How can I find a good place to stay in Amsterdam?
We always advice to check bookings.com and airbnb, but what often happens as well, is that international students become friends with local students and they agree on staying with them (for free or perhaps for a nice price). We use the Network Yoga Therapy facebook group to try to make these arrangements.
