After being told by so many people to stay at this legendary hostel, my expectations were pretty high; this hostel went above and beyond those predispositions. You will not be disappointed!

Good lounge bar and chill area. No computer facility to print things. Excellent location in Dam Square close to everything. Great pool and bar area and chill area smoking room. Would be better if bedroom bathrooms had soap dispensers.

The rooms are packed with beds and aren't the most clean, but you really can't beat the location and atmosphere. If you're looking to indulge in Amsterdam's finest products, then this is the place for you.

Good location and good place for party!

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.

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

Good big hostel! It is a party place but you can also chill and sleep at night. It has a perfect location near the main square and it seems super safe around there. Good bar and smoke room.

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...
