Good location, £5 wet shave from the barber accross the road was a highlight and some humming bars in the immediate vicinity. Found the area quite alternative, lots of graffiti
Great hostel, very cheap and good atmosphere. Met lots of people and the facilities were nice. I personally thought the location was pretty ghetto & out of the way but tbh it didn't make much difference to our time there was a nice walk into the city & a cheap taxi home from clubs. Would happily recommend & stay again.
The hostel is very well located. We will book into this hostel again next time we are in Dublin
The pig downtown is a great hostel to meet people, staff are friendly and the location is unbeatable. I stayed in a massive 32bed dorm with my girl friend and its was sweet, people were very curtious and its easy to get sleep during the day or @ night. Cheap drinks at the bar and a cosy smoking room with bean bags etc. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Amsterdam. Book early because the get fully booked up pretty quick
