Hostelworld says

Hostelworld guests at Flying Pig Downtown frequently comment on the hostel's high standard of cleanliness as well as their staff, who one of our visitors described as "adorable, very friendly, talkative, helpful, and always in a good mood." We like this hostel's location in a central area of Amsterdam, about ten minutes from the Centraal Station – "which was easy to get to from the airport," making it the "perfect way to experience everything Amsterdam has to offer." Reviewers tell us this is a good place to meet fellow travelers as there are usually "people hanging out at the bar, playing pool, or socializing."

*DO NOT STAY HERE- PLEASE READ* Firstly, staff are extremely rude. I was mistakenly given a wrong bed number and was forced to move from my bed with no explanation or even apology (this also happened to another person in my room at 5am in the morning). Also, came back one day to an additional double mattress being added to the room so that they cram as many people in the room as possible (in an already 14 bed dorm). Staff would not even let me fill up my water bottle WITH WATER in the kitchen

Beds aren’t the best for a tall person but they’re comfortable! Curtains on the bed would be lovely. The staff are really great. They are friendly and helpful and just legends in general. It’s a big hostel with lots of levels and rooms. Bar is vibing and some cheap options for drinks. The breakfast wasn’t worth €7 in my opinion but I guess it is in the middle of Amsterdam so one of the cheaper options available?

I was less than impressed. It gave me Spring Break vibes. The fellow guests were great, and the staff were welcoming. Breakfast was served 30 minutes late every morning I was there, which made my itinerary for the day rushed. The outlets in the room didn't work, and there weren't enough plugs in common spaces. The shower facilities didn't provide soap like other hostels. Locks and Towels came at an extra charge.
