About This Listing
We are Sem and Pieter. Two university buddies from Amsterdam, who are setting up a new style hotel. We like to enjoy life and meet people, but most of all we love to see the world. On the many journeys we took together we started to feel that the hotels we visited somehow did not completely fulfill our needs....
Therefore we came up with CityHub. CityHub represents a new generation of travellers that emerged from today’s interactive and interdependent world. At CityHub, these travellers stay in cool sleeping units called 'Hubs'. Each Hub offers you a large comfy two persons bed, an Ipod docking station, free WiFi and multi-color mood lighting. All other facilities such as toilets and showers are shared with your fellow travellers. But no worries, they are spic and span at all times!
At CityHub you enjoy, interact and share experiences through a smart online platform. An interactive wall in the social room shows you what’s going on in the city and what CityHub’s community is talking about. Instead of us, YOU are the one that creates CityHub’s unique vibe. Jointly we create a base from which to explore the beautiful cities of the world.
CityHub BETA is our first pilot location with four Hubs that we have set up in our beautiful apartment in the heart of Amsterdam. CityHub BETA offers you all that CityHub stands for. It has a social room where you can get yourself some food, drinks and snacks. Here you can also share your experiences through CityHub’s interactive wall and meet with fellow travellers.
You can now be one of the first to spend a night in a HUB! CityHub BETA provides the perfect base from which you can explore Amsterdam. It is situated in the heart of Amsterdam within 5 minutes walking from famous area of het Leidseplein, the museum district and Amsterdam's most beautiful park. Also many of the cultural highlights of the city are just around the corner. In total CityHub Beta has four private Hubs.
We invite you to be one of the first to stay at CityHub and share your findings with us!!!
We hope to welcome you soon at CityHub Beta…

Our night at the Hub was really nice. All we needed was there. The hub was minimalistically designed but had a big double bed in it and the shared bathroom was clean. Sem and Peter who welcomed us in person made us feel at home straight away. We would recommend that place to anyone who is flexible and can live in small spaces :)
Nuestra estancia en el Cityhub fue muy satisfactoria. Un nuevo concepto de "albergue moderno" con espacios privados y públicos compartidos. Es muy cómodo y todo estaba muy limpio. Su ubicación es prácticamente en el centro, y se puede ir caminando a cualquier parte (más rápido si alquilas bici). Sin duda, volveremos a Amsterdam, y regresaremos al Cityhub. Gracias por todo.
The location is close to tram station (walking distance) and city centre. Unique place to stay though we didn't get used to the steep staircase. Anyway it is a nice place to stay.
The hubs were the perfect size for both us. Easy to gain access and lock up again.
Sure you can hear the fellow travellers if they are speaking just outside your hub but our host was then then happy to speak to loud guests.
In all it was great. The showers are good.
CityHub was such a wonderful experience. Sem and Peter were very friendly and welcoming and gave us some great tips on what to see in the city.
The accommodation itself was very comfortable, much nicer than staying in a hostel but the fraction of what a hotel would have cost. Location is good - about 30 minutes walk from the central city and it's a beautiful walk to take. The tram was about 2 minutes away and took us straight to Dam Square or Central Station.
I would definitely stay here again if I go back to Amsterdam!
