Amazing staff and host!! Always very helpful and friendly. Great location.


The staff was really kind and gentle. Although the hostel is situated in a busy street of Amsterdam so I couldn't sleep as it was really noise.

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.

Very very very very very very noisy


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.


Very well located! haha but the breakfast could improve!


Great location and very very very friendly staff!! The rooms were decorated all the time differently which is great! Thank you Hostel Leidseplein for a wonderful weekend in Amsterdam ^^

Good location and very nice staff, but unfortunately, for the rest, it is one of the worst hostel we've stayed. The bathroom was always dirty. They have a cat, and don't advertise it, which is very bad if you are allergic. The breakfast is very poor: untoasted bread with peanut butter. The hostel is very noisy.


great location! one bathroom per room can mean a long wait

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 :)
