  • Awesome location, great staff, great free breakfast, BUT no laundry on site (I was told there is a laundromat nearby where for approx EUR10 they will do it for you) so that's the only potential downside.

  • Flying Pig truly is a youth hostel with a bar, live music, chatting, smoking room, shared toilet and bathroom. A very professional staff, a good location (less than 7 minutes from Amsterdam Centraal).

  • I would recommend anyone going to Amsterdam to stay at this hostel. It's easily one of the best I've stayed at, in my Europe trip. The atmosphere is amazing, you don't feel the need to go out because the hostel itself is so happening. The staff is very friendly as well. The rooms are good, not disappointing at all. Overall a good experience. I know this is my go to place in Amsterdam without any second thoughts.

  • Amazing hostel, where you can meet great people, including staff! Nice kitchen, great breakfasts, but not so clean rooms and toilets. And you really need a shelf or something in showers!
