The place offers a lot of activities for tourists and solo travelers. It's all young people so you'll definitely have fun. The rooms are decent size- they look kind of dingy but it goes with the Amsterdam and hostel feel so no worries. Overall great place I highly recommend :) Also location is great!

Location is excellent! We stayed in an 12 bed bunk room in a queen bunk. It was nice and comfortable. No air con so room got super hot as could only open one window and it had to be propped up with a stick to keep open. Showers had excellent pressure, bathrooms were reasonably clean. We were on the first... More

Great location in Amsterdam! I was in a dorm with 2 single bed bunks and 1 double bed bunk. My partner and I shared the double bed and there was plenty of space for both. The room is maybe slightly small but if everyone keeps tidy it's fine. There were block out curtains in the room which was nice and... More

First of all, keep in mind that this is a hostel for people who like this kind of place and accommodations! I just love it! It's full of life, laughts and probably new friends!

This hostel is in an old building so there are a lot of steep stairs and you will end up in odd positions in some of the bathrooms. But it has a nice feel to it and is next to a huge park. The hostel has a kitchen and free breakfast! I had to change rooms during my stay which... More

We stayed in a queen dorm bunk. Was surprisingly very comfortable! Plenty of showers on our floor & decent free breakfast. Would stay again. A little far from central station. About 40min walk. But there is a tram that can take you for about 2.50€.

We started our trip in Amsterdam so the flying pig was the first hostel we had ever stayed at. The staff at reception was incredible when we showed up. They were very laid back and friendly, and they have thought of absolutely everything to make things comfortable for you. They have free breakfast which was very basic but had everything... More

Decent place to stay, we stayed in a room of 10 was quite a big room with a sink in. Good secure lockers under the beds take your own lock though.

Okay so Amsterdam wasn't my thing and the hostel didn't really have a lot of "my people" but the staff are soooo helpful and friendly and super awesome. The place is clean and the beds are semi comfortable. Just be prepared for the stairs but that cant be helped in Amsterdam. Great Location

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.
