Love the private bunks with curtains and plugs, USB socket and light. Breakfast good, excellent location for Eurostar as basically across the road from Gare du Nord.
Given that there is not much choice in zurich, this hostel was decent. However the focus seems to be on the (great) bar, rather than the hostel facilities. The dorms were very basic. Breakfast is good, coffee made on request is particularly good.
Hostel has great facilities and excellent staff. I had to reorganise my booking due to delayed travel and staff were helpful. Get a bit of a school/sport group vibe though in the common areas, seemed to be a lot of these.
Stayed here for two weeks recently and really enjoyed the atmosphere within the hostel. Great people, great location! Would definitely stay here again when in london. Cosy kitchen is a great place to have a chat after a day sightseeing.
This hostel apparently has 2 entries on hostelworld under slightly different names and different addresses. Flamingo Dluga doubles on Dluga 17 does not exist as it is now just Flamingo Doubles on Podwale 1, both managed by Flamingo Hostel. We booked through the Dluga 17 page and were advised on check in at Flamingo Hostel that this was not the right address, which was inconvenient as we had booked tours with pickup at that address. Staff member not helpful regarding this and seemed confused.
Very friendly staff, great breakfast, awesome location. I was traveling with my mum and booked the apartment- great views from the balcony, kitchen facilities. Sofa bed was very comfy!
