Staff were really helpful and great. The bar area was good although a bit small. Rooms and toilet and shower were cleaned daily. Needed a key card to enter the building which is a good idea. Overall good place to stay at.

Great staff, clean room, great wifi. Rooms were a little damp and dark (downstairs room) and would have been nice if we could open a window for fresh air, but this only a minor thing and would definitely stay again.

Really good hostel, they clean everyday, just the shower of my room was kinda unstable, sometime it would heat, sometime not. but there were private showers in the corridors so it wasn´t as much of a problem.

The staff at this hostel is hands down the best I have ever met! Not only are they extremely helpful and friendly but they go out of their way to ensure that you have an amazing time. One staff member in particular, Terry, is amazing!! I lost some money in my room and he did the honorable thing of turning it to the reception, which I was extremely grateful for. I HIGHLY recommend that you stay here if you are looking for a good time in Amsterdam!

I always stay here on my visits to Amsterdam. Really great location, right by the Vondelpark and the museums, close to everything else. Staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. The vibe in the hostel is relaxed, chilled but everyone still has a good time. Can't recommend enough!

The Flying Pig Uptown was a great experience for me. Especially I enjoyed the laid back atmosphere and the smoking lounge. The staff was super friendly. The rooms and bathrooms were clean. The location was alright but the usage of public transport is strongly recommended. The breakfast was good and all in all I felt I got my money's worth. I recommend this hostel and I will return there for sure.

Basically a good overall hostel but WAY overpriced (except the drinks, thank you) and I hated that the common space (the only common space) was the bar and although the music selection by the staff overall was pretty good, it would've been nice to be able to sit on a couch or a bean bag chair and just be able to relax without drunk people screaming over the loud music.

Average hostel, dorm was messy and smelly, Wifi was temperamental. It was between a 20 and 40 minute walk to the major sites of Amsterdam but there are several really good supermarkets near by and a full kitchen at the hostel. Relaxed bar area but no real chill out area for relaxing reading etc.

Hi there, Thank you very much for your feedback. We can learn a lot from your experience with us! We are sorry to hear your room was smelly and messy, we clean the rooms daily but unfortunately sharing a (big) dorm means sometimes messy roommates as well. We feel that we are pretty close to a lot of main attractions, we are 5 minutes away from most main museums, the Leidseplein bar district, the Vondelpark and many more! Again, thanks for your feedback. Cheers, The Flying Pig Uptown

Good hostel, free breaky, rooms are standard but have lockers which is great, only problem not really suited for disabled people as you have the climb the stairs in every level (much like all of amsterdam) and i was injured at the time so was not very helpful! other then that i enjoyed my stay

Could make more use of kitchen if it had better facilities for cooking like an oven that works and pans that aren't broken. It's quite dangerous to cool with broken appliances!

Hi there, Thank you very much for your feedback, we always try to learn from our guests experience. The oven was broken for one day and has now been replaced. We have also added a lot of new utensils. Thanks again for your feedback. Cheers, The Flying Pig Uptown
