Water is the element that brought Amsterdam to life, so how could there be any better option than staying there on a boat! We enjoyed traffic on the water - all the vessels going by, telling their own story. Great views and extraordinary location are well worth to put up with a tiny cabin and shared facilities Staff created an "at-home-atmosphere". A fantastic place to experience Amsterdam as long as you don`t have unrealistic expectations. I especially liked the sun-deck on top of the boat...

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at AmicitiA!! The Captain takes really good care of his guests, makes you feel comfortable on his boat, offers help whenever needed, recommends nice places to you etc. I'd give the location a 120% because the view over Oosterdock, the water and the city is gorgeous, especially at sunset! Besides, the city center and Central Station are quite close to the boat which saves you from having to walk great distances.

boa localização e custo beneficio, os quartos são muito pequenos e com pouca ventilação.

Stay on the boat is awesome. The breakfast was rather good and the view was so beautiful. There was a thing that should be informed us earlier if it had a limited time of taking shower. Anyway, everything was great.

Fantastic experience sleeping on a boat. Young, polite and helpful. International breakfast and hearty, unpretentious. Tiny rooms with bunk beds, but the rest of you are on a boat ... a little noisy (you can hear everything going on outside the room, but with a good pair of earplugs is solved!). Lovely location, far from the chaos of the center, with the possibility to enjoy the sunset on the canals! Highly recommended for those who did not pretentious!

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.
