Liked: The Flying Pig Uptown Hostel had very friendly and helpful staff, good atmosphere, a nice bar and smoking room, and a fantastic breakfast.

Disliked: It was a bit far from the downtown action (although that's to be guessed from the name). Quite a walk. But close to museums and the park!

Liked: Staff was very helpful. Very 4:20 friendly.

Disliked: Had to pay to store bags before check in. Tons of stairs with no lift. To check in you have to go up a flight of stairs and then down a flight of stairs. And then the lockers were up on the third floor. Inconvenient.

Liked: The location near vondelpark and museumplein was great. Nicer than being right in the red light district. The bar and smoke room were great, however could get really packed and hectic at busy times. Definitely a party hostel so if that's what you are looking for then its great.

Disliked: Mixed dorms only. Really tiny bathrooms. Given the amount of people staying there, the common areas quite small so there is nowhere to go that is really very quiet or chilled - that's when you take advantage of being so close to vondelpark!

11 September 2013 kathleen would recommend this property

Liked: The staff was very kind and helpful. This is a very lively hostel is walking distance to restaurants, red light district and "cafes". The hostel caters to a younger crowd like most hostels and is well maintained. They even have a cute cat that roams the bar every now and then. They have WiFi at the bar but gets kinda spoty when I lay in my bed on the 3rd floor. The food is basic but above most other hostels: fruit, egg toast juice/tea and an assortment of jams. I will for sire return!

Disliked: The drinks at the bar are incredibly expensive and unfortunately.it is very hard to come by a shop that sells hard liquor. I guess that is the price you pay when you have smoke shops everywhere. The bunk beds are a bit low, even for someone who is 5'4.

Liked: Great atmosphere! The bar and happy hour specials are great. It's a great place to meet fellow travelers. The free breakfast is good as well. It included bread, fruit, cereal, nutella, jam, hard boiled eggs, coffee, tea, and orange juice. Good location right by Vondelpark and Museumplatz. It's on a quiet street by the park so you are able to get some sleep.

Disliked: Being on the 4th floor with no elevator was a bit rough! Especially when there is no air conditioning or fans in the room.

Liked: wasn't my thing but probably because I was travelling alone, not saying it's bad I can see why some people might like it, I think it's best if you're travelling in a group not solo.

Liked: Great location, and the basement (where the bar and smoking room are located) is a great place to hang out, meet people, and get ready to go out.

Disliked: Nothing really. The bathrooms could be cleaner but, ya know, it's a hostel.
