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 20-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 a bar with indoor smoking area where you'll meet lots of people. This lively bar has theme nights, the cheapest beer in town and daily drinks specials!

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

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 €3,-.

This spring and summer you can enjoy Amsterdam's famous green grass in the beautiful Vondelpark, right outside the Flying Pig Uptown, for drinks, smokes and picnics. Check out the free musical and cultural performances on the park stage or play games with your (new) friends in your bare feet.

If you're in for some culture, the Van Gogh museum and the Rijksmuseum (with the 'Nachtwacht') are just around the corner, same as the beautiful Concert Building and the 'I Amsterdam' letters. 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. Looking to relax? Why not share a smoke, drink and a blanket with your (newly made) friends on the green grass of the famous Vondelpark.

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 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.

    Loved the Flying Pig. I've stayed at 2 Flying Pig hostels now, the beach one and now uptown. Uptown seems to be good for party goers, but is also a great place for people wanting to relax. It is located super close to a lot of bars, food places, and coffeeshops, as well as overlooking Vondel Park. Atmosphere is super chill, staff are friendly, rooms are pretty good value for money. Nothing to complain about from our stay, and lots to praise!

    great atmosphere. Rooms were quiet and not too hot. Friendly and helpful staff. The toilet situation on the first floor is not ideal but not the end of the world. Would highly recommend to others

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!

Things to Note

The Flying Pig has an age restriction; we welcome guests from above 18 to the eternal young at heart! Anyone under the age of 18 can't stay with us.

It is not allowed to bring your own sleeping bag or pillow. Our beds are ready-made for you. We have a 72hr cancellation policy. Late cancellations and no-shows shall be charged the equivalent of one night's stay. The 12% deposit is not refundable in case of cancellations. We do our best to accommodate you (together with your friends) in the dorm of your choice. However, due to the nature of our business, room arrangements and price may be slightly different. 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!
