It could be better. Room is small, and stairs is too narrow. I didn't like smoking room. Many people smoke maruana and all hostel smoke . But all staff are helpfull and friendly. Location is very well.

Only stayed here for one night on my way to Bolivia so I don't have a lot to judge it on but for my one night it was great, the bar downstairs seemed lively but it was quiet in my room up near the top which was good. Easy to get to and close to a lot of sights.

The Beds are suffciently big and comfortable. The overall cleanliness and Hygiene of the place exceeded my somewhat low expectations. The linnen was near spotless and the showers were nice and clean with a steady supply of hot water. The wi-fi worked just fine, even inside the rooms on the top most floor. the Breakfast spread was pretty varied and most items seemed frseh and more than platable.The fact that it is complimentary is a big bonus in my book.

Staff were very friendly and helpful with buses and directions. The stairs are a massive menace if you are staying in the 10 dorm rooms but you definitely develop some biceps. Breakfast is a great bonus. Great atmosphere!

Hi there, Thank you very much for your feedback! We are very happy to see you enjoyed your stay with us :) Unfortunately, due to the traditional Dutch architecture of our building, we do not have an elevator. But our staff is always happy to help out with luggage! Thanks again for your time! Cheers, The Flying Pig Uptown

stay at the hostel was excellent, maybe you shoud lower some of the prices at the bar, or get more ventilation in the smoking room. The rest was great, staff was super helpful

Great hostel, fun bar on site, clean beds. Super quick and easy walk to the center an a square with any necessary amenities just a couple minutes away, so no need to use the expensive public transport. Just far enough off the main street that it's nice and quiet for when you finally need some sleep. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, always willing to answer any questions we had. A bit expensive but I think everything is in Amsterdam. Overall had a great time. Loved the art :p

A bit of a walk from most of the city. But I thought it was nice not being right in the middle of the riffraff that is Amsterdam during NYE. Very cool layout of the hostel. The staff were all super friendly and outgoing. Bar and smoke room were nice as well. A bit pricey but we were there during the week of New Years- but I thought it was definitely worth the money I paid. Looking forward to a future stay at the flying pig uptown for sure

This hostel was pretty cool. It was clearly a party hostel. I didn't really like the bar/smoke room lounge. For me personally it wasn't the most conducive to meeting people because I'm not one to make friends in a bar, but for many that won't be an issue.

Excellently-run hostel. Just about everything is exactly as it should be: bathrooms are clean, showers are hot and have good pressure, beds are clean and comfortable, and there is plenty of storage available. The staff is friendly and helpful as well. Main knock: The hostel has a reputation for being a party hostel. That's fine, but a drunk group of guests loudly barged into my room at 3AM one morning and woke everyone up. That's plain rude, and staying here means risking restful sleep.

Nice place to stay at central location , all major destinations are nearby and are at a walking distance from this hostel. Great staff , good atmosphere , lively people. A decent place to stay over

Located in a snazzy part of town but a fair walk from food and the city centre. Hostel was relatively clean and the bar was well stocked but lacking in a proper common area. The only common area was a bar and smoking lounge which is a little hard to socialise in. Overall pretty good for a chain hostel!

I totally recommend the Flying Pig! Aside from the kitchen (that is OK, but could be better) everything is perfect!
