Cool hostel right next to Vondelpark. If you want to be where more of the action is I recommend the downtown Flying Pig instead.

Was expensive to stay here in a dorm although Amsterdam is generally an expensive city. It had a smoking room which was good but if you're looking for a chilled out stay and place to smoke some green then this isn't the place. Just a party hostel for drinkers, doesn't really cater to the other half. Almost always har to line up for toilets and showers

The hostel was pretty good but it was too small for the amount of guests staying there. There was one toilet for our whole floor so i was always waiting to use the washroom. The downstairs is too crowded at breakfast. The staff were awesome and always willing to help, but i would probably stay somewhere downtown next time.

Hi there, Thank you very much for your feedback. We can learn a lot from your experience with us! Most of the rooms have their own bathroom and there are a lot more toilets on every floor available to use. Yes, it can be busy downstairs during breakfast. We do serve breakfast between 7.30 and 11.00, there is 3,5 hours so everyone should have enough time to sit down and enjoy their free breakfast, we hope you got the chance to grab some! Thanks again! Safe travels, The Flying Pig Uptown

With the exception of location (being a 35 minute walk from central station), this was a great place to stay. Best atmosphere to date on this trip, staff is friendly and willing to help you find your way around town. Walking tour met in lobby. Free breakfast, free wifi, all in all no complaints. I'd recommend a flying pig hostel to anyone staying in Amsterdam.

Great kitchen and dining area/bar. Really fun atmosphere and the free breakfast is great! Large rooms and plenty of showers. Lots of young people and other backpackers.

Hostel was amazing. Some of the bathroom facilities could have been cleaner.

This hostel was unreal, met a ton of awesome people, good breakfast, comfortable beds. A little far from downtown but the pros far outweigh the cons. Loved my stay at the Flying Pig!

Very good hostel- nice staff and a great location.

Very fun hostel, the downstairs bar and smoking room have a fantastic atmosphere conducive of meeting new people, a great place if you want to smoke weed as well, and being right across the road from Vondelpark is perfect on summer's days. I wouldn't stay here if you want peace and quiet and don't like stairs or busabout clients (essentially young Aussies) but for us it was brilliant!

Good location next to the Vondelpark with a good bar and very diverse group of people staying. The staff were very helpful in any queries we had The only downside was the lack of available plugs for charging our phone

Awesome stuff & Location! Great bar and Smoking room. Nice breakfast included. Clean Sheets and toilettes. Kitchen was great. Only Problem was to go to the 4th floor with my backpack but I think is a General stuff with dutch buildings. Would recommend this hostel for sure!

Hi there, Thank you very much for your great feedback! We are very happy to read you had such a great time with us. The stairs are part of the Dutch architecture but the 4th floor gives you a nice view over Amsterdam though. Hope to see you again! Cheers, The Flying Pig Uptown

Great location but the whole college kid atmosphere really wasn't my scene, but can't expect much else staying at a hostel in Amsterdam!

Great Hostel! Excellent for meeting people. Staff is super friendly and want you to love the city as much as they do so they really try to help you see and enjoy the city! Free breakfast in the morning was a real benefit. Cages available under the beds for security (bring your own lock). The location is a little further than the red light district but totally walkable (or just take an easy tram) and it is right next to the main park which is amazing to sit in on a beautiful day :)

This hostel was right next to Vondelpark, which is a giant park perfect to relax in or bike around. I loved the location of the hostel because it was away from the craziness of downtown Amsterdam. The rooms were extremely clean along with the bathrooms. The showers had lots of hot water also. I would highly recommend staying at this hostel if you want a relaxing weekend in Amsterdam. If you are looking to go out and party stay at the Downtown location!

A great hostel for your stay in Amsterdam. Smoker friendly. It's out of the way of the major tourists areas, while still making them accessible. Staff is friendly and helpful. Hostel environment is quiet and relaxed.

Everyone seemed very friendly and helpful which was great. My bed was one of the only ones in the room which didn't have a locker underneath the bed for my bag which sucked, but otherwise all was good.

i there, Thank you very much for your feedback. We can learn a lot from your experience with us! The double bed you booked has 2 wooden lockers next to the bed instead, I'm sorry if you preferred the other ones, I hope it didn't spoil your stay with us too much. Thanks again! Safe travels!
