I like the location, right next to Vondelpark and a little removed from the histle and bustle, while still within walking distance to any and everything. The atmosphere is great- the bar is a very relaxed place and it's easy to meet people from all over. Beds are also very comfortable.
Great stay, nothing special. I don't understand the wow associated with this place. It is just your run of the mill youth hostel
Good hostel with good atmosphere. Bar and smoking room really help to get everyone together. Rooms are very small for the number of beds however this was really only and issue in the morning when everyone was getting up. Definitely one of the better hostels in Amsterdam (I have been to 6 here alone).
Good place to stay. Nice staff. Smoking room always welcome as you always end up with too many extra bits from having to buy at each coffeeshop you enter (usually). Smoking room was a bit small but I don't suppose you can do much about that. We have previously stayed at the Downtown one and that was better with more space in the communal areas, but obviously in the hectic centre. Uptown is cool too, and worth the money. It's nice to be out of the very center of town sometimes too.
Had an amazing time, would recommend it to any young person looking to have fun and make friends!
Comfortable beds and very helpful staff. Breakfast was good but the atmosphere in the bar and smoking room lacked. The location could have been more central too
Loved it. The smoking room at the hostel was my favourite place in the whole city. People was extra nice. Staff was so cool I even went out with some of them and some other customers. Rooms were nice and clean. Bathrooms and showers were good and clean too. There's a nice kitchen and it's in a great location (even if the other Flying Pig in nearer the center of the city. They have a great bar, with good promos (4 euro 2 bottles of beer), and a very good breakfast. Highly recommended!!!
Excellente auberge de jeunesse ! Bonne ambiance, bière pas chère et le petit déjeuner est très satisfaisant ! Je vous conseille vivement cette auberge !
Best party hostel I've been! The atmosphere is amazing, the price is good for the facilities. Great smoking room and bar. The kitchen is good but they could let it open 24 hours, Amsterdam demands it (if you know what I mean). In front of vondelpark, close to the night clubs, but far from red light and downtown.
A good hostel! Clean, nice staff, good breakfast.. nice atmosphere. Not really a place to socialize but the bar is open 24 hours, which is a plus if you need to eat or drink in late hours. Guess the only problem would be the staircase...really steep and straight to carry your luggage, if you don't have a backpack just be prepared for a little extra struggle. Otherwise great hostel!
Nice rooms and clean bathrooms at the Flying Pig Uptown; loved the containers under the bed for storage. The bar in the hostel is great too, but they should serve better food!
Better, detailed citymap (which indludes the street Name, public Transport Network and Name of stations) at reception desk would be very helpful. Further you could update at your Website how to get from Airport to the hostel by public Transport GVB (from airport by bus line 69 to the station Laan van Vlaanderen and there Change for tram line 2) because for bus line 197 you should pay additionaly.
Great place! Would definitely come back

The staff were really friendly and welcoming, although very busy. The bar downstairs made for a good social environment however drinks were relatively expensive still. Relaxed and enjoyable place. Would definently stay there again and recommend it to others.
Amazing staff. Serving noodles in the middle of the night after the hostel bar had already closed was a highlight in good service!
The bar is the most important part of the hostel. And its vy convenient to have a hairdryer on every floor!nice staff as well!
Lacks a place to hang out that's not the smoking room or the bar. Other than that it's a very nice hostel.
Really solid hostel. Helpful staff, clean place, cool place to hang.
