Stayed here with 2 friends for 3 nights in August 2015. First hostel I have ever stayed at in my life so I was not sure what to expect. We had a 4 person room which did have its own bathroom which was nice although the shower floor is at the same level as the rest so the water gets... More

I'm no expect on hostels but if there is one thing I'd expect it's a clean hostel. I found flying pigs spotless! Showers and kitchen were really clean. Rooms were of a great standard too. Everything you would expect from lockers to fresh linen. The bar was really cool and affordable. Really funky atmosphere! Highly recommended.

Stayed here for three nights during an interrail trip. Welcoming atmosphere created by excellent staff. Wifi worked well in all areas of the hostel and each bed had individual plugs and lamps.

As my brother and I made our way through Europe, and various countries, with various hostels, we found ourselves comparing each and every one to the Flying Pig, our favorite of them all. Accommodations were fantastic, and location was perfect, as it was walking distance from the station. Not only an incredible social and friendly atmosphere, but it was the... More

Booked a long time in advance, initially thought it was quite expensive (€38 per night in a 14 person shared dorm). However, it is the best hostel I have stayed in to date. The location couldn't be better (5 mins to Amsterdam Centraal and 5-10 mins to Dam Square. Staff were friendly and helpful on arrival, and the hostel sells... More

We arrived in Amsterdam for the first leg of our journey across Europe and the Flying Pig Downtown was our first hostel. We were greeted by a charming Australian receptionist who promptly checked us in.

Me and a friend stayed here for the weekend, great place to lay your head and spend some time in. Literally a few minutes walk from the station so very central. Reception/bar staff were friendly and helpful with any info. Steep stairs to the room (fortunately on 1st floor) but this is common in Amsterdam. We stayed in a 4... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
