    Lonely Planet review

    Hang out with hundreds of young, dope-smoking backpackers at this very relaxed, massive 250-bed hostel. It's a bit grungy, but no one seems to mind, especially when there's so much fun to be had in the throbbing lobby bar, which has a pool table and occasional DJs. There's also an indoor smoking area, full-service kitchens and a cushion-lined basement nicknamed the 'happy room'.

    Rates include a continental breakfast.

    Our independent authors have visited Flying Pig Downtown and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Medieval Centre & Red Light District.

    Description provided by property

    The Flying Pig Downtown is conveniently located next to Central Station! In the two minute walk from Central Station to the hostel you will find a lot of restaurants, pubs, red lights and shops, so you can see that you will not be stuck for things to do when you stay here.
    In the hostel you will find many friendly guests which you can quickly get to know when you play some pool in the bar, chill-out on the pillows in the pillow area; relax in the smoking area or when you are cooking yourself a meal. Our bar is also a great place to make friends. We have a DJ to keep you entertained and get you up dancing and the bar is open until 4am every night, serving cheap beer. We also have an area where you can sit back and watch some movies for free. We also have a book exchange.
    We are located on the busiest street in the city. Here you will find a lively nightlife with a variety of clubs, pubs and coffee-shops to choose from. Nearby lies Amsterdam's famous Red Light District, the Ann Frank House, The Royal Palace and Dam Square, full of entertainment. Guests can get into the Winston Kingdom Club for half price when they show their key card.
    Our international staff is here to help you at all times and give you information about the city to make sure you make the most of your stay. We provide free walking tours, free map, discounts on some of the things to do in Amsterdam and we also sell some tickets at reception.

    We have dorms and private rooms with shower and toilet in most of them. Single and queen size bunk-beds are available and private rooms have a mini fridge and TV. There are free lockers in the room for each guests but please remember to bring a padlock in order to use it; alternatively you can purchase one from reception at a cost of €5.
