Hostile and unwelcoming people. The guy who gave us the bikes had a bad attitude, impatient. Not a pleasant experience. The same for the other lady working there. Bikes are standard, nothing special. There are cheaper rentals nearby.

We hired two bikes super-quickly, no hassle. Very convenient. And when we came back and pointed out that there was a fault with the brakes on one, they didn't charge us for it. Super service. Highly recommend.

My husband and I rented hand brake bikes to explore the countryside. Bikes were cruiser style but got the job done (we're road cyclists used to a different style of riding). Easy to rent and return.

Loved hiring these bikes and super cheap! We went round Vondelpark which was close to the bike shop. Best part of my trip!
