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.

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. 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!

    Superb

    13 Jun 2019
    My dorm room had an attached private bathroom which was nice. Only 2 complaints were that the showers and taps were the push-to-operate kind, so you had to keep pressing the button to keep them from turning off which is very annoying, and that checkout was at 10am, which is earlier than usual.

    Great place for a 2 nights- location is awesome and you can walk anywhere, the area itself has heaps and walking to the centraal station is only 20 mins on foot. The hostel itself is good- huge though get breakfast early as it gets flooded later on. Good wifi, comfy beds, clean, each room has its own bathroom. Staff were friendly and very helpful when we needed them. No kitchen though for cooking but that’s okay.

    Fabulous

    The facilities are very clean but very basic. You will get the bare minimum, and are missing some amenities such as ladders to the top bunk, bed-side lights, or towels when washing your hands. My only major complaint was the lack of control over obnoxious guests. During our stay we had numerous disturbances in late hours of the night or early hours in the morning. The halls are not soundproof what so ever. Great location and good bang for your buck.

    Staff is friendly and helpful, location is perfect! They have a nice bar great for late drinks. Rooms are okay, but the bunks are too low (can't sit on bed) and the bathroom wasn't very clean... Overall it was OK, but I would try and find better value next time.

    I didn’t realize it was going to be a party hostel, which is on me, but regardless the facility was not the cleanest and I would not stay there again not recommend it to my friends. On the bright side, the staff was friendly!

    Good location and friendly staff. Great that there was a free breakfast, however it was one of the more expensive hostels we've stayed in so do feel this was covered in the price. Our main issue was the bathroom. It was extremely small for 8 people and dirty. The shower was very old and you had to choose between a hot tap or a cold tap, meaning you either burnt or froze. Also no washing machine or kitchen to do your own cooking in. Not terrible overall but price should've been less.
