This place is huge which makes it less personable and not as sociable as you'd think. Honestly, consider staying in a smaller hostel in Amsterdam, you'll find it to be much more rewarding.

I absolutely adored my stay here. The staff were amazing and I was able every day to be able to extend my stay even though the Pig may have appeared full, they were always able to accomodate me. The chill-out room was simply out of this world relaxing and I met an incredible number of interesting people here. I shall return one day. I admit to being surprised at how clean everywhere was too. Hats off to Hayden, Stella and everyone who was similarly affable and fun and extraordinarily helpful.

I stayed only one night but I liked very much, it has a good atmosphere but not so much if you are a single traveller. The beds were clean and so was the bathroom

Great hostel if you're trying to meet people. Staff are super friendly and helpful and it's right across the street from a coffee shop and head shop. Can't beat it.

This was my second consecutive year staying at the hostel and it is exactly what you want for meeting fun, youthful travelers. The dj, smoke room, and bar have a great vibe and offer a perfect social setting! In fact, we often preferred to stay in with the other travelers at night rather than go out 'cause the people attracted to this hostel are great! The showers are clean, free spacious locker provided, and breakfast meets the need for cost savings on a trip.

The pig mural on the ceiling.... Check it out, dancing and smoking pigs in moving clouds, amazingly trippy. The hostel good too, dungeon not so much. Stairs are steep as Mount Everest. X

expensive, great location, decent staff, great if you like weed, good kebab near by, cool people tend to go, and great vibe at bar. Only thing beside the price was the annoying little fee´s of a euro or two for certain things, most other hostel just provided free of charge. Highly dont reccomend if you are bothered by weed and going to sleep late.

This hostel is definitely a party in itself. The staff was very helpful and had great suggestions on food and nontourist locations to see. Definitely would stay here again!

If you can, stay here when visiting Amsterdam. Wifi good. Smoke room is a great place to meet people. This was the most social hostel I've been to in Europe.
