Good friendly hostel great chill place to hang and meet people, if you don't mind paying 5-10 euros more a night for this place it's decent for your money.

The hostel is between voldenoark and the museum area, With this location you can see at least half of "the dam" best attractions. The staff was always kind and cool. Great music in the bar area, we had a lot of fun. It's a perfect place eho wants to meet with new people and feels like on your home. Highly reccomended

I had an awesome stay at this hostel, was only a quick stop and wished I had longer. Would defiantly recommend this place. Had heard about it from loads of friends from oz and just loved it. Wicked vibe apart from the guy that did magic in the smoke room. loved it. Staff were brilliant. place was clean.

Legit bar, friendly staff

I liked the vibe of the hostel and the communal areas in particular. As I mentioned to the manager, the potential of the bar could be even further realised with pub quiz nights, for example. The staff were very helpful. Room 32 had some problems -a few sockets/lights not working, nowhere to lay anything down, mildly frustrating lockers, no sink. There's a large space in the corner which could do with a small table and/or chair to help. Room 35, in contrast, was a lot easier to work with.

Good location, nice staff and breakfast ok. But showers and bathrooms really dirty and stinky, the sink in the bedroom also had a terrible smell. The entire hostel smells like pot and you cannot open the windows because of the noise (not even in the middle of the day, when there is no noise). Showers were boiling or freezing, you could not have it middle term. Would not recommend. Really dangerous stairs also. Breakfast really late, only starts at 8h30.

I was a bit disappointed in this hostel. I had previously stayed at the Uptown and loved it. Much like the Uptown, it has a great atmosphere. However, I stayed in a 10 person dorm, and there was only one outlet in the entire room. Overall though, it's a great place, definitely stay there if you are looking for a good time.

How come there were no hot water when i took a shower in the morning? you have a big hostel with lots of paying costumers and lots of room, so you need to have a bigger boiler for the shower water..

Hi there, Thank you very much for your feedback. We can learn a lot from your experience with us. We are very sorry the shower on your floor was not working properly, we had plummers in two weeks ago so the problem should be solved, thanks for mentioning. Hope to see you again! Cheers, The Flying Pig Uptown

Overall good hostel. Not too far from the center if you rent a bike. No wifi in the rooms, you have to go to the bar which is a pain. Breakfast included!

Everyone on the same floor sharing one small toilet. Toilet is unbelievably small, not enough room to move even in the slightest. Need to pay for a lock for lockers.. should be included. But the breakfast was enjoyable.
