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.

Liked: Good Rooms, Fun place

Disliked: Not far from the centre, but If I went back I would definitly book at the downtown location instead. Overall staff were really nice, but there was one girl on reception who was unfriendly and gave us wrong directions to places and just didnt seem to care .

Liked: Everything, especially the bar in which you can meet a whole bunch of people!

Disliked: The only thing I didn't like much has been that they kept the music in the bar until 3 or 4 a.m., but it wasn't such a big problem.

Liked: It's placed on a calm part of the city, and the rooms, showers and bathrooms are very clean and tidy. There's also a smoking room, very nice idea, not present in al of the hostels in Amsterdam.

Disliked: There's some sort of security deposit they charge you BEFORE you check-in, and you only get repaid for that after 5 days... as I booked hostel for all of my friends who went with me there, I had a problem, because for each one of them 22 EURO were discounted on my card. Also the kitchen is not that good,.

Liked: The environment.

Disliked: They use the pre authorization in your credit card one day in advance(before the arrival). It can cause problems for travelers who use pre paid credit card like me. Usually backpackers are counting with this money, and it return to your account 5 days later(when you don't need anymore).
