Liked: The staff are friendly and have knowledge of the town.

Disliked: The Private rooms are too hot and barley any air as windows do not open enough.The place looks a little worn in. The price!!! Could get more facilities and services in hotel room then the private room.Also the facilities aren't large enough to cater for the amount of people staying at the hostel ie the smoking room or the sitting room outdoors out of the back.One more thing..BREAKFAST.. Very average compared to other hostels and is in the basement.

Hi there,

Thanks a lot for your feedback! We can learn a lot from it, so we really appreciate it you took the time to fill this out.
We are very sorry to read though, your experience with us was not what you expected.
Thank you for bringing the hot private room to our attention, our maintenance team installed ventilators straight away.

To learn more about your experience, we will contact you personally.

Safe travels,

The Flying Piggies

Liked: It had everything you needed and the layout is great with an awesome atmosphere.

Disliked: No wi-fi in our 2nd floor room, only a little bothered by that, being stoned in bed you'd obviously want to have a net browse there than trek downstairs; there is an elevator.

Hi there,

Thank you so much for the high ratings! It is great to read you enjoyed your stay with us.
The WiFi used to be only available in the common area's but the next time you will be staying with us, you will be able to enjoy our WiFi throughout the entire building :D We recently upgraded it so everyone can use it in the rooms as well.

Hope to see you back some day!

Happy travels!

Liked: Location was bang in the centre of town on a busy shopping street near Central Station. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean and a free breakfast always makes me happy. Smoking room was chill and the staff were very helpful. It was a really fun place to hang out.

Disliked: Paying for the storage lockers. Although they were very cheap compared to some I have seen.
