MORE THAN SIMPLE GUIDES
After another day of skating, biking or just relaxing in the park it is just 2 minutes by foot to get to the famous Leidse Plein. On this square you?ll have fun just watching all different people and performers passing by, while enjoying your drink on one of the many terraces. At night all pubs, clubs and theatres open their doors to guarantee you a good time. Our own Uptown Bar in the hostel is a very good place to meet fellow travelers, and to save some money on drinks, because we have the lowest beer price in town, so you can drink cheap before going out.
Feel like a cultural boost? "The Pig Uptown" is just 200 meters away from the three famous Dutch museums
The Van Gogh Museum,
Museum of Modern Art ,
The Rijks Museum
Really worth a visit is Heineken Brewery, where you can try our local beer for FREE!!
The service of free kitchen facilities can lead to trying local dishes of fellow travelers and cozy dinners in our lounge area.
Besides everything the hostel offers you, our international piggy staff can provide you with all the information you need to get the most out of the Amsterdam experience.

You will be charged for all bookings you make so please make sure you book at the hostel of your choice (Downtown, Uptown or Beach) for the dates of your choice. If you have made a reservation over the internet and you wish to extend your stay, you have to make a second reservation for the extending date(s). If there is no online availability on the extended dates, it means that all cyber beds are booked. You can still try to extend your stay when you arrive at the hostel. Subsequent nights of accommodation must be paid for on arrival, or no later than 21:00 hrs, the day before.
Please make sure you cancel bookings you made at other hostels. If you don't cancel at the other Flying Pig hostels, your credit card will be charged as a no-show. In case of a no-show, your credit card will be charged for the 1st night of your stay, the rest of that booking will be canceled.
Cancellations or changes to your existing reservation have to be made at least 24 hours before arriving. You can do this on Monday-Thursday by e-mail you will find the contact details on your confirmation from Hostelbookers. Always send your reservation details with your change or cancellation, so your reservation can be found in the system as soon as possible. Make sure you cancel all your bookings.
Only when you receive a personal reply with the confirmation of your change or cancellation, you can be sure that it has been processed. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday you will have to call the hostels directly. Write down the date and time of canceling and the name of the person you spoke to.
After making the reservation, you receive an e-mail, with all your booking details and a reference number. This is your confirmation. Make sure you bring this confirmation with you to the hostel that you booked with otherwise reservation confusion will be at your own responsibility. If you do not receive a confirmation from us, you do not have a reservation.
We make every effort to accommodate you in the dormitory size of your choice. However, because of the nature of our business, we may have to place you in an alternative dormitory. As a result, the balance to be paid upon arrival might be slightly different than what is stated on your confirmation.
A booking for over 10 persons is considered a group booking and can not be booked over the web. To find out if you can make a group booking, you can call the head office on week days from 10am to 5pm local time (Amsterdam).
