Went with my university during the Autumn however I didn't know anyone, which was better as you can do what you want whether it's going out in the early morning as there is always staff on duty who are friendly and if they're not too busy are happy to chat. The food is good and always made fresh, the rooms... More

Stayed here as part of a Topdeck tour. This hotel bills itself as the worst hotel in the world and frankly I can believe it. The only light in our room was broken and despite asking reception to fix it, they gave us the runaround about having 2 light switches in the room (which there definitely weren't) and to make...

Hi, we’re so sorry to hear you haven’t enjoyed your stay at our hotel much.

This hotel obviously has low self-esteem! It's not as bad as it makes out! Good location in Amsterdam and basic fit-for-purpose rooms! And there's an awesome burger cafe right down the road and a bike tour company almost opposite!

Great place to sleepover and take a a tour round Amsterdam, to find new friends round the world in your room :) close to city centar and other sights worth seeing, i were there for New years eve in 2009 and that winter was one of the coldest in Holland but warming in the room was excellent :)

Came here on a topdeck tour. Heard a lot of things about the Hans Brinker, but it's actually pretty good. It markets itself as a budget hostel and that's what it is. The beds were comfortable, the doona was warm. The room was basic with just beds and lockers, but that's all I wanted. The room was a little bit... More

they don't state that they're good; but with their great location of being close to many popular attractions, and a large sociable area, bar and even a club- you can't go wrong. breakfast making your stay cheaper. Rooms aren't the best quality- but you get what you pay for! Great quality for price!

After reading the reviews I was expecting some very bad things at this place but I was pleasantly surprised! Let's be clear though, this is a budget hotel, possibly the most budget hotel I've ever stayed in, but budget and bad aren't synonymous. You won't get an luxuries here but for the price you pay, what do you expect? The... More

Went to the hostel as part of a University trip. The hostel had all the essentials, the room was a decent size and the bunk beds were comfortable. The hostel were very tolerant as we were a big party and used the main room for drinking before going out.

I stayed here for a university trip. If you're with people you know and spend time with, it's average. The main 'dinning' area is quite large and consist of giant tables where you go and pay for Breakfast in the mornings and Dinner in the evenings. I got terrible prison vibes from the experience. queuing up as if you are... More
