We booked this hostel on hostelworld.com in Amsterdam when another booking fell through, but we quickly found another hostel we would rather stay in. We called Leidseplein and were reliably informed by someone named Leo that we would not have to pay the full stay (as in terms for late cancellations) and that we would need to email to confirm...

I wish I had read the reviews before staying here. A couple hours after we checked in, the guy working there told us the shower broke and he didn't know how to fix it. The bathroom was flooded so it was disgusting and unsafe to even use the toilet. Then, at 4 am, the same guy working there barged into... More

They charged me twice and only refunded my money after a week. Staff member came in and stole my phone as I showered in on suit. They come in without knocking. One staff member came in to mop the floor at 8pm Really sketchy group of staff.

The staff was rude and inconsiderate and even a bit sketch. It was over priced for the quality of stay. There was one light bulb in the room and the bathroom was disgusting! I will never stay there again and wont recommend it to anyhow. Not worth it even tho the location was prime.

I think is a great place to stay, but if you really want to sleep don't stay here. Too many noises for the pubs outside, all night long! But there is a cool living room where you can watch the city. Leave your baggage in the reception, the stairs are horrible!

By far one of the worst places I've ever stayed. The room had mould growing over it, there was no ventilation so it was unbearable to sleep during hot nights. There was one working socket between 10 beds in the room, you'd get more comfort sleeping on concrete than on the mattresses. The 'free breakfast' consisted of stale brown bread... More

1 working plug socket for a 12 bed dorm. not ideal. absolutely disgraceful living quarters, you'd be hard pushed to leave it in a worse state than you found it.... luckily was only there on business so was a means to an end but would advise against booking it if you're looking for any sort of basic amenities.

Don't book this place. You're better off sleeping on the side of a canal. At least you aren't losing half your life savings for a shack. Bathrooms. The shower was literally a leak in the wall because the faucet was broken so "showering" was basically "sponging." Nobody ever cleaned the bathroom so it was gross and perpetually stank. Water gets... More

Great location, Tram 5 to Centraal Station is right outside. Hostel is clean, there is a great common area with kitchen and funky decor, newish refurb. Staff are helpful and informative. I would stay here again, the price @ £11 is well worth its coin!

Want to backpack through Europe? Definitely hotel rates will be an inhibition to this task especially in cities like Amsterdam with so expensive hotels due to plenty tourists. Amsterdam Hostel Leidseplein is a very good hostel run by a couple of cool guys. Try book online so you can get cheaper deals. Speak to Bilal, he is the friendly manager... More
