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 of 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 museums 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 of course you can use our free WiFi throughout the building. 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 (sadly, currently closed due to COVID).

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 function of sleep and comfort. There are lockers for each person to stuff your personal belongings into. You can also buy padlocks from our friendly receptionists if needed. 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 breakfast (please make sure you book the rate including breakfast), a (small) towel, linen and free WiFi. Our reception is open 24 hours 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, or 12 to the hostel; hop off after approximately 10 minutes, at tram stop Keizersgracht. You can also take the metro number 52 and get off at station Vijzelgracht.

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 16 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!

    Of all the great things I love about the hostel, I like the staff, the manager, Lisa and the staff who gave me my breakfast. The staff showed that they really care. The location is great, walking to the central station is about 30 min. The place was comfortable, though I found the door closing mechanism too loud. It could give you a scare.

    Really enjoyed my stay here, my roommates were very nice and interesting which really made the experience nice. The rooms had a drawer for you bags that you could lock as well which reduces a lot of the luggage stress. The staff were really helpful, and could locate things very easily for you. The hostel will also hold your bags if you checked out and need a place to store then which was great. Beds are comfortable and have chargers beside them which is very convenient. Great experience👍

    The hostel included everything mentioned in the description, and the location is very near the city center. I stayed in a private room with some friends and this location was perfect for us.

    Overall great stay! The staff was friendly and helpful and the hostel bar was sick! I would have liked a kitchen, but no big deal. It was clean because the cleaning staff came in every day, the only problem is that you need to watch your stuff because the cleaning staff may accidentally throw it away. One of my roommates had a shopping bag thrown out (it was found), another roommate was missing some weed, and I was missing a pair of pants that I was drying. Good location, good vibes!!

    It was disappointing that I was not allowed to stay. It was nothing personal. 1) I was too old, >35years. 2) I am from the Netherlands and they facilitate only foreign guests. Nothing on the website made me aware of these 2 rules. Just when I want to crash on a bed, I was forced to find another accommodation.
