Amsterdam Hostels - The Flying Pig Downtown Youth Hostel
Our Flying Pig Downtown Youth Hostel is located next to Amsterdam Central Station and the Red Light District. This 18th century building has been transformed into one of the best party spots in all of Amsterdam! Our youth hostel is known for its wild nights and a relaxed atmosphere, mixed in with all the comforts of home!
What to do in and around this Amsterdam youth hostel?
Cultural hot spots such as Dam square, the Royal Palace and the Anne Frank house are just around the corner from the Flying Pig Downtown Youth Hostel. The main shopping street in Amsterdam is just outside the hostel’s front door, but for great bargain shopping go to the outdoor market at Waterlooplein (square). Or you can stroll around the oldest part of Amsterdam (the Jordaan area) - well known for its tiny houses, canals and many cosy restaurants. The Rembrandtplein (square) is a great spot to spend your time with a pint in hand and after a big day of strolling around, and exploring the city, you’re very welcome at the hostel to have a few drinks, relax and party with your fellow backpackers! Amsterdam hostels might not be the most spacious buildings in the world given that there are so many people living in Amsterdam - in such a small space - BUT the bar at the Flying Pig Downtown Hostel is as spacious as it gets and it sells the cheapest beer!
Oh, and please note that we have a lovely cat in the hostel.

I had a great stay at the Flying Pig Downtown, really close to the tourist centre of the city, red light district etc, and the bar and smoking room made for a great atmosphere in which to meet people. You mat pay more than some other hostels in the area but you get what you pay for, (except on wkends, when everywhere in Amsterdam is insanely priced). Also great kitchen facilities which is a must if you want to cook for yourself. Thanks for the great stay guys!
