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. If youï¿½re in the 'don't-want-to-mingle-tonight-and-just-want-to-watch-televisionï¿½ mood there are DVD movies playing as well as 24-hour free internet access. The bar is open until 4am every night, where the bartenders sell the cheapest beers in town!!
Weï¿½re open 24hrs with night security and keycard access and thereï¿½s no curfew or lock-out. You can use the safe behind reception to store small valuables. Our reception also sells tickets to several events and places and Pig merchandise. Thereï¿½s a shuttle bus service between Amsterdam and the Beach hostel.
Our friendly staff also have free walking tours, a daily updated Amsterdam agenda, a free detailed map of Amsterdam and discounts on several things to do in the city. You also get 50% off entrance to Winston Kingdom club with your Flying Pig key card!
Leaving the central station, it is just a two-minute walk to the hostel and during this two-minute walk youï¿½ll already see the many restaurants, pubs, red lights of the famous Red Light District and shops. Thatï¿½s the party area where youï¿½ll 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. Itï¿½s very safe to walk around here and a good place to hang out when the night falls. Thereï¿½s 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 good, too, with its spectacular 16th-century halls and rooms, and Dam Square with its musical groups, performers and other entertainers.
And donï¿½t forget ï¿½ one price covers all!
