This place is amazing. As others have noted, the location is fantastic. Around the corner from the Museumplein (Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, Concert Hall, etc.); and on a regular bus line that's 20 minutes to Schipol and a tram line that's no more than 15 minutes to Central Station.
The owner Norman Heemskerk is a joy. He's run the place forever and is very proud of what he's created. He provided us with a very helpful orientation when we arrived and was always happy to chat when we ran into him while coming and going.
We (husband, wife, two teenage boys) stayed in the Earth room and we loved it. The boys were comfortable sleeping on the pull-out sofa. My wife and I had our own room with a two-piece bathroom and the main bathroom with rainshower head was a real treat. The kitchen had everything we needed and with a Albert Heins grocery store a five-minute walk away we were able to save a lot of money on breakfasts and a few dinners. We also liked the sunlights so much that we're thinking of putting some in our own home.
All in all, if you're looking for something on a personal scale that can function as a self-sufficiency, this could be the place for you.
