This hostel was super fun! Everyone there was so outgoing and there was always something to do. The bottom floor never stops smelling like weed but I guess that's what you'd expect from Amsterdam. It was right next to Vondel Park which was fun to ride bikes through. The wifi only was on the bottom floor and the first floor... More

The room we stayed in was a 10 bed dorm which was nice, bright and spacious. The hostel is very clean, nice bar and good drink deals. The breakfast is really good with cereals, toast, eggs, fruit, coffee etc. If I was coming back again I would stay downtown, uptown is opposite vondellpark but the clubs/ bars/ tourist attractions/ train...

Recently stayed at the Flying Pig Uptown and had a blast- the staff were friendly, the atmosphere in the bar was great and the rooms were relatively clean. TOO MANY STAIRS THOUGH- don't bring a heavy suitcase..

The flying pig uptown has a good location, right next to Vondelpark and walkable to all the main attractions. Our room was clean but small, and very hot, we couldn't leave the window open due to Mosquitos. The bar has cheap drinks but is small and dark, not an overly inviting place to hang out and often you can't get... More

We booked this bevause we stayed at St Christophers Inn, Berlin which was great. We checked with them on availability for Amsterdam, heard it was simillar vibe, we were very wrong. Thought we booked for two nights, came back to see we'd been checked out with other people checked in while our stuff was still upstairs, turns out it was... More

Excellent sightseeing location - less than 15 mins walk to Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, StedelijkMuseum, and the vast greenery of Museumplein. Staff are decent and generally helpful, but not really warm and friendly because they look busy all the time. I stayed in a 10-men dorm. Beds were comfy and clean, but the underbed metallic lockers sounded like they needed... More

We stayed at the Flying Pig Uptown for three nights - one night in a shared dorm and two nights in private double room with ensuite. As this was one of my first hostel stays, I have waited until later in my trip to review so I could compare it with others. Knowing what I know now, I would have... More

The hostel is well located, but it has lot of sairs!!! The bed is ok, the restrooms are fine. But the roommates are a little unpolite, they turn on the lights in the middle of the night. If you want to party the entire night, this is perfect for you. But if yoy have the intention of have a night... More

You really cannot beat the location of this hostel, opposite Vondel Park and only a short 5min walk to the casino and canal area of Amsterdam. I stayed in a 12 bed dorm that was located on the top floor,,,, this is where the problems begin.... now when I say an "excessive amount of stairs" I am putting it nicely!... More

Stayed here with a few friends in October - very high quality boutique hostel - rooms are lovely and clean, and with funky decorations. All the beds were really comfy with what seemed like brand new sheets and blankets. The brekky was awesome - wholemeal toast and boiled eggs are a rarity when it comes to free hostel brekky and...
