Property Information:

INTERNATIONAL BUDGET HOSTEL CITY CENTER is beautifully situated in the heart of the city centre in the Leidseplein (Leidse Square) area. Leidseplein is the most famous nightlife area in Amsterdam. The location of the hostel is on a quiet, beautiful canal - the Leidsegracht.

Rooms are shared mixed from triples and quads to five- and six-person rooms. Each hallway has showers and WCs.

Our hostel, set in a former 17th-century warehouse, has a cosy lounge facing the canal where one can relax and socialize and meet other fellow travellers. Breakfast is not included in the room price but is available in the lounge between 9am and 12 noon. The lounge has vending machines, a television, an internet station and a public phone. Free Wi-Fi is available in the entire hostel. We are placed in a old monumental building with no elevators, just steep stairs.
We also have a house cat (which does no harm at all) who just stays in our lounge area and does not come in the rooms.

The hostel is a few minutes from the famous Van Gogh Museum, beautiful Dam Square, the entertaining Red light district, relaxing Vondelpark, historical Anne Frank House and the best clubs, coffee shops, bars and restaurants and many more great places.

The staff can provide you with great ideas to spend your time in Amsterdam. If you're interested in renting a bike we're happy to organise this for you.

Due to the new non-smoking law which is introduced since July 1st 2008, smoking is not permitted in the hostel. The entire hostel has smoke detectors. There is video security in all public areas.

We are pleased to announce our new indoor smoking room, where you can chill out, socialize, and smoke in comfort looking out over Amsterdam's beautiful canals. The rest of the hostel remains smoke free

Please read our T&Cs below.

The reservation will be terminated if the hostel does not get authorization on the credit card.

    It was an okay hostel. It is kind of sketchy, but I never felt unsafe there. The beds are comfy, the facilities clean. Very steep steps!!
