nice hostel,

Great location, from there you can go to many touristic places by walking. The breakfast is good. The room size and toilets are also good enough. I would definitely stay there again.

Thank you very much for your review! We are happy that you enjoyed your stay so much, despite the fact you weren't in the same room. The reason for that was that you booked Queensized beds. we only have 4 spots in Queensized beds per dorm. If you decide to stay with us again with such a group please book 8 beds in our 8p dorm, or four 8p single dorm beds and two 8p double dorm beds! We understand if this is confusing. Feel free to call or e-mail for assistance! - The Flying Pig Uptown

Great bed, but not very practical or secure because of the steel crate that works as a locker to put your stuff. You can only open it when it's completely out, but there isn't enough space for that, and even locked the holes of the crate make it possible to take things out of it without opening. Nice atmosphere, but it seems that they cannot manage to have so many guests, breakfast and reception are often too crowded. Nice common and smoking room though.

I was quite nervous arriving as I was travelling alone but the staff immediately made me feel at ease and welcome. I had a fantastic time. I was never in need of anything. The staff were fantastic, so friendly and energetic they really made my stay here extremely enjoyable. The rooms were lovely and clean, with fresh beds made when anyone arrived. Breakfast was well organised. I would recommend this is anyone travelling to Amsterdam. I couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable experience.

Spent three nights there. Pretty good location short tram ride / 10-15 minutes walk from central station and dam square. Has a nice bar at at the entrance floor and a smoking room. Both staff and guests were really friendly and helpful. Recommended for people who are looking for a young and cheerful atmosphere

One of the most inviting hostels we've stayed in! We've already recommended it to friends. One thing to note, however: there is no "quiet room", or games room, so if you're looking for a quiet place to relax, it'll have to be your room, or somewhere else. That being said, the bar has got great energy.

I had already been to flying pig uptown and i came back as it has very good atmopshere and you get the best quality for what you're paying. BUT, this time i had a problem: the room where me and a friend of mine was busy. it was a 12 people room but we were 13 inside it. When i was checking in they told me: "so you reserved a king size bed in the 12 people room". I didn't. But actually it didn't existed at all a king size bed in the 12 people room!

Thank you for your review! We are happy you came back! We have a strict "1 person per bed policy" (except for our Queensized beds; they have 2 people), so there should not have been 13 people in the room! We checked your booking and you did book a Queensized bed in a 12 person dorm. There are 2 of these beds in every 12 person dorm. Next time you stay with us make sure you book single beds, or ask one of our staff to show you your bed. We hope you decide to stay again! - The Flying Pig Uptown

Very well located in Amsterdam, close to everything (opposite the Vondelpark and a few minutes of Leidsenplein). The bar is great, good beers and great music!

Your typical way-too-packed chain hostel. Rooms are cramped and overpriced. Great for vacationers and springbreakers. Not so great for backpackers or solo travelers. Staff was awesome.

One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. There was awesome bar and smoking room, good bed, clean showers etc. Also the staff were really helpful - we mannaged to lost our key from lockers, key from room and lock our suitcase in wrong locker in three days of our stay - and still get nice response and help :D Flying pig is probably only hostel where you really look forward to coming back in the evening , the atmosphere is just great :)

Overall my stay at Uptown was great. I originally booked for two nights but my flight got cancelled so I was only able to stay for one night. I let them know as soon as I knew my flight was cancelled and that I would not be there but they still made me pay for that night. That is the only negative though. The place was clean and all of the staff were extremely friendly! The atmosphere was great too! It's a good place to meet people and socialize.

Thank you very much for your review! We are really glad to read you had a good stay overall! We understand that you are disappointed about the fact that you still had to pay for your first night. Unfortunately we can not take responsibility for the fact that a third company cancels a flight, and we have a 24h cancellation policy. We hope you understand. Thanks again, We hope you decide to stay with us again! - The Flying Pig Uptown

I really enjoyed my stay here. We were so close to everything and there was a beautiful park just right across the road from the hostel. The breakfast was really good and the staff were so friendly. The shower room was a little small but other than that this place will definitely be where I stay the next time im in Amsterdam.
