Great hostel in a great location. The only public transport we required was to and from the station, and only because we had large bags otherwise everything is in walking distance from the hostel. The communal area is well set out and the free breakfast in the morning has great options and served for a long time. The staff were... More

Me and my boyfriend had a lovely time here, the staff were so helpful and friendly. The breakfast was good( included in the room rate) and the bar is very well priced. My only fault would be the rooms were roasting (but that was due to the gorgeous weather) the staff offered us fans during the night which was great.... More

Great location, around the corner and walking distance to mostly everything. Best staff easily from all hostels ive stayed at. Very friendly, very helpful always up for a chat. Common area isnt the greatest and there are thousands and thousands of stairs!

Stayed at this epic Hostel summer 2008. We found it through a Hostel site incl. the most popular Hostels of Europe. We stayed in a 8-mans Dormitory. The Flying pig Uptown has a bar where you also could get breakfast in the morning. Recommend trying out the "bucket drink" were you are served a pink bucket with 3-4 straws in... More

Stayed a few nights at the Flying Pig. Reasonably priced and great location (Van Gogh Mueseum just around the corner). WiFi is strong throughout the hostel. The stairs are a bit of effort if you have a bit of luggage. Staff are happy to help with any questions/information.

Location was easy to get to and close to Vondel Park. Staff were really friendly and helpful, we had a slight card issue whilst in Amsterdam and they let us order take out to the hostel. We were in a 12 bed dorm but it was very cramped and didn't have near enough room for 12 people to move around... More

Right next to an open park, the large windows allow for a fresh Amsterdam breeze to circulate the room. No elevators, so 5 minutes of inconvenience carrying bags up the stairs, no problems. Friendly, cool staff. Reasonably priced bar and sections for smoking. Very cool vibe.

We were 3 20-something's staying at this hostel and I would say it was OK. Reception was super nice! The price was a little steep considering we also had to pay for towels and locks. We stayed in an 8 person room and the guests were constantly filtering in and out even though we were only there for 4 days.... More

I have stayed at the flying pig uptown a few years ago and it's a great cheap place to stay and very good location. My only concern on this trip is that me and my friend both came up with bites all over our arms and backs, we assumed this must be mosquito bites however after the second night my... More
