The best hostel in Amsterdam, very clean and warm. Stuff is very pleasant, actually they are owners and they are always near to help you with everything you need. They provide you with a city map and very useful inside tips. It really felt like home. Also, you can help yourself with water and beer or juice on a very... More

If you are looking for a budget hotel in Amsterdam, this is a good option. 10-15 minute walk from the Central station. The room also comes with breakfast. Very small room with double decks but it is clean. The toilet and bath are shared and although small, they are kept clean. The owners are very nice. They will help you... More

This is a fantastic place to stay - it is very close to Centraal Station (which makes travelling around very easy), it's clean, cosy and friendly. The owners are lovely and very knowledgeable, they provide you with a city map and tell you where all the main attractions are. Also there's a stand filled with mini discount cards that will...

The room is very comfortable but the bed may be a tad short for taller person. The hotel is very clean and the owners were very friendly and helpful. Every morning they serve great breakfast and the common area is a very pleasant place to be. The location is very good as well as it is just 10 minutes walk... More

Really good idea for a hostel, very clean and tidy. Helpful friendly staff and excellent breakfast. Room are tiny but sufficient. Toilet and shower facilities excellent - actually the shower was the best hostel shower I've ever used, great pressure considering its on a boat... Decent free wifi. Only negative is in my experience the sleep quality was terrible, as... More

I found this accommodation at short notice so was pleased with the pricing. The breakfast was ok and the hosts are great. They offered assistance on transport and were very kind to leave my room unlocked with my bag inside when I stayed out much too late on my first night in town. There is no nearby tram, you have...

My boyfriend had booked the Hotel Boat t add a different experience to our trip. I was rather hesitant as I wasn't sure how weep. I would do in a confined space however, it was ten times better than expected. The Hotel Boat was clean and fresh with a nice breakfast every morning and a great location. Room sizes were... More

Staying on the Amsterdam Hotelboat was quite a unique experience. Located a short 10 minute walk from Central Station, it was very convenient for accessing the heart of Amsterdam. We did not arrive until 11:30 in the evening, and the owner was waiting to welcome us. The room itself was tiny. The smallest one we had during our travels throughout... More

We were looking forward to our stay because we had never slept on a hotelboat. We were pleasantly surprised when we checked in. The boat itself looked really neat, we were particularly impressed with the interior (the hardwood floors are notable). Our room was a bit cramped, but the bunkbeds had amusing charm, we were on a boat after all.... More

I went to Amsterdam with my boyfriend during Easter weekend. Most of affordable hotels were fully booked when we were looking for some accomodation. We found this place, relatively cheap regarding the average price of the city. Good situation, close to Central Station (really convenient when you arrive late). Tenants are very nice and helpful. Breakfast is included. Towels and... More
