The staff were friendly and very helpful. The atmosphere within the hostel was relaxed and comfortable and made our stay very pleasant.

Much smaller common rooms than than: flying pig downtown, really small kitchen, better than most hostels in Amsterdam that have no common room or kitchen. Good breakfast and close to a big park that have BBQ and other actives.

One of the best hostels I've stayed in! Location was superb. It's about a 10 or 15 minutes stroll from the city centre in a nice quiet area! You're not too far from bars or restaurants here. Staff were really friendly and helpful and the onsite bar had a good atmosphere! Beds were comfortable and facilities really clean every time I used them.

Perfect balance between existing in the museum zone and having cheap beer and a "Smoking Room". Very nice staff!

Excellent hostel, great guest and great staff who are always happy to help as well as chat at the bar. Had our own bathroom in our 6 bed dorm also which was a first for me in a dorm of that size. Location is fantastic, out of the way of the main part of town so it's a bit more quiet but a quick tram or 20 minute walk will get you into the city center if you want to go there. Also had cages under the beds to lock luggage in, I never needed to lock it once!

The flying pig is amazingly located, the staff were 100% of the time helpful and nice people and the bar/smoking area was pretty dope; i was solo travelling and i made a lot of friends there. My room was in the 4th floor so no noise would come. Toilets separated from showers and i kinda liked the idea: showers are bigger and private. Definitely staying here next time.

large room double bed - fine except for the lack of electrical outlets to change things unattended overnight. Also, being in a double bed we had no under bed storage that meant we had to keep our things in our small lockers or unattended. that being said, really clean bathrooms and showers, and staff always willing to help you find your way or sort out any issues. lack of wifi in the rooms (that the staff was unaware of) forced us to spend more time in common spaces (yay to meeting new people!)

Thank you very much for your review! We really appreciate that you took the time to give us some feedback. We are renovating several rooms to make sure there's electrical outlets and a bed light on every bed, we expect for this to be finished soon! We apologize that the wifi in the room was acting up during your stay. Thanks again for the feedback, we hope to see you again! - The Flying Pig Uptown

Really fun and welcoming hostel. Only a couple of niggles... Some 10 bed rooms are very cramped, lockers are really fiddly and loud to use and it's easy to jam your finger, and the front steps should have a handrail for safety! Otherwise was a pleasant stay.

Very nice hostel with great atmosphere. Rooms are very clean and nicly furnished. Location also good for exploring the city and going out. most of the time we could walk. only the breakfast was not that super satisfying, toast with different jam, muesli,eggs and apples. not bad but the one in hans brinker is definitely better. anyway would prefer my stay there to the one in brinker and would definitely come back.

A little expensive and there are a lot of beds per room, but this place is totally worth it. Ridiculously chill.

The common area is very small to eat, navigate on internet… is very small regarding the quantity of people that can be lodge at the hostel, the rooms does not have a natural windows to receive ventilation, the wifi does not reach to the rooms, the rest was fine. Thanks

Hi, thank you for your comments. Unfortunately we are unable to allow open windows on one side of the hostel due to noise complaints. To account for this, all rooms with sealed windows have additional air conditioning units. As standard our wifi range should reach all rooms. We will asses the problem and have maintenance make the necessary repairs. We hope that you come and stay with us again soon! Cheers - The Flying Pig Uptown
