Very clean, good free breakfast, some rooms are better than others. Very close to museums, walking distance to the center but a tram ride away from train station. The kitchen is unavailable from 10 pm till 1 pm which sucks. A supermarket 5 minutes away. The smoking public is all in the special room, so unless somebody gets really high and makes a racket in the room, you can be free from it. Good for a long stay, not ideal if you need to dash in and out of town very quickly.

Hi, Thanks for your feedback, we're glad that you enjoyed your stay. It is unfortunate that we must restrict our kitchen opening times to between 1pm and 10:30pm but it is crucial for our morning breakfast service and to ensure a thorough clean after the kitchen is closed. We hope you come and stay with us again! Cheers - The Flying Pig Uptown

We stayed at the hostel over new years period so bear that in mind but the atmosphere was really good lot's of people downstairs having a drink and theres a smoking room so generally downstairs alot of people who you can get to know and meet. The hostel is probably a 15-20min walk into the main area like dam square but that was fine for us! The staff were really really helpful and happy to help whenever! Was a bit expensive but what do you expect over new years eve! Recommend definatly!

Good location, the rooms and facilities are clean. Negative points: the lockers in the room are not very safe and you need a very big padlock so not super easy and the table for eating the breakfast are super limited, there is not enough space for everyone...

Thank you for your review! Your feedback helps us a lot with improving our hostel! We have a safe in reception to store valuables, and we sell padlocks. We hope this helps your sense of security for a future stay. When everybody has breakfast at the same time it does get a bit crowded. We will look into a solution for this. Thanks again! - The Flying Pig Uptown

I really like this hostel. I have been there twice and it has been always a good experience. The staff is really great and the reception is 24h, which is very important for me. The place is clean and really close to the Museumplein and to Ledseplein. If I go back to Amsterdam again, I will definitely stay at this hostel one more time.

Great hostel. Lockers in rooms to keep things safe, bar down stairs and in a quiet location within walking distance to everything! Very clean toilets and showers and a good happy hour in the bar

This is a beautiful Hostel, clean and cozy. I loved the free breakfast in the mornings. It was pretty conveniently located, and the staff helped us out heaps with a good Car park recommendation. My partner and I felt a lack of bonding with other Hostelmates and staff, I don't blame this on the hostel necessarily. It could have been due to us being a little to reserved, or possibly because it is off season and bit more calm and quiet. The queen beds were perfect for my partner and I to share.

Had a looooovely stay at this hostel, the atmosphere was awesome and the place is filled with great people! Both staff sand guests. Location is great, about 15 minutes walk to Leidseplein. And you feel like you're in a very safe area. Wish I could've stayed longer, I'll definitely be staying here again the next time I visit Amsterdam. Note: best suited for young people and/or backpackers who don't mind other young people and/or backpackers.

Thanks a lot for your review! We look forward to welcoming you again! Next time ask for quicker directions to Leidseplein, it should only take 5-10 minutes :) - The Flying Pig Uptown

As always this hostel is amazing... Great staff, great breakfast, good kitchen facilities, a smoking room... My only complaint is the showers can be temperamental when it comes to temperature and there could be a night light in the bedroom (or individual lights) to avoid crashes with furniture in the middle of the night... I always recommend this hostel to people visiting Amsterdam :)

Great atmosphere, good vibes, smoking room, breakfast is good, staff are nice, bathrooms are a bit small and not all beds have lights but that wasn´t really a problem.

Overall everything was good. Breakfast was very nice! Two things I didn't like: kitchen was really small and wifi only worked in the bar (there was no other common area) which is noisy of course..And another thing, it's cheaper if you book online!

Thank you for your review! We are glad you enjoyed most of it! We are in the process of improving our Wi-Fi, so when you decide to stay with us again in the future that should hopefully not be an issue anymore! - The Flying Pig Uptown

Never been at a hostel with a pillow fight!! So much fun, and great atmosphere overall, and those mini pizzas were great munchie food! The stairs did get annoying after a while, but I guess that's part of the experience :D

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you very much for your review! That night with the pillow fight was hilarious! See the stairs as a bit of exercise we didn't even charge you for! :) We hope to see you again next time you decide to travel to Amsterdam! - The Flying Pig Uptown
