We were put in a basement room. It was a million degrees and the window didn't open, and it was extremely dirty in our room. When we got to our beds, someone had taken our locker and we were forced to keep all our belongings in lockers upstairs, which was very inconvenient. We left after one night of not sleeping...worst hostel I've ever stayed at.
The staff are beyond excellent, the atmosphere is beyond excellent! This place is a little diamond and if you're considering a stay in Amsterdam then you should certainly consider staying here! The communal area downstairs takes the place from a great hostel to an incredible one! I travelled with 4 others and we all felt exactly the same about the place! Intently perfect!

This hostel for teenage like enjoy the party because the around reception counter can drinking and have music on night time. The room have garbage from the teenage guest throw on the floor. Hostel should have notice to keep clean in the hostel.
This place is so awesome. Plan a long stay in Amsterdam and STAY HERE. So social, perfect for meeting new people but also really clean and comfy for sleeping. Good amount of bathrooms and showers, HUGE kitchen and downstairs hangout area. Staff is helpful. If you don't stay here you will regret it. 10/10!
Great Hostel if you are on the "Amsterdam Mood", meaning partying, coffee shops, etc. Very close from Central Station, Dam Plaza and Red light District, it has it's own bar and smoking place. Wouldn't recommend it for people that is looking for a more quiet enviroment.
When I arrived at the hostel and entered the room I was assigned to, there was someone sprawled out on the bed that was assigned to me, and there were four people crushed into the bunk on top of mine, all of whom were drinking beer and wreaked of alcohol, sweat, and smoke. There were beer cans on the floor next to my bed, and the window opened right onto the patio where people were smoking. I ended up leaving and finding another place to stay.
Nice location, great if you're a partier. Double bed dorm was nice since we were a couple. Good facilities. They had all the things you would want in an Amsterdam hostel - games, food, smoking room, bar, DVDs, etc.
Good hostel in a great location. All staff had excellent English. Great value for money.

It is definitively a party hostel. De bar is almost always full and the atmosphere is very good (for those who want party).
Nice place, bit noisy at night but they provide free earplugs! No wifi on third floor in the rooms and you have to provide own padlock to keep things like passport safe. Good kitchen. Nice smoke room and social areas. Would stay again!
Good hostel. A party place! Wouldn't recommend staying in the big dorms, a lot of noise. Not good for families. But all around a more than okay experience. Perfect if you are a tolerant person who likes to party!
I think one of the biggest problems what how far were the toilets to the dorm rooms. Overall a very good place to stay.
Overall a cool place to come back and chill after wandering around...the smoking room is the place to be to meet others from around the world...the mattresses were horrible, so pay for two and stack em up I guess..lolol very spacious lockers under the beds so everything can fit...for the best coffee shop, head west to Siberië..more locals, great coffee, even better quality green for less money than any other place I went..all in all I'd stay there again..don't ask me about breakfast..I slept in!
This hostel is amazing!! The staff was friendly, great location, the showers and kitchen facilities were both well kept. I stayed in a 32 person room, and it was never overly loud. Plus the atmosphere was awesome, very lively and welcoming.
I had a really great time a the flying pig, it was in a really busy part of the city but I still felt very safe there. Even though it has a reputation for being a bit of a party hostel everyone was really respectful and I had an amazing time. The location was awesome, only about 5 mins from central station which is great if you have a lot of luggage to carry! It was close to lots of head shops and the red light district, and it only took about 15 mins to walk uptown to all the museums!
Top Notch hostel. It would be hard to be bad in such an awe-inspiring city, but this hostel did not disappoint. Shout out to Rafael at the desk for fantastic recommendations and a professional attitude. Shout out to Charlie at the bar for wonderful service and some dance moments. This place truly attracts a great crowd and I will definitely consider staying here again.
Excellent location, the staff is really friendly.. Localization is perfect!

Best hostel! Great staff, friendly environment, always very clean! And they have an on site bar and smoking lounge! What could be better?! I was a young female traveling alone and I felt totally safe at the flying pig
The location was perfect and they had everything I needed for my stay. The people were friendly and the breakfast was decent. Would definitely stay there again!
Great hostel. Would stay here again in the future. Great place to meet people and the staff is full of fun information! I wish breakfast was more than toast and cereal but that was fine, work out ok. I was traveling alone and I met people by just hanging out in the bar area, although the music was a bit loud for conversations sometimes. Great place!
