Cool place - something different for a reasonable price. A little outside the centre but we were able to walk in about half an hour. Kind of like a cottage but on water :)


A refreshingly different choice. Very basic but contains everything you require for a stay in Amsterdam. Easily reached by the tram - No26 from Centraal and No10 from Leidesplein. Really good value for money also - boat is located in a nice area of the city which is not far at all from the hustle and the bustle.


We loved our stay on the boat, it was something different but really enjoyable. We had everything that we needed. The area is lovely and much more local, but still only ten mins from the centre. David is such a welcoming host, really made an effort to make sure we were having the best time. I would completely recommend!


My friend and I really enjoyed our stay on David Boat. David was very welcoming, the boat was perfectly situated in a quiet-ish area of Amsterdam within half an hours walk of the city center and our room offered privacy and security unlike other traditional hostels. Added bonuses included being very close to tram lines that ran to Centraal Station and the museum district; a lovely little breakfast cafe being around the corner; and being able to drink the tap water from the sink


My mum and i stayed for 2 nights and it was great. Super cute and comfortable and David was Sooooo helpful and brought us a fan as we stayed through the heatwave!

This is our third visit back to David's Boat (we are a couple in our 30's) and we love it! Quirky, a little bit different to standard accommodation and in a great quiet of of town location but with the beauty of being 3 stops away from Centraal Station & other tram lines very conveniently located. David (boat owner) is lovely & makes you feel extremely welcome whilst ensuring your privacy is 100% respected.
