We stayed in this hostel in May. I generally don't prefer to stay in hostels because of an unpleasant experience in the past but this hostel really changed my opinion. The hostel rooms were clean and well maintained, the bathrooms were clean and the staff was really helpful! The location was also quite convenient. I would definitely recommend you to... More

My travel buddy and I had a fantastic stay at the Flying Pig Uptown. The Hostel is right next to Vondelpark, meaning it is slightly out of the center of the city, but within 15 minute walk or 10 minute tram ride to all attractions. The hostel is only a 5 minute walk from the Rijks and Van Gogh Museums.... More

Pros: - Good location - walking distance to all the big tourist sites (anywhere from a few minutes to the "I Amsterdam" sign to 30 min for the Anne Frank House). - Able to book excursions through the hostel (bike tour, walking tours, Heineken tour, etc) - Lockers underneath the beds for your luggage and ones in the hallway available...

It is the perfect place for young people looking to meet other travelers. It has a awesome atmosphere, the staff is friendly, the rooms are nice (altough just some rooms have aircon), the breakfast is ok and location is good as well. To get to the Vondelpark you just need to cross the street and there are trams and bus... More

Stayed for 2 nights at the hostel and it was just fun! The staff around the hostel was friendly and cheerful. Booked the 14 dorm and it was alright. Facilities were good -- they have their own smoking room where you can smoke anything in it. It does offer a basic breakfast which was quite good. It was next to... More

If you're planning on backpacking through Amsterdam, or coming here on a break/holiday, then I cannot recommend the Flying Pig hostel enough. You get free breakfast, lovely and friendly staff and a great location, literally next to Vondelpark. We had a great time in Amsterdam, spending a lot of it in the hostel. The only qualm I have is that... More

Really fun hostel which always has loads going on. The staff were really helpful and place was busy but clean. Each bed had a draw underneath and a little locker. Good breakfast too and lots of trips possible from the hostel. It's a bit of a walk into town but the city is safe and pretty so not the end... More

I probably won't ever be back to this particular hostel again, but the atmosphere of it was very cool! The bathrooms, showers, and bedrooms are very small. We always felt like we were in each other's way. The staff was nice and helpful, they have good drink specials as well. Everything about the hostel is great other than the rooms,... More

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighborhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
