Hostelworld says

Hostelworld guests tell us that International Budget Hostel offers good value for price and location because it’s ‘on the beautiful Prinsengracht canal and is easily accessible by tram from Centraal Station’. Our reviewers have said this hostel is ‘just one minute from Leidseplein and real close to everywhere’, in a neighbourhood ‘full of restaurants and shops’. They also say they’d recommend this hostel to friends for their ‘spotless’ facilities and helpful, enthusiastic staff. We like that this hostel rents bikes, an essential method of transport in Amsterdam.

The staff was really nice. But the beds are small, the shower as well. Just a little expensive based on the place.

It’s a bed. That’s about it. Not bad with that’s all you need! 1 toilet and 1 shower per room. No common area accept the smoking room! Probably the worst thing about it. There’s a pop up club downstairs which is very loud till at least 2am. Staff was great tho and location was beautiful. Beds were clean and comfy enough. If I’m in the city I would probably stay again but only for a place to sleep

International Budget Hostel says

Estamos en un edificio tradicional a orillas del canal y al lado de Leidseplein, una de las principales zonas de ocio y vida nocturna de Amsterdam. En un paseo de 10 minutos puedes encontrar algunos de los principales museo de la ciudad, como la Casa de Ana Frank, el museo Van Gogh y el Rijksmuseum. En 15 minutos andando estás en el corazón del Barrio Rojo. Si es un día caluroso, el Vondelpark es un sitio maravilloso para pasar el rato, y si buscas originales souvenirs te recomiendo visitar el Mercado de las Flores. Ofrecemos a nuestros huéspedes la oportunidad de reservar algunos tours, como rutas gratuitas a pie por la ciudad, excursiones en bicicleta y rutas por los bares. También alquilamos bicicletas para los huéspedes. Prestamos mucha atención a los detalles y la higiene es una prioridad para nosoros. Al ser un hostal no hay mucho lujo, pero sin duda te encontrarás una cama y una ducha limpias.
