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.

Thank you very much for your review! We are really glad to read you had a good stay overall! We understand that you are disappointed about the fact that you still had to pay for your first night. Unfortunately we can not take responsibility for the fact that a third company cancels a flight, and we have a 24h cancellation policy. We hope you understand. Thanks again, We hope you decide to stay with us again! - The Flying Pig Uptown

I really enjoyed my stay here. We were so close to everything and there was a beautiful park just right across the road from the hostel. The breakfast was really good and the staff were so friendly. The shower room was a little small but other than that this place will definitely be where I stay the next time im in Amsterdam.

Much smaller common rooms than than: flying pig downtown, really small kitchen, better than most hostels in Amsterdam that have no common room or kitchen. Good breakfast and close to a big park that have BBQ and other actives.

One of the best hostels I've stayed in! Location was superb. It's about a 10 or 15 minutes stroll from the city centre in a nice quiet area! You're not too far from bars or restaurants here. Staff were really friendly and helpful and the onsite bar had a good atmosphere! Beds were comfortable and facilities really clean every time I used them.

Perfect balance between existing in the museum zone and having cheap beer and a "Smoking Room". Very nice staff!

Excellent hostel, great guest and great staff who are always happy to help as well as chat at the bar. Had our own bathroom in our 6 bed dorm also which was a first for me in a dorm of that size. Location is fantastic, out of the way of the main part of town so it's a bit more quiet but a quick tram or 20 minute walk will get you into the city center if you want to go there. Also had cages under the beds to lock luggage in, I never needed to lock it once!

The flying pig is amazingly located, the staff were 100% of the time helpful and nice people and the bar/smoking area was pretty dope; i was solo travelling and i made a lot of friends there. My room was in the 4th floor so no noise would come. Toilets separated from showers and i kinda liked the idea: showers are bigger and private. Definitely staying here next time.
