The music was very loud when I arrived in the hostel, I couldn't even understand the instructions at the reception. The breakfast was a little poor of options. The bedrooms was small. Beside of that, has a nice place to share (eat and drink) and a perfect location.
The shower was the only negative; bad water pressure and it was very cold.
I only stayed for one night, so I didn't get to experience all this hostel had to offer. The location was EXCELLENT, close to Centraal Station and Dam Square. The bed of comfy and the wifi signal was great. I didn't go into the smoking room, but I liked that the option was there. My only complaint was no other toilets on the floor except for the one in the room. That's a minor issue though. I would totally stay here again!
Didnt spend much time in the hostel as I was visiting friends, however for the times I was there it was spot on. Literaly everything you want from a hostel is here and done right. Location is especially good.
Favorite hostel in Europe thus far! The atmosphere is awesome and the staff and all the people staying here are simply awesome. If you dislike getting little sleep and people being awake at all hours then this might not be the place for you but I loved the relaxed and chill atmosphere. Bathrooms and showers are clean, breakfast is good and wifi works all over the hostel. Smoke room is awesome! Tons of pillows and books. Location is also awesome, close to everything.
This hostel is perfectly located in the city center, right near the Red light District. In the lobby it has a bar/club . There were a lot of people partying there until 2-3 pm. If you want to party and have a lot of fun this is the place to stay , but if you want to have a quiet vacation this is not the place for you :)
Great stay, very happy all round

I had an excellent stay at the flying pig. I was only in Amsterdam for one night and the flying pig met all my needs. Great atmosphere makes finding new friends easy, great location is only a few minutes from tons of sights and the red light district. There's a smoking room downstairs where you can smoke and make additional new friends. All in all a great stay! 10/10
Great location right in the middle of everything and you can walk everywhere. Overpriced for what it is, we had a private room and it was tiny and not the cleanest.
Amazing location, fun bar and real friendly. Lots recommended to us by staff
Exactly what we were looking for in an Amsterdam Hostel. Will stay here again and recommend it to others.
Great location for party and sightseeing Trips around Amsterdam. Good Location in the Center of the city, you can see everything by feet or bike. Great smokers room and bar, good to socialize to other travelers. Not the best choice for couples. Its more a Party location, but if you like to party. Its the location for you.
Flying Pig has really good locations and really good staffs. The breakfast is really good. everything will be perfect if the music will not continued untill midnight. However, they provide earplugs to help me go to sleep. I highly recommended it!

Super easy to find once you leave Central Station. You have everything you could need nearby. Also, the breakfast is BOMB so don't miss out since it's free. People were friendly and the smoking room was great. Wish I could've stayed longer.
The showers are pretty medieval. Beyond that, great location, awesome staff, and the smoking room is too good.
One of the best hostel breakfasts!
I enjoyed the hostel. I stayed in a private room, which had a toilet and shower. The private rooms are on the top floor (4th), so it's rather quiet. I didn't hang out much at the hostel, but from what I saw it looked like a great place to meet people. Common area had a bar (drinks/some food), pool table, tables/chairs, etc. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good - typical cereals, juice, milk, breads, etc. Overall good experience!
I loved the Flying Pig! And that's an understatement I'd say! We had rollaway lockers which were very convenient and I loved the hang out areas! Free breakfast with quite a few options! Wifi worked great and staff were very friendly and helpful!! The shower area was also very well kept and looked newly renovated or something it was so nice! It was such a great experience that it ruined me for all other hostels I stayed at for the rest of my journey. Cannot give enough praise!
Great place to stay, very easy to meet people if single traveler. Awesome bar
Great location, 5 mins walk to Central Station and surrounded by many other bars and restaurants. Great amenities, bar had descent prices. If you're for a quiet night of sleep, definitely not the place for you, but if you're looking to party and stay up late, you've found the right place.
