For over 18 years people from all over the world find their way to the dutch coast to enjoy a stay in the Flying Pig Beach hostel.

The hostel is run by Ben Milam, a young manager from Britain and well traveled, we work with a core staff that work under contract and a team of volunteers that help on daily tasks. Because one of our core values is equality we treat everybody with the same amount of respect and try to motivate everybody to get the best out of themselves. We give people a lot of freedom and motivate them to take their own responsibility to make their stay and their job a succes. Staff eats everyday together and can enjoy them self's in our lively bar in the hostel.

An unforgettable experience!
It is definitely a place I want to return to. The people who work at the hostel are wonderful, as are the locals in town. Ben, the manager, is always very kind and friendly. I definitely recommend it, a place where you feel at home outside of it.
¡Muchas gracias por todo!

I came here later than I expected because of COVID but they were really understandable and we arranged a different date. I am so thankful that I got the chance to live this experience; the hostel is a really nice place to live, is quiet but you have always something to do and people to talk to, (the locals are really nice!). About the team, everybody is so open-minded and friendly, always willing to have a good time and we also help each other a lot while working. The work is really easy to learn and get used to, cleaning and breakfast shifts are chill (nothing that anyone can’t compete).
