Amsterdam hotel proud to be the world’s worst
While another hotel might brag about its comfortable beds, spectacular views and excellent customer service, the Hans Brinker Budget Hotel in Amsterdam promises a lift that rarely breaks down, a door that locks and comfort comparable to a minimum security prison.
(T)he hostel-style rooms sleep up to eight in metal bunk beds with blue metal lockers to store valuables, and the ensuite bathrooms offer little more than simple white tile decor, no free shampoo or soap in sight.
Still, with beds available for only 22.50 to 53.50 euros (it remains) almost fully booked most of the year. (S)tudents and backpackers look for no-fuss accommodation within walking distance of the red light district and many of the city’s museums.
(…) As the Hans Brinker suggests (…), a sleeping bag on the side of the motorway might be a better option.
