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 5 EUR. We advise you to bring your own towel, but if you have forgotten it, you can rent one for €2. Please make sure to return the towel after use.
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 a delicious continental breakfast buffet available every morning for just €8 a day (€7 if booked on check-in) which can be purchased at reception on arrival.
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 Experience or have a wild night out in the pop temple Paradiso, within crawling-home distance.
We're open 24 hours with night security and no curfews or lockout. Access is by keycard.
