To me this is what a hostel should be, most of the staff working there because they love being there, so there's a really laid back atmosphere, the staff are very willing to help and organise things for the guests. It's a lively hostel with great smoking area and outside terrace, I wish we could have stayed longer, but it is expensive but for being beside the beach it is worth it. It was clean and the kitchen was good with food available to buy and a bar. Would definitely recommend.

I had an unreal time at the Flying Pig! Heard great things about the downtown hostels too. Obviously the location isn't ideal if you plan to spend a lot of time in the city, but the shuttle service they operate is cheap and quick. In a way, it was great to have a place to crash when I first started travelling, so I enjoyed not being right in the middle of the city. Spent two nights up until 6am in the smoking area making friends - much better! Amazing staff too, helpful in a tricky situation ;)

Staff was incredibly friendly and worked hard to make sure that everyone had a great time. Not that it's too hard in a surf shack on the beach in Holland. Pretty much as great as it sounds

No, it's not in the heart of Amsterdam but once you arrive there you don't really want to leave. The staff are welcoming and create a family atmosphere where you can chill out with people from all walks of life. Truly a unique hostel experience. Thanks piggies!!!

I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. It was clean, really awesomely decorated , breakfast was great, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The only things I rated lower for were the location (quite far from Amsterdam, but the beach is really nice!) and the atmosphere. When we were staying there, there were a bunch of really bro type guys on a bender that were rude, judgemental, and very very very drunk/intrusive. Oh well, not the hostels fault!

Really lovely atmosphere and close to the sandy beach. Shuttle service is excellent and the staff are super helpful and fun. Nice for a short break away from the busy city and a great price too. Would definitely recommend to anyone travelling through Europe to meet some cool people!!

Great hostel. I loved being able to have a few days outside of the city, but you can take the shuttle into Amsterdam cheaply and its only 40 minutes away. The beach and the sand dunes are absolutely gorgeous, as is the quaint little town. The atmosphere was amazing, I met so many great people, many of whom I will be staying in touch with. The smoking room and back balcony provide an excellent place to chill out with friends. The staff is excellent, and they hang out with you and are sick!

The staff and the atmosphere of this place is amazing. You meet so many amazing people including Dutch locals. They make you feel like family which makes you not want to leave. Great for travelers looking to get out of the excitement of Amsterdam. Far from the city center, but theres a lot to do right where you are. Highly recommend this place. Shout out to the staff and especially Ed for holding true to his promise. Hope to see you guys soon
