A private room with LOCK, shared with a couple. 5mins walking from Metro station Ganzenhoef, metro line 53 runs every 10mins from 6.00 till 12.25 am, 15mins to Nieuwmarkt station (Red light district, Dam Square, City center) and 18mins to Ams Central station.
By bus 66, you're at Amsterdam Bijlmer ArenA station, Ajax stadium, Heineken Music Hall & Ziggo Dome in 8-10mins. Night bus 757 stop is less than 100m away.

The space

You have a full private bedroom with LOCK, 1 double bed (1.4m width) + 1 bunk bed (2x 90x200) + 1 single bed. 5 people is possible but a bit tight, ideally 4 people (if 2 people don't wanna share a double bed).

You will share the apartment with me and my boyfriend, we are away most of the day for work and (very likely) go to our other place in the weekend. You would have all the privacy needed and a private balcony.

Always provide clean bed sheets, pillows, duvets. If you need towels, you have to notify me beforehand.

Other things to note

My place is quite expensive to go to the centrum (€5 return trip for locals with travelling cards). This is mainly for first-time visitors:

*** A GVB day ticket allows you to travel on all GVB metro lines, trams, and buses within the city of Amsterdam (excluding night buses and trains).

A 24 hrs-1 day ticket costs €7.50 for adults or €2.50 for kids from 4 to 11 (younger kids travelling for free throughout The Netherlands). It is valid for straight 24 hours (no invalidity after midnight). For example, you buy a GVB day ticket and check in the bus/tram/metro at 8pm on the day you arrive, it will last until 8pm THE NEXT DAY.

There is also options to purchase a multi-day ticket (€12.50 for 48 hrs, €17 for 72 hrs-3 days, €21.50 for 96 hrs-4 days, €26.50 for 120 hrs-5 days , €30 for 144 hrs-6 days, and €33 for 168 hrs-7 days). Please search for "GVB day ticket or multi-day ticket Amsterdam" in your browser, the website is en (dot) gvb (dot) nl .

I strongly recommend this ticket for any (foreign) guests on short stay.

*** If you come back after the last metro at 12.25am, you must take night bus 757 from Dam Square, Spui, Rembrandtplein, Waterlooplein, etc. to stop GRUBBEHOEVE, 1 ticket costs €4.50, officially not included in the GVB day tickets. However, you still can try to check in the night bus with your GVB card, many of my guests were successful and did not need to pay extra for the night bus.

I will give discount on specific case, especially for family with young kids and female travellers, please write me a message.

The place is 5 minutes by walk to the metro station and 20 minutes from Amsterdam Central. Perfect for few days in Amsterdam. It is clean and the hosts are very kind and helpful. I recommend it!

Luuly was lovely and very accommodating, despite us checking in and checking out a bit late. The house was clean, modern and comfortable and the large bedroom and private bathroom were excellent. I couldn't fault Luuly or her place.

The housing area was populated with foreigners but it was relatively safe. The apartment was well equipped and it is just 5 minutes away from the metro station. It takes about 30 minutes train ride to Amsterdam Central station. Convenient place to get groceries and it has an Asian mart to get groceries as well. Overall it was a pleasant and good stay for three days.

Luuly has very detailed instructions. Read them before you book. She and her boyfriend are working professionals so expect it to be quiet. Otherwise we had a really nice stay. Clean bed and towels. It is a bit further away from the city center but we didn't think it was too bad. The train station is a 5 minute walk from her place. If you're looking for a cheap place to stay, this place is perfect.

Sh was very friendly and welcomed us into her home. Also great location near a metro!! The room and bathroom were sectioned off by a separate door which was very nice for privacy

I've been travelling between Europe and Asia for most of my life. Very open-minded (well, I have lived in several "mysterious" countries across the continent), easy-going and helpful. Finally settle in The Netherlands.
