I just loved this place! The staffs are really good, the breakfast is rich of options, is close to the train station and red light distric. Smoking area was my favorite spot at the hostel
Had an amazing stay at the flying pig ! If anyone I know will be travelling to Amsterdam and is looking for good location, a great atmosphere, and just an all around great stay I will reccommend it. My friend and I were there a couple weeks ago and couldnt have been happier !
Great hostel. Prices are a little steep for the number of beds per room, but that's normal in Amsterdam. Location couldn't be better, just steps away from the Centraal train station. Staff were friendly. Atmosphere was busy and loud in the main lobby bar, even on a Sunday night. Drink prices are okay, nothing spectacular. Pool table was in session the whole evening. Seemed like lots of groups and not much interaction between them. Good breakfast of fruit, a selection of breads/cereals and COFFEE
a little hard to sleep during the day, but it's OK...
Great place right in the middle of Amsterdam, only a few minutes walking distance from Centraal station. Has a whole room set up for smoking, with cushions on the floor, plus a cool bar area.
It's the best hostel that I've stayed in so far. Great hostel bar, great staff. If you are going to Amsterdam, this is the place that you want to stay.
Cheap, perfect position, clean, very friendly and young atmosphere. My room was close to the reception, and sometimes there were loud noises at night. My bunk bed wasn't very firm and trembled every time the other person moved... he moved and it was like a earthquake for me, and vice versa. It is ok if you want to save money. But maybe I was just not very lucky with the bed.
Quality time staying here. The location is ideal, literally less than 5 mins from the station (be aware the ticket from schipol to central station is actually €5.10) The happy hours are really good and run up to 9pm. €4 for two 25cl beers. The shower was very good, best one I've had all year. I travelled solo and had no problem meeting other travellers. Enjoy
The hostel was amazing, the staff were helpful and fun. The smoke room was amazing, with a cheap bar. The rooms were clean and the showers always had hot water. It also had the best included breakfast out of any hostel I have ever stayed at!! Loved every minute of it, thanks flying pig downtown!!
Very cool hostel and the best located flying pig for people getting the train! Staff were sound and it was a nice stay. Stayed with my boyfriend and we both enjoyed it. Comfy and warm and the best smoking room around! :D
Very loud hostel. But they do give you free earplugs. If you want to party is a great place, if you want to sleep you might consider some other place.
One of the best hostels I've ever stayed t. You won't go wrong if you stay here
The bed was a little squicky and the shower was small but the team was great. Good vibe fun time!
Pretty rad hostel. the private doubles were great and the buzz in the bar downstairs and all the staff were awesome. a bit expensive but that's Amsterdam I guess. We were in a big crew from Australia and the staff helped us out when two of our friends couldn't make it and put two other travelers in the 4 bed private to share the cost. Cheers guys.
One of the best hostels I have stayed in. We stayed in a private room, was greeted with friendly staff, fresh towels, and toiletries too! Great location. Only wish they had a safe in the room. However we used the safe at reception and luggage room after we checked out and was fine. Great facilities ... :)
Nice hostel with a good breakfast. The only negative thing is that I stayed in a room without a bathroom, and there was only one toilet and one shower available on the first and second floor. In the morning I had to wait quite some time to use the toilet because people were also brushing their teeth there.

We enjoyed our time at this hostel. A very relaxed vibe, but by no means boring because of everything going on. The staff were friendly and for the most part the facilities were okay. I did see a couple mice run across the floor of our room though... The hostel does post signs warning people not to bring food into the room, so it's not entirely their fault I suppose. My friend and I booked the 32-bed and found it a bit odd that we shared a double bed, but it was okay because we are friends.
Highly recommend staying here! Great atmosphere, walking distance from the train station (Centraal), and great facilities. Easy place to meet other travelers!
The hostel staff were all very friendly and helpful. This is one of the largest hostels I've ever been to. They have everything from a full bar to laptop rentals. The rooms are clean and secure. The location was prime and a short 5 minute walk from the Amsterdam Central Train Station.
