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.

This hostel was fine. Nothing special. Too crowded in fact. Not a cool place to sit and chill and meet peopl. I remember I sat down with one girl and she promptly said "sorry this seat's taken..." The staff was pretty cool. The one dude i chilled with was nice. The bathrooms were disgusting. The beds and the rooms were comfy. GREAT LOCATION.

Fantastic social layout and good vibes here as well all the facilities an cleanliness you would hope to find in a hostel - full marks all round. Note it is about a 10min walk to the centre of Amsterdam but it's interesting all the way and not an isssue at all.

Yo man the flying pig is like pretty chill man. Tons of dope people and dope dope dude. If you're like in amsterdam(yea amsterdam brah!) and you're like a mellow dude with good vibes the flying pig is like your place G. I mean dude it's right by the Van Gogh museum, you know the dude with the trippy artwork bro! It's like not far from the Anne Frank house which is like in all seriousness a staunch reminder of the horrors of fascism man, like my dad dude he's such a fascist! Peace out dawg!

Myself and Group of friends stayed in this hostel for 3 nights (Thu/Fri/Sat) and left on the sunday, Overall was very happy with the hostel, nothing was a bother, the staff were friendly and welcoming, the beds & room were ideal and just exactly what you want/need if you are only staying for a few days like myself. The main area of Amsterdam (Dam square etc) is approx a 15 minute walk, or a few mins on a tram. Ideal! I would recommend this hostel and I would come back again.

Flying Pig got its reputation for a reason. It has an eclectic group of people, and it definitely helped make my stay in Amsterdam fantastic. I would recommend.

Great hostel if you don't mind being out of the city's center. Museums, coffeeshops, clubs/bars are still at a walking distance. The hostel is clean and has a friendly atmosphere. The bar and smoking room are good for meeting new people.

I liked the accommodation, the location and the staff, but I didn't like the atmosphere, which is really in accordance with the Amsterdam atmosphere, full of young people getting high almost every time. It's not a fault of this specific hostel, as almost all the central Amsterdam is like that. I really missed a laundry inside the hostel.

Very nice hostel, with a very cool bar, really easy to meet people in there. Good if you are travelling alone or with a couple friends. The breakfast was pretty nice for a hostel. Spacious room, some showers were too small but there was one with a good size in my floor. The only "downside", if I can call this, are the stairs, god there are stairs, pray for you to get a room in a low floor. hehehehehe, other than that pretty nice hostel.

Hi there, Thanks a lot for your great review! We are very happy to see you enjoyed our bar and breakfast! Unfortunately, due to the original Dutch architecture of our building, there is no elevator. But our staff is always more than happy to help out taking luggage upstairs :) Thanks again for your time and we are looking forward to welcoming you again next time you are in Amsterdam! Cheers, The Flying Pig Uptown

Quite expensive to stay here, which may be normal for this area. The common room is a bar, which isn't great if you're not a drinker. It's one of the cleanest hostels I've stayed in. Some of the nightclubs in this area are bad, with door policies that are not tourist-friendly.
