Our Flying Pig Uptown Hostel is located right in the middle of Amsterdam next to the Leidseplein, the square famous for its street artists and a huge variety of clubs, pubs, coffee shops and restaurants.
The hostel is located in a typical old-Amsterdam mansion, overlooking the Vondelpark. It is known for its great mix between a laid back atmosphere and the real Amsterdam party vibes. Many friends have been made in our inviting hostel bar. Cheap beer (cheapest in town!) and many drink specials! The super friendly staff is always willing to help you with whatever you need. You can relax on the pillow stage, smoke in our indoor smoking area, play games, watch free movies or have some drinks without leaving the building. But if you do so, you won't regret it; the hostel is located in a very beautiful street next to the park, within a minute distance from all the action.
If you are 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 '9 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 (new 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.
