“Love this place, stay here!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

I loved The Flying Pig. The only bad thing I can say is that it was fully booked the first day we were here so we only got to stay here three nights! The room was good; the bathrooms were clean. The location is good- near everything (although sometimes the streets are difficult to navigate- get a good map).

The best part about this hostel is the smoking room and the downstairs bar. We loved this place so much, we vouched to stay in the smoking room for one full day (and we did!). At about 4 am some musicians came down and we sang and played with them and the reception even joined in. GREAT vibe, great hostel. If you don't stay here in Amsterdam, you're missing out!!

An awesome place ! Nice staff, acommodation, simple and good breakfast and a central localization. The climate it's something fantastic, looks like a english pub. It's a great place to sleep, to rock and fly !

Friendly staff from the moment you walk in the door. Fun, lively atmosphere at the bar and the smoking room was great and chilled and comfortable. The rooms where basically as clean as a hostel gets. Great lockers under your bed.. Although we had a sligh mishap with a mouse the staff brought the cat straight up and it was gone. Unlike a lot of places in Amsterdam has an elevator. Which is great for when you have suitcases with you! The breakfast was good too. All over fantastic and I would go back a million times if I could:) HIGHLY RECOMMEND

We really enjoyed our stay at this hostel. The location was good, and the price was decent considering that Amsterdam is an expensive city to stay in. The rooms were good and clean with an ensuite bathroom and spacious lockers. The staff were always friendly and the hostel itself had a good atmosphere.

The free breakfasts were a definite positive, as was access to the communal kitchen. Wifi was restricted to the communal areas which got a bit annoying, but overall was fine.

We were there for the annual pub quiz (and even managed to win a prize) which was great fun - we'd definitely recommend doing this more often!

This is a huge party hostel. I like how they gave me a free beer while i was waiting to checked in because the messed up my reservation. The common areas are nice but the dorm is so crowded, way to much people in one room. If you want to experience the culture of Amsterdam this place might not be the best but if you want to have a great time and remember half of it stay a couple nights here.

I have been to Flying Pig numerous times over the past few years, and I can say it is the most fun hostel I have stayed at in Europe. The common areas make it easy to meet fellow travelers. The bar is not expensive, and the rooms are clean.
Thanks Flying Pig for making my stays with you such memorable experiences.

Very good location in the heart of city made it easy to walk to the train station and also walking distance to good bars and restaurants. Breakfast wasn't anything special so i would recommend going out for it.
