The hostel is dirty and rundown, the bathrooms are so small you can hardly sit on the toilet, much less change your clothes. When I arrived I was told that I couldn't have open food because of the mice. And later (at check out) I discovered the hostel owns a cat! Which they don't advertise or mention at all... I'm... More

I've stayed here on every visit to Amsterdam. There were three or four of us on our visits and each time we had our own room with shower etc.. The location is fantastic and the cost cheapest around. It is no thrills, it is a Hostel. But the best hostel i've ever stayed at. Highly recommended if you're with friends... More

IBH offered the best hostel experience I have ever had. The staff are amazing, going above and beyond to make guests feel at home. The hostel is super clean. As with any accommodations on the canal, you wouldn't want to keep food in the room (to avoid any mouse problems). The hostel staff will gladly keep your food in a... More

I had to write a review as there are some awful ones on here which really put me off staying here. We stayed for 3 nights from 25-28th June in a triple room at the top of the hostel. Room was clean, no bed bugs, good smoking room and showers were standard. For the price you are paying I don't... More

Our group stayed in this hostel for two nights and the first night everything was fine. On the second night as we went to sleep we heard rustling. We turned on the light and moments later a mouse ran out of the wardrobe and escaped out under the door. After this we hastily packed our things and went downstairs where... More

For the price I wasn't expecting much, and I didn't get much too. It was clean, though the shared toilets and showers perhaps could have done with a bit more regular attention throughout the day. The reception area was a bit small, especially when there was a group in there. The stairs up from the entrance to the reception area... More

I thought I give this hostel a go and see what it's like given the variety of reviews and rankings here on trip advisor. The hostel is well located for central Amsterdam which is one of only a few good things I can say it offers. The noise travels very easily through the doors, and unfortunately with so many spring...

I was apprehensive about staying here as the reviews are a mixed bag and I had never stayed in a hostel before. But it was absolutely fine. Do no expect luxury, but for the price it is good value in my opinion. The stairs are quite steep on the way in and the steps are small, but it was easy... More
