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

    Brilliant place, the bars great for meeting others staying in the hostel, especially during Happy Hour. Comfy beds and great location near the centre with a bike rental opposite, small shop next to it and a coffee shop on the same street. Couldn’t be better!

    5 ⭐ it's 20min walk from Amsterdam central which seems far but it's an amazing district. Get off the metro at visalgraght rather than Amsterdam central. Staff are the best and the bar is probably the best place to go for a pint in Amsterdam 😂

    The hostel was recently renovated, it is in great shape. Has a good atmosphere and is likely to bring people together on the big terrace and bar/lounge area. I had a great time but if I have to suggest something it will be to put microwaves on the commom area.

    I loved staying here! I was here for two nights, one night a friend and I stayed together and the second night I was alone. The staff were so friendly the desk always has someone at it, it’s clean and the rooms are nice and the bar is really cool! The atmosphere was nice, everyone was really kind:)

    Awesome place. Great location, right by a tram stop. Safe area. Wifi was fast. Hostel was clean. Only thing is I’d skip out paying for breakfast, toast and boiled eggs. It wasn’t worth the money. But overall great. I’d recommend and stay again.

    This hostel is in a good location and staff are friendly , that's about all the good things about the place. But it doesn't have kitchen , so you can't cook , rooms don't have AC , there is just one fan in the room and it's extremely loud that won't let you sleep at night if you keep it on , and rooms are really hot. And bathroom are really tiny .
