I love this hostel. I've spent a lot of time there and always end up getting to know so many interesting people since the atmosphere around the hostel is so open. The staff is great, very helpful and nice. Breakfast is nothing special, but it's alright and it's free.


Great stay here. Staff gave me a warm welcome. Super easy to get to. You just take the number 5 tram from central station for 15 minutes. Rooms were clean and comfy. Breakfast was free and quite yummy. Half a minute walk to the famous and beautiful vondel park which I enjoyed getting lost in very much.


Cool place with lots of atmosphere. A little bit out from the main part of the city but found that kind of refreshing, still plenty of bars and things to see around this side of town. The smoking room is very convenient and the bar always has drink specials running as well as food! The only bad thing would have to be the steep stairs, you will definitely get a leg work out here!


Good breakfast, smoking room, nice staff, clean, many stairs. Expensive but A'dam is expensive, would stay again.


You will definitely have a great time here! The bar is a great place to hang out. The staff is super friendly.


Special and very nice Hostel in Amsterdam.

Hey, thanks for your feedback. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again! Cheers, The Flying Pig Uptown.


For someone traveling alone this hostel was horrible. I was disappointed because online it said this was a party hostel, yet the hostel did nothing to unite people like other better hostels I've been to have. Should organize events during the day/night so that people can meet each other. It was the only hostel in over 30 I've been to where I didn't meet one person, and I'm extremely outgoing and friendly. Left me VERY disappointed :(


great people but i wish there were more showers and bathrooms. good location and the staff was super helpful.


Good hostel! Really clean!


Second time I've stayed here. Really great staff and location. I'm over 40 but they still let me stay ;)


This hostel it`s really good to go with friends or alone. The location it`s perfect. In front of the Von Del Park.


Overall not impressed considering its supposed to be a "world famous hostel". Not a good place to stay if you are traveling alone, hard to meet people. Just an average hostel.


Was a good location and not too close tithe red light district, but near enough to pubs and cafe's. staff were friendly and tried to help with everything. Would stay here again!!

The wi-fi connection is too slow and the bar prices are too expensive. You need to spend much money if you wanna get drunk. By the way there was just a few information about party in clubs

It was a great experience I just had a problem with the floor i was in. It was the last floor and first it was hard to take all the luggage but then the showers only had hot water so i had to shower downstairs every day

Great Atmosphere in the Hostel, good breakfast and very clean bathrooms. The best thing of the Hostel is the Bar and the smoke room.


The staff here were absolutely exceptional and this really made my stay 10/10. Location was also perfect, the bar was cool and we even got wifi from our bunk beds which was a bonus as most hostels these days have really dodgey wifi in the rooms. Best hostel in Europe by far. My only suggestion would be for them to get bigger lockers but other than that everything was sweet!


Needs air conditioning. ...small fan on floor for whole room just doesn't cut it.
