Helpful staff, party atmosphere, and a decent bar downstairs. A bit far away to get to from Amsterdam, but good if you want to get to the beaches

The beach hostel has a fun vibe. Commuting into Amsterdam on the shuttle was easy, but the last one runs at 10:00, so the Amsterdam nightlife is not really an option. I had a good time here regardless!

The beach hostel is gret if you don't mid being out of the city. They have a shuttle service which is very convent but costs 4 euros. The beach town is a small cute place... Staff is amazing though. If you want the real hostel feel they have it. The only downside is the bathrooms got Pretty dirty throughout the day. They could have used to be clean more. But other than that not a bad hostel by any means!

Good: if you're looking for a hostel that isn't hard up about smoking or drinking or noise, this is it. There's a lot of atmosphere mostly because there are as many staff as guests and they are all quite friendly. Bad: it's not in Amsterdam - but this is not a big deal because there are ways to get about. Overall it's probably the best hostel I stayed in in Amsterdam, just for the smoking room.

This hostel was way more out of the way than the website offered to mention. It was such a hassle to get there by bus (that we ended up paying 10 euro for, one way) and the "shuttle service" they offer is bullshit. We wanted to go out the one night we were staying there and the shuttle wasn't even available for us. Also when I came back from going out, it looked like someone had slept in my bed, and the huge room we stayed in smelled like fart.

Loved it here! The rooms were clean, the breakfast was great, and the atmosphere downstairs was really relaxed and fun. The shuttle was also really convenient and easy to use which was really awesome. The staff were super friendly too. I wish I could have spent more time just hanging out at the hostel, but I was too busy. Would definitely stay here again.

The hostel staff was incredibly helpful! Location is excellent...very close to the beach any everything you need in town.

Small, but very close to the ocean, not far from amsterdam, and you get to see a lot more of the country. Would recommend to any student traveler, not really the place for families.

I thought the hostel was a little overpriced but the atmosphere is phenomenal! The location is perfect for the small beach town! Beautiful location and incredible helpful staff!

The hostel was good and we made some nice friends. But the location is too far from Amsterdam center and the shutter bus was limited of rooms. So if travellers want to stay mainly in the central Amsterdam, this is not a good choice for you!

Stay here for 2 night in 4 beds dorm in June. We have an alternative holiday in Flying Pig Beach Hostel. Everything was better than my expectation. Clean and nice environment. Bathroom with superb warm water supply. Huge supermarket and the bicycle rent shop are just beside the hostel, I enjoy my holiday here. Also breakfast was provided, nice!! Also shuttle service to Ams is the best!! Must spent 1-2 night here, Noordwijk is excellent!

Great place, great people. I loved my stay here, probably the most fun place Ive stayed in Europe overall. I went knowing that it's a big of an ordeal to get to Amsterdam city- if you understand this beforehand, then it's no issue. This is definitely a party hostel and people are there to have a good time. It was loud, raucious, wild, and many other things. Amazingly cool staff. It's far away, it's noisy, it's dingy- but that made it all better. Travelling alone, it was perfect.

Fun hostel to stay at, particularly if you enjoy smoking weed. The shuttle for €4 to get there is convenient. If travelling to Amsterdam I would recommended giving this hostel a go for at least 1 night.
