We had a great time on the Avanti. Dave and Annie were great hosts, really friendly and helpful. I'd definitely recommend staying there to friends.

Awesome people and a fantastic location! Close enough to walk to just about anywhere or to the train station to take trams. Dave and Anni are awesome hosts and they make the Passenger Ship Avanti the best hostel experience I've had! SHAVE YOUR HEAD DAVE! :)

The agency we booked through did not state it was a hostel when we booked so we were a bit surprised upon arrival to discover it was such. Although it is a boat I do think the small size of the cabins should be emphasised and people should be made aware on booking just how small they are. To combat this issue the hosts have made an effort with the common area so you can relax here in the evening. This may be a great place for others but it wasn't for us.

It's a shame you didn't know that it was a hostel. We'd be interested which 'agency' had led you to believe otherwise. Our description points out that it is hostel, a boat and that you will be staying in a cabin. Our photos also reflect this.

Awesome atmosphere, just like being home. The owners are great and they live on the boat as well. Great way to get the feel of the Netherlands and canals. Perfect location, look forward to going back!

The Avanti is a fantastic place to stay in Amsterdam! The location really is perfect, less than 10 minute walk from Centraal Station. This means you can get to pretty much anywhere in the city via walking, trams or metro within minutes. Captain Dave & Annie were fantastic hosts as well. Yes, the rooms are pretty small, there's no two ways about that. However, the rooms are clean, the beds are comfy, and you're staying close to everything. 10/10 Would stay again.

We had a very nice time on the boat, 10 min from the citycenter, so a very good location!
