The "express checkout" is a bit annoying. The wifi is very poor. Anyway the stuff is super nice, the breakfast is ok, and they make attention on the security. So good value for the money.

The breakfast at this hostel was absolutely amazing! It was also nice having a common room area where you could chat and meet tons of other travelers. The music was a little loud and the showers were not as convenient, but overall, really nice place!

One of the best hostels I have stayed in! Everything was perfect. It's at a walking distance from Leidesplein place and is located in a very quiet quarter. They have big lockers where you can store your stuff by paying a couple of euros. The rooms also have under-bed lockers. The toilets are super clean, equipped with disinfectants and all. The breakfast is amazing and the staff is really cool. The bar downstairs is a great place to hang out if you don't feel like going out. Really exceptional!

Loved the place! thought it was cool how it was in a quieter part of Amsterdam but close enough to walk or take the tram. the staff was good, the smoking room and the common areas were cool and the breakfast was great as well!

The flying pig is a great hostel in Amsterdam. Every major attraction is within easy walking distance especially the Van Gogh museum and Anne Frank Museum. The staff are very friendly and out going and the downstairs bar and restaurant always has someone in it to hangout with and chat. Great place to stay.

The Flying Pig is the place to be. Individual lockers are provided, great breakfast (Nutella!), friendly staff, great showers... No complaints. The wifi is a bit weak but that shouldn't make or break your decision. Definitely a party atmosphere.

Building isn't very new, but it didn't smell or anything and they did a great job cleaning it. Would stay here again.

The Flying Pig Uptown was very welcoming, very clean and very surprising. Having never stayed in a hostel before I wasn't sure what to expect but was amazed at the facilities available for the price. I would definitely recommend them and not hesitate to stay there again.

The Flying Pig its a great place to party and great in many aspects, but the spaces and access inside the hostel are not the best: The bar is cool, but it^s really small for the capacity of the place and since its has a shot period for breakfast it is impossible to find a place without bothering someone else. It also have really small stairs where you^ll find really hard with you backpack and IMPOSSIBLE with a suitcase.
