Broke down palace
The flying pig is great for younger folks but I felt I was too old to be there (I'm 53). Most disappointing was the fact that on my floor 3 of the toilets were broken and useable and 3 of the showers were out of order. The place seems run down.

Great hostel
The Flying Pig Uptown is a friendly and well-staffed hostel with people who keep it in good condition. The location is fantastic, right at the edge of the museum district. Breakfast is excellent and includes breads, cereals, cheese and hard boiled eggs. Every bed has a pretty spacious locker associated with it during your stay (you can buy a padlock if you want.) Every bed has a plug and shelf. There are some downsides--the common area can get quite crowded and loud, there are a lot of narrow/steep stairs to go anywhere, and at check out time there is a wait/traffic jam at reception. But those are all minor issues; overall (and especially for the price), highly recommended.

Fantastic hostel in Amsterdam
This is a great hostel, very fun place for people in their 20's. Very comfortable beds compared to other hostels. Very close to Van Gogh Museum and Risjksmuseum. The breakfast (included) was solid. Toast/Nutella cereal hardboiledeggs juice milk coffee.

Checked in 11pm Tuesday night, some kind of staff party happening. Pressed the buzzer at the door a few times but no response, another guest was having trouble with his key card also. Someone else eventually swiped their card to open the door. Got to the reception/bar and waited about 10mins. During this time almost 10 staff walked past/through the area with little acknowledgment, although it was obvious we were checking in rather than buying a drink, by both of us having our bags on our backs. Eventually a girl (not seen previously) attended to us and said she just needed to finish serving a customer at the bar and she would be right with us. A minute later and she attended to us and we were sorted for the stay. room was tidy, clean and well presented. It was a little small and difficult to open the door when everyone had their under bed lockers pulled out, but hey, its a hostel so its to be expected. We did enjoy our stay and will stay again, the local area was quiet and not far from a few different tram stops so getting around was easy. There are some steeps stairs but that has been mentioned before, so guests should be aware.
