Maiju Heiskanen thinks…

"Very laidback, friendly staff. Facilities were clean. Elevator is a plus in an Amsterdamian hostel ;) The stairs are a bit scary. Breakfast was better than most hostels and included in the prize.…"

Looking for some fun nights of chatting with fellow travelers on lounge pillows, playing pool in the bar, dance to the music of cool DJ’s and getting happy in our happy room? Downtown is the ideal spot for you!
Three times a week the pig gets funky, inviting local DJ's to come spin beats on our turntables.

Beds will be held until 2pm each day unless guest confirms later estimated time of arrival by phone Read more

Shared Rooms Help! A shared room (typically a dorm) is a bedroom which you share with other people from the property. The number of beds in a room is shown in the room name, e.g. ‘5 Bed Dorm’, and you can book as many as you need. Some properties have male only dorms and female only dorms.

About The Flying Pig Downtown Hostel

If you are in the ‘don’t-want-to-mingle-tonight-and-just-want-to-watch-television-mood’ there are movies for rent. There is an open kitchen, 24 hour free WiFi and the bar is open until 3AM every night, where the bartenders sell the cheapest beers in town.

Leaving the central station, it is just a 2-minute walk to the hostel and during this 2 minute walk you will already see the many restaurants, pubs, red lights of the famous Red Light District and shops! That is the party area you’ll spend your nights in.

Flying Pig Terms and Conditions
To preserve and maintain our laid-back atmosphere we do not allow: Persons under 18 or above 40, pets, any bookings of stag nights, hen nights or sport tours, soccer fans for (inter)national matches and large groups of males (6 persons or more). In the event of a false booking, there will be no check in nor will there be a refund.

Our Maximum stay is 7 days.

When you make a reservation on our secure server, your card is charged a 10% deposit online, which is nonrefundable. On the day of arrival we will check your credit card number. If the number is not valid for any reason, your reservation will be canceled. Upon arrival you can pay with your credit card/bankcard or cash. In case you have not arrived the next day and did not cancel your reservation at least 24 hours before arrival, you will be charged for the first night.

Opening hours of the Downtown reception 8:00-23:30. When you arrive after this time, you will need to leave your passport as a deposit, which you will get back the next morning when you officially check in before 10:30 am.

You will be charged for all bookings you make, so please make sure you book at the hostel of your choice and for the dates of your choice. If you have made a reservation over the internet and you wish to extend your stay, you have to make a second reservation for the extending date(s). If there is no online availability on the extended dates, it means that all cyber beds are booked. You can still try to extend your stay when you arrive at the hostel. Subsequent nights of accommodation must be paid upon arrival.

Please make sure you cancel bookings you made at other hostels. If you don't cancel at the other Flying Pig hostels, your credit card will be charged as a no-show for the 1st night.

Cancellations or changes to your existing reservation have to be made at least 24 hours before arriving. You can do this on Monday-Thursday by e-mail. Our contact details are provided on your confirmation email sent from Hostelbookers. Always send your reservation details with your change or cancellation, so your reservation can be found in the system as soon as possible.
Only when you receive a personal reply with the confirmation of your change or cancellation, you can be sure that it has been processed. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday you will have to call the hostels directly. Write down the date and time of canceling and the name of the person you spoke to.

After making the reservation, you receive an e-mail, with all your booking details and a reference number. This is your confirmation. Make sure you bring this confirmation with you to the hostel that you booked with, otherwise reservation confusion will be at your own responsibility. If you do not receive a confirmation from us, you do not have a reservation.
We make every effort to accommodate you in the dormitory size of your choice. However, because of the nature of our business, we may have to place you in an alternative dormitory. As a result, the balance to be paid upon arrival might be slightly different than what is stated on your confirmation.

Bookings for 10 or more people are considered group bookings and can be made through the HostelBookers Group Booking service.

The Pig Management & Staff reserve the right to refuse accommodation to anyone.

Accommodation Information

In our Downtown Hostel we have dorm rooms that sleep between 4 and 32 people. Of course the rule is - the bigger the dorm, the smaller the price.
When you’re traveling together we have another great option available for you – Queen size beds. These are double bunks (1.20 m x 2.20 m) that are available in both the small and the large dorms. You share these beds so it’s only fair that you share the price too. So whether you’re a couple in love or two friends trying to save some money, try it out. It’s cosy and fun, and these beds are cheaper than two singles together!
Note: A Queen size bunk bed (120 cm wide) is a mattress for two people and they are only available in shared dorm rooms. As you wouldn't want to share a mattress with a stranger, you can only book them as a whole bed – not as a half. In other words you always pay for two people when you book a Queen size bed - but the prices shown are per person.

Location Information

The main shopping street in Amsterdam is just outside the hostel’s front door, but for great bargain shopping go to the outdoor market at Waterlooplein (square).
Close to the Downtown you will find...
The Red Light District: With its famous windows. It’s very safe to walk around and a good place to hang out when the night falls.
Anne Frank House: Bringing you back to the time of The Second World War. In this house Anne Frank and her family hid away for years, before being deported to the concentration camp.
The Royal Palace: With its spectacular 16th century halls and rooms.
Dam Square: With its musical groups, performers and other entertainers.
