Das Hostel hat eine Toplage und alle sind sehr locker drauf. Leider war es in der Nacht extrem laut, sodass wir kaum schlafen konnten. Reist man in einer größeren Gruppe ist das Hostel aber sicher ein cooler Ort für ein paar lustige Tage.
It was one of the best hostel we ever lived in.
Uptown Pig compares well to Downtown. I preferred the Uptown common room because it was smaller and cosier. Also the staff were nicer in my experience and overall i preferred the vibe. The smoking room is well ventilated so the place didnt stink of pot if you're worried about that. Location is also good, Vondelpark is lovely and you're right near the museums. Short relaxed walk or tram ride into Amsterdam central too.
absolutely amazing! best hostel we've ever stayed at, the staff we're all very very helpful!!
Thanks for a great week and an unforgettable vacation!!
Great hostel, lots of character. Very clean and comfortable. Even has a smoking room where you can smoke weed. Little expensive, but I guess that's Amsterdam.
I originally was booked at this hostel for one night, but I ended up staying 3 because I loved it so much. The atmosphere is great and every staff member was kind and approachable. I would definitely go back to this hostel if and when I am back in Amsterdam. Thank you for a great weekend, uptown pigs!
Upon arrival, the reception staff was very friendly. The guy even carried my massive suitcase all the way to the top floor, for which I was truly grateful. The buzz on the main floor was infectious, and it really felt like the place to be. Very cool! A negative aspect of my brief stay was that I had to pay couple euros here and there for little unnecessary things such as keeping my large suitcase in the back room and for the use of the computer. Public computers would be nice.

Very fun hostel. The staff are great and very approachable. Half the time they'll just be hanging out in the bar or smoking area.
excellent service :D everyone is welcoming and hostel is very clean. lockers for 2 euros for one day made everything easy
Great hostel, really chilled out vibe, as good for partying as it is for taking it easy. Good breakfasts!!!
Great hostel in every way. smoking room available for those who are interested. The bar stays quiet due to thy low key location (away from tourist attractions). beautiful place to stay for a low key stay in Amsterdam.
I've stayed in this hostel twice, and both times have been excellent. This time myself and my sister stayed for four nights. The rooms and toilets were nice and clean and the staff were so friendly!! The only downside was that the showers were scalding hot, too hot to stand under sometimes!! Overall though I would deffo go back 😊

Tout était très bien. J'étais en train de voyager toute seule et il a manqué d'intégration pour activités en conjoint avec des autres voyageurs.
Had an awesome stay here. Staff were helpful, room is clean and comfortable. Will recommend!
GREAT HOSTEL. Despite being above a bar, the rooms are actually very quiet so you can get some shut eye when you call it a night. The bathrooms were very clean. Breakfast had a lot of variety, multiple cereals, breads, jams, nutella, fruits, and hard boiled eggs. Also, they have a water tap where you can get water at any point - which was much needed! Each bed had an individual light and outlet, and AMAZING pillows. This is one of the best hostels in my experience!
Very close to the major museums of the city! Common areas were a bit cramped though--I much prefer the downtown location to the uptown one
Everything was great except me and a friend got two beds and were given 1 queen size bed with no warning or discount for having to share a room.
Awesome place to stay! The atmosphere is great and everyone was super friendly. There's a bar in the basement with a good cheap variety and a large smoking room close by. Less than a 5 min walk to the metro and about a 15 minute walk to dam square.
Sujo. Nao recomendo
