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!

    A chill out room would be nice instead of having to sit at the bar for multiple hours waiting for check in

    Clean and organized hostel located within walking distance of many of the attractions and things to do in Amsterdam. The staff were super helpful across the board. There were plenty of people staying there, so the atmosphere was busy and fun. The rooms themselves were clean and organized, with plenty of storage space under the beds that you could lock up with your own lock.

    Such a lovely hostel with an excellent vibe and amazing breakfast. The staff were super helpful! The really cheap drinks and food at the bar were an extra bonus. The only fault was that the windows didn’t open enough to let air in, so the rooms were really hot and stuffy despite it being cold outside.

    Typical hostel with a great atmosphere. It was very loud in my dorm (on the main floor) but the reception provided free earplugs and I had no problem sleeping after this. Breakfast was good and the bar on site had cheap drinks and food. The shower in my room had very poor water pressure, but again, considering the price I wasn’t disappointed. Fair value for the price, considering the prices of other hostels in Amsterdam. Would stay here again.

    Hans Brinker Hostel is amazing! It is perfectly situated right at the centre of Amsterdam on a really cute street. My first impressions were really good as the staff were very friendly and the two girls who I was staying in a dorm with were lovely. The breakfast is free and they have a cool bar/club thing downstairs which is very noisy so definitely bring a pair of earplugs if you want to get to sleep before 5:00 am! The shower in our ensuite wasn't very nice but overall a good experience.

    The place was very central so that was amazing, the staff was smiling and always kind to us! Maybe the bathrooms could have used a rug to make he place feel a bit more cozy and they could have been a bit cleaner but the breakfast was AMAZING! It is right next to the museums and the parks. A wonderful coffee shop is just 2 minutes down the road called bocca!

    stayed at the hans brinker while in amsterdam for a couple days...not gunna lie the rooms kinda remind me like a prison cell, none of the windows opened and there was no circulation in the room....the room didn’t look like it had been cleaned from the last visit, dirty sheets still on the bed etc. breakfast was good, cereal, toast, deli meats & cheese so you can make a sandwich for lunch too. wifi is quite good, the towel they give you isn’t quite big enough for dry yourself but it’ll do.
