Me and three of my friends stayed in this hotel as part of an organised trip with Outgoing, and we had a great trip, largely due to the people we met and the general atmosphere of Amsterdam. We were slightly worried about the hotel after reading bad reviews, but for a group of students who wanted a party weekend it was perfect really. The location is good, a bit out of the centre but a 15 minute walk, or 5 minute “bike taxi” (highly recommended) to Dam square and the Red Light District, and a 10 minute walk the other direction to the museum quarter. The rooms are VERY basic, typical for a youth hostel, but are clean. The beds are bunk beds, and have no ladder to get up to the top bunk, and no rails to stop you from falling, which could be dangerous (especially when drunk) but this didn’t seem to bother us, we just laughed about it every time someone tried to get up or down. No one complained about the beds being un-comfy, however when we slept in them we were all quite drunk. The bathroom was fine, basic but the showers were hot. The toilets are very strange as they are kind of back to front. The best part about the room was the heater, so it was never cold despite it being freezing outside. The hotel bar/dining room had a really nice atmosphere and was easy to talk to people. The breakfasts were just bread Nutella and eggs, but fine. We went out in Amsterdam both Nights we were there and had a great time. We highly recommend the bar crawl, the reps were all great and we had an amazing night! This hotel is great for students and groups, but not really for couples or families!

For the reputation of the worlds worst hotel it wasnt as bad as i thought.
Pretty scabby still, very basic. The bathroom was atrocious!
The winner for it was the location though.
I wouldnt say dont stay there, but i would never stay there ever again.

Hans brinker is a fun filled hostel with great fusilities, friendly staff and great location. You will not be disappointed! It is a place to meet lots of people in there bar and night club to start the night befor heading out for a crazy night in Amsterdam. Wake up in the morning for a breakfast which is included before you head out to explore. Price is also pretty good.

It is a bit boring but really, it does its job as a youth hostel. Fantastic location, easy to get to/from Centraal Station and to get around, just go across the road to Kings Bikes and hire a bike for the day, the location could not be any better!
I would stay here everytime I go to Amsterdam!

We stayed in this hostel in April 2012 on a Topdeck tour of Europe. I'd read other reviews of the hostel before we got there, so was a bit nervous. Unfortunately most of the reviews I'd read were completely true. The rooms were like prison cells, with rickety old beds and metal lockers that didn't close properly. Walking down the hallways was like walking through an abandoned old hospital. I could have forgiven the barren, echoing rooms if they'd been super clean, but they weren't. The shared bathroom was the kind that you wear thongs in just to wash your hands. Luckily the bed sheets were clean (or so they looked). The breakfast was minimal and gross. The only saving factor was that it was within walking distance to the main tourist attractions in Amsterdam, very close to a bike hire store and down the street from a cafe that makes potent brownies. I would recommend that, if you have a choice, go somewhere else!

Room Tip: Choose a good room...at another hostel!
