We love this Hostel!

It gets our thumbs up for consistently high guest reviews.

Hostelworld says

Flying Pig Uptown is located near Leidseplein, the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, and is also next to the large Vondelpark, a popular relaxation spot. We like that this hostel has a bar and smoking area downstairs and is 'very close to bars and the tram stop', according to our guests. Several visitors have also told us they appreciate the homey atmosphere, which feels 'more like hanging out in a friend's house than a hostel'.

Property Description

As the original Flying Pig hostel, we can't wait to welcome you again!

We're located perfectly central in-between the museum and fashion district, the Vondelpark and Leidseplein, where the best concert-halls, clubs, bars and coffee shops are and most locals go out. You'll get that real Amsterdam feel and are still close enough to the red light district, which is only a 25-minute walk.

The Pig has been world-famous for its laid back atmosphere, with a hostel bar that everyone keeps talking about and friendly, helpful staff. We have a guest kitchen and an indoor smoking area where you'll meet plenty of fellow travelers. This lively bar has regular event nights, the cheapest beer in town and daily drinks specials!

Almost every bed in our dorms has a reading light, (including both our single and queen-size bunk beds) and free individual lockers in the rooms (bring your own padlock or buy one at reception for €3.50.

The Flying Pig Uptown provides free linen, free use of our reception safe for small valuables, free Wi-Fi, a book exchange and munchy food for sale! There is also a continental style breakfast available every morning for €4.

This spring and summer you can enjoy Amsterdam's famous green grass in the beautiful Vondelpark, right outside the Flying Pig Uptown. Enjoy some drinks, smokes, or have a picnic. You can also check out the free musical and cultural performances on the park stage or play games with your (new) friends out on the open grassy areas.

If you're in for some culture, the Van Gogh, Stedelijk and Rijksmuseum (with the 'Nachtwacht') are just around the corner, same as the beautiful Concert Building. Do you want to explore the Red Light District, some historic sites or Chinatown? Just take a stroll - everything is within walking distance. Public transport is close by, too.

But there's always more: go shopping at one of the local markets (such as the Albert Cuijp in the Pijp area) or the 'Nine Little Streets', drink a beer at the Amsterdam Heineken Museum or have a wild night out in the so-called pop temple the Paradiso, within crawling-home distance.

We're open 24 hours with night security and no curfews or lockout. Access is by keycard.

Please note that the Flying Pig has an age restriction; we welcome guests from above 18 to the eternal young at heart! We do not accommodate anyone under the age of 18 years. 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.

We also want to inform you that we have a hostel cat, Lola, who is allowed in the bar area of the hostel but who we do not allow in the rooms. We don't have a lift in our building and quite some stairs so if you things this would be a problem for you, please contact us before you book!

Please read our Things To Note below. We only accept groups of up to 10 people through Hostelworld. View House Rules

    Most comfortable hostel beds ever! Very cool vibes and chill staff. Wish there were more events and activities to help spur conversation for solo travelers, but still easy to make friends in the bar or smoking room. Awesome location! So close to museums and right across from Vondelpark! Would totally stay here again!

    Well worth the value for money. Hostel was in an excellent location and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful and accommodating. The place was perfectly clean, albeit a bit worn, and we saw many staff members giving the bathrooms and bedrooms a thorough cleaning daily. The only downfall was the lack of an elevator. This wasn’t a problem for our group but the stairs were very steep which could pose challenges to guests who require extra accommodation, so be aware of that. Thanks again!

    Nice hostel with a bar and smoking room downstairs, located right next to Vondelpark. All facilities are kept clean, however toilets and kitchen are very small and the kitchen is only open from 13:00 until 22:30 which is a bit annoying as there is no flexibility even if you arrive late!

    Smoking culture is great with the music and pool table in the smoking room, it’s right next to the bar where you can get some solid bar food.

    Awesome hostel with tons of activities going on and a great environment to make friends. Also the location is perfect. Right by a great park, and about a 30 minutes walk from the red light district which is fun when you're stoned off your balls.

    The hostel was really nice. Full of young travellers, bus must admit that was really cramped for the space available. But got a really nice sleep

    The staff is pretty much amazing. They guide you so well, I think it is a pretty good place to rest and chill and sleep. The beds are good and there’s ample sockets near the bed. The only problem I faced was with the showers and toilets which were dirty all the time. The toilets were absolutely tiny, you couldn’t even stand in them properly. It was a real struggle to be honest. The stairs are also a pain in the ass, there are no elevators taking your luggage all the way up is a bit annoying.

Flying Pig Uptown says

I think that one of the best things about this hostel is our smoking area, because let's be honest....a lot of people come to Amsterdam to smoke! But if you don't like to smoke you can also have a great time at our hostel. We have a bar and we're really close to the famous Vondelpark, Leidseplein (the entertainment area), Museumplein (Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum) - so if you want to go out and shop, eat, drink, visit museums or find a coffee shop, everything is just around the corner. Personally I recommend that visitors go for a stroll around the 'Nine Little Streets', called '9 Straatjes' in Dutch; they're great for shopping, food and drinks and nice views over the canals.
For fun we have daily free walking tours and pub crawls as well as great drink specials all day, every day. Our main age group is young travellers who like to meet new people and party, chill or do both!
