Walking distance from central train station. The breakfast was excellent with cereals, fruits, juice toast etc. fun staff and indoor smoking area so you can buy coffee shop products and smoke them at the hostel. Overall awesome would stay again!

Awesome place to stay. Great location (5 min. from central train station) and a lively, upbeat atmosphere. There's a bar in the lobby, a room in the back to light up, and free breakfast provided every morning in a downstairs dining room, all of which make for a great environment to meet fellow travelers. Staff is friendly and helpful and cleanliness is standard for a hostel.

Flying Pig was an alright hostel! Two staff members were really nice Jed and Rachel! But if you don't smoke weed don't plan on having a blast! Room was ok, beds were uncomfortable! The overall stay was fun, but too many old people there!

The Location was very good, right at the shopping street of Amsterdam, close to many good places. We had booked a room for 32 people, but it didn't seem like that many people as the room was divided in two parts. The beds were really comfortable! It wasn't especially social, no common activities if you're looking for that. But there was a good pub and a chill atmosphere. Helpful and nice staff.

Nice place, good ambience. They will propose you activities everyday and will go out with the people every night what is really something different and valuable. 😉

I was looking for a flaw in here but... what a great hostel. It's hard to reach 100% but this hostel might as well be the best hostel in Europe. It's awesomely located, it is really secured, you cannot differentiate the staff from other customers as they are super friendly but as soon as they are behind the desk, working, they are very professional and beyond useful. You might think (with a smoking room) that it would be dirty but they clean it every night. And finally it's affordable. Perfect.

The first hostel I have ever stayed at, and it was amazing. Come here for a relaxed and chill vibe. The bar in the Hostel is nice and cheap with a great selection. The smoking room is really social and a great place to hang out.

Nice hostel, well located in the center of the city. Bunk beds were not bad but they were not too comfy either.

Awesome place!

This is a party hostel in the centre of Europe's party capital. As such, it tends to attract a menagerie of douche bags and alcoholics, (mostly from Australia and Ireland). The dorms are huge and I was constantly awoken by 18 year olds who were too intoxicated to be aware of their surroundings. Despite all this, the staff was excellent and kept their facilities very clean. Great place if you want your time in Amsterdam in a cross-faded haze with a bunch of other white people in their late 20s.

Fun party hostel, not great for solo travelers. Some of the bartenders need to get over themselves.
