  • Dirk is such an amazing host! I really enjoyed staying in Amsterdam and he made my stay very comfy. He is very friendly and open-minded. Dirk even gave me a museum pass and some really good tips on where to go for food or entertainment.
    The room was very nice, bright and clean. The location is very nice, pretty close to the Anne Frank House. I liked it a lot, it gave that homie feeling.
    Really recommend this place and Dirk as a host!

  • Amazing host and knowledge of the city. Dirk was extremely helpful to tell us the places we should visit and which ones we should pass (due to our short trip) and finding transportation to the airport; in other words, excellent host. The location is perfect, near the center in a quiet neighborhood 100 mts from a tram station. Won't doubt to recommend him and would definitely be going to Dirk's place in my next trip to Amsterdam.

  • Dirk was a warm welcoming host who gave us great ideas on where to go eat and showed us how to get to various attractions by transit. The location is fairly close to city centre and one tram from the Centraale Station. Only thing you have to be aware is that it is a bit of a climb up stairs--guess it's part of the Amsterdam experience to climb narrow staircases when you go to various locations around town too!

  • We had a great stay at Dirk's. The room we stayed had all we needed and the stay was as easy and comfortable as it could be. Dirk is a super and friendly host and he gives super what-to-do tips that we would not have liked to be without. Dirk clearly loves to have guest and travel on his own - as he said, having guests through Airbnd is definitely the second best to travel on your on own :-) We will be back at Dirk's next time we go to Amsterdam.

  • Dirk is a wonderful host! His place is positioned very close to the center and you can go by foot anywhere. What else, he is giving you hints where you can go in Amsterdam, what might be interesting for you, things that only the local people know. Thank you, Dirk!

  • It was wonderful staying at Dirk's appartment. It is located just on the edge of the Jordan area of the city and is a 10-15 walk to so many major cultural hot spots in Amsterdam. The tram is also just nearby. Dirk is so friendly and generous with his time and suggestions about what to see - the best surprise was the exhibition of Malevick at the contemporary art Stedelijk Museum. I really enjoyed our conversations in the mornings over a cup of coffee. He is well travelled and well read! Lots to talk about. And the room is spacious with a gloriously comfortable bed and doona. Thanks very much Dirk, Maria
