28 September 2009 Davis would recommend this property

Liked: Flying pig has a great common room to meet other travellers, and is located in a fantastic spot. We were disappointed that the kitchen advertised has limited access, and is not open before 1pm. We were also very surprised at the rudeness of a majority of the staff that we dealt with. The reception is always packed and the staff we came across were very unhelpful. The security of our belongings was also an issue as our beds did not have lockers and the lockers in the room were broken. We did use the safe deposit in reception but it took over 30 minutes to get out stuff as there were so many people checking in. Overall, although this is a great hostel, the attitude of the staff is that they don't like working there and don't like helping people.

Disliked: Davis left no negative feedback.

Liked: Very good overall hostel. Must hop on short tram ride to get to the city center. One unexpected item was that the kitchens are only open from 13:00 - 22:30, so I wasn't able to prepare meals in the morning.

Nicole Chinneck

30 August 2009 Nicole would recommend this property

Liked: There were lockers big enough for your entire backpack and more underneath the beds so you didnt have to worry AT ALL about your belongings. Nice breakfast. Bar was cool with comfy sofas and location fantastic - just a short walk to all the action (and easy tram ride to station). Staff were lovely and they lent out laptops for for free internet which was brilliant. We were in a room right next to the bar and kitchen so were a bit worried we'd get no sleep with the loud music, but couldnt hear a thing!! Kitchen IS open (we read somewhere it wasnt) but there is no free skate hire. Instead you get free towels!
