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!

I've stayed in several hostels across Europe and the Flying Pig did not disappoint! We were here for NYE and enjoyed staying at the hostel bar. The room was very clean and bed was very comfy! Unfortunately, our planned 4 night stay was cut short due to a family emergency back in the States, and they were unable to provide... More

So I didn't know what to expect when deciding to stay at the flying pig. All I had heard and read was that it was a great experience. On returning from my travels, that is the same message I can convey to anyone and everyone. From the friendly staff that made you feel like you were staying at their own... More

I came here with a few friends and it's everything you expect from a hostel. The staff were very friendly and chilled out in the bar and smoking room with the guests. Whilst we there they had some DJ's playing in the bar and we went off with the staff into Amsterdam for a night. I had such a great... More

Sorry about the english. The place is awesome for who likes to party. Theres a bar in the hostel who provides anything that you need to have fun (except weed). Theres a very confortoble smoking place and a intimist terrace. You can smoke and relax, just dont sleep there (its a temptation). About sleeping, its nice, the rooms are clear... More

Traveling solo, I was afraid of ending up at a hostel where the people would be anti-social and I wouldn't make very many friends, especially since I was spending Christmas there. This hostel was the complete opposite. I stayed in a 16 person room, and I loved it. Ended up making a couple friends by the end of the first... More

There was a mouse in my room and I couldn't sleep all night. The rooms were veeeery dirty and smelled really bad. The bathroom is very small and is wet all the time The location is great and the breakfast is ok. Bad place to stay.

Hi there, Thank you very much for taking the effort to review your stay with us! We are very sorry to hear your experience was not what you expected. In Amsterdam there are a lot of old buildings and unfortunately mice like to visit these old buildings. We have weekly checks by pest control to keep these visits very minimum.... More
