Located very near to the train station, red light district and a lot of coffee shops. Rooms are clean and tidy, but just very expensive. I paid £30 for a room in a 15 person dorm. Apart from the price, the hostel is ideal for groups of travellers and also for lone travellers, very good hostel.

Stayed in a private room- easily the best room we've stayed in so far on this trip! Would definitely recommend! Great location close to everything and the staff were all very helpful! Cool little bar area with good drink specials etc! Thanks

A few years ago when I was 18 interrailing around Europe this hostel would have been out of my budget - to be fair though most hostels in Amsterdam aren't the cheapest - but this January some friends and I visited the Flying Pig and fell in love with it. So much so that we came back again last week... More

Flying pig is very centrally located; it's less than 5 minutes to dam square by walking. The hostel provides a decent breakfast in the morning and a bar with good prices. I stayed in a 32 person room, which means people are constantly coming in and out at all times of the day. There are sinks close to the beds... More

The rooms showers and bathrooms were clean and comfortable. It's easy to meet people at the bar downstairs for a night out. The staff is friendly and helpful. If you book a room with a bunch of people, be sure to wear earplugs. The only minor downside is that the wifi doesn't reach the dorm rooms.

The best part of The Flying Pig was definitely the staff! They were very friendly and extremely helpful! We arrived at 9:30am and they were very accommodating. The atmosphere of the hostel was also very cool and it gives you the real Amsterdam experience. The smoking room off the main room made the place smell a little, but you are... More
