The cabin we had was very small. It was only good for sleeping, hanging out in there was not possible. Everything else was pretty good.

An excellent base from which to explore Amsterdam - clean, convenient and, by Amsterdam standards, good value for money. What makes this place special is the exceptionately friendly and helpful Monica. Many thanks for a great stay !

Fun novelty that it was a boat, great and friendly staff, nice breakfast, nice to be able to sit in the breakfast room and hang out whenever, perfect location, facilities obviously weren't grandiose since it was a boat but they got the job done.

The boat was fantastic! The rooms are small but it's like being on an adventure, looking out of the little round windows to the harbour. Prepare for small shower/toilet wet rooms - and bring showed to wear to the toilet so your feet for get wet. I had a lot of fun on this boat, and can't wait for a second stay. Breakfast is also included which is a huge bonus! And Brad, the guy seemingly running the show is lovely, and very helpful.

Great location! Very close to Central Station and a short walk to the center of town. The rooms are small and extremely well heated. It was great to have our own sink and mirror in the room. Breakfast was great, although the 'dutch breakfast' wasn't very apparent. The lady who runs the boat is awesome and takes care of everyone and everything. I highly recommend this hostel if you want to experience life on a house boat like most people in Amsterdam live!

Very nice accomodation and excellent breakfast. Fair price and pleasant staff. The cabins are very narrow but this makes the special feeling of this hostel. Sanitary facilities are clean but not really comfortable due to smallness. I would definitely recommend this place.

This hostel is probably the best you can get for this price range. Nevertheless, you should know a few things -- WiFi doesn't usually work (or it works very bad), most of the time I couldn't even load a webpage. I had the room next to the toilets, and, well, it smelled like that. I slept with the window open, but the smell was just too bad.

Very friendly staff and a very nice atmosphere. I would make a point of staying again.

Brilliant stay here, very happy, no problems what so ever, fantastically located! Just a 5-10 minute walk to the central train/tram station where you then have access to the whole city. Had breakfast one morning good selection very happy. Room was perfect for what needed, no security issues what so ever. Thank you :) Would definitely use again if re-visited Amsterdam!
