International Budget Hostel gets you right into the heart of Amsterdam, but its spot by a quiet canal brings the best of both worlds. We're not short on atmosphere here – you'll be staying in a former 17th century warehouse (it'll look fantastic on your social feeds, we promise). Take a minute in our snug lounge, which is open 24 hours and faces the canal for ultimate people watching. Grab yourself a treat from the vending machine and catch a movie or sports game on TV with your new travel pals.


You’ll find us in Leidseplein Square, surrounded by hip cafés, bars and restaurants. This is the most famous area of Amsterdam for nightlife, so hit up some happy hour specials to give your wallet a break. We’re well-connected when it comes to transport links, too – the Leidseplein bus station is just a 3-minute walk away, and you can jump on to reach the airport in 30 minutes. If you're craving some culture, we’re just 15 minutes by foot from the Van Gogh Museum and a 13-minute stroll from the Anne Frank House.

Rooms and Dorms

When it comes to rooms, choose a triple or quad private if you’re travelling in a group. Not only do they have twinkling city views, but also quirky touches like railway clocks and suitcase-bedecked wallpaper. Mixed dorms feature ultra-cool exposed brick and let you get to know your fellow travellers. Linen's included, and there are showers and toilets in every hallway so you won’t need to queue (hooray!).

Extras and activities

Need travel tips? Pop down to our 24-hour reception desk to ask the friendly staff your questions. We can recommend activities or sort out a bike rental so you can explore the city like a local. There’s free Wi-Fi throughout the hostel and free computers so you can Skype your family and friends (and make them jealous, obviously).

    Could not have been better located. Helpful staff, wifi was available all over the hostel, nice bed, bathrooms were super clean. Stored my luggage after checkout. Very steep stairs, but this is something you will find everywhere in the canals.

    Location is good for the whole of Amsterdam. It's pretty central and walkable to the city centre, museums and sites. It's about a 20 minute walk to the red light district. The girls on the day time reception where extremely friendly and helpful. Facilities are basic and there was a fridge and microwave. Overall our experience was great!

    Very secure with locks on front door and rooms. Also secure lockers in room. 20 minutes walking from most major sites and close to trains. Staff was helpful. Only small issue was tiny shower rooms but overall would recommend

    I've stayed in the hostel for only one night, and it was a pretty good stay. The rooms are okay (bunkbed), there are sockets, a lot of things are provided or can be purchased (like towels for 2€). The shower was it bit weird, because you had to place your clothes and towel in a common part, because they would get wet if you take them with you in the shower... But I would recommend the hostel.

    Everything was cleaner than I expected, and all basics are in place. But doors are extremely noisy and spaces are a bit tight to squeeze by others.

    Very Good

    Great location, clean and lovely staff. However, the shower facilities are very annoying, small (felt claustrophobic) and there is no where to put dry clothes or even your towel whilst showering where they won’t get wet. Also not the best atmosphere, so it would be hard to meet others if travelling solo.

    The staff was very nice and the location as well. But the bathrooms and showers were most of the times very dirty and there were only two located on each floor. Beds were uncomfortable. All in all we expected more for that price. Too expensive for the low standard.

    DO NOT STAY HERE. This was the most cramped hostel space we have ever experienced. 20'x10' room with four bunks (eight beds). One tiny window at the far end of the room. No circulation. 30°C+. It was unbearable, we got up after an hour and walked the streets to avoid sleeping in the room. We paid for another place for the rest of our stay. Int'l Budget Hostel refused any refund. YOU WILL REGRET STAYING HERE.
