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!

Liked: Good value happy hour, 24 hour availability, good location.

Disliked: Secruity is not superb as lookers can easily be broken into. The shower was terrible, probably the worst ever. You can't cotrol the tempreture and it comes out in drips.

Liked: L'emplacement tout près de Leidsplein

Disliked: - Le staff qui n'est ni aimable, ni souriant ni vraiment efficace. - Le reveil à 10h façon militaire avec ouverture des portes sans se soucier de savoir si vous êtes habillés et ou on vous laisse 5 minutes pour quitter la chambre et ou on revient toutes les minutes pour vous le rappeler (alors qu'à l'arrivée vous ne pouvez avoir vos cles qu'a partir de 14h!). - La douche qui vous brule ou vous gele et qui innonde jusqu'au toilettes

Liked: I liked the value for money and location. Was able to walk everywhere.

Disliked: It was very noisy. I was in the first dorm next to reception so I heard every guest coming and going and the bar was quite noisy. Not a problem if you (like most of the guests) are in Amsterdam to stay out late and then only arrive back at the hostel in the wee hours to crash, but if you actually want a good nights sleep request a dorm the farthest away from reception possible.
