Liked: For a large hostel, the flying pig is wonderful. There are always lots of people around to chat with. Free breakfast was a refreshing change from the rest of the hostels I stayed at in Europe. They have great recommendations for places to see, eat at, coffeeshops, etc. They' re located far from the city centre, but that's not a problem ecause leidesplein - a bustling street - is a short walk away. All in all, a great place in Amsterdam.

Disliked: At times, the place (room and common area) felt a bit cramped

Liked: The flying pig was definitely a hostel with a very lively atmosphere. There were always places to lounge and it was cool the hostel had its own bar and a huge free breakfast. The drink deals and food was also a plus when you felt like having a couple without the high prices or hunting down a bar.

Disliked: The only complaint I would have was that this hostel was the dirtiest I've seen yet. The beds had random hairs all over it and the public toilet became so bad that I would walk to my room to use the bathroom. Also, there were no clean towels available. Basically it's the frat house of hostels , so you kind of know what to expect.

Liked: Awesome hostel with a good atmosphere and comfy beds. Breakfast was good and served late enough to sleep in a bit. Staff are helpful and fun, and everyone seems happy there.

Disliked: Nothing, except that there are lockers that go under the beds to store your things but you need to bring a lock to use them, or rent one from reception.
