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

Due to budget constraints this hostel was our only option so from reading the reviews I was expecting a bad stay. But it didn't pan out that way and we all had an okay stay. The good points included the friendly staff we experienced and cleanliness of our room and bathroom. Negatives were that the bathroom was cramped and the... More

From the very first moment that we opened the door our holiday's excitement was decreased by half. We were greeted by the steepest stairs you can imagine, which is ridiculous considering to the luggages one has to carry up these stairs. When we checked-in we were requested to pay 30euros more than the amount consented on the website. The staff... More

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...

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
