We did like the boat, it's a quite charming hostel. The young staff is very serviceminded and working hard to make the guests feel welcome. We liked the feeling of staying on a boat but since we are 39 and 44 years old, maybe a hostel wasn't the smartest choice for us. One night some young couples arrived and they bought a lot to drink from the bar. The older man who worked in the boats bar didnt care that they talked, yelled and laughed until 4 am. It felt quite unconfortable to go to the toilet at 3am when the drunken boys was there showering (the toilets and showers is shared by all guests and bar guests, women and men in the same). At 3:30 in the morning the drunken boys went to the wrong room, they tried to open our door. Then someone started to vormit very loud. We slept 4 hours... So this hostel suits young people better, not families awith children or couples looking for a place for a good nights sleep.
