Quality time staying here. The location is ideal, literally less than 5 mins from the station (be aware the ticket from schipol to central station is actually €5.10) The happy hours are really good and run up to 9pm. €4 for two 25cl beers. The shower was very good, best one I've had all year. I travelled solo and had no problem meeting other travellers. Enjoy

The hostel was amazing, the staff were helpful and fun. The smoke room was amazing, with a cheap bar. The rooms were clean and the showers always had hot water. It also had the best included breakfast out of any hostel I have ever stayed at!! Loved every minute of it, thanks flying pig downtown!!

Very loud hostel. But they do give you free earplugs. If you want to party is a great place, if you want to sleep you might consider some other place.

Pretty rad hostel. the private doubles were great and the buzz in the bar downstairs and all the staff were awesome. a bit expensive but that's Amsterdam I guess. We were in a big crew from Australia and the staff helped us out when two of our friends couldn't make it and put two other travelers in the 4 bed private to share the cost. Cheers guys.

One of the best hostels I have stayed in. We stayed in a private room, was greeted with friendly staff, fresh towels, and toiletries too! Great location. Only wish they had a safe in the room. However we used the safe at reception and luggage room after we checked out and was fine. Great facilities ... :)

Hi there, Thank you so much for leaving us a review and tell us about your stay with us. At the moment we are working really hard on renovating all our private rooms, so placing a safe in the room would definitely be a great idea! Thank you so much for the tip! We hope to see you back at the Pig some day! Cheers, The Flying Piggies

Nice hostel with a good breakfast. The only negative thing is that I stayed in a room without a bathroom, and there was only one toilet and one shower available on the first and second floor. In the morning I had to wait quite some time to use the toilet because people were also brushing their teeth there.

Hi there, Thank you so much for your nice review. It means a lot to us that you enjoyed your stay with us. We indeed have mainly rooms with bathrooms (toilets) in the room. On every floor we have a extra toilet and shower on each floor, we even have several toilets on the ground floor and a massive bathroom in the basement :D We hope to see you back at the Pig soon again. Happy travels! Cheers, The Flying Piggies

Highly recommend staying here! Great atmosphere, walking distance from the train station (Centraal), and great facilities. Easy place to meet other travelers!

The hostel staff were all very friendly and helpful. This is one of the largest hostels I've ever been to. They have everything from a full bar to laptop rentals. The rooms are clean and secure. The location was prime and a short 5 minute walk from the Amsterdam Central Train Station.

Good for a short term stay and if you're looking to meet new people, located close to train station and red light district but not many other sights. Bar had good atmosphere, with pool table and separate smoking room. However, there was only one toilet for each floor for those not in ensuite dorms. Bar music can be heard in rooms at night, but ours was above it on level 1 so may be just that dorm.

There's a reason that this hostel is one of the best in the world! Chill atmosphere, great places inside the hostel to hang out and meet people (including an indoor smoking room, pool table, living room with TV), not to mention it's a 2 minute walk from Centraal Station so it's really easy to find and is close to everything. Definitely recommended!

I had never slept in such a nice hostel bed until now! Staff was friendly and helpful. You know they are nice when you chatted to them about something and they remember that the next day (even after the NYE party!) Gr8 to have light & socket by each bed, breakfast very good, location excellent. Will stay again!

The Flying Pig is perfectly located. The beds are comfortable with power sockets and a reading light. The front bar is great - despite being a bit expensive - and the downstairs chill-out area is awesome for taking a break and getting away from the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam. They also have great kitchen facilities, where you can make your own meals. Overall, we enjoyed our time at the Flying Pig, however, some of the staff are a bit cliquey and came across quite abrupt and rude.
