Broken pipes in bathroom, half of the floor was flooded. Pricy even in comparison to Hotels in the area.

Using the term "shuttle" to get to and from Amsterdam is a little generous. Also, the shower in our room was just a flat floor so all the water built up and went everywhere. It was a mess.

I wasn't impressed with this hostel. The only thing it had going for it was that it was near a beach. Otherwise, it's expensive for as far as it is outside of AM, a 45 minute ride to Amsterdam that costs you €4 each way and you have to book far in advance or wait for the next one or pay €12 to get to the city on a bus/train, the dorm room was packed and beneath the bar, which was noisy all night, bed was extremely uncomfortable (a queen size bunk??), outlets were sparse, and only two showers.

The atmosphere of this hostel is wonderful! But what really makes it is the staff. The staff are absolutely superb. I would definitely stay here again.

Wifi good in common area and in room 2. Ikee (spelling) is great, upbeat personality and very knowledgeable of the area. If you want to know something about the beach or the Hague, ask her. Easy to get to the hostel from Central station. Find Tram 1, get off at Kiezerstraat and it's about 1 minute away from the stop. Can use the kitchen and store food in fridge. Grocer close. BIG Signs need to be posted on door of dorms quiet time between 11pm-7am. Think that was common sense of guests, it's not

This place was rad! From the moment we walked in, the vibe was nice and relaxed, exactly what we were looking for. The Beach has a great mix of party and mellow. If you like meeting people but don't want to be out till 6am, this is the place. The wifi was a bit spotty on day one, but managed to fix itself quickly. That's about the only negative thing I had, and really it was minor.

It really was a nice stay at the flying pig. The staff was friendly and helpful around the clock. In late hours it was sometimes a bit noisy but you could get around with that. What I liked was that you get in contact with many people from all over the world.

I cannot express my love for the pig beach hostel enough!! Everyone was there for the same reason- to chill out and have a good time, and I think it's important that staff are included in that as well. They were all professional and very helpful when that's what you needed, but they were just as willing to hang out as anyone else. Also the fact locals party there is a great testament to how great it is. In short, it's a perfect small hostel on a really beautiful beach- I am so glad I stayed!!

I've stayed at all 3 flying pigs. I'd stay with them again, but. . . prices are outrageous on Friday and Saturday nights. Lockers are tiny, but there are locks on the dorm room doors. Some clutter on the back porch. You have to like and check in on Facebook to get wi-fi access. Just give us a password like every other hostel. Don't make us advertise for you on social media!

Staff is very helpful and friendly, Merica knows everything about the area. Hostel is clean, shuttle service is the best value to and from A-dam. Absolutely nothing in the area to see culture-wise, beach is very nice though, but is far away from any bigger town and takes a long time by train or bus to go anywhere else. Go to Noordwijk for tulips and the beach,. Nice, small area of café/bars just down the road from hostel, close to grocer. Can use kitchen and store your food in fridge.

It was a great little hostel with everything necessary for a short break.

I'm sure this is a much better hostel in the summer time, but while I was there it was pretty dead. Not much to do, staff wasn't very friendly, you have to check in on Facebook to use the wifi. All in all I wouldn't go back.

I spent just one night at the Flying Pig in Noordwijk. But I can surely recommend this hostel, the people are nice, the room was pretty clean, and the price also was good. Hope to get back to Noordwijk some day!

Staying outside of the city wasn't a problem at all, as Noordwijk was beautiful, and the shuttle service was great! The atmosphere seemed to be confined to the smoking room, and if you weren't into that it was a little harder to meet people, but I also think that we went at a slow time and everybody there seemed to work there! All in all a good time, and I would definitely recommend it!

Very awesome place. The location is right on the beach, and shops/ nightlife nearby! The staff is top notch and instantly become friends with you. Nice area for smoking indoors/ patio, and bar inside too! The breakfast is great, and dinner is often cooked by one of the staff (really good food for cheap!) The shuttle to the other Flying Pig hostels in downtown/ uptown Amsterdam allow for a nice day-trip of fun. I would definitely stay here again!
