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

COVID 19 Policy Update.
In response to Coronavirus (COVID-19), additional safety and sanitation measures are currently in effect at this property, including in-house disinfection.

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 €5.

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 €5.

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 a 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 licenses are NOT accepted. View House Rules

    For seasoned travel veterans, or those looking to try Hostel's for the first time. You can't go wrong with the Flying Pig Downtown. From check-in to check-out the staff are friendly, accommodating, and fun. The bar is a great place to meet people. And the central location ensures you are never far from something to do. The dorms are clean and comfortable. The shower and toilet facilities are cleaned daily. Plenty of hot water. Can be noisy at night as it is a party hostel. All in all, perfect

    I loved staying at this hostel. It was a stop on my first solo trip and it was so easy to meet people here just sitting in common rooms or at happy hour. You’re in such a good location and Amsterdam is already really easy to walk around in. I would definitely recommend this to everyone and anyone.

    Such a great hostel! Very social and easy to meet people in the bar which is open until 3am. The location is very central! Staff are super friendly. Our room had AC which was a saving grace! Showers were generally clean. Only downside was it is quite pricey compared to other hostels I’ve stayed in, although this is common for Amsterdam.

    A surprise. I was expecting much worse but the price was too high for a city hostel when compared to other country capital cities.

    The Flying Pig Downtown Amsterdam has a great location, it's close to Central Station, the museums, coffee shops, smart shops, RLD, clubs, etc. It also has a bar, pool, a smoking space and a cannabis room. A couple of issues were the bathroom in the second floor, either someone was using it or sometimes it was not clean enough, and the shower is too small. Regarding price, compare to German hostels, it cost almost twice. As a city, Amsterdam is gorgeous and the people there are very friendly!

    My favorite aspects of staying in this hostel were the proximity to the central train station, cheap happy hour drinks, and helpful staff. My least favorite aspects were the hostel not having any events (other than the bar’s happy hour), no food options near the hostel, and the nightly rate being close to $80 USD. I’d highly recommend running some events for the hostel, because then I feel the cost would be warranted for Amsterdam
