also an sich war es ganz nett in dem hostel.. man darf nur keine hohen ansprüche an sauberkeit haben. frühstück war vollkommen okay und die zimmer auch, das bad könnte nur größer sein für so viele personen. ansonsten hat es sich aber fürs geld gelohnt (25euro/nacht) aber mehr würde ich auch nicht unbedingt dafür zahlen. lage sehr zentral, alles zu fuß erreichbar, das war sehr gut!

Albergue muito bem localizado, perto de várias atrações, mas atrai uma galera jovem afim de curtição. Tem um bar grande com happy hour que funciona a partir das 18h. O pessoal da recepcão sempre foi atencioso e colaborativo. Quarto que eu fiquei era pequeno, seis camas, e o banheiro minúsculo. Por ter muito jovem tem muita gente que fica neste albegrue por causa da bebida e tbm de fumar maconha (permitido em Amsterdan). Recomendo pelo preço, localização e café da manha. Não recomendo pelo resto

C'est un peu l'usine mais les chambres sont correctes et propres; le personnel est très varié donc il y a des personnes plus aimables que d'autres. Le petit déjeuner c'est vraiment la cantine avec énormément de monde, le personnel est très bien mais la grandeur du lieu fait qu'il est moins aisé de rencontrer des gens en préparant ses céréales. Globalement c'est une auberge très pratique pour visiter Amsterdam, et je la recommande.

Nice bar, nice club, nice restaurant, nice breakfast, nice rooms, nice guests

Amazing location right in the middle of where you want to be. We were mind-blown by breakfast (when most hostels offer only corn flakes or nothing at all, then yes, hot eggs and grilled tomatoes possess the ability to blow my mind). The bunks are sort of military style and the rooms are fairly sterile but that didn't really bother us - we got clean towels daily, another rare bonus. Oh and because of the canals mosquitoes are rife - I had to lather myself in repellent before bed. Would recommend.

This hostel is really nice to meet a lot of nice people! It's really nice, don't expect much, but it's good for what you need!

Extremely basic facilities. Ultra cramped bathroom with lingering pee smell. Prison style bunk with damp sweat smell due to lack of ventilation. Expect mosquitoes attacking you throughout the night, with dead bodies squashed on walls and floors. Only good thing is the free breakfast.

Super Lage, gute Betten, Partymöglichkeit im Haus, unfreundliches Personal als Makenzeichen - Perfekt für ein paar Tage in Amsterdam ohne Schnickschnak zum fairen Preis!

Gutemorgen! Thanks for your review! Looking forward seeing you and your friends again soon at our bar during Happy Hour :)! Hans Brinker

We stayed here for four nights and the first two nights were great! Beer vending machine downstairs a nightclub a bar and a restaurant, so that was pretty cool. On the third night we realized we didn't want to stay up until 2 am and that we needed real sleep...that's where this place gets bad. If you want a great night of rest look elsewhere this place is seriously loud.

Hi, As we are a youth / party hotel we cannot guarantee a quiet night...But why not going downstairs then for a fun beer :)? Hans Brinker

The Hans Brinker is, despite it's advertising, NOT the worst hotel in the world. It's actually pretty great. It's not the cleanest, the staff aren't the friendliest, and the lack of kitchen means it's a hotel experience as opposed to a hostel one. But the breakfast is fantastic, the beds are comfy, and the bar is a great place to meet other travellers. Bring earplugs if you want to sleep properly! The walls are VERY thin!

Great hostel, the only bad thing about it, is the fact they are serving Heineken instead of any good beers :D

La ubicación es muy buena. El hostal está cerca del centro y si quieres alquilar una bici ; delante del mismo hostal hay una tiendecita que la lleva un español de Zaragoza y os hará descuento. El desayuno es siempre el mismo cada mañana, panes varios, embutidos tipo jamon dulce, queso, huevos duros, creps, yogurt, cereales y cafe (dios que malo es el cafe en amsterdam). Por ultimo, las habitaciones son pequeñitas pero están limpias, aunque los colchones son bloques de hormigon. Recomedable

The hostel was mainly used to host big groups for school trips. The average was very young and not very open to meet other people than the ones they went on the trip with. In the bathroom it was not easy to keep the clothes dry for putting then on after showering as there where no hooks or anything else like a toilet seat to place it on. On the other hand, it was perfectly located in Amsterdam. Shops and bars very close as well as public transport.

Hi, Thanks for your review! Currently we are looking for an upgrade for our bathrooms! Greetings, Hans Brinker

Breakfast was amazing for a hostel - especially given it was free. The dorm and bathroom clearly had been cleaned for at least a couple of days and was disgusting. The towel had a stain on it. Bar and restaurant area was nice. Very good location - within walking distance.
