The accommodations were exactly as described in the listing, and the location was great (within easy walking distance from the train station). We were leaving the city early in the morning, and the hosts allowed us to checkout the night before and provided us with a to-go breakfast. They were very accommodating! The only negative was that we were unable to get the wifi to work on either of our 3 devices.


Great spot, comfy houseboat with friendly staff and good accommodation


Loved the boat, great breakfast...and the manager was very friendly!

Great location for this hostel. Although the rooms are small (what do you expect you are on a boat!?) they contained everything you needed. Would reccommend to others and good value for money.

First the room was super small, the total walking site in the room for 2 people is only 2 metresquare. Therefore one metersq. per person. Walls are super thin and u can basically hear whatever is spoken in the next rooms as well as the corridor. I came at around midnight at 12 one night and the door was locked. The guy opened the door and he started to insult and swear at me!!! I have never seen such agression from a dutch before. If u come late, get ready to be humiliated! No wifi in the room.

Owner Comment (Hide)
This gentleman did not use his key and banged loudly on the door after midnight. When I asked why he did not use his key he blamed us for not explaining the use well enough. Maybe he did not pay attention at the check in. We expect guests to be as quiet as possible after midnight.


CONS: it is possible listen steps upstairs and conversations from other rooms, as I knew reading other reviews. During two days, noisy stopped at 12am, so I didn't have real problems to sleep. Internet: you have just 50mb per day, the hotelboat should improve this to give more comfort to its guests. PROS: Every toilet were clean all day. Staffs were really helpful. In spite of the room were small, it were really comfortable and useful for two people. Location: It was the best, but it is good.


I can not recommend the boat highly enough, very clean, calm and welcoming. Excellent.


Great family run hostel. Had everything we needed. Highly recommended.
