Unfortunately we couldnt enjoy our stay. There were two big mistakes made that left us feeling very uncomfortable. One day in advance we were explained that the stay was 10 Euros more expensive per person per night than listed on Hostelworld. And when we arrived at the property the owner told us, that the room was booked twice and other people were already in our room. In the end he offered us, to stay in the private part of the flat which in the end was all rigth but definitely not comfortable.


it is a home hostel. so we were transited to another one because the host was out of city then.(we did book in advanced) then the host asked his friend provided a apartment for us in the city centre. it was really nice location with good conditions. however, they charged the different price. the hostel host told me just to paid what I needed to pay. but the owner thought it is better than we offered earlier. and want me to pay more. we were at a hurry for bus so I paid 5 euro more.


Well, I booked a room almost two months ago and when I arrived the owner of the hostel wanted to charge more. Not to mention that he had booked the room for someone else and had to improvise a room that hadn't door. Moreover, it can't be considered a hostel because it hasn't leisure area. And to go to the top attractions you need to take a ferry that can take time.


Don't expect to much from this bed&breakfast (without breakfast), location is a problem if you want to go back after midnight (due to the ferry schedule), bedsheets and towels are of very poor quality. The only advantage is that the price is cheap compare to other acommodations in Amsterdam.


Had to pay cash on arrival. Which was 170€ for two nights for two people! It says on the profile that breakfast was included and on arrival she fought with me that there was never breakfast offered. She thought we had left immediately (when actually we took a nap) and she tried to get into out locked door!!! Appalling ! It's an appartment not a B&B?false advertisement . She's horrible . Rough area too with no ATM for cash withdrawal. Highly reccommend not going. No value for money. Robbed.

Although the owner was pleasant and helpful the location was not what we expected at all, the room was in need of decorative repair ( wallpaper was coming off ) and it was'nt a nice atmosphere in the area walking to and from the ferry. All in all I would'nt recommend this property and don't think it was value for money.

The room was rather clean but there was damp and after the night all the windows were fogged; there was no table in the room.This place has no character, becuase there are only two rooms and it is not possible to meet with other people. The bathroom was also damp. There was a concrete floor and it was very unpleasant. It was further than in information on website. Breakfast not included in price.

Yodit, the owner, was absolutely wonderful to us, but the location proved to be a bit inconvenient. You must take a ferry to get into the city, and the ferry that goes to IJplein does not run 24 hours.


Ijplein Bed and Breakfast is essentially a three bedroom apartment, with two rooms being rented out. We would have liked to have known this beforehand, as it is not mentioned in the hostel's description. With that said, however, me and my partner were extremely pleased with the facilities. The room was a perfect size and Judi, the owner, was super helpful during our stay. Our only complaint would be on the shower, which had a loose head that needed to be held. This can easily be fixed though.


There was no breakfast :( and the location is pretty bad.

This B and B is in a part of town that would be new to many travellers. That being said, it is a great part of town. Given the ferries that will take you to Noord. Judi, the owner, is a fantastic woman. She is very nice. This is a nice and comfortable place to stay. Not for meeting new people or partying, but great for a peaceful place to stay in a local neighborhood. Recommended.


i loved it! It was about 10 min walk to the Ferry, but never have to wait long for the Ferry, and it was still a closer and faster stroll to the city center than the other options we had if we would have stayed in the other direction from the city. had a very good experience!


B&B with no breakfast included!Only if you are desperate like us! We couldn't find any affordable hotel in town because of IBC... The location is not the best (north of the river, you need to walk about 10 minutes to the boat that takes you to the central station). No sign on the door (not registered as a business) so we thought we would ring anyway... The landlady has got 2 bedrooms, one with double bed and one with two single beds. You have the bathroom to share between the two bedrooms...
