Awesome place to stay! The atmosphere is great and everyone was super friendly. There's a bar in the basement with a good cheap variety and a large smoking room close by. Less than a 5 min walk to the metro and about a 15 minute walk to dam square.
Enjoyed our stay. Be ready to climb some serious stairs and walk a solid 20-25 minute to central station.
Tiny room & bathroom, but I didn't find it a bother since I was out all day anyway. Convenient power outlet and shelf next to bed. Smoking area for those looking to fully indulge in Amsterdam lifestyle. Great staff, very helpful with where to go and what to see. Staff checked at least twice a day to see if everything was clean enough. Overall great stay!
Really nice environment and in a good location for the price. Staff friendly. Only negatives were that the shower temperature couldn't be turned down.

Comfy beds, clean bathrooms, and awesome hang out bar/smoking area! Great vibes to take advantage of but also walking distance to everything you want to see in Amsterdam!
Super cramped rooms with little ventilation. Great breakfast. Really good location - within walking distance to almost every major site.
So far,this is the best "party"hostel and one of the best I have eva been. everybody was very nice with me, I felt kind of at homeINaPUB(THEbarIZELF is fun and interesting for all the people u can meet and the atmosphere). however I did not give the maximum in security because once I did some mistake with the locker:eventuallyI found all the things out, instead of the machine asking me to put more coins...they clean very well,toilets pretty fresh, but I am alergic to dust and the upper floor:(:)
Uptown pig was a amazing experience while staying in Amsterdam! The place its not spotless but the environment its really cool! Dispite the fact of to get on the rooms, you have only stairs ( A LOT) thats fine, because the place its really cool!! Really hispter, cool songs, well, its amsterdam!! REALLY GOOD breakfast! a lot of toilets, its tiny but its fine! JUST LITERALLY OUTSIDE OF VONDELPARK!! One thing, I was in a 10 bed mixed room for 4 nights, and I was the only girl on the entire time!
The staff and hostel were excellent. I'm writing on my phone so I'm going to keep it short but everything about my stay here was wonderful. Every employee we came across was helpful and friendly. Highly recommended.
The Flying Pig Hostels are some of my favorite hostels Ive ever stayed at (4th time). Love the vibes and its always a great place to meet cool and fun people. Personally I like the Downtown hostel better as the location is better in my opinion. It takes a while to walk to and from the uptown hostel but it is right next to the Vondelpark and Rijksmuseum. Only negative was that I'm allergic to cats and they had a cat roaming around downstairs but other than that it was a great experience as usual.
Wonderful experience for our first time at a hostel! The staff was helpful with our questions about the city and made excellent recommendations! Very close to the tram which made it easy to get around!

Coolest hostel ever. Wasn't the cleanest but for the money that we paid it was the cheapest ($13) and the best value for Amsterdam. Bathrooms could have been cleaner but all you had to do was tell the staff and it was cleaned instantly. They have queen beds available for pairs traveling together so make sure you specify what bed type you want-- but it's super cheap if you do the queen. Don't worry you won't be paired with a rando, you need two to reserve a queen.
מקום מומלץ לכל מי שמחפש את חווית אמסטרדם המושלמת, הוסטל זול שכולל ארוחת בוקר שווה, קלאסי לחברה צעירים שמטיילים או מי שמטייל לבד ( כמוני) מקום נהדר להכיר אנשים, הכל נקי וצוות מדהים שעוזר בהכללל אפילו איפה אפשר לקנות את הבראוניז הכי טוב! ( בקופישופ ׳הדולפין׳;) וכמובן- חדר עישון בתוך ההוסטל פתוח 24 שעות, אחלה מוזיקה והמיקום במרכז של המרכז. הגעתי למקום בהפתעה , הייתי שם 4 ימים ונהנתי מכל רגע!! מומלץ בחום

top-hostel, perfect location near museums, great staff, enough facilities for shower/toilet, and a nice bar with good music to chill out.
It's a nice hostel with free breakfast. Not outstanding but alright. Location is great!
it was a really nice stay, its by far one the best ones ive ever stayed, really clean, location was good, excellent personal really friendly and helpfull
Great. There is a bar and a smoking room. We could use lockers to leave baggages even after checking out. Friendly and helpful staff, great atmosphere. One negative: the room was quite stuffy in the morning and the windows couldn't be opened.
This hostel was fine. Nothing special. Too crowded in fact. Not a cool place to sit and chill and meet peopl. I remember I sat down with one girl and she promptly said "sorry this seat's taken..." The staff was pretty cool. The one dude i chilled with was nice. The bathrooms were disgusting. The beds and the rooms were comfy. GREAT LOCATION.
Fantastic social layout and good vibes here as well all the facilities an cleanliness you would hope to find in a hostel - full marks all round. Note it is about a 10min walk to the centre of Amsterdam but it's interesting all the way and not an isssue at all.
Yo man the flying pig is like pretty chill man. Tons of dope people and dope dope dude. If you're like in amsterdam(yea amsterdam brah!) and you're like a mellow dude with good vibes the flying pig is like your place G. I mean dude it's right by the Van Gogh museum, you know the dude with the trippy artwork bro! It's like not far from the Anne Frank house which is like in all seriousness a staunch reminder of the horrors of fascism man, like my dad dude he's such a fascist! Peace out dawg!
