We love this Hostel!

It gets our thumbs up for consistently high guest reviews.

Hostelworld says

Hostelworld guests at Flying Pig Downtown frequently comment on the hostel's high standard of cleanliness as well as their staff, who one of our visitors described as 'adorable, very friendly, talkative, helpful and always in a good mood'. We like this hostel's location in a central area of Amsterdam, about ten minutes from the Centraal Station 'which was easy to get to from the airport', making it the 'perfect way to experience everything Amsterdam has to offer'. Reviewers tell us this is a good place to meet fellow travellers as there are usually 'people hanging out at the bar, playing pool or socialising'.

Property Description

Do you want to hang out in one of the most famous hostel bars, including an indoor smoking area with pillow stage?
The Flying Pig Downtown is the place to be, located right next to Amsterdam Central Station.

We have dorms where every bed has a reading light, as well as private rooms with a little fridge and TV. Rates include free linen. There are single and queen-size bunk beds as well as a shower and toilet in most of the rooms. There are also free individual lockers in the rooms; bring your own padlock or buy one at reception for just €3,50.

The Flying Pig Downtown provides free use of the guest kitchen, luggage storage, free Wi-Fi, a book exchange and a lively hostel bar with DJ nights and the cheapest beer in town. There is also a buffet style continental breakfast available everyday for only €4.

Meeting people is very easy at this hostel while chilling on lounge pillows in the smoking area, drinking and playing pool in the bar, dancing to the music of local DJs and cooking meals in the guest kitchen.

We’re open 24hrs with keycard access to the hostel and there’s no curfew or lock-out. You can use the safe behind reception to store small valuables. Our reception offers tours and tickets to Amsterdam's attractions as well as Piggy merchandise.

We offer a free walking tour that picks guests up from the hostel everyday, a daily updated Amsterdam agenda, and a free detailed map of Amsterdam and discounts on several things to do in the city.

Leaving the Central Station, it is just a five-minute walk to the hostel and during this walk you'll already see the many restaurants, pubs, red lights of the famous Red Light District and shops. That's the party area where you'll most likely be spending your nights.

The hostel entrance is in Amsterdam's busiest shopping street and it is a perfect place to kick-start your night of club-, pub- and coffeeshop-hopping. Besides everything the hostel offers you, our international Piggy staff can provide you with all the information you need to get the most out of the Amsterdam experience.

Close to our hostel you will find the Red Light District with its famous windows. It’s very safe to walk around here and a good place to hang out when the night falls. There’s also Anne Frank House which brings you back to the time of the Second World War. In this house Anne Frank and her family hid away for years, before being deported to the concentration camp. The Royal Palace is very admirable too with its spectacular 16th-century halls and rooms, and Dam Square with its musical groups, performers and other entertainers.

Please note that we do not accommodate guests under the age of 18 and a form of Photo Identification is required upon check in.
Accepted forms are a valid passport or national ID card - driving licences are NOT accepted. View House Rules

    Great stay in this hostel. The bar is open until 3AM. Everyone seems to be friendly and chill. The staff are very accommodating. The lockers under the bunk beds need padlock, make sure you have yours. they do sell locks. They have hallway lockers too. You can play pool it’s coin operated, for just €1. They have a smoking area open 24/7. Ring their doorbell when checking-in. it’s above the key scanner. I didnt know this when I got to the place so I had to wait for someone to go inside.

    I really enjoyed this place a ton! It’s really in the midst of almost absolutely everything, and nearby enough small grocery stores, restaurants, and clothing stores to satisfy everything you need. Having an elevator is great, and paid lockers for a full day after you check out (only €2) is wonderful. Just make sure to book in advance if you’re thinking about making your stay longer, as they say pretty busy.

    Fabulous

    01 Sep 2019
    I had a great time staying in a 4 shared bed room with en-suite bathroom. The staff were friendly and helpful, the bed was comfortable and the location was superb! The hostel offered a variety of different amenities (eg. complimentary soap in the bathroom, power adapters, sleeping masks, towels etc.) and had useful facilities such as paid locker storage. There was no AC, but with the fan provided and the cooler early September nights I was very comfortable.

    Great hostel with a fun environment. Great drinking/smoking area for hanging out. Private room was a little dirty, could have been a little bit cleaner. Overall, a good experience.

    Very Good

    02 Sep 2019
    Initially I thought the place was great. We were three women from Canada and stayed in a 4 bed en suite. The bathrooms were clean, the location is fairly central. They provide you with a place to store your luggage. The atmosphere downstairs was great. Super cute pub type feeling and a smoking room. On our last day we noticed a mouse in our room and unfortunately that took away from the overall experience.
