It's nice, but it's not like Flying Pig Downtown. I have been first in Downtown for 3 days, after that i stay on this one for another 3 days and a came back to Downtown for more 4 days. Maybe if i stay first here, i would love it. But i thing downtown put the standards to high. It's a...

We recently stayed here for just one night and we really enjoyed it. We had a double en suite with washroom. The room was not incredibly big but it was all that you really need, because for the most part you are out exploring the city. The staff were very welcoming and helpful with letting us know good places to...

I've stayed in many hostels over the years but I have to say, this was one of the best, if not THE best. From cleanliness to staff friendliness, there's nothing negative to say. The bathrooms and showers were super clean, as were the downstairs common areas and kitchen. Well done for running a tight ship lads, as well as making...

The Flying Pig Uptown is a nice hostel with friendly staff. The reason I give it 1 out of 5 is simply because after checking-in & paying for your stay in full you could find out, like I did, that through your stay, every time you wish to get to your room you will have to climb 7 FLOORS WITHOUT...

We stayed here on our holiday in Amsterdam. The first thing to say is that the layout is a bit strange... on first entering, it all felt like a bit of a maze, reception is on the end of the bar in the basement - although it is signposted and there's also only one way you can go other than...

The location is awesome. Next to bars, tourist attractions and in front of the beautiful Vondelpark. Stayed in a 6-bed room. The room was ok and quiet, but toilets weren't very clean and they were small. Breakfast is very simple. Suggest to eat something nearby. The hostel could include at least cheese. Attention if you travel with big luggage -...

I stayed from 4th April-7th in a 10 man dorm (4th floor). The room was excellent, lovely and clean and very spacious. The staff were very friendly, always ready to help (even though Dutch customer service is VERY laid back). The location was excellent, just outside of the busy city centre...within a few minutes walk. The Vondelpark is an amazing...

This hostel has a really good atmosphere. The team is great and always helped me when requested. They have a smoking room and a cool bar, in which you can choose to either buy their food/drinks or bring your own. There were a few issues: first of all the most commented one - the stairs. I get that is a...

Hi Cintia, We want to thank you for your review, we can really learn a lot from your experience! It is great to read that you enjoyed the atmosphere, bar and smoking room! We understand that the stairs can be quite a climb, this is because the building is constructed in the old traditional Amsterdam architecture, but we are happy...

4 nights at the Pig Uptown. I absolutely loved it. Super friendly staff, clean rooms. A socket and a bedside lamp at each bed was very good.

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.
