Leidseplein is full of entertainment with tourists and locals going to the concert halls, clubs, bars and coffee shops there. The Red Light District is only a 15-minute walking distance from here. Across from the hostel is Vondelpark, a great park for chilling out on a sunny day with a few drinks, smoking, playing games or having picnics. You can see a cultural or musical performance for free in the park which has a stage for this kind of entertainment.
