Vondelpark is right across from the hostel, as well as some of the major tourist attractions. It's really expensive for what it is, but that's Amsterdam as a whole. Should look elsewhere if you want a quiet hostel.

We were very happy with our stay here. Location is perfect, very close to everything there is to see. The bar was great as well and created this lovely warm atmosphere. Got the double bed bunk bed which was great. I highly reccomend it as the place to stay in Amsterdam!

This was an amazing hostel. Very friendly and very clean. We stayed in a 8 person room and we met some pretty amazing people. Great location and great staff. The bar downstairs is very fun and you will definitely meet people in the smoking area. Great hostel if you are looking to meet people but do not want to stay in the red light district.

Amazing hostel had the best time and met amazing people the only thing I had a problem with was that there was no quiet area to just chill out but other than that it was great.

Location was good, rooms very clean and staff all very nice. I did not like how the showers flood the whole bathroom and was quite disappointed that its Amsterdam and they hostel bar doesn't serve Heineken :( Overall I would go back!

Sinceramente el peor hostel en el que he estado hasta la fecha. Escaleras y escaleras que en caso de incendio o necesidad de evacuación sería imposible y podría ser extremadamente peligroso. Ambiente deplorable. Ruido, música ensordecedora del bar, golpes de puertas, escaleras, etc. La habitación llena de botellas y latas de cerveza y demás bebidas alcohólicas, las cuales se supone no pueden consumirse en las propias habitaciones.

The flying pig is an incredible hostel. I would highly recommend it to backpackers just trying to have a great time. Had a pub crawl planned but decided to stay at there bar because it was a great time. The staff is really chill and helpful. Overall amazing time.

Best hostel i have ever stayed in. Travelled all over europe and it was the most comfortable, most relaxed and secure hostel i stayed in. Staff were not only knowledgeable about the city but they knew the tourist spots and the not so tourist spots. Great energy and willingness to help ans ensure you are cosy. The team also come and party and hang out which helps build a solid social atmosphere which is needed in a hostel. Pretty damn good kitchen too so you can cook. GREAT!!!!!

Cool spot. But i swear everyone there was sick!! Sharing joint in small quarters, and there really isn't much space to chill. A bit on the cramped side

A busy place. Suits tourists more than travellers.

I loved my stay at the Pig. Aside from the fact that Amsterdam was an easy place to begin my journey because everyone spoke English, the staff and other guests of the Pig were awesome. I felt very safe and secure, and did not worry about my belongings. The close proximity to the Leidseplein and Vondelpark was wonderful, and made it very easy to explore the city walking. Best value for the money, and I feel I underpaid. 5 stars, and i would definitely stay here again. Pig forever!!

Hi, we are sorry to hear that you feel the staff were not nice to you. Providing friendly customer service is extremely important to us as we encourage our staff to help create the positive, fun atmosphere reflected in our ratings. Also, our hostel is strictly non-smoking outside of our smoking room, a rule that is always enforced. Inside our well ventilated smoking room though guests can enjoy marijuana or cigarettes. We hope you stay with us again! - The Flying Pig Uptown

Double bed was small and fairly uncomfortable but overall dorm room was clean and sufficient with ensuite bathroom. Loved the location right by the park, and having breakfast provided was a plus.
