Do you want to hang out in one of the most famous hostel bars, including an indoor smoking area with pillow stage?
The Flying Pig Downtown is the place to be, located right next to Amsterdam Central Station.

We have dorms where every bed has a reading light, as well as private rooms with a little fridge and TV. Rates include free linen. There are single and queen-size bunk beds as well as a shower and toilet in most of the rooms. There are also free individual lockers in the rooms; bring your own padlock or buy one at reception for just 3.50 euro.

The Flying Pig Downtown provides free use of the guest kitchen, luggage storage, free Wi-Fi, a book exchange and a lively hostel bar with DJ nights and the cheapest beer in town. There is also a buffet style continental breakfast available everyday for only 3 euro.

Meeting people is very easy at this hostel while chilling on lounge pillows in the smoking area, drinking and playing pool in the bar, dancing to the music of local DJs and cooking meals in the guest kitchen.

We’re open 24hrs with keycard access to the hostel and there’s no curfew or lock-out. You can use the safe behind reception to store small valuables. Our reception offers tours and tickets to Amsterdam's attractions as well as Piggie merchandise.

We offer a free walking tour that picks guests up from the hostel everyday, a daily updated Amsterdam agenda, and a free detailed map of Amsterdam and discounts on several things to do in the city.

Leaving the Central Station, it is just a five-minute walk to the hostel and during this walk you'll already see the many restaurants, pubs, red lights of the famous Red Light District and shops. That's the party area where you'll most likely be spending your nights.

The hostel entrance is in Amsterdam's busiest shopping street and it is a perfect place to kick-start your night of club-, pub- and coffeeshop-hopping. Besides everything the hostel offers you, our international Piggie staff can provide you with all the information you need to get the most out of the Amsterdam experience.

Close to our hostel you will find the Red Light District with its famous windows. It’s very safe to walk around here and a good place to hang out when the night falls. There’s also Anne Frank House which brings you back to the time of the Second World War. In this house Anne Frank and her family hid away for years, before being deported to the concentration camp. The Royal Palace is very admirable too with its spectacular 16th-century halls and rooms, and Dam Square with its musical groups, performers and other entertainers.

Accepted forms are a valid passport or national ID card - driving licences are NOT accepted.
