Nice place. Much bigger than we expected, so have a crowded bar at night..which is good. They have an underground club, not sure how it is though. Good breakfast. Highly Recommended.
Best choice for that money for Amsterdam!
The locker I was appointed was a bit broken so the lock could be forced open. Perhaps check that all locker locks are actually operational? I had good luck with dorm mates though so felt my stuff was safe.
Terrible Hostel. Would Recommend
What you see is what you get! Great location and helpful staff.

One of the secretary is not the most nice person. The toilet is not appropriate. The shower is bad.
I actually were gonna stay here, but when I got here I turned a round after a half hour, becausebof my impressions. I am used to staying at hostels.. but this was so bad on everyway.. Stay at stayokay hostel. they are great. Call them if the prices are high. usually. they're good and I loved the hostel.
It's really a hostel for students i think. We stayed here for one night and it's perfect for sleeping. But just sleeping. The breakfast was pretty good, so that's a plus and the location was awesome! Very close to everything. But if you want luxe don't come here. If you just need a bed, than this is your hostel.
Great location and good value. They definitely need hooks in the bathroom though. I enjoyed the bar and breakfast was great.
We were 100% satisfied with the Hostel. I repeat: Hostel. I read negative reviews, but those were probably from people who thought Hans Brinker Budget Hotel is a Hotel. BUT for a hostel, it was everything we dreamed of. Clean room with own bathroom, towels and linen, relatively cheap bar and kitchen and nice staff. The free breakfast was beyond our expectations. If we ever come back to Amsterdam we won't search for accomodation, because we will stay at Hans Brinker Budget Hotel.
You get what they tell you; a super basic budget hostel. Roms were fine, and bathroom was clean. Lockers provided in rooms do lock, but seem a bit flimsy. I was only there to sleep one night, bubut I can't say I wasn't glad to be out of there early the next morning.
The hostel itself is very upfront about the no-frills experience and this plays out. However, if you just need a cheap place to stay, you can do far worse. Staff is friendly and helpful. Drinks are cheap at happy hour. Very straightforward.
Staff were pretty friendly, room was standard but absolutely fine. Weird tanoy gives you announcements at random times of day which is bizarre but funny. Overall good, especially location, for the price.
During night the hostel was very noisy and we were toold that this was normal on week-ends. The window could not be closed, the lock did not work. The shower did not work properly.

Overall good stay! Would reccomend to anyone looking for an affordale place that is relatively close to everything.
Exactly what it says on the tin. Nothing fancy, you get a bed, a locker and a bathroom. Small basic and clean. They do a really nice breakfast for free. The bar is nice and open and it's really easy to get to everything else from. Had a great time here
Rooms are a bit scruffy but have everything you need, with an en suite in each one. Bar area is awesome, and the free breakfast was great at filling us up for another day of debauchery!
The Hostel is located in a great location I really recommend to check it out specially if you are arriving to Amsterdam by train. There is a nice bar and it is a good place to meet people. People are loud and they don't really check on night around the rooms.
no micorwave heater and hair drier, the WiFi is not stable, and the bathroom is so small I cant even find a place to put my clothes
Basic hostel but has everything you need. Nothing great but was very good price for the weekend. Nice bed and bar, location is ideal. Would stay here again
