  • Good location, but way too busy. Staff is almost always busy with check-ins to be able to talk to you. Facilities are pretty limited and you are essentially just paying for the location. Rooms are pretty small and can seem claustrophobic at times. The bar downstairs is pretty good though and has decently priced drinks and a good seating space.

  • If you're considering a different hostel, don't. I spend a little extra on the Flying Pig Downtown and it was so worth it the little I spend covered my breakfast, as theirs is included. The breakfast isn't just toast and spread, they also have fruit, eggs, coffee, tea and juice. The bar was always very lively considereing it was only for staff and guests staying st the flyin pig. Drink prices were cheap and the staff is so friendly and cool. The location is great. I felt safe there!

  • 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.
