In my honest opinion this is one of the best hostels/budget hotels I have stayed in A group of 10 of us went for a lads weekend away and this place had everything, a reasonable priced bar that did great happy hour deals, it's own club so you could continue drinking even when everyone else was ready for bed, helpful...

More of a hostel than hotel. Everything in the room is basic, but clean. Wish they were vigilant about luggage storage, they have a big sign saying that they hold no responsibility or something like that as they don't check who takes what bag. I feel they should implement at least some luggage tags. Other than that it was pretty... More

This is a hostel, not a hotel. It is full of 18-25 year-olds on gap years or travelling. For someone older, it wouldn't be too enjoyable. I am 19 and enjoyed it very much. I stayed with two of my friends in a 3 person room with our own ensuite. We were pleasantly surprised on arrival, as we had taken... More

This hostel is exactly what it says, it is not the best hostel you will stay in but the social aspect and the location make up for it. Me and my friend stayed in a private room it was basic but clean, the only problem that one light didn't work. The hostel felt safe and we made some good friends.... More

Stayed in the Hans Brinker on a Saturday night and had a great stay. I stayed in a 6 bedroom dorm, each dorm has a key to get in and you have your own key for your locker. There is also a toilet in every dorm. The dorms are fine and perfect for a nights sleep, only thing missing is... More

Clean budget hotel with free Wifi, own restaurant and a club downstairs in the cellar. The location at Kerkstraat is very close in the south of the city center of Amsterdam. There are lots of bars, restaurants, coffee shops, souvenir shops around.

Where to start? Good god it was a prison cell, only with 5 other inmates. Room temperature 100 Celsius despite it being 20 outside. Window opens 2cm to let air in. Ha. Downstairs nice, location out of the way. But the pièce de résistance was the shower, like being drooled on by a dehydrated baby, also lockers squeaked so loud... More

Where to start? Well we don't say you can expect more than a bed and a bathroom do we? And what else did you need? But thanks for the feedback, we will have a look at the showers..to see if that could be fixed though. Hope you enjoyed the lots of love! More

Stayed here for second time with a friend. Room is clean. Towels that were provided were smaller than a hair towel, a bit convenient when your sharing a room with people you don't know. Breakfast is provided but limited selection; toast and fruit. Beds are comfy but very nosy when you move.
