We stayed 4 days and it was fun, if you consider that we are young adaptable people. Maybe not reccomended to claustrophobic people. Breakfast was ok for the nordic standards. One sees the central station from far away.

Absolutely love the place. Cheap, clean, fab people, close to city centre with fantastic breakfast. Everything was nice but the best part was hamster in the main part of the boat. I would definitely recommend this place as a budget version of Amsterdam

Location is good, view is good, René is nice. That is all the good things to say about this place. Now, sorry but not sorry for the review. This is TERRIBLE !

The boat is about 800m from the railway station. It has a nice roof terrace that would be cool on summer. The rooms below the deck are very small and no noise protection. Paid 40€ which is reasonable.

The location is really good.

However the boat needs to be refurbished urgently. Also there was no staff during...

We were looking for a central and cheap place to stay in Amsterdamn and so we thought, it would be a smart idea to go on this boat. The room was smelling like a toilet, there were no windows, the ceiling was 20 cm above your head, and, almost the worst part of it were the loud noises. The boat...
