Was a great experience staying on a boat, great location with the best views of Amsterdam. Room was small but comfortable, what more does one need. The breakfast was basic but filing. Don't think I could have found a better place. Would definitely stay here again.

Great location: easy for getting into town and quiet. Really friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast hours are generous (8.30 - 10.30) and the selection is fair enough though not extensive. Bathroom facilities are shared, small but clean. The rooms could be utterly charming if they were properly clean. On first inspection they seemed ok but under the bunks it was... More

We stayed for four days and we absolutely LOVED our experience in this hostel boat. The view from our room was great, and we were visited by two curious swans during our stay which was the cutest and funniest thing ever. The staff ladies were so nice and helpful, and breakfast was great, a good selection of food and drinks,... More

Great location, cabin bunk beds were fun and very comfortable (firm mattress) and breakfast was a nice selection of cheese, sliced meats, cereal and yoghurt. Showers were basic but clean, toilets the same. We selected a cabin at the other end of the boat. clean sheets and towels provided. I would suggest ear plugs just because of door slamming and...

Our stay on the AmicitiA was fantastic. In Amsterdam, a city known for its canals and barges, what better place to stay than on a boat in the centre of Amsterdam. It's located in a perfect spot in easy walking distance from the train station and the centre of town. As it's only a boat you can't expect much in... More

I've never stayed in a hostel but I found the idea of staying in a boat really nice and unique, especially since Amsterdam is a city full of water and canals. The rooms were nice, a bit small but I stayed in one by myself so it was just the right size for me. The bed and pillows were very... More
