Liked: Great location and friendly staff. Also, the hostel is very big so it's easier to meet people. Free wi-fi on the first floor. Free breakfast was also good.

Disliked: I stayed on the top bunk and there was no ladder, which made climbing up there very difficult. My locker was in pretty poor shape, and I didn't feel comfortable leaving my valuables in there. Shower was smelly, small, and there were absolutely no hooks to hang towels/clothes on (or even a toilet seat cover to put them on).

Liked: It was alright. I chose it because it was the only one which did not include rats. There was free wifi in the cafeteria. Power outlet right next to my bed for charging my phone. An ok breakfast included in the the room charge.

Disliked: For a Wednesday, it was a bit loud in the hallways. My gf did not like the place, but I was fine. I would come back.

Liked: Don't listen to too much of the negative comments. I was wary but found Hans Brinker to be great! Basic but clean rooms, nice bar and nightclub. Good security, lockers and the only way in to the hotel is by showing your key which was a good security precaution I thought. Ensuite on each dorm is good

Disliked: The toilets are weird!

Liked: Location! Easy entrance and exit!

Disliked: The receptionists pay no attention to whether people are waiting to show their keys and be let in to the building. Also the receptionist told us she was cashing up when we got there so we had to wait for half an hour although checking us in would have taken 5minutes!
