International Budget Hostel is beautifully situated in the heart of the city centre in the Leidseplein (Leidse Square) area. Leidseplein is the most famous nightlife area in Amsterdam. The location of the hostel is on a quiet, beautiful canal - the Leidsegracht.
Our hostel, set in a former 17th-century warehouse, has a cosy lounge facing the canal where one can relax and socialize and meet other fellow travellers. Breakfast is not included in the room price but is available in the lounge between 9am and 12 noon. The lounge has vending machines, a television, an internet station and a public phone. Free Wi-Fi is available in the entire hostel. We are placed in a old monumental building with no elevators, just steep stairs.
We also have a house cat (which does no harm at all) who just stays in our lounge area and does not come in the rooms.
Due to the new non-smoking law which is introduced since July 1st 2008, smoking will not be permitted in the entire hostel
We are pleased to announce our new indoor smoking room, where you can chill out, socialite, and smoke in comfort looking out over Amsterdam's beautiful canals. The rest of the hostel remains smoke free
free wifi also in the rooms.
