A truly terrible hostel with great breakfast and an awesome atmosphere in a very sweet location. Definitely lives up to its title of "worst hostel in Amsterdam." Stay here if you're ok with not so clean facilities, a little noise, and a fun time. Don't stay here if you're not ok with these things. Thanks Hans Brinker!

Hi Noah! Great to read you've had the best stay at our hotel!!! See you soon! Greetings, Hans Brinker


One minus.... At the reception they tould us we could take breakfast with us because we have to leave early to catch our plane. The man behind the counter for breakfast said NO! Strange! The man wasn't friendly at all.

Everything was great, super clean, very nice staff (special thanks to the barman who played "moi je m'appel Lolita" when he noticed we were french haha) and close to everything we needed. I'll recommend !

Hi Jade-Eve, Thanks for your great review! Lovely to read you've had the best stay at our hotel! See you again soon? Greetings, Hans Brinker


Their advertising gimmick as the worst hostel in the world was a great strategy, because I had horrible expectations. It turned out it wasn't so bad! Bunk beds, and free sheets and linens. The locker was skinny, but it was all right. Overall it was okay. I wish it was close to the red light district, but it was like a 30 minute walk from the Centraal Station.
