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

COVID 19 Policy Update.
In response to Coronavirus (COVID-19), additional safety and sanitation measures are currently in effect at this property, including social distancing and in-house disinfection. Guests are NOT allowed to use the kitchen due to the restrictions, until the social distancing rules are eased.

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 €5.

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.

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

    I've stayed at the hostel three times now and just keep coming back! The location is perfect since you're right next to vondelpark and really close to other attractions. In 5 minutes you can walk to Leidseplein for all your clubbing and terrace needs which is great. The bar/common areas at the hostell itself are super nice and it's easy to meet people. Everything was reasonably priced and the staff is beyond amazing! Go stay here, you won't regret it!

    Such a cool hostel and bar. The staff really made the experience- they were all so nice and interesting and outgoing. The rooms were nothing special but no one spends any time in them so it doesn’t matter much. The proximity to Vondelpark was a major upside, and it’s 5-10 mins walk from the central canal district. Loved my stay here and wish I could’ve stuck around longer! Only criticism- the lockers in the rooms are way too small for most large backpacks/suitcases.

    I had a very good experience at Hostel Pig Uptown during my 3 day visit to amsterdam. There was a minor glitch during my check-in but the hostel staff was kind enough to find me a comfortable accomodation for the night and were very proactive even though it was late at night. The cafe is amazing and the breakfast should definitely be tried.

    Had a great time at this hostel. Staff was excellent and the atmosphere was incredible! The bar was very lively at night. You get a lock box under your bed which can hold your big backpacks and a pair of shoes comfortably. It’s a 5 minute walk from most of the popular museums if that’s one of your main interests in Amsterdam.

    Although promised on the website, the kitchen wasn't available. I tried to cancel my booking when I was told this on the arrival. The reception told is not possible to cancel but offered me a room in another hostel of their chain for my two following nights.

    In general it was fine. The location is good if you like to walk and the neighborhood is cosy. I guess the price for a big city as Amsterdam is still ok.

    The staff was very passive aggressive, there were bedbugs, and the bathrooms were always disgusting. Yes there are lots of positive reviews for this place but there’s better hostels in the area that are closer to the city center.

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!
