Hans Brinker Budget Hotel

The Hans Brinker Budget Hotel has been proudly disappointing travellers for forty years. Boasting levels of comfort comparable to a minimum-security prison, the Hans Brinker also offers some plumbing and an intermittently open canteen serving a wide range of dishes based on runny eggs.

Thanks Camilla for showing me the work which Kesselskramers developed for the hostel (and thus introducing me to the hostel itself). It’s quite interesting how the Hans Brinker hostel creates a “cool” image by exaggerating the simplicity (in services and furniture) of the hostel. The hostel has everything else than comfort and luxury and probably the approach they use might be interersting for the further development of my work as well…
