Lonely Planet review

The lobby is mayhem and spartan rooms have the ambience of a public hospital, but its beds are almost always filled to capacity with boisterous backpackers and groups who pack into the bright and happy bar, the pulsating disco and the inexpensive restaurant. Rooms have private bathrooms and lockers; wi-fi is available in public areas.

Our independent authors have visited Hans Brinker Budget Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Southern Canal Ring.

Description provided by property

The Hans-Brinker is one of Amsterdam’s most famous hostels...also known as 'The Most XXXclusive Budget Hotel'. Here you will find no parking, no sauna, no bellboys, no air conditioning, no minibars, no room service....but you will find clean basic rooms in the centre of Amsterdam.

We’re located at the Kerkstraat, a nice street in Amsterdam close to the lively square Leidseplein and Museumplein. We’re in the middle of the city centre, where many bars, restaurants and clubs are located!

Our dorm rooms are basic with different numbers of beds in different rooms. Each bedroom has its own bathroom including toilet and shower. The quality of the showers are questionable, but they do normally work. The rooms have lockers for each bed.

The ground floor of the hostel consists of different common spaces plus 24-hour reception and a free luggage room. There’s also a big chill area with bar and restaurant. There are no kitchens for personal cooking, but our restaurant offers meals for a normal price. The Hans Brinker Hotel has an underground club which stays open till 3 or 4 in the morning. Free wifi is available at the bar, restaurant and club. There is a smoking area outside and inside the hostel.

In short, this is a very good money-for-value hostel and promises a very pleasant stay and a good and happy feeling for the duration of your stay. We would happily recommend it to anyone.

Please read our Things to Note below before booking. We do not accept stag parties in the hostel. Stag parties shall be refused upon arrival. For dorms, there's a maximum age of 35.
