The Hans Brinker Hostel is nestled between the iconic canals of Amsterdam; an easy 10 minute walk to the famous red-light district and a 5 minute walk to the entertainment area around Leidseplein and the iconic museums at Museumplein.
If guests would like to explore the surroundings, they can visit Rembrandtplein and the Flower Market at 450 m away and Royal Palace Amsterdam at 750 m. Schiphol Airport is located at 15 km away.
I stayed 1 night in a 4 bed room.
The bed was clean and confortable. Shower and toilets were clean too. There is a lot of people to meet in this hostel and the bar downstairs is good. Well located.
I recomend this hostel!
A very good hostel, ideally located, within walking distance of the center, museums and places to go out. We had a room of 4 with bathroom, very clean. Breakfast is offered every morning, super nice! Do not hesitate !
The general very well, the bedrooms complete and clean, the breakfast good. The worst is the shower.
Room with strict minimum (iron bunk beds + tiny bathroom). Very noisy (bad insulation, doors slamming at all times). But all this justifies the low price, which is interesting for small budgets.
Room + breakfast included. Good service for the price. I recommend this hostel. Note that the coffee shops are located opposite the city, Central Station side (A 15min walk from the hostel). Have a nice trip :)
The rooms and facilities are very well appointed.
Satisfied with the stay, well located hostel, center and train station not far.
Well located but no atmosphere
Friendly hostel close to the red light but complicated access.
The Nieuwmarkt and the Convent of Bethany are just around the corner and the hostel is located is at the border of the famous Red Light District.
Dam square is 5 minutes' walk and Central Station (train) is 10 minutes on foot.
The nearest airport is Schiphol Airport, 19 km
Our hostel is overlooking the Red Light District, in the heart of Amsterdam's nightlife hub.
The hostel is great! The location is perfect, near the city center (Dam 5min walk) the central station is 10min, the only problem is that there is only one catch for 4 beds ... So take a multiple power;) But I recommend without moderation!
Ma sœur et moi avons passé un très bon moment à l'auberge de jeunesse Shelter City. En plein centre d'Amsterdam, elle nous a offert un séjour très agréable : personnel souriant et serviable, possibilité de jouer au ping-pong, au baby-foot, à la guitare, au piano... plus un accès à une terrasse calme et ensoleillée. Que demander de plus ? Je recommande vivement cette auberge, merci encore pour votre accueil !
Une auberge au top ! Tout est pratique ! Plein centre ville, dortoirs confortables avec casiers (prévoir cadenas mais sinon ils en vendent), petit déjeuner agréable servi jusque 10h30, petite cours intérieure avec des tables de jardin et des canapés confortables, sanitaires propres, et personnel très sympathique ! Bref, j'ai adoré et je recommande !
Well located, the breakfast service was a bit slow
The location of the hostel and perfect and the staff is friendly
The bar and restaurant of the hostel are also very friendly
Very clean, quiet and the breakfast is very generous
Small negative point: there is no bathroom outside the room (to dry your hair without making noise it is complicated)
little tablets are missing near the beds to put your things at night
Good hostel. Cleanliness of the rooms very correct. The bar on the ground floor brings a big plus (good music and good food) A bit noisy but hey it's Amsterdam!
We had a really good time in this hostel!! The staff is really nice and helpful. Good location, near to the tramway and many good places to visit and to eat/drink. Go there!!
Very welcome and the staff has more than answered this in a difficult situation.
The presence of the bar on the ground floor makes this establishment very noisy.
It has a unique location in the middle of the famous Vondelpark – a stone’s throw from the city’s shopping streets, museums and vibrant nightlife.
Stay here to experience the real hustle and bustle of the city.
The hostel is perfectly located, 5 minutes from a tram, and a few minutes from the museums. The staff were very pleasant and even gave us little restaurant addresses to do. The dorms are spacious and very clean. The hostel itself is very nice. As for breakfast, it is well worth the detour for quality / price! Security is the order of the day, and we had no problems with it. And the price / quality ratio was really top. Nothing to say, only positive !!
It is located in an accessible place, close to several museums and important points of the city. Excellent administrative staff, as they provided detailed information and the chek-in was very fast. They offer continental breakfasts that are good and at a fair price. The place has plenty of space to talk or just be doing something to pass the time. The bar at a reasonable price and with promotions. Very safe since it has electronic cards to enter the rooms.
Modern, new, clean. Reasonable prices. Very well located.
We stayed for 3 days at Stayokay Vondelpark, we were 5 friends in dorm. The hostel is ideally located, close to the center and also more outlying areas and just as nice to go out as De Pjip. Positive point everyone with his pass to return, no need to negotiate for the return to the room. The bike rental service 12 euros / day (+ 25 euros deposit) is unbeatable for a day trip, if you want to rent longer the home recommends you renters nearby. We did not try the restaurant or activities downstairs but the atmosphere was always warm. We will definitely come back!
Good hostel in terms of services (very complete breakfast for 7 €, a bar, a restaurant, many places to ask). It is very well located, everything is done on foot or by bike. The hostel and the rooms are clean. The dorms are a bit rustic and there is not much atmosphere because of very many families with children. You will find a place to leave your luggage on the day of your departure which is paying 1 € = 5h.
Comfortable beds and awesome staff. Its full of backpackers and the vibe is amazing. Great crowd.
Walking distance to the central station and close to everywhere, you can just explore on foot. The rooms are tidy and kept clean. The staff are amazing there is always something going on about.
The Flying Pig Uptown is a relaxed home away from home for backpackers offering a real party vibe! A great place to meet new friends, chill out, have a party - and to explore the city with the tram right on our doorstep. Basing yourself here means benefiting from the true Amsterdam vibe as well as having The Red Light District is just a 20 minute walk away.
The Jordaan area is full of charming streets, picturesque canals and fascinating hidden courtyards.
Experience real Amsterdam in the lively street markets, “brown” cafés and the tulip and cheese museums. This area is famous for hip and trendy boutiques as well as endless restaurants and cafés.
Very welcoming staff. No noise on the floors. Rest assured
Hostel ideally located: next to museums, in a nice neighborhood, 30 minutes walk from the train station or the Jordaan district. Super friendly staff! It just lacks a sink in the room;) And a bit expensive .... (55th / night for a dormitory at 6!)
This place is very lively in the common places while being very quiet and isolated in the floors reserved for the night and the shower. The staff is dedicated and always in a good mood. All the young people who stay there are very positive and it is an opportunity to make a good meeting. I had the misfortune to forget my computer all night in the common smoking room and it was brought back to the reception. We feel so comfortable and safe in this hostel! I highly recommend it to all young people looking for an outing on Amsterdam.
The flying pug was the best hostel of all time, I really loved it and I plan to come back in the summer.
Very good budget stay with clean rooms, staffs are very friendly and easily accessible location.
Good hostel for a short tourist stay as we did with my friend
They say it's in the red light district but it's not like that, I asked for it by mistake, confusing it with the other Shelter
Cold room , no curtains on the window next to me so i had the lights from the neighbors room directly in my eyes the whole night, i was in a dorm of 18 girls , i think that’s too much otherwise the room has to be expended , no space to stand in the room
Great Service, lovely staff, terrific pancakes!
I loved everything about the Shelter Jordan experience.
See you soon, I hope so!
