My stay at the Flying Pig was fantastic. The staff was really helpful and were always available. The smoking room was extremely cozy as well and a lot of the sites are within walking distance. Definitely recommend it!
Pretty chill place. Be ready to smoke some weed.
One of the pricier hostels no doubt due to its reputation. However the hostel bar wasn't nearly as loose/fun as I expected. It was VERY obvious who worked there and who didn't... As staff mingled with themselves only and rarely spoke to anyone just staying there. Smoking room was a massive convenience, especially when everywhere else closes. Helpful reception staff minus the male with the glasses who told me "I wouldn't be allowed back in if I forgot my key." Shut up idiot.
Best hostel I've ever been to and best hostel in Amsterdam. Great staff, facilities, and clean. Definitely worth the money! Hope to go back soon

The staff was very friendly and welcoming the rooms was at a good condition and maintained well the atmosphere at the hostel was buzzing
Only downside is that you cant bring friends back even to the bar
The hostel has a great location once you are able to find it for the first time, which is a little difficult. All the staff were great and were super helpful. It's a great place to have some drinks because of the in house bar and great specials. The atmosphere is great as well but the place gets really dirty very fast when there are many people around.
cool vibe, excellent location and a really good and well equipped kitchen. free breakfast was also a welcome bonus. would definitely stay here again.
Pub Crawls were awesome. My friend and I got laid both nights we stayed there. Book a 4-man room and pray you get hot roomies like we did. 10/10 would bang (I mean book) again ;)
As everyone else has said, amazing hostel, we had the 32 bed room but I didn't feel like there was 32 people as it was split into 2 differing rooms, will 100% stay here again and recommend highly
Atmosphere is amazing! Bar/smoke room is a great environment to meet people from all over the world. We are returning guests that hope to return again! We love the flying pig downtown!
Location was excellent! It's a good place to kick off getting to know Amsterdam. The staff were really helpful too. Tends to be a bit noisy at night though, but if you're in town for the nightlife, then Flying Pig's the right place.
Amazing hostel in heart of Amsterdam. Close to everything, smoking room was awesome, made it easy to meet people. Staff were friendly and helpful. Amazing wifi. Double bed bunk was surprisingly spacious and had great size locker. Free breakfast was one of the best, and great kitchen facilities. Only negatives that bathroom was not on the same level (bad after a big night) and room was connected to staff quarters (a bit messy). DEFINITELY recommend staying here!
I had a very good time in the Flying pig. The Staff were super friendly, the location very good, the breakfast very good, and the atmosphere in general is super cool. I met very fun people there. My only problem was the washroom in my room, it was a little smelly, so I used the washrooms and the showers on the basement.
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!
