A great institution! Manages to be really well run and organised without seeming bossy and irritating. These guys know how to host us, and have thought of everything. It's the 5th or 6th time I've stayed and will always use it as my AMS base. Can't recommend enough.

The Flying Pig Uptown is how every should aspire to be. A great location, warm and friendly staff, rocking tunes, and a swell crowd. I walked to the Downtown one, but found that it is quite in the centre of the hustle and bustle, whereas the Uptown one is located in the nicer part of town, with a park nearby and most of the museums within walking distance. The rooms and facilities are well managed, neat and clean, leaving no cause for complaint.

I would recommend this place in a heartbeat! Such an amazing atmosphere. As long as you're prepared for a steep staircase, this place will treat you right

Great hostel, and great to meet people. A bit of a party hostel as it aims to be, but rooms were quiet at night. Could use an elevator and a iron.

Hey There, Thanks a million for leaving us a review! It's great to read you had such a great time partying with us but also got a good nights sleep :) Unfortunately, as our building is a traditional Dutch townhouse, we cannot install an elevator. We are glad to see this did not affect your stay with us. We will take your suggestion for an iron onboard. Thanks again for your time, hopefully we can welcome you again in the future! Cheers, The Flying Pig Uptown

We really enjoyed the flying pig. It is in a great location and has really good vibes. Really expensive though for the time of year/in general... However we couldn't really find much cheaper so it was a good splurge. Good breakfast too!

Stayed in 4 different rooms due to availability, which was fine. The staff super helpful. One of the rooms, there was no hot water in shower and it never got fixed. Bathroom wasn't always cleaned thoroughly. Convenient checking in/out times allows for smooth transition even moving rooms. No elevator and narrow steep stairwells mean for backpackers and not suitcase carriers!

AWESOME hostel. If you're in Amsterdam to really "relax" this hostel definitely is suited for you. Facilities are cleaned daily, breakfast is absolutely huge (and free!) and location is ideal given its proximity to the Rijksmuseum, Vondelpark and inner city area :) Highly recommended!

Enjoyed this hostel. It was in a great location. We walked downtown most days and all around Amsterdam. We loved everyone we met here and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The showers and bathrooms are very small but that's okay since what do you expect when staying at a hostel. The bar was always very popular and it was easy to meet people. Would stay here again.

Fun hostel! A little on the outskirts of city center, but easy commute via trams or bike, and very close to Vondelpark. Nice, carpeted dorm rooms with crate-size lockers under the beds (bring your own lock). Showers average. Bar downstairs is fun, makes it easy to meet others. Pretty good free breakfast! Smoke room downstairs next to the bar/restaurant... didn't love this, but... it IS Amsterdam! Staff is helpful. Go on the red light district pub crawl - so fun! Would definitely stay here again.

This hostel was fantastic. It's a bit of a ways from city center, but I preferred that because it was in a nice area and not as hectic. Great places to go out right around the corner. I also was able to walk everywhere. Staff is amazing, and the bar and smoking room make it really easy to meet people,especially as a solo traveler. Would highly recommend.

Great location. Right next to Vondelpark. The food places next to Holland Casino are just a walk away. Really cool bar and breakfast area. Staff is very friendly. Walking inside the hostel on the narrow staircases could be a bit tight and challenging if you have large pieces of luggage(which we had one of), but it's a one time lugging affair. So, not that bad. The room was a bit old fashioned with carpet floors and metal bunk beds with lockers, compared to newer hostels. But it was clean & tidy.

I thought that the staff were nice and the atmosphere was good. I liked that they had a smoking area but it was always busy during peak times. The bedrooms were nicely decorated and clean. And the breakfast was simple but nice, although this got really busy too.
