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

Overview

Start your Amsterdam adventure at the Flying Pig Downtown, right in the heart of the city. We're famous for our friendly vibe. Get into deep conversations with like-minded travellers over drinks in our bar (share your passions!), practise your skills on the pool table or bag a space on a pillow in our lounge. We host regular DJ nights so you can dance until dawn right here under our roof. If you want a night off, make dinner in our guest kitchen – take it out onto our outdoor terrace for sunset views.

Location

We're right on Amsterdam’s busiest shopping street, Nieuwendijk, where you can shop all day – and party all night. It's easy to get here: Centraal Station is just a five-minute walk away and runs trains to and from Schiphol Airport every 10 minutes until 1am. Bit of a culture vulture? Lots of the city's attractions are within a 10 minute walk, including Amsterdam’s oldest building, Oude Kerk, and the infamous Amsterdam Red Light District.

Rooms and Dorms

We have mixed and female-only dorms, where bunks have handy reading lights, and cosy private rooms come complete with TVs and mini-fridges. All of our beds come with free linen, so you can give your sleeping bag a break. Carrying valuables? Our rooms have individual lockers for your cameras or phones – bring a padlock or pick one up from reception. The free Wi-Fi is perfect for planning your day.

Extras and activities

Want to explore the city but don’t know where to start? Join our free walking tour that runs from the hostel every day. You’ll get a handy city map plus discounts on things to do. If you’re here for the all-night party scene (it's awesome), we're open 24 hours with keycard access so you won’t get locked out. The morning after, we’ve got your back. Grab a buffet breakfast every day for only 3 euros, or if you overslept there's always lunch in the café.

    Loved the flying pig! Right in the red light district which is not my favorite part of the city but I had the best time at this hostel. Hostel staff are awesome and the atmosphere is very fun and inviting. They had live music too which was really great!

    I liked my stay at the hotel. I liked the layout of the room, each bed has its own plug socket. It's a shame if you buy through hostel world, and not direct on the flyingpig website you don't get the breakfast and must pay $4euros each day - I think it should be included. I felt safe - only annoyance is I had booked an all female dorm and a girl bought her male friend back - I mean how rude and inconsiderate he left after 20mins of me saying something, but that's not the hostel's fault.

    Great hostel, especially for solo travelers. Really easy to meet people at the bar. Definitely stay at flying pigs but would recommend uptown location instead just because it’s closer to most of the sites and clubs/bars.

    We really enjoyed our stay here, the room was clean and the whole hostel had a really good atmosphere, especially at night. There was a mouse in our room, which slightly put us off however we would stay here again.

    Was great as far as hostels go but the space seemed to be dominated by men and unfortunately the ones in my room happened to be creepy. In saying that, that’s not the fault of the hostel. Beds were clean, bar was good.

    This is a great hostel for those who want to be close to the centre and see the touristy, ‘fun’ side of Amsterdam that it’s so well known for. The location really was was fantastic and only a short walking distance to central train station. It was a little on the run-down side for me though, even though beds were comfortable enough, security cages for suitcases and enough toilets and showers.
