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...

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...

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...

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...

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.

I had a great time staying there. The staff were polite, friendly and helpful. There was a wide selection for breakfast from cereals to meats and cheeses with some stuff for the veggie as well. The room was fit for purpose, basically a place to recharge for a few hours, change and then go back on the town. It is...

Staff was not very welcoming. Room was very small and a little bit smelly. Toilet/shower was not hygienic (mould on shower curtain). Floor was cold and moist. Every piece of textile exposed in this room went damp and it was impossible to dry towels and such. Breakfast was ok, but the bread was boring and dry. The only real plus...

It is charming and an adventure, no question. Also it is very clean and the owners are friendly and helpful. The rooms are tiny, but with own shower and toilet. But the walls are very thin and you can hear EVERYTHING in- and outside. Still it can be quiet at night. And you should have extra blankets winter - it...

“Rooms on port side are better as these are located away from the entrance to the boat.”

“Check the wifi in your room before you commit. I had both the free wifi on iPad and my own paid-for on my iPhone and neither got reception in my room. I think that some of the rooms fared better - maybe it is the place on the boat.”
