  • Botel Zebra was well described, but in the end I was not very satisfied. The staff was rude, and very unfriendly. The room was tiny and had no A/C, which led to a very hot night. You could not flush toilet paper down the toilet, so that had to go in the trash can- Gross. The walls were paper thin, so when anyone was awake, everyone was. I understand that a lot of this comes with staying on a ship, but in the end, I wish I would have booked a regular Hostel closer to the city.

  • Very nice hostel.Just a short walk from the main train station (it's totally possible to go around the city w/ short walks, no need for public transportation).The staff was very friendly and helpful, they even give you tips on supermarkets, restaurants and other stuff in the city and around the hostel.The breakfast was really good. The rooms are tiny,of course,it's a boat.But everything was really clean (bed linen, towels, toilet, shower). It's a nice stay in the city, I definitely recommend it.

  • I had a good time when staying at Botel Zebra in September. Chin was very helpful. The botel is easy to find and is close to the Central Station and Dam Square. The breakfast was good with a good choice of cheeses, cold meats, bread and drinks. The room was small, but more than adequate to sleep and leave one's bags and possessions- however, on boats rooms tend to be small. Also, it was nice that I was able to leave my bags for storage during the last day. The dining room is also comfortable.

My personal definition of a backpacker is not someone who carries a backpack, but someone who just wants to save money to travel longer.
