Informations about Flying Pig Uptown

As the original Flying Pig hostel, we can't wait to welcome you again!

We're located perfectly central in-between the museum and fashion district, the park and Leidseplein, where the best concert-halls, clubs, bars and coffee shops are and most locals go out. You'll get that real Amsterdam feel and are still close enough to the red light district, which is only a 15-minute walk.

The Pig has been world-famous for its laidback atmosphere, with a hostel bar that everyone keeps talking about and friendly, helpful staff. We have a guest kitchen and a bar with indoor smoking area where you'll meet lots of people. This lively bar has theme nights, the cheapest beer in town and daily drinks specials!

Every bed in our dorms has a reading light, with single and queen-size bunk beds and free individual lockers in the rooms (bring your own padlock or buy one at reception for €3). There's a shower and toilet in most of the rooms. Our private rooms have a little fridge and TV.

There's free breakfast, linen and internet; one price covers all! The Flying Pig Uptown provides a free buffet-style breakfast, free use of our reception safe for small valuables, free luggage storage, Internet, Skype and Wi-Fi, a book exchange, free movies to watch and munchy food for sale! You can even borrow some skates for free.

This spring and summer you can enjoy Amsterdam's famous green grass in the beautiful Vondelpark, right outside the Flying Pig Uptown, for drinks, smokes and picnics. Check out the free musical and cultural performances on the park stage or play games with your (new) friends in your bare feet.

If you're in for some culture, the Van Gogh museum and the Rijksmuseum (with the 'Nachtwacht') are just around the corner, same as the beautiful Concert Building and the 'I Amsterdam' letters. Do you want to explore the Red Light District, some historic sites or Chinatown? Just take a stroll - everything is within walking distance. Public transport is close by, too.

But there's always more: go shopping at one of the local markets (such as the Albert Cuijp in the Pijp area) or the 'Nine Little Streets', drink a beer at the Amsterdam Heineken Museum or have a wild night out in the so-called pop temple the Paradiso, within crawling-home distance. You can borrow some free hostel skates and share a smoke, drink and a blanket with your (newly made) friends on the green grass of the famous Vondelpark. Laugh your head off at one of the comedy clubs on the Leidseplein or visit other local areas of the city.

At reception you can buy Pig merchandise and tickets to several events. We have free walking tours, a daily updated Amsterdam agenda, a free detailed map of Amsterdam and discounts on several things to do in Amsterdam. You get 50% off entrance to the Winston Kingdom club with your Flying Pig key card. We also offer a shuttle bus between Amsterdam and the Beach hostel.

We're open 24hrs with night security and no curfews or lockout. Access is by keycard.

Please note that the Flying Pig has an age restriction; we welcome guests from above 18 to the eternal young at heart!
