About The Flying Pig Downtown Hostel
The hostel is situated in an 18th century building that once gave house to a three star hotel. These days the Downtown location offers backpackers a friendly, outgoing and relaxed atmosphere in the middle of the city’s madness. It’s very safe to walk around here and a good place to hang out when the night falls.

For the daylight explorers: Cultural spots such as Dam square, the Royal Palace and the Anne Frank house are just around the corner. The outdoor market at Waterlooplein (square) is perfect for bargain shopping and the Rembrandtplein (square) is a great spot to discuss your day with a pint in hand.

Reviews (8.6 Excellent)
We very much enjoyed staying the Flying Pig Downtown, and it was an ideal location to stay for what we wanted to do. The staff were brilliant and very helpful. Hvaing the breakfast was also good, but could of been done with having it earlier.
Coffee Shop Across The Street, Downstairs Is Like Smoking At Grandpa's Pad, Big TV, Amazing Movie Selection, Party Lasts All Night, Kick Ass Music, Easy To Meet People, Free Breakfest, Internet, Pool Table, Women, Drugs, Bar, THE BEST HOSTEL RUNNING IN AMSTERDAM BABY!
I wouldn't recommend staying at the Flying Pig if you're not interested in smoking pot in their opium den like lobby and bar-- even though the location and staff are excellent, you're paying a whole lot of American dollars for a pretty average room and good breakfast.
Great hostel! Really nice staff!!! The bar and lounge are a great place to hang out! Really relaxed atmosphere. Walking distance from every interest point. Very safe!
everything was great!!!!!
