Didn't think there was much atmosphere to the place with everyone just getting baked in the smokers room, seemed a little unnecessary with all the other coffee shops close by. Staff were super nice though and the facilities and location is great!
I cannot say enough good things about this hostel. The people were great, and the staff would probably give you the shirt off their backs. My friend and I had to stay an extra night because our flight was cancelled, and the staff helped us so much getting another room and helping us get situated for unexpected trouble. Highly recommended in my book.
Excellent location and staff, the bar its a little overpriced but anything else it is just great
The outlets at each bed were very helpful and the breakfasts was great, but we found a dead mouse on our floor in the morning.
Smaller rooms are great for sleeping. Big dorms aren't bad either. Location could not be better. Amsterdam is a bike city but The Flying Pig is so central it becomes a walking city. Stay here before its full!
Loved it here, best location, easy walk from train station, can walk to tons of shops and restaurants & easy access to tram stop. Everyone was super friendly, bartender made up my weird alcoholic milkshake requests and thought it was great. Would stay here again. Bathrooms are a bit up a trek up some sketchy stairs if you have the basement rooms but who cares? You're bound to make a friend on the way there. The showers are amazing and cleanest I've seen, The entire place is kept extremely well.
A nice place to stay in Amsterdam. It´s very easy to meet new people there and to feel the vibe of this great city. The location could not be better.
Super awesome place. Just stayed for a night but I already want to go back. Everyone was nice and liked to have fun so it made for a great atmosphere.
Highly recommended, great hostel to stay in. Great location And price!
Great and fun hostel to stay in. Very centrally located. The bar area is great if you don't feel like going out. The rooms are nice and heated, which made it very comfortable.

Hands down dopest place to stay. I have never been to a place with so much culture inside of it. If you are going to Amsterdam you would have to be crazy or ignorant not to try staying here. I will forever remember this place for how incredible it is and as the first and last place I ever did shrooms.
Very nice hostel. The only downside is that Amsterdam seems to attract many large groups of Brits, making it a little less social.
6 lads booked whole 6 man dorm to our selfs , very clean and beds are super comfy ! Bathroom had amazing shower , while room cleaned everyday , staff are great laugh, covers all type people if want drink or want smoke everyone wins , feel very safe as one key card per person , if want to party hard and get in early hours of morning this is place for you !!!
Great location only 5 minutes walk from the main station and the red light district. The staff were very friendly and helpful, there are free earplugs which we didn't need and you can rent towels for 3euro each which you get back when you return them. The rooms are fine, first time we had double bed bunks, with lockers/cage storage, which require your own padlock. Free breakfast the best we've had! Downstairs is a nice kitchen/lounge area, plus a bar and smoking room, everything you could need!
One of my favorite hostels, if not my favorite one. Just a 5 minute walk from Centraal Station, with lots of bars, food, coffeeshops, and the Red Light District nearby. Everyone I met was really cool and the smoking room is a nice add. The bar was also a nice place to hang out and meet other travelers. I would definitely stay here again!
You must stay at this Hostel if you like partying, meeting great people, having the best location (3minutes from the HBF) and if you want to have the best time in Amsterdam! The staff is amazing with suggestions, the place has a perfect atmosphere if you are with others or wanting to travel alone. The Wifi works great everywhere, the breakfast was amazing (eggs, actual fresh fruit like bananas, oranges, apples, toast, jam, nutella, butter, cereal etc.) The rooms and beds were very comfortable!
This hostel is a blast! I didn't even go anywhere else at night just stayed in this hostel. I was extremely sick while I was here and the staff were beauties and helped me out a ton! The rooms were awesome and everything was super clean! I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else if I ever return. Cheers guys!
Stay was great, unfortunately never made it up in time for breakfast so I can't rate the food but the the atmosphere and overall quality of the stay was beyond what I imagined. An excellent first trip to Amsterdam, will definitely be returning In the summer.
