Great. There is a bar and a smoking room. We could use lockers to leave baggages even after checking out. Friendly and helpful staff, great atmosphere. One negative: the room was quite stuffy in the morning and the windows couldn't be opened.

This hostel was fine. Nothing special. Too crowded in fact. Not a cool place to sit and chill and meet peopl. I remember I sat down with one girl and she promptly said "sorry this seat's taken..." The staff was pretty cool. The one dude i chilled with was nice. The bathrooms were disgusting. The beds and the rooms were comfy. GREAT LOCATION.


Fantastic social layout and good vibes here as well all the facilities an cleanliness you would hope to find in a hostel - full marks all round. Note it is about a 10min walk to the centre of Amsterdam but it's interesting all the way and not an isssue at all.


Yo man the flying pig is like pretty chill man. Tons of dope people and dope dope dude. If you're like in amsterdam(yea amsterdam brah!) and you're like a mellow dude with good vibes the flying pig is like your place G. I mean dude it's right by the Van Gogh museum, you know the dude with the trippy artwork bro! It's like not far from the Anne Frank house which is like in all seriousness a staunch reminder of the horrors of fascism man, like my dad dude he's such a fascist! Peace out dawg!

Yo dude :P Thanks a lot for leaving a review of your stay! Good to hear you enjoyed yourself while staying with us :) We hope to see you again in the future! Cheers, The Flying Pig Uptown


Myself and Group of friends stayed in this hostel for 3 nights (Thu/Fri/Sat) and left on the sunday, Overall was very happy with the hostel, nothing was a bother, the staff were friendly and welcoming, the beds & room were ideal and just exactly what you want/need if you are only staying for a few days like myself. The main area of Amsterdam (Dam square etc) is approx a 15 minute walk, or a few mins on a tram. Ideal! I would recommend this hostel and I would come back again.
