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.

Thanks a lot for your review! We look forward to welcoming you again! Next time ask for quicker directions to Leidseplein, it should only take 5-10 minutes :) - The Flying Pig Uptown

As always this hostel is amazing... Great staff, great breakfast, good kitchen facilities, a smoking room... My only complaint is the showers can be temperamental when it comes to temperature and there could be a night light in the bedroom (or individual lights) to avoid crashes with furniture in the middle of the night... I always recommend this hostel to people visiting Amsterdam :)

Great atmosphere, good vibes, smoking room, breakfast is good, staff are nice, bathrooms are a bit small and not all beds have lights but that wasn´t really a problem.

Overall everything was good. Breakfast was very nice! Two things I didn't like: kitchen was really small and wifi only worked in the bar (there was no other common area) which is noisy of course..And another thing, it's cheaper if you book online!

Thank you for your review! We are glad you enjoyed most of it! We are in the process of improving our Wi-Fi, so when you decide to stay with us again in the future that should hopefully not be an issue anymore! - The Flying Pig Uptown

Never been at a hostel with a pillow fight!! So much fun, and great atmosphere overall, and those mini pizzas were great munchie food! The stairs did get annoying after a while, but I guess that's part of the experience :D

Thank you very much for your review! That night with the pillow fight was hilarious! See the stairs as a bit of exercise we didn't even charge you for! :) We hope to see you again next time you decide to travel to Amsterdam! - The Flying Pig Uptown

The place is very fun, first and foremost. It has that couped-up snug feeling, the whole atmosphere is very nice and really Amsterdam-ish. The common room and smoking room are comfortable enough, although a bit small. The staff and reception were very nice, cheery and helpful, the rooms were spacious enough, clean enough, and the sleeping was comfortable. The toilets and showers are a bit small and tight, but nevertheless very clean. The whole hostel is a small experience. No lift though.

Thank you for your review! We are glad to hear you enjoyed almost everything! We are situated in a classic Amsterdam like building, so there are indeed some stairs and not a whole lot of space. We hope you also found that cozy though, we feel it adds to the atmosphere - The Flying Pig Uptown

I've stayed at uptown multiple times and it has been awesome everytime, the staff are amazing, the hostel is always kept very clean and it's a very good atmostphere. I've stayed there by myself and also with mates, both times had a brilliant stay. Close to everything and easy to find, i would always recommend this hostel to anyone, even non weed smokers.

One of my favorite hostels. Beautiful location on Vondelpark, great atmosphere with the bar and smoking room. Staff are friendly and helpful. Internet can be a bit spotty upstairs and bathrooms are a bit small but no big issues.

Loved this hostel, it's one of my favorite hostels that I've ever been to. Its in a prime location, great atmosphere, and the staff is awesome. The wifi can be a little iffy but if you go up to the first floor it works great. I'm definitely going back!

It wasn't really comfortable as spaces (rooms and toilets) were small. It suits well for people on their 18 to 25 years old. Location is good for tourists and the breakfast is great.

Hi, thank you for your comments. Due to our traditional Dutch architecture the building is tall with smaller floor space meaning we are unable to have excessively large toilets. We hope you visit us again. Cheers - The Flying Pig Uptown

Wifi was brutal. Staff was chill, always associating/hanging out with guests. Stairs most definitely suck and was feeling them after 3 days. A bit far from "downtown" but easily walkable. The vibe was really awesome overall, comfy place to burn and relax after exploring

Hi, thank you for your review. We are currently working on improving our wifi and hope it did not damage your experience with us. Come and stay again soon! Cheers - The Flying Pig Uptown
