Just a short walk away from Amsterdam Centraal. Fantastic bar that goes on into the wee hours of the morning. Friendly staff. Beds are great too. Only thing is it can get a bit noisy in the larger dorms that house 18 to 32 but I guess that part and parcel of hostel life. Stayed just one night but will... More

The Best Place By Far to stay in Amsterdam! There was such an incredible vibe the second we walked into the hostel. Staff were extremely helpful and polite and the location is perfect. Myself and a friend of mine stayed in the hostel while another 2 of our friends stayed in a 4* hotel down the road and they were... More

The flying pig downtown is a party hostel for sure.. My friend and I stayed for 3 nights and didn't mind our experience. We weren't there to party into dawn so catching some quality shut eye was tricky at the Pig (we were aware of this reality). Stayed in the 18 person dorm and the 32 person dorm; we struggled...

The pig's staff is just the best! Happy and helpful people! The rooms were very clean and as the hostel has a bar besides the reception the place is always on party which allows you to make new friends in case you are travelling alone as I was.

Its a basic hostel with lazy cleaners but it is good fun if you have the right friends and attitude. Its a young people's place and has a great location. I stayed here several times over the years, the dutch full time receptionists have always been lovely. I think the downtown is much better for newbies and the single rooms... More

This hostel was a lot of fun for a weekend! There are plenty of people to meet, and with a bar downstairs, it is easy to make new friends. Great atmosphere and location. Be prepared for the "youth hostel" atmosphere... it's not for everyone, but if you are looking for a party, this is the place to be.

I recommend this hostel for anyone that wants to visit Amsterdam. The location is great, you can find lots of transports to the other points of the city and it is next to the Rijskmuseum. The Flying Pig has a great ambiance, people are really warming and you can see their effort in making sure that everything is ok for... More

I stayed at the hostel for one night and it cost about 40€. The atmosphere in the room was a little uncomfortable. I've never known a hostel to have queen beds in the rooms, but lo and behold a naked sleeping couple upon arrival. The queen bed atmosphere had people paired off, so it didn't have the typical hostel spirit... More
