Great hostel. Close to central station and not a far walk to the Jordaan area. The smoking room is tight. Best place to stay in Amsterdam for sure
Great hostel awesome location friendly staff.... Very big. Nice common area... Smoking room was so cool and chill... Loved my stay but for some reason my friends and I had to share a bed? There were four of us and none of us are dating so while it wasn't awkward bc we knew each other, it was a surprise. I didnt want to pay 37 euros a night to share a double bed even with a friend... Try and keep that for couples maybe ?
Essentially a weed-hostel but hey, you're in Amsterdam so what else can you expect... It did have a fun here though!
The Flying Pig is the best - stay here, you won't regret it. The facilities are clean and spacious. The bar and smoking room is a great area to meet people. It is in a really convenient location close to the train station. The breakfast in the morning is standard continental. The staff are really friendly. If you are looking for a chilled out weekend in Amsterdam it is a good place to be (I wouldn't describe it as a party hostel, maybe look at St Christophers if that is what you are interested)
Best hostel I've ever stayed in. People are great and the atmosphere is amazing. Every night the bar and smoking room is packed with friendly people all wanting to talk and share stories.
The Flying Pig was a great first stop! The location was prime and close to the station which was handy and the staff are super helpful, kind and accommodating as well :) Everything was well kept with a thorough cleaning of everywhere daily! Rooms were a decent size as was bedding and you had pretty much all facilities one could need including a filling breakfast :) All in all was a great hostel and would stay again/recommend!
Fantastic stay. Location was perfect. Staff and facilities were excellent. Would highly recommend. Would definitely stay here again.

Great atmosphere in the bar/smoking area. Decent drink specials. I was travelling alone and met so many people at this hostel. Good location as the centraal station and major attractions are all within walking distance. Could get a little noisy at night. Overall good experience I would go back.
Was an awesome time, but my key card stopped working a lot and I kept having to go back to the receptions desk to reset it.
Great time, excellent staff and facilities. Lots of fun :-)

By far one of the best hostels i have ever stayed in. Awesome vibes, the staff members are really cool and super helpful. Rooms were big and clean. Nice place to come back to after a long day of traveling/ sightseeing/ getting stoned.
This was my fourth time in the Flying pig hostel and it will not be the last. Again everything went smoothly with the booking, staff were 100%, the atmosphere perfect and above all location couldn't be better. I would live here if I could ;) Thanks again for making our stay perfect.
A great stay! Good location, yummy breakfast and excellent services as they even provides free ear plugs!!
The location is great. I enjoyed staying in the smoking room where you can meet many people. The thing that I didn't like the safe boxes under the beds where they are not safe and mine wasn't easy to pull out. Also the hostel is overpriced during the weekend. when I checked out the staff asked me if I can donate the deposite of the key to charity or I will want it back which I didn't like how it sounded. they could easily put a charity box next to the counter. Everything else was good.
The breakfast and the showers were very good, and excellent location! There were no bathrooms close to the room, slightly inconvenient for middle of the night. The lockers under the bed could be fixed or replaced - the wires were poking out and they did not roll well. Overall would recommend during the week though I think the prices jump quite a bit the weekends...
Great place! Everyone was so friendly (staff and guests alike) and it was a great atmosphere. It was always fun hanging out by the bar and talking to other guests. Rooms were clean and had locker storage under the bed, which was perfect. Great location and knowledgeable staff!
It was a great! The Flying Pig is the best hostel in Amsterdam!
Great hostel for meeting people especially at the bar and smoking area. Very clean and well kept rooms and common areas and the free breakfast is a bonus! Staff are few and far in between especially at the front counter, there is only one person ever working there so waiting in line for a while is quite common.
I really loved this place, The staff was really nice and really seemed to love working there. Breakfast was good, differentk bread for toast (and available all day) and this was the first hostel I have ever seen with soy milk!!! The smoking room is really laid back with tons of pillows, great for smoking or just chilling with your laptop. Theres a tour everyday which i found out on my last day that comes to get you at the hostel. Pool Table, foosball, great TV and huge kitchen, clean.
Great location! The bar downstairs is always fun!
