Love staying here, great hostel!!
Lovely hostel and great staff at the front. Mix up with the room was quickly fixed. Facilities great - pool table, bar, smoking room and lockers. Room was clean, bathroom was fine. My only suggestion is to find a better process for check-in / check out as it can take quite a while when everyone is leaving at the same time!

Nothing to complain about at all!
Myself and my 4 friends stayed here for two nights. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Excellent location, excellent staff and a fab atmospher. My only complaint was after we checked in and went up to our room it had yet to be cleaned, beer cans everywhere and a really horrible stench. We dropped off our bags and went exploring for a few hours and arrived back to a lovely clean room.
Great location and comfy beds. The smell of the smoking area just outside of our room wasn't welcome first thing in the morning and it was a bit of a trek to the toilets but they were clean and tidy.
The elevateur in The FlyingPig hostel has an issue. I used the elevateur multiply times and when pushing a button it responds a little slow. A few times I had to push a button at least twice before the doors would close. Also, the hostel doesn't carry ice in the community refrigerateur for the guests. I had to go upstairs to the bar each time I needed ice and request for a glass of ice to take downstairs. Some simple ice cube containers would be convient for the refrigerateur.
Shower didn't work in our private room, and while the issue was eventually resolved, they were kind of mean about it and acted like it was our fault for not reporting it earlier; Cheap policy of holding a deposit for the room keys, then acting all outraged that we didn't want to wait in a huge line in the morning just to return the keys
I stayed in a few hostel in Amsterdam (Bulldog, Winston...) and flying pig is probably the best. Very close from train station but also from the pedestrian street and the center. Rooms are clean and they provide breakfast. They have a very cosy smoking room and a nice bar. Staff is really nice, from the bar to the reception. Good atmosphere and easy to talk with other guests, which is rare for a hostel of this size in the center of amsterdam. See you soon!
Really cool people gravitate to this hostel. A lot of fun if youre looking to live it up a little in Amsterdam. Its not a quiet little hostel to rest in, it ends up being a great way to start out and end any night, which if thats what youre looking for, is perfect.
Average hostel in Amsterdam. It's all right. Mattresses not very comfy.
Amazing hostel! Really close to the central station and staff was always kind and helpful. The breakfast was a big surprise for me. Was expecting just toast and coffee but there was so much more - juice, eggs, fruits, cereal and even soy milk! Would just change the kind of storage. The cage one can be a bit noisy - especially if you need to get your stuff really early in the morning.
Stayed here for 5 nights. Great staff & social/smoking room/bar area. good tunes in the evening. The shower in room 207 (6 bed mixed dorm) was rubbish. Use the communal shower instead!
Location is good. Staffs here are really nice!!
Great hostel! It was my first time travelling alone and I could have not picked a better hostel. Made so many acquaintances and never felt bored.
This was a solid hostel. The location was great, the staff were great, and it was an all together cool atmosphere. I booked this hostel because it had such good reviews, and it did not disappoint. If you like to party and have fun, this is the place for you.
The hostel is nice, definitely a party place
Great hostel with a fabulous location. The staff were so helpful and friendly, and the place had a fun, relaxed atmosphere. Couldn't fault the cleanliness of it either - didn't see a single unclean room/bathroom.
Perfect place to stay in Amsterdam. Great atmosphere at the bar and smoking room and actually the best location. Staff was super helpful with everything and rooms were much cleaner than any other hostel I have been at during my travels. 100 percent recommended
