The current price p.p. in a dorm room (sleeps 8) is 19.00 to 21.00 euros. It is slightly cheaper if you are an HI member. The hostel is located near the Leidseplein where you can eat, drink, get a tram or just plain hang out. I can highly recommend hanging out in Vondelpark, where the hostel is located, for part of the day. Just don't go wandering too deep into the park at night.
If you have no where special to go in the evening, hang out at the Brasserie Backbackers. Or go for a pre-evening Heineken. Each evening, after a full day of sightseeing, I would go to the bar and write in my journal, drink a beer and listen to the people talking in the many different languages around me. What a super reminder of what a small world we really live in!

If you are interested in a private room, make sure to book early. It fills up months in advance due to the school groups.
Here is their webpage.
