Celine Coates thinks…

"Bed al opgedekt bij aankomst, zalig! Gezellige bar, maar geen geluidsoverlast hiervan in de kamer. Lekker uitgebreid ontbijt. Super vriendelijk personeel. Prijs - kwaliteit!"

Liked: I would recommend staying here. It is nice except washrooms should be cleaned more. Breakfast in the morn is toast and cereal. that is fine. We stayed in a room with 12 others...something to get used to if you haven't stayed in a hostel before. Pretty good place. Location is fairly good. Walking distance (5 to 30 mins) for most attractions. Hostel is located in Leidseplein which is a nice area.

David Renshaw

13 May 2010 David would recommend this property

Liked: Place was clean and warm. Amsterdam was fkn freezing (and is Spring). Most staff were good, one girl might have been having a bad day, but other than that everyone was relaxed, chilled out, but informative if you wanted to know something.There is a weed smoking room on-site, so all those trying for the first time can smoke downstairs, then you are not too far away from your bed and/or friends, instead of being lost in Amsterdam totally stoned.Good security locker system under the bed, a wire cage, but bring your own padlock.For me, it was too far away from Centraal Station, getting lost with all the streets and trams was a hassle for me.

Customer review

08 May 2010

Liked: The staff was really helpful and the location was good for what I was looking for, but I was a little frustrated with my hostelmates who seemed to only leave the hostel to buy weed and then came back to smoke it in the smoking room until they passed out. It was hard to meet travel companions since no one seemed to want to actually see Amsterdam, which is such a great city.

Kelci Mohr

14 April 2010 Kelci would recommend this property

Liked: Loved how it was right next to Vondelpark - awsome place to chill, smoke, bike... it's nice that they give you a towel, the smoking room is convenient, the neighborhood is quiet and the atmosphere in the bar is pretty cool. the showers are nice and hot and the laptops available for rent are extremely convenient. the staff are friendly and helpful, if sometimes a little stoned? beds are comfy.Some suggestions: The assigned-bed policy is a bit on the Nazi side... its a 14 bed dorm. loosen up a little.- does the music in the bar really need to be blaring at 7 a.m.? its cool at night, but during breakfast it might be a little overboard.- the rooms were pretty cold at night so try to weasel yourself an extra blanket...

Liked: The Flying Pig has a nice cosy atmosphere, very laid back and cool. The people working there were nice, the beer was cheap, but no pitcher after 3 am was a letdown ;-), i would recommend it because it is affordable, a fun place and the music played while eating breakfast was very good :-)

Shelby Knapp

21 March 2010 Shelby would recommend this property

Liked: the staff was really helpful and fun. the bar is lively at night, which is fun for meeting people. The location is great and close to many attractions and the nearby tram/bus station can take you anywhere in the city. The breakfast consisted of PB & J and bad coffee, but cant expect much from a hostel anyway. On the bad side, there is no airport shuttle or computers to rent, as the website says there is.

Liked: the place had a good vibe and the atmosphere was gr8.staff were very helpful where possible.other than having weed stolen when i turned my back at breakfast it was gr8.other than that incident the flying pig was excellent in every aspect.i travelled alone and felt completely safe and comfortable there.the only dissapointment to my entire visit was that 1 incident.so as a whole id reccommend this place to lone travellers or groups just looking for few days of fun.if the price is still as reasonable as it was when i stayed,ill stay there again when im next in amsterdam..
