Internet Access, Amsterdam
This isn't really a tourist trap, although you will find a lot of tourists using the flat screen, high speed connections here. Easy Internet Cafes are the best thing for the budget traveler who wants to stay in touch with friends and family back home. They can be found all over Europe and even in New York and are a great value. In my hostel, the internet was something like one euro for 5 minutes. At Easy Internet, a euro or two will be all you need for your whole visit.
There are three locations around Amsterdam.
Easy Internet Cafe
Actually just some info on Cybercafe's, once you arrive at Amsterdam...you will notice there are several of them, however the best are obviously 'EasyEverything' cafe's. As far as I know there are only 2, 1 is placed near the Rembrandtsplein and the other one close to Central Station, but this can be missed as it only has a small entrance. The only thing why I recommend these cafe's is cuz they have high-speed [broadband] connections the others are just 2 slow and offer 56K connectivity. However I do advise your should you go for EasyEverything, than buy yourself a ticket worth 5 euro, as this gives you 24hrs of access. Sure you can buy of 1 Euro which will give you in the morning about 4.5hrs access...however should you wanted to use it again around the afternoon, than don't get surprised that that ticket only gives you access for 5 minutes...Yes 5 minutes. Be aware that there are NO printing or saving facilities, you will only find that at the other Cybercafe's where you can also have a snack or a drink.
