  • The bar downstairs and the anoking area are cool. The staff is super helpful. Bathrooms are super tint and there is barely any mirroirs. Its pretty far from dowtown amd the red ligjt distrcit (walking distance 35mins) but its super close by tram (5-7mins). BUT it’s super close to all the mueseum, there are clubs and bars in the area and lots of food and coffee shop !

  • This is the coolest hostel. They have/ provide everything you would need. Safe, fun atmosphere, bar inside with great prices and smoking room, kitchen, laundry, extra lockers, all maps and flyers for all information you would need to get around/have a good time in Amsterdam/get to the airport/etc. Also great, quiet area in walking distance of lots of things to do.

  • The shared rooms are quite small.. it was pretty hard to walk around with all the luggage on the floor... Also, you have to go upstairs for the rooms, what is hard when you have big luggage(which was our case). The breakfast is good enough, the staff is very friendly and helpful and the late bar/smoking area has a very nice atmosphere. The lockers with password instead of keys are very handy. Good option, after all.

  • Although the hostel was kinda messy because it was still renovating, I truly enjoyed the vibes & my stays. Not only that you met some of the most awesome folks work here who also happen to be avid travelers (special shout-outs to Sara & Aaron), but you get to enjoy the lovely Vondel Park right beside the hostel. Here's a tip though - ask to stay on the ground floor if you can.

  • Here's my first night staying at Uptown Flying Pig: the staff & location were just as wonderful as my other review suggested; however, because I was living on the 4th floor, I had to climb all the way up & down repeatedly with all my luggage. Also, you have to share the toilets/washrooms with the entire floor, which was very annoying. Overall, this is one of my MOST pleasant stay in Amsterdam thanks to the friendly staff, but I just found the facilities inconvenient.
