A nice and cozy place, quite to stay and very convenient to get town by a tram, even though it's a nice neighborhood to wander around with many shops, cafeteria, pubs...... typical dutch in your way. Great host and best person, thank you David. Looking forward to visit you again.

We absolutely loved our time at David Boat! David was a very welcoming host and the Boat was the perfect place to spend our time in Amsterdam. The location was very convenient, in a nice quiet area but only a short walk from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. The real Amsterdam experience

David is a lovely helpful host. The boat is in a quite location just outside the center of town. Cabin is charming & has everything you need & is spotless, real cosy with the radiators on & a very comfortable bed.Area is very nice & there's a cafe just around the corner that does delicious breakfasts. Walk into town in about 30 mins or catch a tram. Will be returning for another visit. Would highly recommend David boat :)

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

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.

Nice and quiet location, yet close to public transport, the Dappermarkt and some nice restaurants.

Great accomodation, great experience, and a memorable trip. And I'd recommend a bar across the canal called 'Roest' - fun atmosphere and authentic dutch pub snacks.

Absolutely loved staying here. It was outside the craziness of the city, but was in a place where there was still a lot to do and only a quick train ride away from downtown. The houseboat was very clean and cozy. Perfect for two people. We felt safe and the location was beautiful. Would definitely recommend!

The facilities were clean, the interior neat, David very friendly. Correspondences previous to the stay were easy and on arrival everything was explained nicely. The location of the boat is great for spending days in the city; at night it was quiet and the boat was very private. I have only praise for this exceptional 'Hostel'. My friend and I throughly enjoyed out stay at David's Boat. I would definitely recommend it and may be coming back again ourselves!

We both had a great time at David's boat, David was great and only happy to help. We stayed in the captains lodge, not sure about the other room on the boat.
