. Okay location, on a street with lots of bars, but it made it very loud at night. Not horrible but not pleasant, I'd choose to pay more for somewhere nicer next time I'm in Amsterdam.

I stayed there on Thursday and Friday. Although Thursday was really cheap (around 6 euros), Friday was really unworth it. It costed me nearly 40 euros. The bathroom in our room was really dirty after the first day. They have breakfast but it is nearly unexistent. It definitely does not make up for the rest.

SO MANY STAIRS. You can use their microwave to make your own food. Cool people chilling in the lounge. Luggage room, staff actually pays attention to who's taking what luggage in there. Dorm rooms are cool to chill in. Leidseplein is a great place to stay - many bars, restaurants, coffee shops, easy walk to anywhere. Check out Rookies, and make sure you get pancakes across the street from the hostel. Bathroom is less than ideal: shared toilet and shower, shower spills water on floor.

These guys do the very best with what they have. The old building has spacious rooms with good ventilation that are extremely relaxing and nice when you just lay back after a wild Amsterdam day, or night. The staff seems hand-picked as people who care about your comfort and stay--something you absolutely do not find at most hostels and those rates. Throw in some carbos and coffee for breakfast, and the amazing leidsepleine outside the door, this place is sweet. Just bleach well daily guys!
