Stayed here for 2 nights early June and I probably had the best sleep I've had in about 3 years. Rooms was basic but it's around £37 per night with tax and you get breakfast and you have your own toilet and shower!!! Toilet smells a bit but I suppose that something to do with the toilet being on a... More

Yes, this is a budget stay but the issues I had would have been so, regardless of this. The staff are really kind and welcoming and the breakfast is fantastic. Location fine. But unfortunately (as I was travelling for work/study) the wifi (including my own) didn't work in my room and it was forbidden to use the communal ares (where... More

The two of us stayed 2 nights in a narrow but perfectly fit room. The room had a sink for brushing teeth and washing face, a separate room with a toilet and a shower, Wifi and a bunk bed. The breakfast was absolutely fine with different kinds of bread and rolls, different kinds of cheese, cold cuts cucumber, tomato, jam,... More

First time in a botel where I really recommend it. The owner is very nice and helpful, good breakfast , cleaned and also wifi . Which is really good for what you pay in central Amsterdam. Walking distance to central station.

I have stated in this Bostel because never heard about the concept before of staying in a boat. Oosterdok is a quite place and many other similar Bostels around. rooms were very small but breakfast and shower were very good. We rented a bike 300mts from the Bostel and we could move everywhere even though we were not staying very... More

I have to say that I booked to stay in this botel because one month in advance my trip to Amsterdam it was one of the few places that wasn't sold out yet. And now I understand why. I am used to travel a lot, so I am not the picky costumer. But since we paid more than 40€ per... More

PROS: - Great location. Under 10 minutes away from Central Station, with lovely views when you're sitting on the deck. - Breakfast was simple and filling. - Staff were friendly. - Quiet place to be. CONS: - Dreadful ventilation. My partner and I stayed here in mid September when it was quite mild, but because you only have a tiny... More

This is the place to stay if you are on a budget in Amsterdam, we loved it! It is so close to the train station and maximum 20 minutes walk to the city centre. The atmosphere on the boat is great and the owners are lovely and always keen to help and have a chat. Everything was clean and overall... More

The hotel is located in front of Renzo Piano's building. Very cheap with great breakfast! I reccomend renting a bike to move in the city! If you go as a couple I reccomend you ask a suite with bathroom inside.
