The cosy house is a really good place to stay: Situated in the center it's nevertheless calm. Thanks Danny we had all informations we needed. It would be fine to have some cushions and blankets in the livingroom and also on the balcony. All in one we can recommand Jacobs home for all who want to discover the city and to have a nice home in the heart of the town at the same time.

Jacob's home was great! It was in the perfect location, very central and we were provided with everything we needed - towels, coffee, tea, bedding, etc. Our host also sat down with us for half an hour and explained everything there was to do in Amsterdam during our short stay. He pointed out fun areas, restaurants to try, beautiful scenery, shopping areas and more. This was incredibly helpful and much appreciated! Thanks again.

Home from home in a quiet street, great central location and near to may sights and transport options.


One of the single beds was too near the stairs for comfort, Fortunately I was able to decamp to the sofa bed. Otherwise the facilities were good.

The pictures on the sites do not do this little spot any justice. Very private and it is an apartment rather than a hostel. Very clean and and for the price I was expecting a lot less. I work in the 5 star hotel industry and this was a pleasure to stay in. Some people have said the steep stairs are an isuue but I loved the of the property and the quirkiness of the layout . Dan was and Will stay there again and recommend it to my friends . Thanks
