Description

The space

Please READ until the end to find out all the FREE items I can offer you.

I live in a spacious 3 bedroom apartment 15 mins walk from the center of The Hague . It's close to all amenities: shopping mall , supermarkets , 8 mins from the train station and 3 mins from the closest tram stop . From here to the beach it's a 5 km bike ride and 40 mins by train to Amsterdam. It's not suitable for more than one person. DO ask , anyway .
I can offer no - frills accommodation , ie . your own bedroom with youth hostel price (you can have a bedroom just for yourself , a sofa-bed). Dutch TV (only 3 basic channels) on a separate room, and I never watch it, but there are plenty of DVDs. Do not worry about the cold , the apartment is naturally warm with double glazed windows and well insulated and good central heater .

FORBIDDEN: CIGARETTES, DRUGS, CHILDREN AND PETS. NO EXCEPTIONS MADE.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: WITH THE FANTASTIC GROWTH OF THIS WEBSITE, THERE ARE MORE AND MORE PEOPLE LOOKING FOR ONCE-OFF ACCOMMODATION. MAY I REMIND YOU THAT I'M OPENING MY OWN HOUSE TO YOU. IF YOU HAVE ZERO REFERENCES, PLEASE AT LEAST MAKE AN EFFORT TO CONVINCE ME I SHOULD LET YOU STAY. PUT A PICTURE AND TALK ABOUT YOURSELF.

Thanks!!

My profile for prospective hosts:

I love travelling, I'm really addicted to it. As you can see from my references, despite being a party-animal, at my own home I am clean and quiet. And I think there's no more fundamental rule to life than "treating other people like you want people to treat you".

For me what is great about this website is not only the contact with locals, but also the flexibility: you're not stuck to hotel silly checkin/checkout hours, and there will be no one waking you up, as it happens at youth hostel, and normally the price is better than that one of a hotel, or you can just choose to stay in a cheaper part of town, but easily accessible.
