What can I say. At all of the flying pig hostels you run into one main problem, the staff. They are constantly hanging around off shift and totally killing that travelers vibe. Definitely more staff than travelers hanging around and because its the Netherlands they are usually half asleep in the smoke rooms taking up all the good space for people who have paid to be there and possibly smoked a little too much to give any decent advice on their locations. Shout out to Steve however at uptown.
This was a nice hostel, next to the park which is good when it's sunny. Rooms were fine and breakfast was good. I liked that there was a smoking room. It seemed like a good hostel to meet people if you are travelling alone. The toilets were a bit small and cramped. There was a kitchen and also a small outside area I think.
Very loud at night but it is well known as a party hostel, location was really good, beds comfy and an excellent breakfast.
Hostel de feu en face du parc et près d'une épicerie. Le Staff est sympathique et toujours disponible. L'ambiance est géniale, j'y retournerais n'importe quand.
Bon emplacement, propre, sympa. Un peu cher mais il semble que ce soit le lot d'Amsterdam. Juste à côté des musées.

Enjoyed my stay here, no real issues. Bar was a bit overpriced.
A party hostel only a bar and smoking room no chill out communal area. Mixed 4 bed dorm was VERY tiny and shower was almost over toilet. Helpful staff, good drink specials and variety included for breakfast. A little bit of a walk from main sites. Would reccomened to younger ages group looking to party.
Dorm rooms could use more bathrooms. The smoke room is kind of a blackhole where once you enter, you may not leave for several hours. But, when in Amsterdam...
Buen hostel, buena atención, buen desayuno, (poco espacio para desayunar y el baño). Pero es recomendable según precio y calidad.
Best hostel ever. Very clean and the staff was just amazing. For sure we will be back.
We had a blast ! Great personnel , very clean and safe! great free breakfast! just 1 minute walking to Leidseplein. To Thierry, part of the hostel personnel, if u read this : thank u so much for ur kindness! We didn't get the chance to say goodbye! Take care and hopefully see u soon for another trip to Amsterdam. From the salvadorean girls, staying at the mushroom room!

Tout très bien ! On a passé de super vacances !
Flying Pig Uptown was in a great location and everything in the city is within walking distance. The vibe of the hostel is super cool and the bar and smoking room are great places to meet people and hang out. The staff was extremely helpful and cool to chit chat with. Perfect for solo travelers or groups.
Great first experience at a hostel! Excellent environment for meeting other travellers!
Don't carry a suitcase! Remember you'll be in this ancient Dutch building with steep stair case all the way up to the fifth floor. Besides that everything was neat and nice. Cat lovers, meet Luna the beautiful cat who lives around.
I loved this hostel! I will definitely stay there again if I go to Amsterdam again.
Tasty breakfast, but unfortunately it was a bit crowdy around 10 am. Lockers outside the rooms make it easy to explore the city without luggage even after check-out.
Ostello buono a chi vuole fare festa. Ci sono delle scale inevitabili, sono stata al 4o. Piano. Non mi è piaciuta la atmosfera dovuta alo smoking room. Però buona struttura e colazione.
Best place I've stayed. Would recommend to anyone. Everyone's so involving. But it's a party kinda place. So don't book it and whinge u want to do nothing
I stayed at FP Uptown for just one night, just after Kingsday. The staff did a brilliant job cleaning up the rooms and bathrooms very quickly. It was great I was able to check in and leave my bags in my room in the morning instead of waiting until the afternoon. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and it was a brilliant place to stay.
