Property Description

Are you looking for an interesting stay in Amsterdam? The Hans Brinker Hostel is your place to go. We are famous for what we don’t offer, instead for what we do. We have no bellboys, no swimming pool, no sauna, no minibars, no room service, no televisions, no airco. No luxury. So why would you come to us? Because we offer a great atmosphere, cheap beds, basic accommodation, free breakfast and lots of fun in the centre of Amsterdam!

You can find us at the Kerkstraat, a cozy street in Amsterdam just around the corner of the lively Leidseplein (the hotspot of Amsterdam’s nightlife). We’re also located at a five-minute walk from the Museumplein (where many musea are situated) and the Vondelpark (best place to relax in summer). You can find many bars, restaurants and clubs around our hostel, so you’ll never have to walk far or catch a taxi!

But you don’t need to get out of the Hans Brinker Hostel to have a good time. We have a big, funky-designed bar with a happy hour from 5-6pm and a restaurant that serves fresh but cheap meals (around €6,-). In both areas you can use our free Wifi. After spending a fun evening at our bar, you can go downstairs to our underground club, which stays open till 3 or 4 o’clock in the morning.

About the rooms: we have private rooms as well as dorms. The beds in the dorms differ from 4 up to 8 beds in one room. Our rooms are basic but provide the necessary. There are lockers for each person to stuff your personal belongings; for valuables we rent safes downstairs. Each bedroom has its own bathroom including toilet and shower. The quality of the showers are questionable, but they do work.

A stay with us includes free breakfast, a (small) towel, linen and free wifi. There are smoking areas inside and outside the hostel; smoking isn’t allowed in the rooms. Our reception is open 24hours a day.

To make the most out of your stay in Amsterdam, we provide tickets for many activities & attractions, like the Heineken Experience, a free walking tour, boat tours and a pub crawl. We also provide practical tickets: you can get your public transport tickets with us and hop right on a tram. Tram stops are at three-minute walking distance from the hostel and the trams lead you straight to the Central Station. Coming from the Central Station take tram line 2, 11 or 12 to the hostel; hop off after approximately 10 minutes, at tram stop Keizersgracht.

In short: we’re a good money-for-value hostel. If you want to have a fun time in Amsterdam and only use your bed to have a (short) night sleep and meet many people, this is the place for you! If you want to sleep a lot, maybe not so much.

Please read our Things To Note below before booking. For dorms, there's a maximum age of 35. Children under 15 are not allowed. For New Year's we have a different policy.

Check-in time during week days: 1 pm.
Check-in time during weekends: 2 pm.

Taxes not included - city tax 7.00 % per person per night. City Tax is to be paid upon check-in.
From 01/01/ 2020: 7% of the net overnight rate per night plus €3,00 per person per night and should be paid upon arrival. View House Rules

Overview

Introducing the hostel with the biggest personality in Amsterdam (probably): the Hans Brinker. We’re centrally located, super social and budget-friendly. Speaking of which, we’re all about the freebies – breakfast is free, as are linen and towels. Make the most of our restaurant, where big portions only cost 6 euros. Get chatting to travellers from other countries in the common room or over a happy hour beer in our ultra-cool bar. Keep the party going at our underground club; we’re open until 3 or 4am. We’re also just 7 minutes from Leidseplein, with its world-class nightclubs and bars.

Location

You’ll find us on Kerkstraat in the sophisticated Grachtengordel neighbourhood, well known for its photogenic canals. Walk 9 minutes to find the Museumplein area, which is full of – you guessed it – museums, such as the arts and history Rijksmuseum. The closest tram stop is Keizersgracht, a 3-minute walk from the hostel, but most places are walkable (or easy to cycle). It only takes 30 minutes to get here from Schiphol airport – jump off the metro at Vijzelgracht and walk 8 minutes to find us.

Rooms and Dorms

Amsterdam might be too much fun to spend much time sleeping, but our rooms are perfect for collapsing in when it's finally time to hit the sack. Choose between twin private rooms (perfect for spreading out your stuff), or mixed or female-only dorms (if you fancy meeting travel buddies). All have bathrooms with toilets and showers. There are lockers for your stuff – but if you have valuables, you can leave them in our reception safe.

Extras and activities

Need some recommendations? Just ask the friendly staff at our 24-hour reception (and while you’re at it, grab the code for the free Wi-Fi). On your way out go via reception to get tickets for your free walking tour or Heineken experience. Oh and grab a free coffee before you go!

    Fabulous

    It was pretty decent. The bar is good, and so it's the food. One of the better burgers I've had outside the US. It is of course in a great location, Kirkstraat being in the middle of the canal district, basically equidistant from whatever you want to see. Just steps from the Rijksmuseum in one direction, and some good shopping on the other. The staff was somewhat indifferent, the room was not the cleanest; weekends have a nightclub feel, which kept is up very late, even with the free earplugs.

    Very Good

    11 Jan 2020
    Location was great and the staff were fantastic, but good luck if you were hoping to actually sleep at night. Maybe bring some good earplugs, cause the walls are definitely not soundproof. In fact, I'm almost convinced that they amplify every sound in the building. On top of that, you'll hear everyone who's there to party yelling at all hours of the night. Very clearly. Atmosphere left a lot to be desired if you want to just chill, but I imagine is great if you're there for a crazy party

    Reception were all very nice, but there’s the typical Amsterdam crowd inside : junkies, perverts, school groups, people yelling at all time of day and night, playing loud music, smoking weed, shitting on the floor of the toilets. It’s clearly understaffed so past reception you’ re on your own in the wild. Compared to the other hostels around, it might be the best quality/price you can get though. Sad but true.

    The main toilets were so full of sh*t you couldn’t even enter the bathroom due to the bad smell. The breakfast room in the weekend’s morning is so crowded you have to queue and wait to get an orange juice. Very low cleanliness and atmosphere in general. Good and friendly staff, great location.
