Awesome place! Everyone is chill including the staff, very easy to meet people plus the smokers room is heaven for anyone who doesn't want to constantly have to go to a coffee shop or face the outside world.


For starters on check in the girl that checked us in no smile no Hello just glared at me, due to the music being so loud she asked for my passport, I asked her to repeat, she didn't bother raising her voice in the slightest for me and again I needed her to repeat if looks could kill I'd be 6ft under. The room was horrible Mario Kart style I feel like my €232 was wasted as the room was tiny no view, bfast just cereal what did I pay all that money for I'm glad I checked out early. Other staff wereNice

Hi there, Thank you very much for you review. We can learn a lot from it for the future, so we really appreciate it you took the time to fill this out. We are very sorry to read though, your stay with us was not as expected and you even checked out earlier! We will contact you personally to find out more about what happened. Thanks again for your time! Cheers, The Flying Pig Uptown


Great breakfast, location and atmosphere. However management and staff are a huge problem for this hostel. While there they double booked beds in the dorm 4 nights out of 5. Then move the person that was there first as they checked in the last person and didn't want to admit they screwed up. Staff complaining about other staff being sick and staff pulling sickies. Also had items stolen. And room was freezing.


Excellent hostel. the staff are great and always happy to help. the location of the hostel is really good, just in front of the vondelpark and minutes away walking from the famous leidseplein area. Moreover, 2 min walk from the tram station. I would recommend it for anyone, really felt like home.


a really cool hostel with good facilities, a good lounge space (with smoking area!) and some great tunes.
