There was only one toilet and sink on our floor, the space was also very small. This made it challenging to even change in the bathroom or brush your teeth without being interrupted many times. The single shower space was also very small. If you are visiting to party this may be the hostel for you. It was loud (the music in the bat downstairs), you could hear everyone using the stairs and because of the smoking room inside, our room smelled strongly of different kinds of smoke.

Hi There, Thanks for your review, we can learn a lot from your time here. On the floor you stayed, there are less public toilets and showers as most rooms are ensuite, other floors do have more communal showers and toilets as they have less ensuite rooms. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused by this. We have also emailed you personally about your time with us. Thanks again for your feedback, we appreciate you taking the time. Safe travels, The Flying Pig Uptown

the staff and atmosphere was great and the breakfast was yummy. just those damn stairs that got me every time. and our room was really stuffy because we couldn't open the windows , so getting that sorted would be great

Hey There! Thanks for taking the time to give us feedback. It is great to see that overall you enjoyed your time here with us. The room you stayed, it is possible to open the windows, but they can be a little difficult as they are quite large. We have asked the maintenance guys to have a look if there is a way to make it easier to open, thanks for bringing it to our attentions and we are sorry for the inconvenience this caused. Thanks again for your time, The Flying Pig

Nice hostel & in a good location - not central but lots of restaurants & bars etc nearby. The bed was comfy, and the showers were clean and good. The hostel was full when we were there, so the bar area was always too busy to sit after a long day tramping the streets of Amsterdam or when trying to get breakfast - nice-looking but small - all the staff were very friendly and helpful... Noise not a problem at all in this hostel, maybe because our room was right at the top of the building.

Hello :) Thank you for reviewing your stay with us, we appreciate it. It's lovely to see that overall you enjoyed your time with us. We are currently looking to extend our basement level, which could create some more bar space. We are glad that our busy bar area did not affect your time with us too much! We do hope you will stay with us again in the future, Thanks again, The Flying Pig Uptown

Great hostel, great location, lovely staff all round, and all he facilities you need to enjoy yourself in Amsterdam without breaking the bank (inc. a decent free breaky). I did the Amsterdam thing and lost my soul a little, and the guys and girls at this hostel did everything they could to help. I've now stayed at both the Uptown and Downtown flying pigs (this year and last year) and they're both really worth your time. Have fun 😊

Hi , I was there two weeks ago. I work for the same company for hostels and they didn't me the discount as like an employee, even so up three times by asking the receptionist if I had it done and she said yes , when it was not true.

Excellent hostel in a great location - right beside Vondel park, less than 5 minutes walk to the Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum and only about a 15 minute walk to the city centre. The staff were really helpful, friendly and chilled out. They use Whatsapp so you can get help without having to even leave your room, e.g. to change air con...great idea! Security was great and they have a very good and secure digital left luggage system. Breakfast was perfect, everything spotless! Thank you!

It was my first time at Amsterdam and first time at a hostel. Enjoyed every bit of my stay here. The staff was always helpful and from what I have heard from other travellers, this hostel is the cleanest of them all. Since it is right behind Vondelpark, you can always get a few beers and enjoy it under a tree at the park! The crowd was very diverse and I met many solo travellers like me every single day! The breakfast is filling and perfect to kick start your day. Stay at the Flying Pig only.

The Flying Pig Uptown was a fun and lively hostel where you can meet a lot of new people. It also was in a great location... Just a few minutes walk from major museums, Vondelpark, and most tourist attractions. The staff is very friendly and the facilities are good value for your money!

Good place for solo travelers to meet others. Decent locker system & a very clean. They'll charge you for lockers on check out. About standard price for any decent hostel in this (expensive) city.

Really really good hostel. Clean and comfortable with very helpful friendly staff. Location is good. Not in the centre of the city but close to the museums, bars and clubs (and along with all of Amsterdam there are really good tram links to everywhere). The bar is open late. Lots of showers. I stayed in the 12 bed dorm and I can't fault them.
