Really enjoyed it - excellent smoking room (which is difficult to find). Very nice staff. Really good value for money. Literally my only complaint about the whole stay would be keep the smoking room open later than 2am! Thanks, will recommend.

Good hostel with good facilities. It gives good facilities for the value and it is in the right place. However you have to pay for the breakfast and to lock your luggage.

I came alone. The atmosphere of this hostel makes every customers very open, I made friends there easily and had good time in Amsterdam with new people I didn't know before. Very cheap, it's definitely THE place to sleep when you travel alone.

International Budget Hostel I stayed here many times before, first choice when i want to stay at a hostel, close to Leidseplein. A Good place to go out if your in Amsterdam. Four Italian places, that serves all pizza and pasta, 5 Euro. its usually around double price other places. Excellent smoking room, like your living room with couple of vending machines. Microwaves my food if i ask :) WiFi works good in rooms.

By far the best hostel I have stayed in so far, the staff and the facilities made for a very comfortable stay. The smoking area also made good sense , I met and spoke with many happy travelers and like minded soles here. If I'm in Amsterdam and need a bed, I shall be back.

The location is great, staff was friendly, free wifi all over the place, clean sheets, nice smoking room.. On the flipside, shower was broken and wasn't working (a temporary problem obviously), and there were some mice spotted in our room which I guess somewhat inevitable being in an old building next to canal. There was a black cat though, so probably he is keeping them mice under control :)

The value for money is quite fair. the location of the hostel is good - about 20 minutes walk from red light district, close to things and right in the middle of the lovely canals. there are lockers in the rooms, which is good. the smoking room is a really good area - not all hostels have it, and its a plus! the cleanliness is not very good... the room smelled and the toilets were not really nice. but then again, its good value for money! its quite cheap and has positive stuff!

- Great location - close to all pubs/ clubs / restaurants - not a real hostel vibe, however there is a lounge you can meet other travelers (NB in amsterdam there isnt a real hostel vibe as people are always on the move, or stoned) - rooms OK - beds were spongy - Stay here if you are in Amsterdam for a few days, want to be in the centre and are going to be out and about the whole time other positives - bath gel provided, and resident cat is cool.

Overpriced but a decent 2 night stay

If you, like me, go out during the night and would like to sleep a bit longer during the day, this is not the place. It was impossible to sleep from around 9am cause you're able to hear everything. Also there is absolutely nothing included in the price (towels, locks, city tax etc. have to be paid extra).

Dear malwina In our conditiona you see before you book that towels and city tax not included in the room we dont tell you this after you book it but before.

No kitchen, but besides that we had a great stay. Great smoking room which overlooks the canel, cheap vending machines, smallish TV should get bigger. Got some bored games free to play and the rooms are pretty chilled. Would reccomended to anyone who looking to visit the coffeeshops and smoke, very good hostel!

The shower water last just 3 second and cold!!!! Imagine every second while you are covered with foam and need to find button every 3 second. Horrible shower here and even cold! Other than that, it is okay.

Let's see, where to begin... the doors all stuck, so they had to be yanked open which was so loud that it would wake everyone up. The Wifi broke halfway through our stay and they didn't do anything about it or refund any of the money. The last two days the lights in the room had burned out and were never fixed, so that we had to get around with a flashlight. Nothing but stoned college kids, and if you have valuables, stay somewhere else!

Sweet hostel with really friendly staff. Very social smoking room makes it easy to meet new people and the close location to Leidseplein makes it easy to go out and get back home in the early hours. Would defiantly recommend.
