Although the location, free breakfast and shared facilities are good, there is no kitchen or atmosphere and the rooms have a lot to be desired. They are incredibly small which is understandable given that it's a boat, however the noise really is unbearable even with ear plugs. It's literally like sleeping in a sound tunnel. It was unfortunately the only place available over the busy new year period however in comparison to a standard dorm is not worth the extra cost. Would not stay again.


Very very nice owner, it's always super cool to arrive in an hostel and to find someone nice, with the smile, helpful,... a good guy :) Bedrooms are small, and we can here what s going on around : take your ear plugs ! ;) Showers and toilets are quiet big, and very clean. good breakfast and nice presentation. Very very good time in the awesome city. Also the localisation is perfect.

Most wonderful place to stay, the owners wee so lovely and helpful. Great location and the place had a really good atmosphere. Will definitely stay again next time I am in Amsterdam.


Our two nights were excellent, rooms are small but it's well organized, breakfast is huge, staff is really nice and they helped us a lot when we asked them advices to go to Leiden by bike ! Good location : near to the train station and the city center. Living on a boat is original and cool.


really enjoyed the stay, staff is perfect, the rooms could not be cleaner and there's a lot to choose of for breakfast. it's a good 10 mins walk into the city center and train station, approx. 30 mins to the rijksmuseum. would definitely return to this place in case of another stay in amsterdam.


A lovely stay on the Hotelboat. Would highly recommend this to others and will stay here again if I am in Amsterdam. Hosts were very pleasant and the breakfasts were great. The boat is close to town which saved us money on transport costs.
