thisn hostel was really good, we stayed for 4 nights and didn't have any issues with our stay. The facilities were great, very clean, staff were very friendly and it had a very friendly atmosphere in general. The location is around a 20 minute walk to the city centre, but there is a great network of trams nearby that can get you anywhere you wanna be. Would definitely recommend to friends and family

Good hostel with free breakfast. The location is good, like 20-30 mins walking to the redlight but you've a lot things to see while you walk there, so its pretty good. Good wifi, and comfy beds. Bathrooms are a little tiny, but its ok. Kitchen is good and have everything you might need.

Hostel is near vondelpark so it's not close to central. Other things are just fine! I would probably stay here again

Party hostel. Amazing atmosphere. Superb look for the common room/smoking room/bar. Excellent free buffet breakfast with hardboiled eggs, meat, cheese, cereals, fruits, toasts... Staff is so nice and helpful and laidback! I loved this place a LOT! Good job guys, keep up the good work :) My only complaint, was concerning the 14 bed rooms, where when I booked on Hostel World, I didn't find it clear that I was booking a queen-sized bed for a solo traveler... Just be careful when booking :)

This hostel is amongst my favorite in Europe! The ambiance is amazing, the staff is simply the best, the free breakfast is delicious and varied, the rooms and bathrooms are clean (bathrooms are VERY SMALL though, but there are plenty, which is essential for a big hostel),... I loved this place a lot! Keep up the good work :)

Great hostel! It has all a backpacker needs. Good atmosphere at the bar and good staff. The location is also good since it's close to many atractions in the city.

A bit far from the central area but really nice staff! They give you all the help to see the city and the main points! Breakfast could be better but was ok. Is a good hostel to stay, not the best one but is a good one

Loved my stay at the flying pig. The only down fall I'd say is the location, being a little out of the way of everything, but is next to a very nice and big park so that was nice. The bar has good prices on beer, and cheap pizza. Felt very at home the whole time with the staff being so great.

A really really great hostel!! The staff, in particular, was amazing--so friendly and helpful. The hostel basically has everything you could want, and it's a pretty great value. My only complaint is about the bathrooms--the ones with the toilets in them are TINY--it's difficult to use the sinks without accidentally spraying water everywhere (which meant that the floors were frequently wet when I went to use them, which is kinda gross). One sink should be fixed, it's difficult to turn off.

The staff is very kind and helpful and the hostel has a great environment, really good to meet new people. The kitchen might be a bit small but it has all the needed equipment.

Amazing hostel! i would definitely go back whenever i visit Amsterdam! The best thing was the fastest Wifi as well as the luggage locker for early check in-ers and outers ;) Also, breakfast was amazing! There's nothing to complain or say anything about this hostel! Perfect!!!

This Hostel was by far the best we have experienced in a big city! Everything we wanted from it was far exceeded. The common room/ bar is somewhere where you want to spend time compared to most hostels. The staff are great and bend over backwards to help and provided great tips such as for where to go. Sure it's a 30 minute walk from the red light district but in my opinion this area has a superior and more genuine selection. Ps there is a ripper €5 Italian joint El Pino 5 minutes away.
