Nice bar inside, good vibes overall. They have shuttles that take you in/out of the city all day. Perfect for relaxing after the craziness of Amsterdam

An amazing hostel. The staff were travelers themselves, the hostel was cheap, and the beach location creates for a nice respite from the city. The hostel van to and from Amsterdam made the distance from center-city a non-issue.

The flying pig was a great stay for a great price. The staff was great and helped with any questions I had. Ashley was also helpful on where to go for stuff to do. He is a regular there and knows the area better than most. I would def come back and stay there again just to have another beer with the staff and Ashley. The Sunday night dinner is a must and well worth the 5 Euro it costs.

You wouldn't wanna be at this hostel if you don't wanna smoke. Location is about an hour from Amsterdam, they do have shuttles to and from for 4euros, however it's only twice a day and fills up fast! Smoking room was tiny and was always really crowded. They closed their outdoor area at 10pm. Beds were comfy, and there was a security deposit box, but no locker. A good free breakfasrt, I made my lunches with the bread and spreads too :) Located next to a gorgeous beach and restaurants!

Second time here and didn't stay long but it looked fun as ever. Comfy beds and would defo recommend as a cheaper alternative to the city, or a cheap base if you want to go to other cities too, very easy to get around from here

If you are looking for an awesome vibe to start your Amsterdam trip, this is the place!! Great staff and the people who stay here are awesome! Friendly to people of all kinds (especially if you like to drink and smoke). But even if you do not there are endless things to do here! A must stay!!

Definitely an awesome party hostel. The staff is fun and it's a riot there. I don't recommend it if you want to commute into Amsterdam a lot as it's an hour bus ride away and I definitely wouldn't go if you want to relax and sleep. If you want to get out of Amsterdam and party your ass off then it's a must

Great way to escape the city life. I think I would have preferred the downtown or uptown hostels. Still had a great time!

I think it was very good, staff very helpfull and nice the only thing i would like to change would be the shuttle because it was too small and since its located far from Amsterdam and if the shuttle is full it is a little complicated and expensive to get there otherwise. Aside from that wverything was very good and eventhough it is far the location os very pretty too

Very chill place. The staff are volunteers (for room and board) so they all like being there and hanging out with the travelers. Dont expect it to be spotless! They offer a shuttle into Amsterdam for 4 euros, and the lady driving was the best! Lovely out of the way place, hope to be back sometime!

This place had an awesome atmosphere, all young people who want to have a good time. It was a little far from Amsterdam but the shuttle system was effective. Beach is a 5 minute walk. Staff were all great. I wish they had laundry facilities though.

I really enjoyed staying here, the staff were awesome and it's a lovely hostel. They offer some really reasonable tours in the area.

Some of the staff here were absolutely superb :) namely Josh! We were in the largest room which is shared with staff members but they could be a little inconsiderate at times; blowdrying hair at 1am & talking loudly during the night. Great atmosphere. There was never soap in the downstairs toilet in the dorm. Enjoyed a great BBQ that only cost 3 euros. There are board games! :) Staff are helpful and fun. Good location for beach and supermarket. Double bunk bed was awesome. Felt at home here :)
