Flying Pig Uptown Hostel

Vossiusstraat 46, Amsterdam, North Holland, 1071AJ, Netherlands

This is the place for backpackers who like to chill out and meet lots of friendly people, and the handful of private rooms are some of the best-value accommodations in town. The price includes not only breakfast and sheets, but also Internet and guided walking tours. There's also a shuttle service to their sister hostel near the beach in Noordwijk. You don't need much money to have a good time here: the bar claims to serve the cheapest beer in town, and you can cook your own meal in the communal kitchen. If you're traveling as a couple or don't mind sharing with a friend, the best deal is to book a queen-size bunk in one of the dorms. The admittance policy is strict: if you're under 18, you'll have to look elsewhere. There's also a Flying Pig Hostel downtown.
