Great party hostel, lots of people here to smoke, drink, and make friends. Excellent location right in the middle of the Centrum, a short walk away from nightlife at Leidseplein and Rembrandtplein, but with plenty of bars nearby in the Red Light District. WiFi everywhere in the building. There's a smoking room and a bar/common room. Great free breakfast. One issue is that the two suites in the basement don't have toilets right next to them - you have to climb up to the ground floor.

Great location, friendly staff, very squished rooms. Okay value for money.

The folks at Flying Pig were great. Super friendly, great atmosphere, and easy access to Central Station and most of downtown. I'd definitely stay here again.

Hi there, Thank you so much for taking the time time to leave us a review. We can always learn a lot from everyone's experiences. We are sorry to read the room wasn't clean when you arrived. Our check-in time is 15:00 but we always let people go to the room early so they can put their luggage in the room. We are sorry the reception didn't inform you that the room wasn't cleaned yet. We will contact you personally to find out what exactly happened. Kind regards, The Flying pi

This hostel had great wifi, clean beds and well designed showers. The common areas are the real highlight though. This place has a massive smoking room (whatever you want to smoke is okay) with big pillows and a great atmosphere. There is also a non smoking area with a pool table and bar. Staff were chill. My friends and I stayed elsewhere in Amsterdam and this was definitely the best place. I would stay here again.

The best feature of the hostel is the location,quite close to the important places of Amsterdam. Nevertheless, it is not definitely the place to stay if u are looking forward to meeting people interested in walking through amsterdam and visiting museums, as most people tend to stay either in the smoking room or coffee shops. Additionally, I found the staff a bit rude, as the reception was always crowded. They never looked eager to propose things to do. In sum, too expensive for what it offers...

Great stay, only complaint was that the under bed lockers needed very large locks and were broken in places. Atmosphere was fantastic.

As a solo traveler, this wasn't my favorite hostel for meeting other people. Breakfast in the morning was great and you can't beat the location, but I found it hard to connect with other travelers (who mostly seemed to be groups). Otherwise, a great hostel!

amazing location and a complete party place. Awesome atmosphere and good bar. Staff members are friendly and ready to help. Had a good stay.

Everything was very nice. Maybe just the hostel is so big that it doesn´t make you feel at home like other hostels. But the upside of that is that you get the chance to meet many people and if you´re an outgoing person you´ll have hell of a time.

The flying pig is a great place to stay if you're looking for the Amsterdam experience. Perfect location close to coffee shops and the red light district. Staff is friendly and make good suggestions. Kitchen facilities made it easy to travel cheap. Beds were small you can't sit up in them. You would never know there were 32 beds in the room, rooms are quiet and people are respectful at night and during mid day naps. Staff did there best to keep up with cleaning after hundreds of partying people.

There seemed to be only 1 staff at the reception while queues for check in and inquiries were constantly long. The location is the only good thing about the hostel. Overall the cleanliness of the hostel is just average.

Having stayed at the uptown pig last year I thought I would give this one a go this year as it's near the station, its so much better than the uptown site, much bigger better facilities. I only stayed one night but I was with a friend so we had one of the queen size bunks, these are brilliant as they are much better than the single beds. The only problems I had was the guy who got too high who was in the same room and was throwing up all night and the other double room guests being loud.

The bathroom door in the room I stayed at could not be closed. So the bathroom light would turn on and off through out the whole night as I move since the light is a sensor light. My pillow is right next to the open door. The sleeping condition was not good at all. Other than that, the staff was very nice and very informative about the tourist attraction and things need to take note to have a smooth sight seeing timetable. The location is great.
