Good location close to the beach and much cheaper than staying downtown. Remember to book the shuttle to/from Amsterdam in advance as we found it fills up quickly. Great spot to rent bikes and cycle around for the day. 4 and 6 person doorms were clean and surprisingly quiet

I knew this hostel was outside of Amsterdam but I didn't realize how far. I did book an extra night there because it was easy to take the shuttle, but I could see how that would fill up quickly. I ended up finding another hostel in the city for the rest of my stay
I had a great time at the Flying Pig. The staff was amazing. Most staff members also stay there on the grounds so theres always someone to help you. They are knowledgable and friendly. And if you like to party then this is a good place to go. There is a bar and a smoking room. I didn't need to go anywhere else to have fun. Good place for young people. The location is good too. With ten minute walking distance from the beach and close to many stores and shops, it was a convenient location.
Friendly service, everything made available etc. Bed linen and pillows didn't smell too great. Biggest downer were the wet floors on the toilets upstairs meaning that sitting down to go or putting clothes on the floor whilst showering was very difficult and walking was uncomfortable. Downstairs toilet smelt an awful lot so I avoided it like the plague.
One of the best hostels we've ever stayed in! The staff are the most awesome group of people. The hostel is perfect but the staff are what really will make it one of the best hostels you'll stay in. Big shout out to Dan in particular! It's also the perfect place to party or just chill out. Great facilities, always kept clean and it's location outside the city is perfect. Generally cheaper than staying in Amsterdam as well. Thanks for an awesome week guys!!
Amazing Party hostel with friendly staff in an awesome center location. Breakfast was good too !! I like the Smoking zone..
Amazing atmosphere and friendly staff, nevnever wanted to leave the hostel!
This place is awesome. Been backpacking Europe for 3 and half months and this easily one of the best hostels I've stayed in. Really laid back atmosphere, super easy to meet people, and the staff are the best. Location is a bit far from amsterdam but the area near the hotel and Leiden (nearby city) are super beautiful. They also have a shuttle to Amsterdam so you can go there if you really want. Will definitely be coming back here in the future
Absolutely great hostel with great people. I thought it being a bit away from Amsterdam would turn into a problem but it wasn't at all. The shuttle service was great and just the staff in general. Everything was nice and clean. The whole vibe there made you feel so at home! And the parties there seemed a lot of fun(I didn't attended any) especially when they had the beer pong setup.
flying pig 🐷 is amazing.very lively and a great place to meet other travelers.
The flying pig beach hostel is a great accomdidation: if you are in fact, a pig. It was very dirty, showers were filthy and the rooms were a mess. The shower pressure was literally a trickle of water from a hole in the wall... The beach area is beautiful, but very hard to see Amsterdam. Not some place I would stay again
Great atmosphere all hours, always partying but mostly a smokers hostel
Great hostel! A perfect/relaxing place to end our 6-week Europe trip. The hostel is a short walk from the beach and a nice grocery store. We loved the kitchen, breakfast was nice, and the staff was great. LOVED staying here! Definitely a great option for time spent outside of Amsterdam :)
For some reason could not leave this place. Wanted to work there. It is a party all the time including with the extremely friendly staff. Don't expect high end accommodation but you'll be having such a great time with the locals you'll easily forget having to share only a couple showers.
Great place to come and decompress from the hustle and bustle of a city. A bit of a hike from Amsterdam, but still commutable. The staff was great, extremely welcoming and just a blast to be around while hanging out at the bar. There's a shopping area about a 5 minute walk as well as some restaurants and a super market if you're on a tight budget food wise.

If you are not a smoker I would not recommend this hostel. The whole place smells like smoke and it's always very loud. I loved the location and the beach but I did not want to stay here any longer.
Great hostel to stay in amsterdam, also if you are there in the warmer months of the sear to at least go and be at the beach. The atmosphere was great! Great music, really lively staff, and the people in the hostel also. If you are looking for a sweet and long night of sleep, this may not be your place. Maybe the kitchen and the shower should be taken care of a little bit better but that was nothing that would send a guest away.
This hostel is definitely not for everyone. It is a true Party Hostel and loud basically all night long. They offer free earplugs because it is so loud. If you are into divey party places this is for you and I you are not skip it.
