One of the best hostels I have stayed at so far. The beds were very comfortable, the showers and bathrooms were clean, the free breakfast was great. I could keep going on. The staff was very friendly and the whole hostel had a very nice atmosphere. It was the first hostel that I stayed at where people actually went to...

Firstly let me just say I am budget traveler and self proclaimed nomad. Opting to uproot my current existence every couple of years for a new location and perspective. But with that in mind, comes the task of travelling and living on a tight budget, particularly when it comes to temporary living quarters. And that's where the Flying Pig Hostel...

This is my second time staying at the Flying Pig Uptown. The last time I stayed a quick overnight layover and remember having a very pleasant experience so decided to come back.

One of the better hostels I've stayed in, free continental breakfast, friendly and knowledgeable staff (ask them about the area!) and the place itself has some nice charm to it. Prices for the room were good, towels could be rented for ~€3, and padlocks could be purchased to keep belongings safe. I find the uptown hostel to be preferable to...

I stayed at the Flying Pig Uptown for 5 days I was happy for what you got for the money; the staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are decent and the location is great to get to all of the main attractions of Amsterdam, but still be far enough away to be a little more peaceful.

Neighbourhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
