I was really looking forward to staying at The Flying Pig considering all the hype surrounding it. On first arrival I was surprised with how small it actually is, the reception shares the bar, breakfast and the smoking room's "pillow stage" is simply a bunch of dirty pillows thrown around. I enjoyed being able to chill and have breakfast in...

The location is great and easy to find, and staff very friendly. Cool bar to relax and play pool in plus a mini outdoor area. Our private room was very clean and adequate. Only request would be a small fan for the room as it was extremely hot weather when we were there which made the rooms on the top...

Very strong security to get into hostel which is comforting. I was sick during my stay so didn't experience much of the night life but all the guests I spoke to said...

Located near central station (5min walk) and 8min walk from Dam Square. Staff is friendly. Great point for starting walking or bike tours. Rooms are clean and bathroom also. Great option to stay as city explorer or as business traveler. I meet some great people.

Stayed in an eight bed mixed room, beds were comfortable and the staff were helpful. The door of the room however was ridiculously loud to close, not sure whether this was intentional or not but I have never heard such a loud door. Bar atmosphere was good and smoking room busy. Would consider staying again.

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
