Alibi Hostel is located in the centre of Leeuwarden in the former prison, “de Blokhuispoort”. You will find us on the first and second floor of cell block H. During the day you will find us by entering the main gates of the complex and walking all the way to the third and last courtyard.

You can take the stairs, or the elevator right next to the main entrance of the cell block to our reception on the second floor

After 18:00 however, the main gates will be closed and an alternative route is in use. Just follow the arrows placed next to the gates and along the water to the back entrance of the complex.

The Blokhuispoort houses several other facilities such as a restaurant, a library and a music venue. Besides the Blokhuispoort Leeuwarden has plenty of other restaurants, bars and other nice spots. Because we are locals, we’ll be happy to help you find the hottest spots in Leeuwarden.
