  • The location was excellent there was even a bike rental ahop across the street. Staff were ok, but the atmosphere was not great. There was a middle school class or two staying there and hanging out in the bar/common area along with an older mens sports team. Wifi didnt work in the rooms, there were not enough bathrooms and no fridge for us to even put our food in along with no cooking facilities. Would not stay again

    Thanks for your review! The mix of people we can't always arrange..but sometimes a mix does make a good vibe... quite personal of course! We will check the wifi though, because yes that should work. Because we have food options to buy we don't have possibilities for your own... hopefully you enjoyed that food!

  • The Hans Brinker was in a great location and was a decent hostel! You have to show your keys to get in at night so is fairly secure. There's a bar in the hostel with a pretty neat atmosphere and there's a good breakfast buffet included in your stay every morning. The rooms are decently clean and there is one bathroom per room which are cleaned but get gross quickly with many people using them. There are lockers in the rooms which are great for storing items securely (but also get loud at night)

  • Really nice hostel with great location and amazing atmosphere. Of course the rooms are really simple and so is the breakfast, but what more can you ask for with these prices :) I had a great time with my friends and we would highly recommend it to others.

  • A little bit old, but clean and cheap hotel. We were lucky to find this place because at weekend it is not easy to find hotel for one night in Amsterdam.

  • Everything was good, except the WiFi , it asked to like the page in facebook which should have been a password protected. and it was bit slow.

  • Far away from everything and the line to check in was ridiculous, it took half an hour. They need more staff at those times. Otherwise the room was fine and an amazing breakfast is complimentary.

  • After check in we found COMPLETE MESS in our room made by people which were there with us. It was the dirtiest room in which I've ever stayed. Except that it was OK. Friendly staff, good breakfast included in booking price and very good location.

  • The staff have a negative attitude towards guests, having signs all around the hostel that they truly don't care about any complaints made. Although at forst o got the joke, I began to realise that this was the reality. I had to wait nearly an hour for my room key, and this happened several times during my stay. The staff is brash and unfriendly. The hostel is in a good location however it is very dirty. For the amount of money I spent at the place, i would have expected more
