Myself and 3 friends went to Amsterdam for New years eve. The barge is 10mins away from main train station and close to trams and buses. Staying at the Friesland made our trip, Roy the captain was brilliant and so helpful. He even took us to one of the bars he goes to with his friends and we had a... More

John was so awesome-- we got tripped up in weather issues and had to miss one night of our reservation but he switched it to the latter half of our trip, no problem. We arrived and there was a seamless check-in, and the reviews are right-- super-clean, small but fun! Only complaint was it got pretty hot at night, but... More

We had a lovely time on Friesland. The rooms are a bit tiny but it's located so close to the city centre with a fantastic view. Breakfast was great with plenty to choose from and the owners were nice and friendly. Very hot showers, yet toilets could bea bit smelly. A bit noisy at times at night with loud neighbours... More

The hostel was a converted barge, so don't expect huge rooms, they are small but perfectly formed. Decent mattresses for a hostel, good shower and very clean loos. There was a bit of a smell from the toilets while we were there but i think that was tempoary and it seemed to be fixed on the day we left. Breakfasts... More

We stayed here in October 2009 for 2 nights after finding the accommodation on Hostel Bookers. We had a great time here and actually spent time on the boat during our stay which when in Amsterdam is unusual!! Albeit in the bar :) The boat itself is a short 10 minute walk from Central Station and is just far enough... More

Spent 2 nights at Hotel Friesland with my husband on 1st and 2nd May 2009. Bauke, the manager of the boat was really friendly and as already mentioned in previous reviews, rooms are small. Best things about the accommodation were the spacious dining area, great views of the water, the breakfast and location of the boat. Worst part of the... More

We booked this because our trip landed us in Amsterdam just after Queen's Bday celebrations and everything else was already booked out. Luckily, the boat is actually in a pretty good location and walking distance to red light district and the canals. The boat manager was quite friendly and we enjoyed speaking to him everyday with what we had gotten... More

This place is great if you know what you are signing up for and are excited about that! It is NOT a luxury hotel or spacious budget place... it is a hostel boat. We had a blast, although we were only there one night. The rooms are literally the size of a double bed and in this small space there... More
