Inside this hostel there are various Hans Brinker posters scattered around the lobby walls that use self-deprecating humour in an attempt to mock the fact that this is a "budget" hotel. The sad thing is that these satirical advertisements are actually accurate. On the positive, breakfast is included. The hostel has cooks that will prepare breakfast as well as dinner... More

This was my second visit to Hans Brinker and it certainly retained its reputation. I suggested the hostel for our trip to Amsterdam and the other 15 people I was travelling with agreed to have faith in my recommendation. Hans Brinker is situated in the heart of the city, with an incredibly short walk to the Rijksmuseum & Vondelpark. It's... More

This hotel lived up to its name during my stay. Grungy rooms. Uncomfortable bunk beds. However the location was good for back packers, the bar was great and had cheap drinks. Breakfast was good for European standards. I would recommend this place for anyone not bothered by loud, vibrant, drunk/high travellers.

Yes, I understand the name says both 'budget' and 'hostel' but I was not at all impressed with this location. Bar/restaurant was under (loud) construction, no wifi access for the 5 days we stayed, rude staff, elevator that doesn't work, etc... Yes, it was. Us get friendly, but I would have much rather payed a bit more and thoroughly enjoyed... More

After reading reviews we were really looking forward to what we were in for. Receptionists are really nice, I can't see what people have been complaining about. It was cheap and gave you a free breakfast which was better than some hostels breakfast which we had to pay for. A free towel, yes it may be size of a hand... More

I stayed here recently with a group of guys as part of a stag do, the organiser thinking it would be a laugh to book us into the grottiest dump he could find. Joke was on him as it turned out this place is absolutely average. We stayed in the private dorms (that's right, we're big shots) Rooms were hotter... More

This is kind of what they pride their self as. Although the place was clean, bfast was decent, rooms and bathrooms got cleaned daily and the location is very central in AMS. This has been a terrible experience. Very noisy. No kitchen. Reception staff mostly rude. Hope you don't need to ask the blond reception young lady anything, her attitude... More

Travelled with a large group of around 50 people but organisations of keys etc was not problematic. Stayed in a dorm of 6. The room was very very poor, with no safety guard on the top bunks. The walls were thin so noise was a problem. The lockers didn't lock. The bathroom was small and old, but clean. It was... More

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
