“Lots of fun”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

Nice hostel, very friendly atmosphere staff and guests alike. Safe and secure, nice lockers under the beds. Nice breakfast included. If I'm being really picky the ensuite bathroom was a little small and floor was wet after anyone showered but that would be my only complaint. Great location, very close the train station and all the main sites. I would definitely stay here again.

I visited the Flying Pig Downtown with two friends while traveling around Europe. We stayed for 5 nights and could not have been more pleased. We stayed in the large dorms and met lots of fabulous people. The hostel is very well laid out and easily accessible from the tran station and the airport. The staff were very friendly and we always felt very safe there. They have lots of things going on in the hostel, from live bands, to DJ nights and you can always rent movies, laptops or board games if you want to stay in for the night. The room keys often seemed to de-activate but the staff were always very quick to assist. I would highly recommend this fabulous hostel to everyone!!

The staff are amazing. There are people from all over the globe coming together to stay and experience life. Exactly what I wanted with my 3 friends (age 20) on a weekend away in the glorious Amsterdam.

Located 5mins walk from the Centraal station and within easy walking distance of most tourist attractions
It was clean, safe and well worth the money
All the staff were very friendly even when we missed our flight home and had to book back in for an extra night
Basically id stay here again anytime and couldnt fault it!
Ps - loved the jäger challenge haha ;)

This was my first time staying in a hostel and also my first time in Amsterdam so i didn't really know what to expect.
We stayed for 3 nights in 2 different rooms. One was the 16 bed and the other 2 nights we were in a 32 bed room. The rooms were actually really nice, I stayed in a double with my friend it was really cosy actually lol.
The showers were very good and always clean. The only downside I would say was that when we were downstairs, there were no toilets, you had to go upstairs if you needed the toilet in the middle of the night which was a little bit inconvenient. i thought the shower rooms should've had toilets in really.
Beds were comfy and cleaned every day. The hostel itself was in a really good location, very close to Dam Sqaure and central station which was great for us. Not far to walk to the Anne Frank house either.
I would definitely recommend this hostel and go back there again.
