The Alibi Hostel is located in the old prison in the city centre of Leeuwarden. Guests can enjoy the on-site bar.

Bike hire is available at this hostel and the area is popular for cycling. Holland Casino Leeuwarden is 1.7 km from Alibi Hostel Leeuwarden, while Fries Museum is 300 metres away.

Great location and easy to find from the train while near the center of town. Super clean room and shared bathroom with a good bed. All of the staff are very nice and helpful. Good value for money at 50 euros a night and it is only 5 euros to rent a bike. I have stayed here before and I will stay here again. It is nice and quiet and i sleep really good here. I love staying at this place.

Looking for a hostel?

Budget travelers know there's no better way to make the most of their trip than by staying at a hostel: Save money for exploring during the day, and swap stories with fellow backpackers in the shared kitchen or bar in the evening. Dorm-style bedrooms with shared bathrooms are standard hostel fare, but private rooms are also available for those willing to pay a little more.

    The Hostel is nice and clean and the receptionist even asked me if I'm okay with the other guests in the dormitory (I'm young and female and all other guests male and at least ten years older then I)
