Awesome atmosphere as soon as you walk through the door! Love the fact there is double bunk beds, perfect for couples and friends. Location is spot on! Feel like a local being right next to Vondelpark. The bar does great drink deals as well as brekky in the morning. Perfect place to start your day getting info from the bartenders... More

Just stayed here for 2 nights, the rooms were clean and comfortable, showers hot, great atmosphere in the bar and smoking area, staff very welcoming and helpful. It's in a good location, easy to get around.

This is my second time staying at the Flying Pig Uptown. The last time I stayed a quick overnight layover and remember having a very pleasant experience so decided to come back. This hostel is in an ideal location right by many restaurants and nightlife. Right across is the wonderful Vondelpark. Museumplein is also a very short walk away. The... More

One of the better hostels I've stayed in, free continental breakfast, friendly and knowledgeable staff (ask them about the area!) and the place itself has some nice charm to it. Prices for the room were good, towels could be rented for ~€3, and padlocks could be purchased to keep belongings safe. I find the uptown hostel to be preferable to... More

The staff here are some of the friendliest and most helpful people Ive encountered in Europe. This uptown hostel is in a great location- just minutes walk from Van Gogh and Rijks mueseum/i amsterdam sign. There are various excellent coffee shops nearby to buy and smoke marijuana. I enjoyed the smoking room at the hostel for hanging out and getting... More

Great location, awesome staff .....in a beautiful city! I really enjoyed my 2 nights at this hostel and I highly recommend it for others as well. Since I travelled in February 2015 the price was low which was a bonus for me ! Thanks :-)

We Stayed at Flying Pig Uptown for my 18th Birthday weekend and the Hostel definitely contributed largely to making our Amsterdam experience unforgettable. What i loved about the hostel was the warm, pleasant, laid-back staff, the clean, comfy rooms and the most enjoyable part of the Hostel experience was hanging out in the smokers room meeting fellow friendly travellers.

I stayed at the Flying Pig Uptown for 5 days I was happy for what you got for the money; the staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are decent and the location is great to get to all of the main attractions of Amsterdam, but still be far enough away to be a little more peaceful. The stairs are... More

This hostel is good for people who don't want the seedier aspects of Amsterdam right on their doorstep - it is located at the other end of town with the museums and culture, plus Vondel Park is just across the road. The hostel was nice enough and breakfast was good enough, but nothing was totally outstanding.

I was in the Flying Pig for about three days. Good bedrooms, with a lot of space and individual lockers. The location is good, but the downtown is a little closer to everything. They have good breakfast, staff is very nice and everything is very clean. The showers are small and sometimes it was too cold in there, but it... More
