The Hans Brinker Hostel hotel is located in the heart of Amsterdam close to the fabulous antique district as well as the popular pedestrianised shopping street and of course the busy nightlife of the Leidseplein with its cafes bars and nightclubs Although in a very traditional part of town the Hans Brinker is incorporated into a modern building but has expanded over the years and also offers accommodation in traditional buildings and even in a church. The lobby itself is actually quite small however the large restaurant is next to it and offers ample space for sitting meeting friends eating reading etc This is a youth hostel type accommodation and is one of the best known hostels in Amsterdam as it has its own nightclub bar and restaurant and offers excellent value for money. it is also in a prime location close to everything that matters ie restaurants nightlife museums shops boat trips the Holland Casino and the Vondelpark and comes highly recommended Please note the rooms are basic and multi bedded rooms may consist of bunk beds so not good for elderly people or those with children under the age of 5. The restaurant is a vast space located off the small lobby and serves all meals throughout the day at very low prices. It is also a place to hang out and meet people and their is also a bar area.
