We had a great 3 night break at the Flying Pig; it's in a great location and the staff were brillaint. We are an 'older' couple (I am 60 and the wife a bit younger) and we were concerned that we were too old to stay at a Hostel; we needn't have worried they really made us welcome. We stayed in the Double Ensuite and although very small the bed was really comfy and the room warm and cozy. We diddn't eat at the Pig (hence the 'average' score of 3) as there was plenty of good places to eat out in the close vicinity. We would definitely come back again on our next visit to Amsterdam.
Hello! Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay! We are pleased to hear that you appreciated our central location and staff friendliness! Great that you found your room warm and cosy and would return! We look forward to seeing you again! The piggies
Probably one of the best hostels I've stayed at. You need to have a key card to get in so I always felt very safe. You walk straight into the bar so you feel welcome from the get go. All of the staff were amazing and super friendly. A lot of them hung around after their shifts so it was easy to sit down and have a drink with them. Excellent kitchen facilities. Loads of communal areas where you could meet people. I stayed in an 18 bed dorm but there was plenty of space. They have activities on every night so there was always something to do and someway to meet people. Best thing was the smoking room. So good to be able to have a smoke, meet people and then crash when you were done! When I come back to Amsterdam I'll be staying here again!

Centrally located hostel with excellent staff!”
The common shower facilities were excellent and were diligently kept clean by the staffs. Staffs are well-versed in English and were able to advise us accordingly on the attractions in Amsterdam.
Hi there! Thank you for your comments! We are pleased to hear that you found our facilities excellent and clean! We wish you happy travels! The piggies
Best hostel in Town”
I will definitely come back here. Staff were so nice and help me out a lot and it's in the center of the downtown. Party is just inside the hostel. Near to everywhere and I really love my stay. I will recommend this hostel.
Hi there! Thank you so much for commenting on your stay! We are thrilled to be the best hostel in town and that our staff were on hand to help with all of your questions :) Thanks for recommending us! ;) We hope to see you again! The piggies

