The best hostel i have stayed at in Amsterdam. The location is brilliant in the middle of Amsterdam's action and the security is brilliantly handled. The bar has some of the cheapest prices in Amsterdam and the smoking room is fantastic. The showers and bedrooms are pretty clean and the 32 man dorm is a little noisy, but what do... More

Went to this hostel for a university swimming tour. Absolutely perfect. They put us all in the rooms with just ourselves, probably for other people's benefit, but still! The rooms give you everything you need, comfy beds, plug socket and light for each bed, powerful and warm shower. The only negatives I could give the rooms is that you could... More

I went to Amsterdam for a couple of days and I stayed here and they were very accommodating great fast service, and they are always there if you need anything. Everyone respects each other's space which is great if you are looking to let your thoughts ramble. I will go back there next time I am in Amsterdam.

Flying Pig is a hostel at the heart of Amsterdam . It's vert close to Central Station and Dam Square.You can easily walk to main attractions and use subway if necessary. The stuff are very friendly. Toilets,showers and rooms are clean.Prices are acceptable for a hostel in that location.Totally recommended

The Flying Pig is everything it promises to be and more. I stayed in a 10 bed dorm and all of my "roommates" were delightful. The only thing to pick on are the lockers under the beds which tend to make noises like there is a (flying) pig stuck in a fence:). The staff was amazing, they took time to... More

Hi there, Thank you so much for your nice and very funny review. It is always great to hear people enjoy their time at the Pig but it is absolute awesome to read that it felt like staying at a friends house :D We are working very hard on getting new (and less noisy) lockers in all our rooms.

GO WITH FRIENDS GO WITH FRIENDS GO WITH FRIENDS. I am an extremely successful 20 year old entrepreneur who travels constantly, but due to my young age, none of my companions have the ability to afford any of the places I go to. The flying pig is for THE HOMIES. Don't do the 5 star resorts or 4 star hotels...... More

Just book it!!!!!!! I felt at home, and it was really sad to leave such a wonderfull place. The staff were friendly, easy going and although smoking is allowed on the smoking room, people act very respectfully (been there for 7 days) The flying pig downtown is the main reason i want to go to Amsterdam for the third time.
