Together with two friends, we’ve spent a Saturday night at Hans Brinker Hostel. We were only interested to have a shed for the night and we booked an ensuite three beds room comprising toilet and shower. The rooms are really basic but cleaner than they claim and we would have expected. The items on sell at the bar are cheap... More

Well I didnt actually know what to expect when I got to this hostel, but having just stayed at about 8 other hostels I was expecting something not too bad. how so very very wrong I was. This place is just....disgusting. I have never seen such a horrible, gross, disgusting shower and bathroom as I did in this place. One... More

Well......where to start. After a 15 hour coach trip, we arrived at the Hans Brinker just in time for a nice afternoon nap. However, a few hours later we awoke to find bites on our faces!! It was evident that the beds were crawling with bed-bugs and other life-like creatures!! We reported this to the front desk, only to then... More

We got what we expected. We spent about five waking minutes here, we dumped our stuff and left, didn't come back until way late, straight to sleep, left after one night, didn't have breakfast, didn't care. Poor location, rooms, value...everything even by hostel standards but they sell themselves in that fashion and we needed a place for the Saturday night.... More

As a hostel it is still fairly bad quality. Rooms available are varied and there is often a lot of choice available. Rooms are small and fairly cramped. The beds were fairly old and rickety. One bathroom in a room for 8, fairly average in hostels. In essence, if you need a fairly cheap place to stay you could do... More

Staff unfriendly, rooms very stark, free breakfast was bad. Really in a bad location. I paid 3 euros into the pay phone after being told one had to put exactly 0,20 cents in to begin the service. Of course, no reimbursement!

It's a hostel. That about sums it up, really. It's a Hostel in every sense of the word. Cheap - costs around £25 a night. Clean (despite their own claims that it's filthy!). The free Breakfast is rubbish, but it fills a hole (un-toasted bread, slices of Ham & Cheese, cold boiled Eggs). The bar is the cheapest bar in... More

Ok, so I dont want to sugar coat it - if you are looking for luxury do NOT go to Hans Brinker. My sister and I arrived early in the morning, we're able to get into our room immediately. Although some of the lockers were falling apart, nothing got taken (but we slept with our purses in our arms, so... More

Went on a trip with college and stayed here. Wasn't bad, although could of been a bit more attractive to the eye. rooms are pretty boring and simple. Not as dirty as I thought it would be, clean towels everyday, maid tidied quite well. Lockers didnt work. "Free" breakfast was nothing more than bread and butter. Had to pay for... More
