We stayed here for 2 nights in January! I would only recommend this place for the location and price! The room we were given smelt like cigarette smoke and when we left all our clothes smelt like smoke!! The shower is terrible, the bathroom basically floods!

We were staying in this hotel for 3 days. The hotel has a bar downstairs so during night there was a noise. We stayed on the third floor so we didn't hear anything. :) We were little bit scared of the advert (the worst hotel in the world) but you don't have to worry. Breakfast typical European.

Anyone who's given this place a bad review has completely missed the point of the place. It's a basic set up for people who just want somewhere to crash after a day exploring and/or a heavy night out. It's clean, the staff are ace and the drinks are cheap.

Came here on a university trip - slightly terrified of their marketing as 'the worst hostel in the world' or whatever considering I hate hostels in general. BUT very clean and accommodating. Great for young travellers. Stayed in a room of 6 - each bed had white sheets and duvets already made, which is unusual for a lot of hostel... More

Basic hotel, but has everything you need. Clean rooms and lovely staff, cheap drinks at the bar and cheap and tasty food always available! Happy hour makes it a bargain! Great atmosphere and in the perfect location for getting around Amsterdam. Would stay here again! It's a must for young travellers! Club underneath adds to the fun!

Safe, warm, friendly, cheap, well located, good food, hot water and always busy. If youre going to enjoy Amsterdams night life and cafe culture, you probably wont want much from your hotel but the Hans Brinker provided everything i needed. Having returned five times, it hasnt changed and ill always come back for more.

It's really not as bad as it makes itself out to be. Most of the reason I stayed here is because I thought their advertisement was funny. The location is fantastic. It's a party hostel for sure, so if you're looking for quiet and a peaceful night of sleep, this probably isn't the place for you. If you want a... More

I stayed one night, saturday, in the hostel. There is a big dance floor with a bar that didn't let me rest until 4 a.m approx. Moreover if you are unlucky enough to get a basement room, forget about a good rest. By the other hand, the hostel is well located, 12 mins on foot from the red district. If... More

Hi, sorry to hear you haven’t had a good sleep staying with us… If you stay with us a next time, we recommend you to reserve a room on the 3th or 4th floor, where it’s more quiet. Luckily, we don’t have rooms in the basement, because indeed it would be difficult to get some sleep next to our club.... More

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
