If you're looking for a fun hostel to stay in that is close to everything, then this is it! It's about a 7 minute walk to the train station, and about the same distance to Dam Square. Red Light District is a couple streets over. Anne Frank is a 15 minute walk at the most. Lots of coffeeshops around, and... More

I cannot not mention the amazing location this hostel has. Very central and a few steps away from everything you need to see. The hostel is for travellers in their 20s with an amazing service at the reception which is also a bar. Overall my first experience in a hostel was a very good one. We were 8 friends sharing...

We had our own shower and toilet in the room, very handy. Room and bathroom were both extremely clean. We were there in the middle of winter and the... More

We spent one night only at this hostel , I loved the cool and hippy environment of it . There's a cat in the lobby lurking around , I guess it is always High , since you can smoke pot in the lobby. Room decor was what I liked, modern and gave me a feeling I was in a submarine... More

Second stay in the Pig and enjoyed as much as the first. Stayed for 3 nights over the weekend and had a great time. Managed to make it down in time for breakfast this time too and was pleasantly surprised by the choice. Staff are always great although one receptionist confusingly told my friend he wasn't allowed back in after... More

This place was great from the moment I walked in the door, The staff were friendly, The WIFI worked well, breakfast was included and it was in such a great location. The smoking room was a hit and there was always someone friendly to chat to in the bar or smoking area! You can't beat this hostel!

Definitely worthy of the reputation, Flying Pigs made us feel right at home. Fantastic breakfast, amenities and location! We made many friends in the hostel and the staff were beyond friendly. The bar isn't as big and happening as St Christopher's so don't expect a club feel in Flying Pigs, would suggest you head out instead!

I stayed 5 days for the new year's eve and it was great! Breakfast was full of different foods, the smoking room was awesome with pillows to sit more comfortably and the rooms were really clean. The girls at the reception were very nice and helpful; they gave us some advice to enjoy the city. I really loved it!
