Casa Robino or simply Casa is a small apartment in Amsterdam shared by nomadic travelers. The place is rented by Robin who decided to use the space as a home-base for same-minded and sometimes not-so-same-minded people. It is also called a Nomadbase or a shared travelers home.

Characteristics

Visitors participate by taking their initiative in getting things done and making things happen. In other words, it is what people make out of it. It fosters a culture of sharing, with community dinners, going dumpster diving and sharing sleeping-rooms. It has an intimate feel to it as it tries to enable something that is also refered to as framily, a family of friends.

The website lists things it needs and also a guide to dumpster diving, shopping and cleaning. The place has no definite rules but recommendations or guidelines.

Limitations

The place doesn't come with a lot of explanations on how things work. Little hints can be found around the place though. Sometimes people are not used to live in such an environment and it can take a while before they get it.
