I have a question for all of you living in Amsterdam. I assume that life there is quite expensive. How much do you spend on rent, food etc. on average per month? I have received a job opportunity, but before I really start considering to relocate there, I would just like to hear some insights from all of you that are/were residents in Amsterdam.
Thank you and best regards, kajag
Thank you very much, greenline.
You can start with a small room for € 500/€ 600 per month. Food, Insurance and all other normal stuff also about € 500/ € 600 per month.
Monthly costs: € 1000 – € 1200.
It depends on how you live, you can live cheap but also expensive in Amsterdam.
My advise is to get a room or something outside amsterdam. I’ts cheaper.
I live in Utrecht, but i have many friends living in Amsterdam.
I live twenty minutes south of Amsterdam. The Netherlands in general is quite an expensive place to live. Money wise it’s propably better to look for a house/appartment in a town just outside Amsterdam. But when it’s necessary for you to live in Amsterdam, you can check Amsterdam South West.
Thanks guys. This helps a lot. I really appreciate it.
I can agree on the previous posts. Living in Amsterdam is expensive and its hard to find a place. You can better try to find a house near Amsterdam.
If you need anymore help, just ask. I live 5 mins from Amsterdam
Ohh. and prepare for the bad weather
I ‘ve been In Holland In 2009-2010 For Work , From My Experience Its A bit Hard To Find A home/room to stay , but as soon as you find it you can settle there (salary is/was very high) , I Lived In Utrech !
