To get an idea how guests experience our shared accommodation please read the following review: 'The hosts do live in the home and somewhere strike the perfect balance of providing complete privacy as well as being available should you need recommendations or assistance.' Guests can fully enjoy the downstairs living area and kitchen. Use of the kitchen: our policy is as follows: Cooking full meals: sorry! Heating up meals in the microwave: absolutely! Preparing cold breakfast (sandwich etc): sure! Using the stove/oven: nope! Fridge/freezer space: limited! Coffee or tea facilities: complementary! Guests staying longer than a week: full use of the kitchen! Other requests: can be discussed in person or upon arrival! No breakfast is served by the owners, but you can either make a simple breakfast yourself or choose to go to one of the breakfast places around the corner. USB ports to charge your phone are available in the bedroom, no adaptor needed!More

About the neighbourhood
'De Jordaan' is a perfect place to live like the 'Amsterdammers' do. It's a very social district, where everybody seems to get along with each other. The meeting point of the locals is across the street at Café De Nieuwe Lelie, where breakfast is served from 10 am and the last drink will be served around 2 in the morning. The pubs, musea (The Anne Frank house is just a 5 min walk), shopping district and the nightlife are all around the corner.
Getting around
Public transportation (bus and tram) is just a 3 minutes walk away. Bikes can be rented next door. The closest public parking (Q-Park Europarking) is situated in the Marnixstraat 250, which is 10 min away from the house. Parking in the area is tricky, but if you get lucky to find a spot please do not forget to pay in advance for your ticket!
