Great hostel, lots of character. Very clean and comfortable. Even has a smoking room where you can smoke weed. Little expensive, but I guess that's Amsterdam.

I originally was booked at this hostel for one night, but I ended up staying 3 because I loved it so much. The atmosphere is great and every staff member was kind and approachable. I would definitely go back to this hostel if and when I am back in Amsterdam. Thank you for a great weekend, uptown pigs!

Upon arrival, the reception staff was very friendly. The guy even carried my massive suitcase all the way to the top floor, for which I was truly grateful. The buzz on the main floor was infectious, and it really felt like the place to be. Very cool! A negative aspect of my brief stay was that I had to pay couple euros here and there for little unnecessary things such as keeping my large suitcase in the back room and for the use of the computer. Public computers would be nice.

Very fun hostel. The staff are great and very approachable. Half the time they'll just be hanging out in the bar or smoking area.

Great hostel in every way. smoking room available for those who are interested. The bar stays quiet due to thy low key location (away from tourist attractions). beautiful place to stay for a low key stay in Amsterdam.

I've stayed in this hostel twice, and both times have been excellent. This time myself and my sister stayed for four nights. The rooms and toilets were nice and clean and the staff were so friendly!! The only downside was that the showers were scalding hot, too hot to stand under sometimes!! Overall though I would deffo go back 😊

Hi there, Thank you so much for your nice review!! :) It's great to hear you had such a good time with us. Sorry to hear about the showers though! The temperature can be controlled in all our showers, but we will ask our maintenance team to take a look! Thanks for letting us know. Cheers, The Flying Pig Uptown

GREAT HOSTEL. Despite being above a bar, the rooms are actually very quiet so you can get some shut eye when you call it a night. The bathrooms were very clean. Breakfast had a lot of variety, multiple cereals, breads, jams, nutella, fruits, and hard boiled eggs. Also, they have a water tap where you can get water at any point - which was much needed! Each bed had an individual light and outlet, and AMAZING pillows. This is one of the best hostels in my experience!

Very close to the major museums of the city! Common areas were a bit cramped though--I much prefer the downtown location to the uptown one

Everything was great except me and a friend got two beds and were given 1 queen size bed with no warning or discount for having to share a room.

Hi there, Thank you very much for leaving this review! It's great to hear you had such a good time with us :) I am sorry for the confusion about your bed, but the queen size bed is the one you booked online! We will never give two people one big bed together if not requested or booked beforehand. The queen size bed is a really nice, cheap option though if you don't mind sharing a bed! We are sorry you didn't notice booking this. Thanks again for your time! Cheers The Flying Pig Uptown

Awesome place to stay! The atmosphere is great and everyone was super friendly. There's a bar in the basement with a good cheap variety and a large smoking room close by. Less than a 5 min walk to the metro and about a 15 minute walk to dam square.

Enjoyed our stay. Be ready to climb some serious stairs and walk a solid 20-25 minute to central station.

Tiny room & bathroom, but I didn't find it a bother since I was out all day anyway. Convenient power outlet and shelf next to bed. Smoking area for those looking to fully indulge in Amsterdam lifestyle. Great staff, very helpful with where to go and what to see. Staff checked at least twice a day to see if everything was clean enough. Overall great stay!

Really nice environment and in a good location for the price. Staff friendly. Only negatives were that the shower temperature couldn't be turned down.

Comfy beds, clean bathrooms, and awesome hang out bar/smoking area! Great vibes to take advantage of but also walking distance to everything you want to see in Amsterdam!

Super cramped rooms with little ventilation. Great breakfast. Really good location - within walking distance to almost every major site.
