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 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 an indoor smoking area where you'll meet plenty of fellow travelers. This lively bar has themed 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 picnic here even. 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 museum and the Rijksmuseum (with the 'Nachtwacht') are just around the corner, same as the beautiful Concert Building and the 'I Amsterdam' sign. 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

    Fantastic hostel - had the best laugh checking in with the staff and immediately giving me information on events being held to help me interact as a solo travel. Comfortable clean dorms, spacious showers and bathrooms. Cage beneath the beds for storage helps keeps the rooms clean and tidy. Perfect location.

    Perfect location, fun atmosphere, friendly staff, zero complaints. Might not be what everyone wants based on reviews, but if you’re looking to meet fellow travelers you can’t beat their bar.

    Loved my stay at Uptown Flying Pig! I shared a 6 person room with friends, which was perfect for what we needed. The staff were very friendly and willing to help, kitchen facilities were perfect for cooking light meals and the hostel had a great vibe in the evenings. I would have liked more of a choice for breakfast, but otherwise it was a fab time. Amazing location too!

    Great hostel! Friendly staff, good breakfast (costs 4 Euro), great atmosphere. I only had 2 issues with it: 1 - it was very pricey, but that's mainly because I booked last minute on a Saturday in Amsterdam, and 2 - the bathrooms were quite small, and there weren't very many of them. Otherwise, it was great!

    I just felt bad staying in this hostel. Somebody stole my food even when it was labelled and I couldn’t use the kitchen in the morning to cook my breakfast because it opens at 1pm, which is weird for a hostel (its like they force you to buy their 3Euro breakfast). They also charge you for storing your luggage. The atmosphere is kinda rude so don’t expect to meet friends there. Overall, one of the weirdest hostels I ever stayed in.

    I've been to that very Flying Pig Hostel about 15 years ago, it's been okay back then, so when in need to stay in Amsterdam for 1 night due to the visit of a concert, we chose a 3–bed–dorm in that very Flying Pig Uptown. There had been an extremely loud noise (some malfunction on the roof, which the room was located underneath), and nobody was willing to solve that problem / refund money. We had about a total of 1 hour sleep. Staff told us that the manager will get in contact, which never hpnd.

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!
