Lovely hostel,location and staff. I had a good time. Thanks Cheers! P.S : Please extend your happy hours by 2 hrs. 6-7 is a very short time.

The staffs here are so friendly and kind and the breakfast was good. The only thing that I didn't like here was it got so noisy outside until 3,4am. It's a party hostel but sometimes hard to sleep with that noise.

On my month and a half long trip through Europe, this was probably my worst hostel. That's not to say it's bad, just that it's very underwhelming. I signed up for a 6 bed dorm expecting 6 people in a cramped room. Instead, they stuffed 8 people (2 of the beds were doubles) into a closet. Space was limited, as expected in a hostel, but it was a bit ridiculous. The staff were kind but didn't really know what they were doing half the time. Location was a bit far from downtown, but the area is nice.

Well run hostel, sorted out an issue I had with my room very quickly and easily. Good location, friendly atmosphere and very chilled out. Definitely recommend to anyone else. I was with 3 other people but was in a room by myself as I had a separate booking for different dates and it was no problem making friends.

It's a nice hostel overall, but quite big and commercial. The entrance is complicated and you have to go up and down narrow staircases a lot. There's a nice bar with cheapish drinks, but it was too loud for me to relax on my second night. The staff were very helpful, but rushed off their feet and they didn't have much time to help me out (I heard one person was sick, so I can forgive this!). Also the showers weren't so fab - no space to change. I liked renting bikes though, and I'd stay again.

Such a fun time - great hostel for young people who want to experience Amsterdam nightlife. Stayed in an 8 bed mixed room and met lots of people. Bar is great for a drink - good atmosphere etc. the hostel itself is quite expensive if you don't book it early but well worth it. Location is right by vondelpark which is great for chilling. Overall had a great time there and would definitely come back.

The atmosphere is great in this hostel! It's always very chill in the reception/smoking area which we loved.. The rooms were very clean and the beds were comfortable. Would definitely stay again!!

There was a huge cobweb in our room. So many steps. The bar was great though. Cheap prices!

Hi there, Thanks for your comments. I'm sure you asked a brave staff member (or room mate) to take the web down? The building is indeed typically tall with many stairs. Feeling like a true Amsterdammer comes with a price of being fit... which makes our beer taste even better! Hope to see you again some day. Cheers, The Flying Pig Uptown

A nice hostel located perfectly in Amsterdam. A good mix of "party people" and regular guests. The breakfast was okay and the bar was good. The beds where good. Good safe storage. The cons where that the ac was not working and our room where really hot, the showers where not clean, tight corridors and the toilets was very small. Suited best for 18-25 year olds that want to have a nice time for a fair price.

Hi there, Thanks for leaving a review of your stay with us! We are happy to see you enjoyed yourself here. We are very sorry the airconditioning wasn't working properly! We called a technician straight away to fix this! 'Luckily'Amsterdam doesn't have a lot of hot nights per year. The showers get cleaned several times a day, but if you find them not clean enough, you can always let us know! There is 24 hours someone there to help out and clean :) Thanks for mentioning this!

I had an amazing stay at the uptown flying pig hostel in this past week. We were made to feel instantly welcome with friendly and attentive staff. My time in Amsterdam was made much better overall because this hostel was so good. Words are unable to fully describe how much I would recommend this hostel as a place to stay for anyone visiting Amsterdam! Thankyou flying pig and all employees for allowing me to have such an amazing time within the hostel over those few short days!

Amsterdam was our first stay in a hostel on our 40 day long Europe trip and it was a good glimpse of the hostel world! Everyone was super friendly and helpful even booked our bus ride to Paris. The smoking room was a total plus since it was so well Air conditioned. Breakfast was simple but tasty and best of all free! No complaints here maybe, the size of the stairs but hey when in Holland you have to expect it! Will definitely stay there again and totally recommend:)

This wasn't a bad hostel- just be aware of the atmosphere you're walking into. It's definitely a party hostel and if you're in one of the bigger rooms (we were in a 12 person room) it will be difficult to sleep unless you pass out after a long night. It's very secure- there's big cages under the bed you can fit a large suitcase/backpack in and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. The bar area makes it really easy to meet people and the smoking room is a unique feature. Have fun!

Flying pig is right, this place is a pig sty, but very good atmosphere. The rooms are crowded and hot in the summer, but the staff is really nice and helpful. The bathrooms are a mess. Good atmosphere, but not too quality rooms.

Hi there, Thanks for your comments. Indeed you are right about the atmosphere created by all our guests feeling at home at the Pig. Good to hear you enjoyed the vibe with us too. We do our best to keep the bathrooms clean and tidy but we'll address your comment internally. Our staff are awesome and can do almost everything to help but besides providing fans, beating a rare Dutch heat wave is something nobody can ;-) We hope to see you back some day! Ciao, The Flying Pig Uptown
