Not the place to stay if you want even a bit of sleep. The doors were slam slam slam all through the night due to the key card system. Great location and good showers with separate toilets on each floor. However, the actual building feels quite cramped with not much natural light.

Had to find a hostel very last minute with some friends and so picked the International Budget Hostel. Location is fantastic and you're really within walking distance to city centre. Located along a canal so the views are nice. Unfortunately, the location is about all this hostel has going for it. Emphasis on the "budget" in the hostel name because... More

Your room is opened with a keycard you get. Inside your room there are lockers/safes that are very big and free to use. The pillows and beds are better than most budget hotels I have stayed in. There is free wifi that works great for browsing. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly and have perfect English skills like 99%... More

Staff are friendly enough, but the showers don't even have holes for drainage, as well as being two to a floor. There were also no towel racks (my clothes got wet on the floor), The doors have a keycard system for security, but the door slamming and beeping will keep you up all night. I think I got about 5...

I stayed here with 4 friends in the private 5 bed room. The room was clean although was cold, the radiator was not on and there was some questionable looking blankets on top of the lockers. Other than that there is no complaint about the room. The showers were clean and hot, although slightly annoying as your clothes get wet... More

For some reason, a female entered my room to ensure I was awake? thought that was very strange as I have stayed in many places and that was a first. Other than that, the other staff member was very welcoming and helpful. Location was alright, showers are not in the room but on the floor. The only other complaint was... More

this hostel is in a great location, being only minutes walk from Leidesplein. The staff on the front desk were helpful and the smoking room is pretty cool to chill out in. Noise isolation in the rooms is good. The only problems I found with this hostel are that the showers were fairly cramped and that there was nowhere to... More
