Princess Hostel Leidse Square Reviews from the Web

Not a great hostel for socializing, there were no place to meet people which was a bit disappointing since that was what I was looking for. The room was pretty standard. The worst part is that the entrance door is broken so it slams every time someone opens it, that was really annoying especially in the morning! Id find another hostel if you can!


Awful place, horrible people.


Receptionist really nice and lovely but the rooms were extremely small and lockers did not work at all. No where to put our pack packs had to sleep with it. Beds were almost touching I could high five the person beside me


Todo es diminuto en este hostal, desde el tamao de los escalones de la escalera, las habitaciones, las camas, los lockers, los baos, los pasillos. Puertas exageradamente pesadas y ruidosas, difciles de abrir o de cerrar, la alfombra en todo el hostal huele a humedad, baos sucios, regaderas sin donde recargar tus cosas de ducha. No hay aire acondicionado ni ventiladores, las literas hacen bastante ruido al moverse, terrible para los 40 y cacho que pague por la noche, staff equis, apticos


Overall very clean and nice rooms. Kitchen was small however we didnt use it so not an issue. Staff at reception were also lovely. We did have to pay 5 per bag to leave our luggage in a locker tho which seemed very expensive. However a good location and overall would recommend.


The only good thing in this hostel is that it is cheap. It's really hot in the summer and noisy, the shower facilites are bad, the toilet is very inconvinient, and there is only a small basin in the room. The kitchen is small, especially the fridge. The beds are comfortable though, but the lockers are really small. All in all it is good for sleeping there, but don't expect more.


Mycket dligt hostil , dlig hygien, smutsiga badrum


Rooms are pretty small. Only two showers and one tiny toilet for a floor of people. One of the positives were that the staff stayed up for us to arrive when our flight was delayed which was very kind. Its also a bit out of the way of the nicer scenic areas but okay if you like to walk places.


You can find a better hostel -same price and thats way cleaner. The toilet was missing toilet paper and the showers smell like mold, and staff was super rude.

The girl working Friday July 8th nearly left before guests could check in and gave us attitude that were suppose to email when in fact once booking, one of the things the platform asks is what time is your arrival and people filled it out. She had the gate halfway down above the desk, so she obviously just wanted to leave.


While the room itself was a little cramped, that was specified in the description, so no surprises there. The location, however, is fantastic. It's right close to all the big museums, clubs/bars, and Vondelpark, one of the most beautiful parks I've ever walked through, is less than 10 minutes walking. could book a more spacious place, but here is where I met the most people and ended up having the most fun time. Simple, no fuss, in a pretty prime location.


Overall very cramped, tiny kitchen and my friend got locked in the bathroom. Would recommend if you need a super cheap place but no real social atmosphere.


Overall its fine, nothing spectacular but also not terrible.


If you go with friends, you wont be guaranteed to be in the same room as them, as I booked into a 4 person dorm with my partner (male) and on check in we were told we had to split up into separate rooms even though there were empty beds. Im always open minded all of the time but I Honestly wouldnt stay here if it was free. Luckily we were only there for 1 night. Its on a main crossing so its loud all night, traffic lights beep all night and if you want to actually sleep, this is not the place. Its cen


Nestled away near Vondelpark, away from the madness of centraal but within walking distance, basic facilities including a kitchen, a few more little touches would bring this to another level, great staff, would stay again!


The place is quite old and dirty look. There is very small kitchen and no place to eat or sit down.


Little to no hot water in the showers, beds feel like prison cots, no air con so had to have windows open and the noise from the street makes sleeping impossible, rooms not cleaned frequently, absolutely covered in dust. Nowhere to hang my towel to dry after a shower. Struggling to see what I paid over 200 for?


Toilets and showers are dirty. There is no common area and the personal is not really nice.


Although I prepaid for it, the receptionist told me that there was no reservation on their system. And for a new reservation, I had to pay 3 times more than the amount I am supposed to pay. Then I left those scammers' hostel and now sleeping on the airport.

It is ironic when H*stelspoint sent me a mail about how my accomodation was.


Dont stay here- it was very dirty and we were a group of young girls and they kept putting a middle aged man in the room with us


It does not have a common area. The kitchen is extremely tiny. The rooms are packed. I would not recommend it but I think is one of the cheapest options around Amsterdam.
