Since day and age, Amsterdam has been home to a happy bunch of sailormen, creatives, prostitutes, housewives, and buccaneers. Since 1970, it’s also the home of the Hans Brinker Hostel. Enclosed by canals and with the Leidsesquare (‘entertainment area’) 5 minutes away, the Hans Brinker Hostel Amsterdam is located right where you want to be.
So take a walk to the Wallen and crawl back. Start the day fresh in the Rijksmuseum and end up in a canal. Dive into Dutch heritage, or the Brinker heritage, for all it matters. Or keep it sophisticated, spend your money in a famous nightclub and sleep until your back starts to hurt. As long as you’re sort of OK we’re happy to have you.
Go where the locals go to: Check out Café Heuvel for a local typical Amsterdam Bar.
PICK YOUR ROOM
WHETHER YOU'RE CHEAP, EASY OR PICKY, WE'VE GOT YOU COVERED
Bed in 8 Bed Mixed Dorm Ensuite
This dorm has eight beds, though it could probably fit a whole lot more persons if you try really hard. You’re welcome to give it a shot, but please let us know in advance.
Bed in 6 Bed Mixed Dorm Ensuite
What happens when you put six strangers in one room? We don’t know either, but we sure are interested in finding out. Book a bed and let’s see what we end up with.
Bed in 5 Bed Mixed Dorm Ensuite
A dorm is a room you share with people you probably don’t know. If that sounds exciting to you, click ‘book’. This dorm has five beds and one bathroom. We hope nobody snores.
Bed in 4 Bed Mixed Dorm Ensuite
Want to spend the night with either three friends or three strangers? OK! This dorm has four beds, for four people, and one bathroom, destined for all four – but not at the same time.
IN CASE YOU'RE PICKY
Triple Private Ensuite
It’s three beds and a shower in one modest room. Some call it cramped, we call it cosy. It remains spacious thanks to our minimalist interior design. Bed. Locker. Less is more.
Twin Private Ensuite
It’s two beds and a bathroom on several square metres. That could have been a typical situation found in any other hostel, but it’s not. It’s the Hans Brinker. To find out what that means, click ‘Book your room’.
Single Private Ensuite
Got money to spend but no friends to join you? This room for one is all you want, if you desire a modest room without unwanted company. We hope you enjoy the most expensive room we have!

STICK TO THE HANSBRINKER BURDGET
The Hans Brinker is pretty well accessible with public transport. Take bus 347 or 357 from Amsterdam Central Station, get out at ‘Leidseplein’ and then walk 7 minutes to Kerkstraat. You’ll see our big yellow ‘HOTEL’ sign right away
Coming from the airport? You can take the train from Schiphol Airport to Amsterdam Central Station (€ 4,30 2nd class, one way)
Don’t want to walk that far? Take tram 2, 11 or 12 from Amsterdam Central Station and get out at ‘Keizersgracht’. Take the first street left (Kerkstraat), walk 100 metres, and you’ll see our yellow ‘HOTEL’ sign. Getting out is the same, just vice versa.
TAKE A RIDE MORE EXPENSIVE THAN YOUR ENTIRE STAY
Take a ride more expensive than your entire stay! Easy is expensive. At least, when talking transport. A taxi can take you from Schiphol to Hans Brinker (or vice versa) for about €35. If you can afford it, go for easy.
