If you're looking for a smoking and party hostel: Flying Pig is the right place!
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.
My Stay In The Flying Pig Uptown Was Amazing . The Staff Are All Lovly And Very Helpful , The Hostel Itself Is A Great Spot For Young Travellers To Stay Would 100% Recommend Staying Here !

A little expensive and there are a lot of beds per room, but this place is totally worth it. Ridiculously chill.
A boiled egg makes all the difference :-)
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

Friendly staff and good vibe, would return there
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
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!
Great location, great breakfast, very helpful staff! The room is a little cramped but that's normal for Amsterdam. Would certainly return!
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!
Cool staff, great hostel to base yourself at. It has everything you'll need and it's very comfortable
The staff is so friendly and helpful that they are definitevely one of the mayor highlights of the hostel. Keep it up guys!
Can't fault this place great smokeroom very clean hostel staff were great I've stayed in all the flying pigs now and all are great but uptown was the best of the 3 I've stayed in
