Really nice hostel but not great if you're claustrophobic as the rooms are very small!! Staying on a barge was a great experience. Staff really nice and helpful and perfect location.

Hébergement très agréable, au calme, les cabines sont petites mais fonctionnelles. Accueil au top, personnel chaleureux et petit déjeuner copieux.

Everything was really great at this hostel! We loved hanging out on the deck and having a few beers. The staff was really easy going and friendly. There was a decent breakfast and also a fridge of drinks/snacks to purchase at a good price. The only thing to be cautious about is staying during the summer. The rooms can get really hot as there are no fans.

We had a great time in Amsterdam! Christian, our host, was absolutely fantastic: he took care of us, made magnificent breakfasts, made sure everything was in place and always with a genuine smile. Thank You!

You are on a boat. Remember, it is a boat. It is not a hotel. It is not a hostel. It is a bostel... or something like that. You get exactly what is advertised. Any negative review talking about size etc is short-sighted given that it is first and foremost... that's right... A BOAT. Having said all of that, it is a nice enough boat. The showers are hot and have awesome water pressure, the guy who runs the place was so friendly and helpful and a great location!!

Super séjour sur la péniche, idéalement placée, près du centre (6min à pieds) et en même temps au calme de la ville. Endroit atypique et Henny est très arrangeante et avenante. Je fortement

Very, very small rooms for a group of 4 dudes. Would recommend for 2 -3people in a 4 person room. Good location though.

Rapporto qualità/prezzo molto valido. Camere veramente piccole ma ci si adatta a tutto per qualche giorno. Bellissimo soggiorno e il personale è molto accogliente.

My friend is 1.98 m, he just fitted in the cabin, but you´re better of with smaller people and less luggage. Just remember, it´s not a hotel, it´s not a cruise, it´s cabins on an old carrier ship. It´s a great place anyway.

A lot of fun to stay on a boat.
