My experience in flying ping was very interesting, and funny
All the staff is a great family who try to help each other and want to have a good time.
Its very interesting know how its work in a hostel, it was a new experience for me and it seems to me very funny and educative.
I would repeat without a doubt, I have improved my English and I have met many new people from different countries, you not only interact with the staff, you also interact with the locals and guests so you meet a lot of interesting and different people, which is very fun.
it's an experience that I recommend.




I spended 5 weeks at flying pig beach hostel. I worked as a driver, the work is not hard and the atmosphere of the hostel is beautiful because all the nights there is music and parties.
The staff was always very good with me and clement with my english...
So this place is highly suggested!

The Flying Pig Beach Hostel is a fantastic place if you like to party and socialise . That being said it’s also important you remember you are there to work and play . The work varies so it keeps it interesting. You do cleaning, breakfast, bar shifts and night shifts ( fuck the night shift ! ) . The locals are super friendly and if you put the effort in with them then they will with you . The hostel itself has a great vibe . Ben and the other members of staff are fantastic at making you feel welcome and really contributing to the relaxed atmosphere that the pig has . Go and have fun!




My experience in the Pig couldn't have been better. Even when you have to work many hours it is worth it because of the environment and the people. It is a really social and party hostel, where you meet people from all over the world (when summer ends it become quieter). You feel that place as your home, and the staff and locals become your family. Noordwijk is a small and quiet city, but the location is perfect for travelling to other cities. I extremely recommend that place if you want to live the real hostel life. Thank you for everything! I love you Piggies <3




Noordwijk is a magic city and the Flying Pig couldn't be different, starting with the breathtaking dunes, the beerpong tourments, the parties, the dinners, laughs, everything so intense and unique. But what really makes it all worth is the staff, they're friends that I will take for my hole life.
The tasks aren't easy, but you challenge yourself and get surprised, I never thought I would drive in Amsterdam or cook for 20 people (and it was a risotto + 1 point for me).
Our rooms may not be the best, but our stories certainly are!
You could relax in knowing that the pig is sensational. <3
