Liked: Friendly staff, great location, GREAT bar.

Disliked: My only REAL concern is that the 32 person dorm is a bit much....people are constantly coming and going and the door tends to slam shut, leading to alot of broken sleep.

Liked: Flying Pig Downtown is always full of people at the bar/lounge area. 24hour reception is really a good bonus. You can arrive at any hour, there is always people there.The staff is big and they're helpful whenever you need.You'll enjoy the nice ambient where you can meet lots of people.The Bedrooms are a bit messy, but they offer a plenty of services. There are hairdryers in bathrooms and also a luggage room if you want to keep some bags outside room.The Wifi everywhere is awesome.

Disliked: The cards system is very good, but sometimes didn't work. The toilets are too small to do the hygiene we need. The lockers for the luggage in the bedrooms were not so good (you need to have one for yourself). They could have chose a different material other than wire. It would be nice to have one more computer to use, but it's ok.

Liked: Great bar with drink specials especially jagerbombs. DJ nights are particularly great. The bathrooms could use an upgrade and PLEASE ADD SOAP DISPENSERS. the lockers are under the bed and somewhat awkward to use but they serve the purpose. breakfast is bread and cereal.

Trung Tran

25 March 2010 Trung would recommend this property

Liked: Great place to meet people and having fun. Great facilities, we have bar, pool, soccer table and great free breakfast too... But there is one thing I dont like that is the room is too cold. I stayed in the 14 beds dorm and then realised that there is only one heater in the room and it doesnt provide enough heat for the whole room. So there is only one option is sleep if you are in the room. Just wondering how people survive if this is winter? May not come back again.

Liked: Brilliant little place with good beds, was in 32person room, its not as bad as it sounds as its like 2 rooms and mostly double bunk beds so it feels very spacious. They take your towels if u leave em on the racks tho so be carefull. But they gave us 2 free towels to make up for it. Im actually back at the hostel now writing this!
