Had an awesome stay here. Staff were helpful, room is clean and comfortable. Will recommend!

GREAT HOSTEL. Despite being above a bar, the rooms are actually very quiet so you can get some shut eye when you call it a night. The bathrooms were very clean. Breakfast had a lot of variety, multiple cereals, breads, jams, nutella, fruits, and hard boiled eggs. Also, they have a water tap where you can get water at any point - which was much needed! Each bed had an individual light and outlet, and AMAZING pillows. This is one of the best hostels in my experience!

Very close to the major museums of the city! Common areas were a bit cramped though--I much prefer the downtown location to the uptown one

Everything was great except me and a friend got two beds and were given 1 queen size bed with no warning or discount for having to share a room.

Hi there, Thank you very much for leaving this review! It's great to hear you had such a good time with us :) I am sorry for the confusion about your bed, but the queen size bed is the one you booked online! We will never give two people one big bed together if not requested or booked beforehand. The queen size bed is a really nice, cheap option though if you don't mind sharing a bed! We are sorry you didn't notice booking this. Thanks again for your time! Cheers The Flying Pig Uptown

Awesome place to stay! The atmosphere is great and everyone was super friendly. There's a bar in the basement with a good cheap variety and a large smoking room close by. Less than a 5 min walk to the metro and about a 15 minute walk to dam square.

Enjoyed our stay. Be ready to climb some serious stairs and walk a solid 20-25 minute to central station.

Tiny room & bathroom, but I didn't find it a bother since I was out all day anyway. Convenient power outlet and shelf next to bed. Smoking area for those looking to fully indulge in Amsterdam lifestyle. Great staff, very helpful with where to go and what to see. Staff checked at least twice a day to see if everything was clean enough. Overall great stay!

Really nice environment and in a good location for the price. Staff friendly. Only negatives were that the shower temperature couldn't be turned down.

Comfy beds, clean bathrooms, and awesome hang out bar/smoking area! Great vibes to take advantage of but also walking distance to everything you want to see in Amsterdam!

Super cramped rooms with little ventilation. Great breakfast. Really good location - within walking distance to almost every major site.

So far,this is the best "party"hostel and one of the best I have eva been. everybody was very nice with me, I felt kind of at homeINaPUB(THEbarIZELF is fun and interesting for all the people u can meet and the atmosphere). however I did not give the maximum in security because once I did some mistake with the locker:eventuallyI found all the things out, instead of the machine asking me to put more coins...they clean very well,toilets pretty fresh, but I am alergic to dust and the upper floor:(:)

The staff and hostel were excellent. I'm writing on my phone so I'm going to keep it short but everything about my stay here was wonderful. Every employee we came across was helpful and friendly. Highly recommended.

The Flying Pig Hostels are some of my favorite hostels Ive ever stayed at (4th time). Love the vibes and its always a great place to meet cool and fun people. Personally I like the Downtown hostel better as the location is better in my opinion. It takes a while to walk to and from the uptown hostel but it is right next to the Vondelpark and Rijksmuseum. Only negative was that I'm allergic to cats and they had a cat roaming around downstairs but other than that it was a great experience as usual.

Wonderful experience for our first time at a hostel! The staff was helpful with our questions about the city and made excellent recommendations! Very close to the tram which made it easy to get around!

Coolest hostel ever. Wasn't the cleanest but for the money that we paid it was the cheapest ($13) and the best value for Amsterdam. Bathrooms could have been cleaner but all you had to do was tell the staff and it was cleaned instantly. They have queen beds available for pairs traveling together so make sure you specify what bed type you want-- but it's super cheap if you do the queen. Don't worry you won't be paired with a rando, you need two to reserve a queen.

מקום מומלץ לכל מי שמחפש את חווית אמסטרדם המושלמת, הוסטל זול שכולל ארוחת בוקר שווה, קלאסי לחברה צעירים שמטיילים או מי שמטייל לבד ( כמוני) מקום נהדר להכיר אנשים, הכל נקי וצוות מדהים שעוזר בהכללל אפילו איפה אפשר לקנות את הבראוניז הכי טוב! ( בקופישופ ׳הדולפין׳;) וכמובן- חדר עישון בתוך ההוסטל פתוח 24 שעות, אחלה מוזיקה והמיקום במרכז של המרכז. הגעתי למקום בהפתעה , הייתי שם 4 ימים ונהנתי מכל רגע!! מומלץ בחום

Great. There is a bar and a smoking room. We could use lockers to leave baggages even after checking out. Friendly and helpful staff, great atmosphere. One negative: the room was quite stuffy in the morning and the windows couldn't be opened.
