Good hostel! Close to the museums and walking distance from most important places to know in Amsterdam! Nice and helpfull staff.
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.
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
Awesome hostel, it's a very nice place to chill out at any time.
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.
we had a great stay at the hostel. the guy at the reception was extremely friendly and kind with us. the smoking room is an excellent facilitie, it really made our life easier. great location, near from the park, which is great too. definitely recomended.
The staff at check in was extremely friendly and helpful
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!
Good location, the rooms and facilities are clean. Negative points: the lockers in the room are not very safe and you need a very big padlock so not super easy and the table for eating the breakfast are super limited, there is not enough space for everyone...

I really like this hostel. I have been there twice and it has been always a good experience. The staff is really great and the reception is 24h, which is very important for me. The place is clean and really close to the Museumplein and to Ledseplein. If I go back to Amsterdam again, I will definitely stay at this hostel one more time.
very nice hostel and nice people, thanks all staff !!!
Very nice stay iin the Flying Pig Uptown. If I ever come back to Amsterdam I will surely book with you, and I of course I will recommend you to my friends.
Great hostel. Lockers in rooms to keep things safe, bar down stairs and in a quiet location within walking distance to everything! Very clean toilets and showers and a good happy hour in the bar
This is a beautiful Hostel, clean and cozy. I loved the free breakfast in the mornings. It was pretty conveniently located, and the staff helped us out heaps with a good Car park recommendation. My partner and I felt a lack of bonding with other Hostelmates and staff, I don't blame this on the hostel necessarily. It could have been due to us being a little to reserved, or possibly because it is off season and bit more calm and quiet. The queen beds were perfect for my partner and I to share.
Very accomodating and always tried to help. Would happily stay here again!
Highly recommended for overseas travellers
Had a looooovely stay at this hostel, the atmosphere was awesome and the place is filled with great people! Both staff sand guests. Location is great, about 15 minutes walk to Leidseplein. And you feel like you're in a very safe area. Wish I could've stayed longer, I'll definitely be staying here again the next time I visit Amsterdam. Note: best suited for young people and/or backpackers who don't mind other young people and/or backpackers.
