Good value and location

I needed cheap and central accommodation which is what I got.

It was a little noisy but not enough to bother me too much. If you are a sensitive sleeper then maybe it wouldn't be for you.

Got what I paid for.

This was my first stay in a hostel & will probably be my last.

Really missed the privacy most that ensuite provides but for what I paid - £18 for 1 night -have no real complaints.

Stayed here for 1 night as we were going to a music event, which happened to be in the club downstairs.

The hostel common rooms ard spacious with plenty of seating. Smoking balcony overlooks the club courtyard So you get a great vibe. As a consequence some of the rooms can be noisy. No facilities in the rooms but beds were very comfortable. Check out by 12 which was great as as its not easy packing with a hangover. . Top place to stay on a budget. Will definitely use again.

not going back nor will recommend

the staff is really friendly, toilet slightly below average...spacious communal area provided with books and board games...

in general, the accommodation give us an insecure feeling.(there is a no drugs sign in the toilet which we have never seen it in the toilet in other hostels)...there was loud music from pub next door at midnight...which sucks because we planned to sleep early and walk around bristol in the morning...however we end up too tired and didnt see much...

Good hostel accomodation

I stayed in a four bed mixed dormitory with one other male occupant.

There are definitely no frills here but the accommodation was clean, comfortable and it worked for me. Security was adequate but a padlock would secure the under-bed locker. Showers were great, located on the next floor up. Entry to other areas is by crypt-tag encoded for your room. I was informed prior to making the booking that this was located in a student area and was pre-warned about the noise. I accordingly took ear plugs so this didn't present a problem. Staff were very helpful. Whilst it would be wrong of me to recommend this hostel to all-comers it represents good value accommodation to those who are prepared to accept hostel life.
