Really chill vibe. Smoking room is nice but prepare for your lungs to explode as ventilation isn't great. Beds are extremely comfortable and the location was absolutely perfect, with leidseplein 5 minutes up the street away

Hi There, Thank you for your feedback, we are extremely disappointed to see your stay with us was not as you had expected :( Indeed we do have a bar downstairs open until 3am, as well as aa 24 hour smoking room, which means it can be busy in our common areas at night.

I loved this hostel. The staff are friendly and informative. The reception is 24hours, the free breakfast is really decent. There is a bar. They serve food. The rooms are super clean and spacious. The location is right by the museums and literally opposite vondelpark. The kitchen always seems to be clean and not too busy. The showers are AMAZING... More

My BF and I are from Toronto, Canada and stayed in the flying pig uptown hostel for 5 nights and had a great stay overall. This was my first time in a hostel and was very hesitant initially but I tried keeping an open mind with lower expectations. The stay was great in value and honestly reminded me of university/college... More

Perfect. Absolutely. The staff, the guests and the facilities were arguably BEST hostels I've visited on my many years of travels. It's more like a home away from home than a "hostel" Will be returning!

I stayed in the downtown pig night before and this was an improvement for sure! About 15 minutes from the Leidseplein (and tram 1,2 or 5 from the station at 3euro for 1 hour of journeys, pay driver on tram) it sits opposite the start of Vondlepark in a lovely location away from all the noise. This makes it a... More

Close enough to walk to almost everything; this hostel is very clean, friendly and staff is super helpful in finding off the map places to visit. Near the museum square and within a short walk to bus stops, this is a place I will definitely come back to. The beds were soft and with down filled comforters and pillows it... More

I've stayed in plenty hostels and this is the best so far, simply because of the staff.

Neighborhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
