I had never stayed in a hostel before and my experience has definitely changed my view on hostels. I didn't know what to expect and I was pleasantly surprised. In ways it is better than staying in a hotel because you get a kitchen and a fridge to cook your own food!! Saves a lot of money. Beds are not... More

Great place for the wanderer. Meet new people from many countries, form lifelong friendships. Breakfast is frugal, but the staff is courteous and friendly. Young vibe, decent smoking area and bar. Rooms are clean, so are the WCs and showers. Great place for a short stay (if you're under 35!)

I loved my stay at the flying pig uptown in Amsterdam. The atmosphere, from the time you get into the door, until the time you get to your bed, screams "Amsterdam" to you, and is really a fun place if you're travelling with a group of people who are looking for a good time. They have a bar downstairs, and... More

The staff is friendly there, the bathrooms and showers are clean, toilets are clean but small . did not like that you might take a shared double bed if you booked 2 at the same time. some rooms had bad ventilation and was...

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...
