If you're looking for a place where you can start your Amsterdam adventure this is it. It's situated in a beautiful, little, quiet street in which you can find everything you need for exploring Amsterdam and as soon as you get out you find yourself practically in the town centre. There is a cool place for renting bikes just next... More

I was stayed there for 3 nights with a group during Queen's day. It's a nice, plesant hotel. Rooms are clean, beds are super comfortable, breakfast was ok (eggs, cheesse, salads, pancakes etc...) Only thing i didn't like that much were the employers, they could be little nicer. :)

This is a quite ok hostel, I mean you get what you pay for, like everywhere else. But mostly liked the location which was situated right in the centre of the city. Ans to be honest it has everything you d'need in a hostel.

I stayed here for 4 nights in April as part of a massive group festival. Room of 4, bunk beds, very clean and cleaners every day including new towels. Absolutely no where near as bad as their reputation. Staff very friendly and helpful! Underground club a great place open til 4am but they stayed open later on a few nights!... More

Stayed at Hans Brinker this month while I was in Amsterdam. I haven't really used hostels on holidays since school but thought I'd give them a go this time. I was forewarned by a friend before jetting off that Hans Brinker was basic, so I didn't go with high expectations. While I agree that it is basic, it does what... More

You get what it says on the tin. A clean bed, a shower, some breakfast. It's a standard travelers hostel that has the basics. If you want first class, go somewhere else. If you are planning on spending most of your time exploring town, you don't need more than this. It even has a bar in the basement in case... More

Being an extremely handsome billionaire, I can afford to pay for the best of everything and that is why I choose Hans Brinker. Have stayed here twice now. Room service was polite and extremely quick to respond .I ordered 2 roasted capons, a suckling pig and a case of Cristal delivered to my suite at 4am and it arrived in... More

We are quite concerned that you didn’t mention our private valet, the caviar we left on your pillow or the Green Key-approved COCO-MAT top-mattresses with pillow options. Let alone you didn’t even speak about your bathroom with headed bath floor and large bath with built-in TV in mirror. We do feel you don’t do justice to our hotel ignoring these... More

I booked with invasion group, and didn't have a choice as to my accomodation but was really pleased to have been able to stay in a great place in a convenient location. Can't grumble at the location close to so many wonderful attractions, I personally went on a 1 hour tour boat for 17euros outside the Reijksmuseum was a awesome... More

I'm still at Hans Brinker hostel and its total crap. I unfortunately have to stay another night. I have stayed in lots of hostels and not expecting room service or the sorts but would expect at least basics such as a plug in the bathroom (there was one but someone stupid put a shelf in beside it so your plug...

Recently stayed there with university friends. It's great for students, not as bad as the reviews said. We had a private bathroom in our room, it was cleaned daily. The room did look a little bit like a prison cell, but it did the job. We each had our own locker. Just wished there were more plugs as we had... More
