  • We had a very nice stay and the owner was very friendly and helpful. The room was quite cramped for 3 people and our luggage, but we think that is part of the experience of staying on a boat, and it was also equipped with the usual room facilities, so we had everything we needed. All in all we had a very pleasant experience and will definitely recommend it to everyone.

  • Riktigt bra boende i centrala Amsterdam! Det var häftigt, genuint, mysigt och personligt att få bo på en båt i kanalen. På morgonen serverades en grymt bra frukost med nystekta pannkakor och omelett. Ofta i sällskap med folk från andra länder. Lucas är jättetrevlig och generös och har alltid en rolig historia att berätta. Vi bodde i rummet med dubbelsäng. Alla rum har egna badrum med dusch och toa. Eftersom det är på en båt är det ju lite trångt, men allt man behövde fanns! Rekommenderas skarp!

  • The stuff are extremely cool, friendly and helpful, and we really enjoyed staying on this boat, has a unique atmosphere. It's in the very center of Amsterdam, most places are just a walking distance away. The only thing is that it's a boat, so you should know what you are up to: the rooms are not very spacious at all, and even though its enuite, the toilet has a limited usage. The best place to stay for no more than 1-2 nights and catch the Amsterdam vibe.

  • Our stay was so fun! Obviously it's a compact space because it's a boat, but the price is right. Lucas is awesome and he makes really good food. He was so kind and hospitable, he even accommodated our tardiness. We were late because we got confused with the maps but luckily we caught him before he left. I would definitely stay here again!

  • Small but clean and affordable. Centrally located to everything. I wish we could have stayed more than a night to actually enjoy it!
