Hostel's location is great and it is clean overall. We have spent the new years eve night and joined the new years party, the food and fine, music was good.
We loved the breakfast buffet too (except the coffee)
checkin time is a bit late, and checkout time is too early
surprisingly there is no kitchen that you may use to make your food.

Thanks for your review!
Although we do not have a guest kitchen, we do offer a variety of affordable snacks and meals from 17:00 to 22:00 throughout the day. If you're waiting to check-in, or you've already checked out and need a place to store your luggage, just stop by the front desk and ask our lovely reception staff if you can leave your suitcases in our luggage room- this way, you won't waste any time exploring the city or having a good time at the Brinker bar. We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us, and hope you had a fun time in the city as well!

Definitely the perfect place to stay in Amsterdam. Perfect location, super clean place and a delicious free breakfast.
This is the third time I have stayed here and it is still the best.
100% recommended.

This Hostel is in a near perfect location for those wishing to explore the popular attractions in the city.

Due to budget restraints my boyfriend and I chose to stay in a 6-bed dorm but we had it to ourselves the entire stay (4 nights) which was an awesome bonus!

The rooms are basic but comfortable and clean. We had a bathroom in our dorm room which was small and not so well designed but it sure beats sharing with the whole floor. Breakfast was great and very generous which helped us save money on food during our stay.

Our 3rd floor room was quiet during the weeknights but on Friday night the nightclub music travels up- good thing we were jet lagged.

We didn’t have much interaction with staff but when we did they were friendly. I didn’t really enjoy having to wear a wristband the whole time to come and go, however, I appreciate they are just trying to keep hostel residents safe.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay here as locality and budget are our priorities on this occasion. Thanks!

Stayed here 5/6 times so far all different times of the year, and always with a group of friends. The staff are always friendly enough and the bar has a great atmosphere. We went once for new year and it was great, we paid 40€ or something for an open bar. Also at 11 pm the basement nightclub opens which is open till late which is very cool and trippy. Location is ok, only 5 minutes from where it’s all going on. Would deffo recommend staying here with friends.

Being a budget hostel someone should not expect luxurious amenities with star class breakfast. Stopped at this hotel for 2 nights & found it to be a excellent choice for what we wanted was close to all the major places to visit but quite enough to get a decent sleep, rooms were small in size but very clean and comfortable and breakfast was good.

Room tip: Avoid if possible. If the budget is not the main concern.

What you see is definitely what you get here at Hans Brinker: a budget hostel for travellers that are keen to meet new people, have fun and get to know the city. We do offer a variety of rooms (ranging from 8 person dorms to private rooms, all of which are en-suite), so you can always ask the front desk if you'd like to switch to a larger room. It sounds like you had a pleasant stay, if there's anything in specific that made it more of a 2-star stay, please don't hesitate to send us a quick email- we appreciate the feedback and hope you'll keep us in mind for your future visits to Amsterdam!
