Unfortunately there were some problems with my bed, but it would have been easy for the staff to assume that we had broken it (4 guys on a lads-holiday)but they didn't blame us at all. Slightly uncomfortable, but could've been a lot worse! Common room was nice and hospidable, we met several people there and had a fridge fom which one could buy drinks which is a nice idea. Rooms were clean, cool and had some storage (all of which we appreciated having stayed on a different boat previously).

If you are looking for something a bit different from all the big hostels, this is the place for you! Very welcoming and the staff is really nice! has a good breakfast, comfy beds even thou its a ship! Pretty much like passenger ship avanti, so its a great hostel to stay! Security is top notch and the location is good aswell. Not for partying, but for those who want a good night sleep in a personal hostel this is your place. And did i mention its a SHIP!

Excelente opción, para una ciudad increíble como lo es amsterdam. El barco es muy lindo, los camarotes son muy chiquitos, pero la sala común es estupenda. El desayuno es muy bueno y abundante. 100% recomendable.

I booked a 3 night stay over easter at this hostel back in Jan 2013. i received a reminder e-mail 1 week before our stay confirming the dates et. However when we arrived at 7pm on the first night we were informed that there had been an overbooking and we had to go stay on another boat. I was not very happy at all, but the manager was away that weekend and there was not much we could do. The staff member on that night was apologetic, but it would have been nie to be told beforehand.

Tip1 : Bring your flip flop for the shower! Tip2 : When frontdoor is locked (past midnight for ex), slide the door to the right before sliding to the left!!!!! Lovely place to stay at! 10min far from Centrum and the station, so it's convenient. Nice view. The wooden deck has a warm atmosphere and breakfast is a real treat! The staff was nice and helpful but we could've gotten more infos about the frontdoor (see tip2) as we got stuck in the rain past 1.00am! Rooms are small but hey it's a boat!

Muy bueno el albergue. Es un barco muy copado. Es muy acogedor. Las habitaciones son chicas pero comodas. El servicio y wifi muy bueno. Desayuno muy completo. La ubicación es buena. Medio alejado de la zona comercial, pero nada que quejarse. Caminando se llega rápido a todos lados. Muy buena estancia y recomendable.

Très bonne auberge que je conseille à toute personne souhaitant faire un court sejour à Amsterdam. L´originalité du lieu et la sympathie du personnel en font une parfaite auberge

2eme sejour sur la péniche Amicitia, le premier avec un groupe d'amis et le second entre copines. Les deux se sont trés bien déroulés. Je trouve le rapport qualité prix super et le côté insolite : Dormir sur une péniche, extra! Les douches et toilettes sont en commun, cela peut en décourager certain mais pour un week end ca fait très bien l'affaire. Personnel sympa et discret. La péniche est situé au port, a 10 min à pied de la gare et du centre ville. J'y retourne avec plaisir.

Unfortunately, despite the charm of being on a canal boat and the great views over the water at breakfast time, we didn't stay as long as we had intended because the boat was noisy - the creaking of the floor above our heads woke us around 7am and we could hear the people in the cabins beside us moving around. But if you are a heavy sleeper I would recommend the hostel!

Loved the experience and the location being right on the water.

The only problem was the tiny little window in the cabin, with a view... over the dock. It was very noisy too.

The view from this hostel is breathtaking, and the rooms have portholes that are right on the water, so nice. It was very quiet at night, not much going on party wise, don't know if this was because of the time of year. The captain is cool and the breakfast is huge. Only thing was the toilets smelled terrible (they were clean though) and every so often a funky sewage-y smell would waft into the room, is this a boat thing?
