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.

    The beds are super comfy, the location is great, and the staff is a great resource. I had a great stay at Hans Brinker Hostel. The only downfall is that the bathrooms get very wet after people shower and was slightly messy. However, other than that it was a wonderful stay.

    If you've looking for a LOUD place, this is it. Youngsters running wild, screaming, and doing chants. This is an old place so there is no such thing as a gently closing door. Every time one closes it is like a small bomb going off. This goes on until about 10 pm. Then, at about 11 the disco in the basement starts up. This extremely loud music goes on to about 3 or 4 am. The bathrooms, well...they smell like bathrooms! If the door is completely closed, soon the entire room has that aroma

    No tips or recommendations from the reception desk, bathroom was ultra-small with a barely functioning shower. The location is decent, close to Rijksmuseum, but quite far from the central areas. Basic breakfast, a rather rude staff in the kitchen. My experience was just about ok.

    The location is really good in between a bunch of smoke shops and restaurants but it was super dirty, to the point where I was uncomfy in my room and I’m pretty tolerant about mess. It’s super cheap for Amsterdam but you def get what you pay for and there are super nice ones around that are $10 more and much cleaner and friendlier.
