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.

Disliked: rooms are dingy too dark and unwelcoming

Liked: Such an amazing hostel - really nice location, next to the park and near lots of shops and restaurants, can walk into the centre in about 20 minutes. Cheap bar, crazy cheap, and the staff are lovely. The rooms are big and the beds are comfortable. Showers are good. Overall great value for money, and don't be put off by people saying its a party hostel, the rooms are far from the bar so you won't hear anything when you want to go to bed. Had an amazing time here, wish I could stay longer!

Disliked: The toilets are a bit unsavoury, but they do try to keep them clean.

Liked: Great party atmosphere but not one of those hostels where people are coming in at all hours making loads of noise- sleep is possible if you want it. Staff are mainly English people come over to Amsterdam to party, and they're all very helpful. Even though it's marketed as the hostel that's a bit out of town it was more central than we thought, you can walk to the main bar/club area in 5 mins and Dam Square in 25 mins if you don't take the tram.

Disliked: The kitchen is quite small and crowded so it's not easy to make your own food, but that's it.

Liked: The hostel is next to Vondelpark on a quiet and beautiful road, which was really nice. 5 minute walk from Leidseplein and the buses/trams. Nice downstairs bar area and smoking lounge.

Disliked: The bathrooms are really tiny if you don't have your own in the room. Showers are a bit awkward to use.

Liked: The Flying Pig Uptown, although seems to be a little bit out of the city centre, had a great location for us. We were able to walk to everything we wanted to see. Van Gogh Museum and Rijksmuseum are really close. The night life in Leidseplein is in 4-5 minutes walking distance. Also it is 3 minutes far from a bus&tram station where there is a bus to/from the Airport. So, my only worry about the hostel (that it was far from the centre) was not at all a worry in the end ;)

Disliked: I wish I was informed about the free daily city tours starting every morning from the hostel. We found it out on the last day and we enjoyed a 3-hour tour with a friendly city guide!
