Très bonne auberge, pas loin du musée Van Gogh. Le personnel est très sympa. Nous étions 8 et nous devions être séparés dans deux chambres mais l'auberge s'est finalement arrangée pour que l'on soit tous ensemble. Le petit-dej est très bien et l'ambiance générale également. Seul petit bémol sur la sécurité : les cadenas pour les casiers sont à acheter. Il faut donc prévoir son cadenas dans le cas où l'on a des affaires qui sont précieuses.

The staff were friendly to help and informed. Thanks for helping carrying our heavy luggages. The facilities are clean and workable. You can bring your own lock for the locker inside room. If you bring something luxury such as laptop, there is also a keeping place provide in front desk. Good experience!

Flying pig is a party hostel in a party city. This attracts all kinds of characters some good some bad. The hostel had accommodating staff along with a great bar and smoking room. The rooms were simple but the beds were surprisingly comfy. I would recommend the Flying Pig Uptown to anyone looking to make the most of the nightlife available in Amsterdam.

Room and bathroom were very small but the basement had a bar that was fairly lively all the time. Staff were very helpful and knowledgeable about the city and things to do. Only downside was the location - not very close to the city centre or to the train station.

Hi, thanks for your review. Due to our architecture we opted for a larger number of slightly smaller bathrooms so that we were able to reduce bathroom/shower waiting times. Our hostel is located next to Vondel park and a number of museums and late clubs a 10 minute tram ride from Central Station. We hope our location did not negatively affect your stay with us and look forward to seeing you again in the future! Cheers - The Flying Pig Uptown

Very limited bathroom and shower facilities. Too many people allocated to amount of bathrooms. Very expensive for the service received.

Great location , clean, fun, 24 hour smoking room, keep your bags in the lockers even after you have left! thye keep your important belongings behind the desk for free, they let us stay in the bar/ smoking room all night when we had no where to stay. Free breakfast, a nice one too! Stayed in two different rooms, both clean, one had a private bathroom/shower, great atmosphere, wanted to stay for longer but they were fully booked. Staff could not have been nicer, polite, friendly. Loved it here!

Great hostel, my major issue was although I had booked a ten bed mixed dorm, I wasn't prepared for it to be me and nine guys in the one room. I spoke to other females and they said the same thing had happened to them.

Second time here and it's a awesome place to stay. Great atmosphere and a place I always look forward to coming back to after a night out. Always meet cool people here. Great for a solo backpacker, or In a group. Wish the staff offered a private pub crawl, as the one they offer sucks.

Lots and lots of stairs to get to your room and bar. Staff were friendly. Opposite a nice park to picnic in and walk around. Had to catch the tram into city centre. We stayed in an 8 bed dorm and it was quite expensive (about 35euro per person per night ).

Hi, thank you for your review. Unfortunately due to our traditional architecture we are unable to accommodate an elevator, but our staff are always happy to carry luggage for guests. The city centre is a 20min walk or 10min tram ride depending on your preference. We apologise for any inconvenience the stairs might have caused and hope to see you again soon!
