Great hostel! It has all a backpacker needs. Good atmosphere at the bar and good staff. The location is also good since it's close to many atractions in the city.
A bit far from the central area but really nice staff! They give you all the help to see the city and the main points! Breakfast could be better but was ok. Is a good hostel to stay, not the best one but is a good one
Loved my stay at the flying pig. The only down fall I'd say is the location, being a little out of the way of everything, but is next to a very nice and big park so that was nice. The bar has good prices on beer, and cheap pizza. Felt very at home the whole time with the staff being so great.
A really really great hostel!! The staff, in particular, was amazing--so friendly and helpful. The hostel basically has everything you could want, and it's a pretty great value. My only complaint is about the bathrooms--the ones with the toilets in them are TINY--it's difficult to use the sinks without accidentally spraying water everywhere (which meant that the floors were frequently wet when I went to use them, which is kinda gross). One sink should be fixed, it's difficult to turn off.
The staff is very kind and helpful and the hostel has a great environment, really good to meet new people. The kitchen might be a bit small but it has all the needed equipment.
Amazing hostel! i would definitely go back whenever i visit Amsterdam! The best thing was the fastest Wifi as well as the luggage locker for early check in-ers and outers ;) Also, breakfast was amazing! There's nothing to complain or say anything about this hostel! Perfect!!!
Great staff, super nice and helpful.

Cosy hostel that was hard to leave from. All the staff are friendly and are willing to help with anything you need help with. Bar downstairs that has characters drinking/smoking every night. My stay was as good as it gets and will be back in the near future for sure! Thanks for the great time!
This Hostel was by far the best we have experienced in a big city! Everything we wanted from it was far exceeded. The common room/ bar is somewhere where you want to spend time compared to most hostels. The staff are great and bend over backwards to help and provided great tips such as for where to go. Sure it's a 30 minute walk from the red light district but in my opinion this area has a superior and more genuine selection. Ps there is a ripper €5 Italian joint El Pino 5 minutes away.
A great hostel- everyone is super nice and it has a good vibe.
this hostel was amazing and i met some great people here! the location is really close to several museums, coffee shops, public transit and much more! I was worried about having to share a shower with so many other people (not ensuite), but the showers were surprisingly always clean! I will definitely stay here again next time I'm in Amsterdam!
Would come here again. Very clean. But, there was an odd odor coming from the bathroom in my dorm. Staff never fixed it, though I reported it the first day. All else was great.
There was staff coming in and out of the room throughout the day, even as early as 8am, which was disturbing and annoying. They were very inconsiderate slamming doors, cleaning the bathroom and vacuuming. This was one of the biggest problems that I had while staying at this place. The staff is very friendly and nice.
Everyone was very friendly! The hostel was very clean and the environment was welcoming. Would recommend this hoestel to others

I honestly could not think of a single way to make my experience there better. The staff was amazing and everyone was so chill. I felt like it was a place I could be at home for a couple of days.
An excellent hostel. The staff was courteous and always ready to chat. Niall is the man! Facilities were top notch although the stairs could get tiring for some travelers. The bar doubles as reception but was never overwhelming. The smoking room is a cool addition and a good place to meet people. Location is just a short walk to town and the park next door is a great place to jog. If you're in Amsterdam, give Uptown Flying Pig a shot. It has a ton of character and you'll have a great time.
Stay was alrighty, but nothing special. Good things were the kitchen and the easy bike storage over the road, as well as the knowledge of the staff about the city and the area. There were a few things that could be improved like the size of the toilets, more racks or shelves in the shower, better under bed lockers (mine didn't lock properly and had to Macgyver something) and also the wifi is very very patchy throughout the building.
Everything is awesome. Totaly recommended, the staff is awesome
I had an amazing experience and will definitely be returning! Awesome staff, awesome hostel!!
Really really great (and attractive) staff, comfortable room, good location
