The novelty of being on a boat in Amsterdam is not to be missed! This is a great option for those on a budget. You won't get much cheaper than this and you don't have share a dorm room!
There are a few pros and cons though:
-Private room with basin, very clean
-Very good price
-Easy going, friendly staff
-Lovely upper deck with a great view of amsterdam
-With boats, they can be a bit smelly, make sure you ask for a room away from the toilets
-Rooms are very small and the pillows are like rocks
-My shower was flooded
-Noise can be an issue with the thin walls. While there is not much actual noise, people walking on the floor above is quite loud.
-Not much ventilation so in summer I imagine it is very hot in the rooms!
-Not very close to anything. It's atleast a 15min walk to the touristy areas
I'd recommend this for two friends visiting Amsterdam for the weekend. Its a great experience and ten times better than being in a dorm for a similar price!
