Staying here was definitely an experience as the sleeping quarters are very cramped. Overall, the large showers were a surprise and nice. It's about a 15 minute walk from the train station and red light district. Breakfast in the morning was super convenient and delicious. Not sure about the safety as it's on a remote dock and the manager leaves at night. You have to rely on fellow hostel stayers to lock the boat door correctly when they get home. Which they don't.


The hostel was really nice. The bathrooms and the rooms were clean enough, breakfast was really big and tasty and the woman in charge tried to help us the best she could, even though she didn't speak french or english very well. However, the walls are very thin; therefore, we could hear everything from the other rooms, especially disrespectful people laughing and screaming in the middle of the night.


I was 2 nights in this boat and it was nice time and great experience to sleep in a boat.

Such a lovely place to stay! The boat was secure, with a lock on the bedroom door. Plenty of breakfast, bedding, towels, city maps, hot showers were provided. There was some noise from people walking past the room, but that's mentioned in the description. The area was calm and peaceful, and the boat did not move at all.
