Lonely Planet review
Hang out with hundreds of young, dope-smoking backpackers at this very relaxed, massive 250-bed hostel. It's a bit grungy, but no one seems to mind, especially when there's so much fun to be had in the throbbing lobby bar, which has a pool table and occasional DJs. There's also an indoor smoking area, full-service kitchens and a cushion-lined basement nicknamed the 'happy room'.
Rates include a continental breakfast.
Our independent authors have visited Flying Pig Downtown and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Medieval Centre & Red Light District.
Description provided by property
The Flying Pig Downtown is conveniently located next to Central Station! In the two minute walk from Central Station to the hostel you will find a lot of restaurants, pubs, red lights and shops, so you can see that you will not be stuck for things to do when you stay here.
In the hostel you will find many friendly guests which you can quickly get to know when you play some pool in the bar, chill-out on the pillows in the pillow area; relax in the smoking area or when you are cooking yourself a meal. Our bar is also a great place to make friends. We have a DJ to keep you entertained and get you up dancing and the bar is open until 4am every night, serving cheap beer. We also have an area where you can sit back and watch some movies for free. We also have a book exchange.
We are located on the busiest street in the city. Here you will find a lively nightlife with a variety of clubs, pubs and coffee-shops to choose from.
