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

The Flying Pig is a unique hostel. You can go and meet lot of people (turists, locals) while you do a really easy job and don't forget to chill. You will have staff discounts for beer and soft drinks. The staff is awesome, they will help you and teach everything you need. They are all really nice and funny. You won't regret if you pick up this hostel for your volunteer experience.
Thanks to Ben for everything and the rest of the team for making my first WP month an unforgettable one. Hope you guys visit me in Patagonia and I expect to come back to the Piggy another time:)