Fantastic hostel in great location”
I love this hostel. It's always clean, the staff is friendly, and you can't beat the location. The breakfast included is better than the breakfast at 85% of hostels around the world. The bar and common area downstairs is great for meeting people. I've stayed here twice over the past ten years and I always meet amazing people. :)
Hi there! Thank you for your lovely comments! We are thrilled to hear that you love us and always find us clean! :) Great that you appreciate our free breakfast and had time to chill out in our common bar and smoking room areas! We are happy to hear you are a repeat piggie! Thank you for your loyalty :) We look forward to seeing you next time! Happy travels! The piggies
Great Party Hostel”
The stay is comfortable for the price, its a backpackers hostel. There are facilities like lockers in the common area and safe at the front desk. Main thing about this hostel is that the people you meet, its a mini party central. Don't expect TVs or safe in the room, the bunk beds have a small drawer under. Bring your own locks if you want to use these lockers under the beds, they are somewhat sturdy. You can get locks there too but they are the normal usual brass locks. The common area is where you'll be most of the time and it is comfortable. So for the money value, the ability to mingle and meet people, party the night away, this is the place to be.
Hello! Thanks for your review! We are pleased to hear that you found us comfortable and safe! Indeed you require a padlock for under your bed, but we sell them at reception for €3.50 if you forgot one ;) Thanks again! The piggies
Good place to meet new friends!”
It was easy to find the hostel, and the staff were helpful when I asked for directions to get to attractions. Breakfast is a good spread, and the room is cleaned daily.
Hi ther! Thank you for your comments! We are pleased that you found our free breakfast satisfying and appreciated our room cleanliness! Happy Travels! The piggies
Great location, easy access to everything”
Location is very central to most of the shopping and eating areas. Also a quick 10 min walk to the train station where you can hop on and get to the airport quickly. Hostel is clean and breakfast was great.
Hi there! Thank you so much for your comments! We are pleased to hear that you appreciated our central location for visiting the city! Great that you also found us clean and with a good breakfast :) We hope to see you again! The Piggies
Nice hostel! ”
It was a amazing hostel. It's in the center of the city and you have a lot of things to do there! If you are traveling solo you can meet a lot of nice people there in the bar! I really enjoy staying there!
Hey Hey! Wow! Thank you for your kind words! We love to hear what an amazing hostel you found us ;) Great to hear how much you enjoyed staying here! We enjoyed having you :) We hope to see you next time! The piggies
Staff were very nice and helpful. Location of the hostel was perfect. Center and walking distance to everything. Would recommend this hostel to everyone on a budget or not.
Hey there! Thank you for your review! We are thrilled to hear that you found our staff nice and our central location helped you to see the city easily :) We hope to see you again! The piggies
Clean hostel but overrated”
I regretted staying here the moment I checked in. This hostel was about 20€ more than other hostels around the area but I stayed here based on a recommendation from a friend. I booked on hostel world 2 days before and paid 15€ more than people I met at the hostel who had just turned up so call the hostel directly. I found the customer service here dismal. People seemed to hate their job. If you work at a hostel famous for socializing you should like people. The guy who checked me in was pretty much rude. When I walked in to say hello he said "can't you see I'm busy? In saying that the hostel was clean, is just off a shopping street about 10 minutes walk from the station and has an awesome smoking room where you can chill and lots of paid social events throughout the week. Unlike other hostels I've stayed at they don't provide free city walks.
Hi there Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay,w e can learn a lot from your experiences. We are pleased to hear that you appreciated our social events in the bar and found us clean! Sorry however that your stay was not what you had expected it to be and in particular your encounter with our receptionist. We were shocked and sorry to hear this! This is certainly not the way we want to come across so will speak to them about this, thank you for bringing it to our attention. Thanks and apologies again, the piggies
Good Place for A Hostel”
For the price I paid as a solo traveler, it was worth it. Staff was friendly and helpful. In addition, the hostel was 5 minutes away from the main train station. My biggest pet peeve was that my hostel bathroom (4 person suite) wasn't cleaned on a daily basis. It smelled a little.
Yay, thank you very much for your review! We were super happy to hear you found our Piggy crew friendly and helpful and the location convenient. We were sorry to hear you were not fully satisfied with the cleanliness. You can always come and see our 24 hour reception desk if you find any of the areas messy and we'll clean it straight away. Happy travels! The Piggies
I booked for 6 people dormitory. The room and the toilet was clean. But only the problem was since its a mixed dormitory, my last night there was I had to sleep with 5 men. I was the only girl inside the room which is not good. I wish there will be a room for female only, that would be great. It’s a nice stay though.
Hi there! Thank you very much for your review, we really appreciate your feedback! We are sorry to hear you did not feel fully comfortable on your last night. We have a 6 bed female dormitory available and if you are experiencing any issues you can also always see our 24 hour reception desk- our Piggies are there to help you. :) We hope this did not influence your experience and you still enjoyed your stay. Safe travels! The Piggies
Don't expect anything too much for the price you pay at this hostel. Abit pricey for the cramp, stuffy, unclean room. However, location is good.
Hello! Thank you for commenting on your stay :) Great that you appreciated our central location for visiting the city! We are sorry to hear that your room was not up to the cleanliness standards we expected to deliver to you! We have a team of cleaners working around the clock to keep the hostel clean and a 24 hour reception desk so you can always let us know during your stay with us, we are happy to help :) Thanks again! The piggies
It's one night stay at the youth hostel, they have good facility, comfortable bed and clean toilet & good breakfast too. The only thing that surprise me that it is a shared dormitory & shared bathroom (which i never expect when booking), and the guy shared the room with us had smoke marijuana (he not having in the room, but you know the smell will stay for quite sometimes), thus i find it was very uneasy for me to sleep with the strong smell in the room.
Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay with us! We are pleased to hear that you found our facilities comfy and clean! Indeed all of our rooms are mixed dorms apart from our 6 bed female dorm! You chose to book a mixed dorm, so perhaps the female dorm would be better for next time! Indeed you can smoke in our 24 hour smoking room, but not in the rooms! We have a 24 hour reception desk and Whatsapp number, so you can always contact us during your stay, perhaps there is something we can do to help! Thanks again and safe travels! The Piggies
Solo Traveller Hut for Amsterdam Explorer”
Excellent location, as its a walking distance from train station. And walking distsnce to most of iconic places, Anne Franks museum, Rembrand museum, van Gogh, flower market. I stayed in single room, at the top floor, view is nice and room also complete with water heater to make tea and coffee. I love it a lot !
Hi Grace, Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to leave us a review. We are very pleased to read that you enjoyed the very central location of the hostel. We are in the heart of the city and so close to many main attractions, which like you said are just a sort walk away. We appreciate the fact that you like the little extra things in the room like the water heater, which means you don't have to go far for a warm drink. Thanks again for your lovely review and Happy Travels. The Flying Pig DT
OK. Could come back.”
Everything was good. Location excellente. Great breakfast (and included!!). The only thing to take into account is that, if you check in after midnight, the hostel demands to keep your passport.
Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay! Great that you appreciated our free breakfast and guest kitchen! If you check in after midnight you can pay with credit card, but not with cash for security reasons, this is why we temporarily hold your ID in our safe. Thanks again and see you next time!

This is a 7* Hostel”
