Every time I stay at the flying pig uptown I always end up doing mushrooms with strangers from all around the world haha. Stayed there last month for my second time, the vibe in this place is like no other, everyone is chilled out and easy to get on with. It's a little way from the centre so I recommend... More

When I went to the flying pig, I had never been to hostel before and I was kind of nervous because I didn’t know what to expect from it. I reached Amsterdam at 9pm and after dinner I got onto the tram and went towards the hostel. I entered the hostel at about 11 pm and was warmly greeted by... More

great place to stay with friends. Ample breakfast and helpful staff. Location is not that excellent, but reachable even by foot in 30 to 45 mins from the central station. Rooms were cleaned on a daily basis, though quilts were not changed after use, and to my knowledge not washed. None the less, it was an excellent location to stay... More

This hostel was a party hostel that's for sure! It was very fun. However the toilets an showers were a bit yuk an the rooms weren't the cleanest. Staff were okay an helped when asked but never went out of their way. The stairs can be very steep an id hate to be a guest on the 4th floor!!

The flying pig is a great little hostel in a great location. Highly recommend to anyone interested in absorbing themselves in the culture of Amsterdam. Right next door to Vondel Park it is easy to walk to anyone of the museums and sights in Amsterdam as well as many restaurant, shops and the coffee shops. The staff are extremely helpful... More

The stay was alright without greater disappointments. The rooms and facilities were clean, the breakfast was basic (toast and cereal, nothing fancy), beds and staff were alright. What we didn't like though was the very limited space of the hostel - it seems like you are running into someone or something all the time. Everything is a little too tight:... More

The Flying Pig Uptown is close enough to the red light district to enjoy everything, while being far enough away that the red light doesn't dominate the entire experience. In addition, Vondel Park is amazing for hanging out and experiencing a different side to Amsterdam. The Hostel staff was very friendly and helpful and it was easy to meet fellow... More

Nice place not too far from the centre of town, we slept in a private room with a double bed, the bed was the most comfortable bed we've had in Europe so far! Cool little bar & smoke room downstairs, standard European breakfast, kitchen and washing facilities in the hostel, friendly staff

Bagpacked Europe for 2 months, stayed in 9-10 hostels but nothing beats the flying pig uptown and even downtown. Part of the St. Christophers chain this one of the best hostels on the planet. Stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed every second of my stay. The rooms are taken care of very well and even toilets are clean. The... More
