    If You Need A Wireless Internet Connection

    Favorite thing: There are plenty of bars and cafes around Amsterdam that offer free Wi-Fi. Personally I usually use the Irish bar at De Witte Tulp (The White Tulip) hostel on Warmoesstraat where they are more than happy to let you plug into their electric as well. Obviously you need to buy something (which is never a problem for me!) and to get the access code from one of the staff. Beer prices are quite reasonable and if you get peckish they also offer a sort of Irish-style pub menu.

    Woermoesstraat is the street that leads to the Red Light district from Centraal Station and The White Tulip is about halfway along - watch out for the Irish tricolour.

  • Free Internet at the Bibliotheek

    by Mariajoy Updated Oct 25, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The library on Prinsengracht 587 (not far from the Leidseplein) is open on Sundays and has free internet access for half an hour per day. There is also a nice cafe where you can sit and write your postcards with your coffee.

    Amsterdam Public Library

    Fondest memory: Friendly library receptionists who, when asked if you can have an extension on your internet time say "yes.. I shall just pretend I don't know you" :))
