This hostel's proximity to the Rijksmuseum makes it really easy to find when you're coming back from the centre of town. The facilities were clean, the breakfast was basic but about what you expect from a hostel and the bar is small but cosy. There are no lifts in this old building so ask for a dorm on the first...

After a four night stay, I left really loving this hostel. My favorite thing about it was the staff, which was really laid back but also incredibly helpful. I have had hostel experiences where there are lots of rules and not a lot of flexibility. Here there was always someone at the front desk that was on-point and knew what... More

This was the first hostel I'd ever stayed in and I wouldn't hesitate to come back. Friendly staff who put on an open mic night on our first night there, helped every one get to know one another. Reasonably priced drinks & free breakfast. There's a smoking room at the back of the hostel into which you can print goods... More

I was told it was the place i should stay in amsterdam. The hostel was good, but no special thing, and quite far if you want to walk downtown, specially since public transport isnt that cheap. In conclusion, not a bad place, but you can find better for the price

Really fun place. In hotel smoking room. location good but not great. double room on 3rd floor facing street was very quiet, but more than some nice, boutique hotels. Across the street from a nice park.

A group of three of us stayed three nights here. I stayed in the Flying Pig Uptown in 2011 and had suggested the flying pig again. I am glad I did. We stayed in a three bed dorm. Blankets and pillows were comfy and warm. Beds were a tady older and sqeaky, but still totally comfortable! Room was very clean.... More

The atmosphere and location of this hostel is nice, but the rooms did not seem as clean as I'd like, the bathrooms were very outdated, and the food was not very good. However, the wifi worked well, the staff was friendly, and it was easy to find this hostel.

It's the second time I have stayed at this hostel. The first one was with friends a couple of years ago and this was was with my boyfriend. Amsterdam is so expensive we couldn't afford something better. We stayed from Sunday to Tuesday so I knew it wouldn't be so crowded or noisy as normally. We stayed at a4-bed room... More
