The back bedroom is accessible directly from the entry hall, the second bedroom is on the street side of the house across the living room, where my girlfriend and I sleep. The shower/bathroom is accessible through the living room. The kitchen is open to the living room and fully equipped including oven and microwave, of which you can make free use.

If you are arriving by Eurolines to Amstel station you are also just one tram away. If you come with a car we can show you where to park it for free within a short tram ride (7-10 min).
We highly recommend exploring the city by bike , and for that purpose we have guest bikes* for you for free!!

Yahav is organized and works at being an exemplary host......bicycle availability , nice location ,a room with garden view ,friendly hosts ,morning coffee , full use of kitchen -all combine to make this lodging an excellent choice!
Yahav house is very clean and located close to a tramway, easy to go around. We had a good time borrowing his bikes and could discover the city thanks to his clear explanations/ advice/ maps...
I'd definitely recommend this host, everything matched perfectly with the description and was as expected.
Both my hosts were very welcoming and friendly! Everything is just as described plus lots of very helpful maps,
recommendations of every sort, and directions to get to them. The place is exactly like what u see in pics. Close proximity to trams and buses, hence making it an ideal place to stay.
Our host wasn't here when we arrived (but it's normal it was the afternoon). He gave us a lot of indications to access to the flat where we could have taken a cup of tea in their cute garden before to go to visit Amsterdam.
Moreover, Yahav gave us two bikes to discover the city, it was a very good idea (and economic !). He gave us also a pretty cool map and his own personnal english guide with his recommendations about bar, restaurant, coffee, etc..
We met them just few minutes and we are sad because we didn't had a chance to talk more with our host, but we were really tired due to an intensive and shortly trip.
Everything was as described. Very friendly and helpful host. Quiet location with easy access to the centre. Thanks Deirdre!
Nous avons été bien accueillis par Yahav et sa copine dans leur maison cosy proche du centre d'Amsterdam, d'une manière qui montre que les deux ont vraiment l'habitude de recevoir des hôtes. Chambre confortable, propre et très fonctionnelle. Le prêt des vélos est un vrai plus qui permet d'explorer facilement la ville et de se rendre dans le centre (ainsi qu'à Jordaan par exemple) en une quinzaine de minutes. Le quartier est très tranquille et mignon. Parfait pour un séjour court!
The time at Yahav's house was so great! Espacially to experience Amsterdam by bike was wonderful. It was all like described in the announce. We would come again every time :)

About the Host, Yahav
Hi, I'm Yahav. Together with my girlfriend Deirdre I live in a modest apartment with a spare bedroom. We have now been hosting for over a year, and enjoyed it greatly.
Although I've been living a long time in Amsterdam, I seem to like it more with every passing year. Being a foreigner myself, I know what an outsider would love to see and experience. I love to introduce others to my favorite hangouts. Deirdre is a real dutch girl, and can give you the local perspective as well as help you plan trips to many interesting places off the beaten path.
From the best restaurants and museums to the most dingy bars and everything in between, we would love to help you experience Amsterdam the way we love to live it!
