The hostel is in a great location with helpful staff, a nice bar, and clean rooms. Everyone is friendly and its a great place to hangout. However, My friend and I did not have a great stay because all the other members of our room were on mushrooms and were extremely disruptive. I have heard about that happening to other... More

Flying Pig Downtown is that hostel that feels like you're coming home when you walk in the door. The reception and staff in general are friendly and always willing to help. They even let me hang out in the bar long after check-out while I waited for an afternoon train. I've stayed there on several occasions now and in all... More

Stayed here for one night in the 32 bed room. Excellent place, great wifi, showers and restrooms were clean. Place to smoke outside or inside, they have a bar. Excellent employees, they printed out boarding passes for free. Only issue was an intoxicated guest in our room, who was throwing up in the room, and other people who kept slamming... More

This is a Hostel and a nice one! People who expect their beds to be cleaned everyday - This is not for you. It is located centrally. 5 minutes walk from the Railway Station and most of the attractions in amsterdam are very closeby..... The Coffee shop is great and so is the Bar. The Bar is open till 2...

I stopped here on a backpacking trip. I LOVED my stay. The hostel has a bar downstairs which is a great meeting area without even having to go anywhere. You can meet some friends before you take off to explore! The hostel is located right in the heart of a bunch of shops and eateries. I barely walked more than... More

Fantastic Hostel, good prices for European stay as well. Clean, friendly, fun, perfect location, great staff. I don't have any negatives! :-D There is a smoking room 24hr which makes a huge difference. It couldn't be situated any better, i'm a frequent visitor to Dam and first time in this particular one, but sure won't be the last!

I booked here after reading some reviews and needless to say, was not in the least bit dissapointed. The night I got there I immediately made friends with the other travellers in my dorm and we headed out to a coffeeshop. Instead of heading out to a bar we just went back to the hostel to drink instead, since the... More

We really enjoyed our time at Flying Pig! Make sure to go to the Downtown location - it is conveniently located next to everything we wanted to go and do! The smoking room is very convenient, and all of their drink specials are out of this world!
