It is one of the few hostel who only allowed customers inside the hostel building which is good but with so many guys get stoned and drunk until late in the morning it will only take one unresonable guy to turn the place into nightmare..they should seriously consider to put a real bouncer at the scene just to make it...

Overall this hostel was good in terms of hygiene, cost, location. The atmosphere was great! People there are very friendly. However because smoking was welcomed in the hostel whenever i had a shower the fumes would come through and i felt dirtier having a shower. Its not really a big deal, i now just look back and laugh and think... More

Hello! Thank you very much for leaving this nice review! We really appreciate it. We are sorry to hear about the smell of smoke in the shower! This is very unusual, since smoking is only allowed in the designated smoking room down stairs next to the bar. But thanks for letting us know, we are going to check this out!... More

Crazy atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff, njami breakfast, good beds, clean toilets, lots of people chilling and having fun. I think that when you travel and come somewhere where you feel almost like at home, that is something that will mark your trip. And it's Netherlands, people are so happy and relaxed, could be the weed . haha. No more... More

We stayed at the flying Pig Uptown for 4 nights and it was a wonderful stay. From the checking procedure to our check-out the staff was very kind and helpful. It seems to have a special atmosphere in this hostel, from the receptionists, the bartenders to the ones who clean bathrooms and do the beds everyone seemed to be happy... More

Needs to be a smoking room to accommodate those on the top floor. Good atmosphere nice staff. Breakfast is dissapointing but all round not bad considering price. Location is good very central and was very clean

The best part about this hostel is the social aspect. Everyone enjoys meeting each other and sitting with people they don't know, etc. The smoking room is a fun room where people were playing their guitars. It was loud both nights I was there with people in the hallways and talking. Bathrooms are tiny, but the wifi is pretty good.... More

The Flying Pig Uptown is in a great location; right by Vondel Park and not too far from the centre/ other attractions so that you can simply walk to all locations, or cycle.. everyone loves to cycle. The hostel itself is modern and clean with very friendly and caring staff. On the first night of arrival I got a bit... More

I went there for a 3 days conference, and i really enjoyed my time in Amsterdam thanks to this hostel. Rooms are nice and convenient, the price is low, the smoking room is the best place to make friends and smoke pot with nice people, the breakfast is included and really fulfilled my morning needs. I highly recommend this place... More
