A great hostel by it's own right, capturing the great atmosphere of the renown Flying Pig legacy from Amsterdam, it also provides a great point to venture from to travel around south-western Netherlands via public transportation or just savor the beautiful countryside of the local area (including the famous flower fields between Haarlem and Leiden). Awesome staff and atmosphere, helpful and fun. Very much recommended in general and especially for those who want to see more than just Amsterdam.

Fun party hostel, but the large dorm room is quite smelly! Said there were lockers but only a small safe box. Shuttle to the city is a nice option and cheap. Staff is pretty cool. Nice common area but rooms could use a little work.....

Great staff. Chilled out place. Not the place to stay if you're planning to spend most of your time in Amsterdam. But awesome if you want relax in a beach environment.

The staff is great! It was cold and windy during the time i was there on the beach but hanging inside with the staff was a lot of fun. There is a shuttle service that brings you to Amsterdam. The hostel is a party place. I would def go back and stay here again when it's a lot warmer

Fun hostel! There was a great vibe going on with a very social atmosphere. The bar was fun at night but not too wild so it was perfect for me. Really close to the beach! Showers were nice. It was worth the trek out there. Would recommend if you want a chill night away from the city.

While I was at first concerned about the shear amount of unicorns and rainbows, I eventually got used to it. One morning I even met a leprechaun who had a pot full of green gold. It was fantastic!

Flying Pig Beach Hostel was awesome! We started our trip out here, we wanted to get out of the city for a few days! Noordwijk is a beautiful beach town. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. Its a small joint but perfect for getting to know other travelers. I will definitely go back!

Had an amazing first stay at this hostel with my friend. My stay was so good i have recently gone back by myself and this stay was even better. The laid back atmosphere and great staff made my stay very enjoyable. I recommend this hostel to everyone who wants to take a break from the touristy stuff of Netherlands and have a enjoyable beach escape.

Definitely not near the city but definitely a nice beach resort. The staff are very friendly and have nice communal dinners every evening which were definitely affordable. The shower operated with the sink so that a tap in the middle would switch between the shower head and the basin. Unfortunately you would always get one with other dripping so had to stand side-on whilst brushing teeth or washing hands lol. The bathroom also doesn't have ventilation so if ur going last...hold ur breath.

Nightly dinners with a drink from the bar for €7,50 is an amazing deal. Especially because master chef Jimmy knows what he is song in the kitchen. He made Mexican food for a group of California kids and we all gave it two thumbs up. Trust me, we know our Mexican food. A couple nights at the beach is a great way to start or finish a visit to Amsterdam. Massive coastline with perfect sand. The staff set up a couple solid bonfire sessions for the guests. Great times
