We landed in Amsterdam, check into one of the most happening party hostels. Flying Pig Uptown - highly recommended, there is a lovely pub in the ground floor - eat, drink, party and go back to your dorm hassle free. Be aware that there are lots of young and free people around. We spent a good 3 days at this hostel, the pub converts into a lovely breakfast place in the mornings - breakfast included in the stay ( I must mention delightful staff)
