I had to sleep in the same bed of my friend so it wasnt that good.. It is my friend but imagine that i had booked a bed for me and a guy that is not that a big friend.. I would have to share the same bed with him? Just because i booked 2people at the same time? Besides that everything was perfect. Really nice atmosphere really enjoyed it

Thank you for your review! We are glad you enjoyed the hostel. We see that you booked a Queensized bed for 2 people. That's the reason you slept in the same bed as your friend. We also have a lot of single beds. If you decide to stay with us again, make sure you book single beds. Thanks again! - The Flying Pig Uptown

Great hostel, great atmosphere, and friendly staff. Not in a central location but Amsterdam is small enough that you can walk everywhere. Good breakfast, definitely recommend!

Really great place except for a few things: it's a bit outside of Central Amsterdam BUT there's still plenty of stuff in the area and central area is still walkable if you don't mind walking. There's no wifi in the dorms, only downstairs in the bar BUT it's good wifi, was able to skype home to Australia well enough. It's a bit expensive BUT most amsterdam accommodation is and you get a good deal. Staff are really helpful, cheap drinks, beds comfy.

Hands down one of the most welcoming, friendly hostels I've ever stayed in. Slightly out of town, but close to the Leidseplein bar area, the gorgeous Vondelpark and the popular museums, and easily accessible by tram. Really cool, social little bar and smoking room, and the breakfast (8 - 11am) is well worth getting up for. Rooms and facilities are clean and well-looked after (although the toilets / showers are pretty small) and beds are comfy. Staff are so helpful and really make the difference!

This might be my favorite hostel. The atmosphere is great and I met a lot of cool people. You also get an awesome breakfast and there is a pretty good bar too!

Having stayed in many hostels across Europe and America I can say that this hostel is by far the best one I've stayed at, with excellent facilities and amazing atmosphere this place is a hostel that you can relax either in the well stocked bar or in the chilled out smoking room complete with guitar. Start your day with the free breakfast and end it with a few cheeky pints in the bar. The receptionist was amazingly helpful and all staff had a large knowledge of the area. Will be staying again.

The staff was very nice and helpful, the place has a good environment, the dorms could have more light but apart from that I recommend this hostel a lot.

Hey, thank you for giving us some feedback on your stay. We are currently re-fitting new bedside lights into our dorms so that should brighten up any rooms that seemed a little dark. We hope you come and stay with again soon. Cheers - The Flying Pig Uptown

I really didn't have a great time here. The atmosphere was not my cup of tea, the breakfast was yuck and the staff didn't really go out of their way to tell me what was happening around the place

Stayed there for to nigths with a friend of mee...It got a awesome atmosphere..The reception is the bar...Clean hostel,Lockers at the doorms,wi-fi is working very good the room i had was also with shower and toillet,they are organizing free tours and pub crawl and they got a smoking room next to the bar...The only bad thing I could say about the hostel was the breakfast...It was poor but i think if they improve it,it will be perfect...Would suggest it to friends and would stayed there again

Small and far away from the main atractions hostal. Though the staff is very helpful and the bathrooms and rooms are clean enough

Thank you for your review! We appreciate all feedback in order to improve our customer service. We are indeed a bit further from Central Station, Dam Square and the Red Light District. (20 minute walk) We are close to the Museum Square, the Vondelpark and the Leidseplein area, which are highlights to other travelers. Also we like the fact that our bar isn't massive, it motivates to interact. :-) Thanks again for your feedback! - The Flying Pig Uptown

Very clean, good free breakfast, some rooms are better than others. Very close to museums, walking distance to the center but a tram ride away from train station. The kitchen is unavailable from 10 pm till 1 pm which sucks. A supermarket 5 minutes away. The smoking public is all in the special room, so unless somebody gets really high and makes a racket in the room, you can be free from it. Good for a long stay, not ideal if you need to dash in and out of town very quickly.

Hi, Thanks for your feedback, we're glad that you enjoyed your stay. It is unfortunate that we must restrict our kitchen opening times to between 1pm and 10:30pm but it is crucial for our morning breakfast service and to ensure a thorough clean after the kitchen is closed. We hope you come and stay with us again! Cheers - The Flying Pig Uptown

We stayed at the hostel over new years period so bear that in mind but the atmosphere was really good lot's of people downstairs having a drink and theres a smoking room so generally downstairs alot of people who you can get to know and meet. The hostel is probably a 15-20min walk into the main area like dam square but that was fine for us! The staff were really really helpful and happy to help whenever! Was a bit expensive but what do you expect over new years eve! Recommend definatly!
