I wanted to stay at a place to meet fellow travelers to do things with as I traveled by myself. Amsterdam Guest House is just perfect. However, it's better that you hire a car as it's located up the hill in a very nice and safe residential area.
The owner Lorens is very friendly and helpful. I read the review about the breakfast before my stay and agree that the breakfast was delicious. Just let Lorens know what you like and he will make it the way you like it.
I ended up meeting fellow travelers from Sydney, Brussels and Paris and we got to go sight-seeing and doing things together, which was really nice. People are very down-to-earth and easy going, unlike the pretentious crowds at The Glen.
The guest house has AC, a pool, sun deck, steam room, sauna, Jacuzzi.
The only thing that I wish they had was to organize, perhaps, one night of gathering for any travelers who would like to get to know the rest of the guests and perhaps has a small party.
I stayed at another hotel in City Bowl (downtown) for a few days after 6 days of stay as the guest house was completely booked. However, I still prefer the location of the guest house as it's safe, quiet and very beautiful. I will definitely go back again.
The best of all, I have made a bunch of good friends as a result of staying there.
