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 !
Best location to stay in Amsterdam!! The crews were all super friendly and helpful!!
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
Love this place. Very good especially for solo traveller. Food was good.
Hey there! Thank you for a lovely review! We were glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and found it perfect for a solo traveler. Till next time! 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
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
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
The best location
Hi there! Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay! We are pleased to hear that you found us nice and in the best location! We hope to see you again next time! Happy Travels! The Piggies
the ground floor looks like night club,its too annoy to sleep.the room's door is too thin to block any voice,so that's mean every person who was talking while they passing my door,its so noise.
Hi there Thank you for taking the time to let us know a bit more about your stay with us! We were sorry to hear that you found the noise level this way. You booked to stay in one of our largest rooms of 14 people so there can be a lot of foot traffic. However, we offer free earplugs at our 24 hour reception desk. There is always someone you can contact there, or on Whatsapp, no matter the time of day, we are here to help :) Thanks again! The piggies
nearly perfect stay ”
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!
Hey there! WoooohoooO! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such wonderful comments on your stay! We are thrilled to hear that you found us one of the best hostels you have stayed at! Great that you appreciated our safe security and kitchen facilities! We are pleased that you also found time to enjoy our nightly bar events for meeting people ;) We look forward to welcoming you back! The Piggies :)
good place for weeds, but not for rest”
big open area for smoking which is not avoidable coz it is located on the g/f. i reserved a private room for two but turn out the reception said what we booked was two beds in dorm. staff is not very helpful and couldnt speak fluent english.
Hi there ! Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay with us! We were a bit confused by your comments! You booked a double bed in a room of 32 people! All of our reception staff speak fluent English, perhaps something was lost somewhere, our apologies for this. Indeed we have a 24 hour smoking room but that is the only area by which you can smoke in the whole hostel. We also have a bar with pool table, kitchen and chill out area which are all non smoking ;) Thanks again and safe 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

Hi! Thank you kindly for your comments! We are pleased you appreciated our central location for all our your travelling needs ;) We were a little shocked to hear your comment about our staff as we normally pride ourselves on our service, so we will contact you personally to explore a bit more about this. 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
This is a 7* Hostel”
1. Location is super great. Everything is within a short walk. 5 mins from central station and 5 mins from Dam square. 2. Bed is confortable and room is well maintained and fresh. 3. Staff are amazing. Each one of them is like a Manager. I stayed 4 nights and never heard
Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay with us! We are thrilled to hear you found us 7* ;) WOO hhhoo! Great that you found our staff amazing and rooms clean ;) We hope to see you again! :) The piggies
Not worth the money (private room)”
The location is superb, the staff is friendly and helpful, but the private room is bare minimum. No closet, no shelves, not even a bar with hangers. The bathroom had no shower plate and the floor had the wrong slope, so the water flooded almost the whole bathroom. The water pressure was very low. I was told all the private rooms are the same thing. Maybe the shared rooms are OK. There should be separate valuations for shared and private rooms.
Hey! Thank you for commenting on your stay! We are pleased to hear that you found our location superb and our staff friendly :) Sorry to hear that you found our private room this way, we have since added a kettle, coffee, tea, a safe and also a hairdryer to help :) Thanks again and safe travels! The piggies

Had an amazing time staying here, met some great people. It's probably one of the best hostel's I've stayed in, and has a really good atmosphere :) If anything it's a bit expensive, but was worth it :)
Hi there! Thank you for your kind review! We are thrilled to hear that you found us brilliant and met some amazing people! Thats what we like to hear :) See you next time! 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!
