Can I use the self-catering kitchen?

Our guest kitchen is available to all guests from 7 am to 11 pm. To ensure Covid-19 safety measures are respected, you must book your time slot and use it during that time only. Note that it can get crowded but that’s why we offer great discounts on food & drink (see below).

Is there a supermarket nearby?

There is an Albert Heijn right behind the building, it´s not huge but you can buy all the essentials and more.

Do I have any discount inside the hostel?

Of course, you are part of the Clink family now! You get 50% off all food from ZINCBar (including breakfast) and 15% off drinks at ZINCBar and CatalystCafe.

Is there space to store my suitcase(s)?

We have a spacious luggage store for our long-term guests where you can keep 2 pieces of luggage per person. However, remember to remove your valuables. In our shared dorms you will have a locker assigned to you that is spacious enough for a laptop and a backpack, just bring a padlock with you. In the private rooms there are no lockers, but you can use any locker available at the reception, check the periodic table of the front desk and pick your favourite element (you will need a padlock too). In case you forgot your padlock, you can buy one at reception.
