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!

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.
Good location, walking distance to most attractions. Good sized room, and good atmosphere at the bar
