I had such a blast at the Flying Pig Downtown!!! The staff were friendly and helpful from the minute I walked in. The atmosphere is so warm and friendly that I immediately felt welcomed. The rooms themselves are really nice and very spacious. As a solo female traveler I felt really safe here. I will definitely be staying here again the next time in amsterdam!!!
