Our room in David's boat was very nice, in the front of the boat, super silent. David is a great guy, he provides any info you may need. In sum, we had a good stay in David's boat.

Boat was clean, however we did not like the fact that there was no reception. YOU ARE LITERALLY ON YOUR OWN! Wifi does not work either. Tram ends at 12:45 am leaving you walking home which takes about an hr from the red light district.

Because we wanted some different, we've decided to try David's boat and we were very happy we did that. So, the location is quiet, close to center. No problems with the neighborhood. We enjoys watching the people walking with their dogs and playing with them. Also the ducks were great. We could admire them for hours, taking a lot of positive energy. David is a good host. He helped us with all necessary and also we had a great talk. We recommend this location to all who want a great experience.

The boat is in a nice neighborhood with shops, places to eat, etc. Number 10 tram runs to the museum quarter, and it's an easy walk to a very pleasant brewpub in an old windmill. It was cold when we were there, and our area was often uncomfortably cold. There are no lights over the only sink--a problem when it's dark--and there are no electrical outlets on the upper level (where the WiFi works). It's for people who are agile enough to climb up and down a steep, narrow companionway.

It's cramped, smells of mildew and feels like a deathtrap, but it's got so much character that you grow to love it instantly. An experience unlike any other!

My stay at David's Boat was an amazing experience! The owner is very nice, positive and helpful person. Boat is pretty close from central station but it's a very quiet area. The room was clean and bed was extremely comfortable. I can 100% recommend you that place. I've booked a room for myself but I've paid for 2 people and it was still less than for a single room in a hotel.

Das Hausboot hat mir und meinem Freund sehr gut gefallen! Die Lage ist ausgezeichnet und doch ruhig. David ist ein toller Gastgeber, er hat uns sehr freundlich und einladend empfangen! Mit der Tram ist man in 10 min im Zentrum von Amsterdam. Auch unser Schlafzimmer war sehr kuschelig und bequem, also um es kurz zu machen: Dieses Hausboot kann ich nur weiterempfehlen. Viel Spaß bei dem geplanten Trip! Liebe Grüße Elena und Michael

Uns hat der Aufenthalt super gefallen, das Einzige was uns gefehlt hat waren einige Ablageflächen wie Regale oder Schränke. Das Boot ist super, weil es mal etwas anderes als ein normales Hostel ist.

It is 20-25 min away from the city centre. There is no kitchen or hall, but our room was fine, with shower inside. There was no breakfast, but kattel and coffe (tea) were in the room.

My boyfriend and I loved our stay at Davids Boat! It was our first time in Amsterdam, and he started out with a lot of helpful information about the city. The Boat is really cute and in a quiet neighborhood, only a 10min tramride to the center of the city. David is really a good host, very attentive and he even found us a old tv-set with dvds just because we felt like a movie-night. For the very cosy room and great location, the price was awesome! /Linnea and Julian

Hallo David, der Aufenthalt auf deinem Boot hat uns überaus gut gefallen! Die Atmosphäre ist einfach viel schöner als in einem "normalen" Hotel. Es ist alles etwas einfach, aber es ist alles vorhanden was man braucht! Ein Mülleimer oder Papierkorb wäre noch ganz gut! :) Wir haben die Zeit genossen und werden dein Hausboot auf jeden Fall weiter empfehlen! Liebe Grüße Melina und Andreas

Going to Holland, I thought it fun and traditional to stay on a boat for the weekend. 'David Boat' was lovely in a quiet tree (

La houseboat è un alloggio per persone che vogliono qualcosa di diverso e chesono alla mano . La nostra stanza era molto spartana, ma c'era l'essenziale:doccia con acqua calda, letto comodo e riscaldamento. L'ambiente circostante è davvero tranquillo, romantico,non lontano dal centro, con un ottimo bar di fianco per la colazione. Inoltre cè la possibilità di chiedere in affitto le biciclette a David ad un prezzo conveniente. David molto gentile e disponibile a tutto. Consigliatissimo!!!

We had an amazing weekend on David's houseboat. He is very friendly and accommodating and the boat is just a 10 minute tram ride to Amsterdam Central. Awesome!
