small but bearable
5 of us shared a 3 bunk bed room, was due to be 6 of us but luckly some one dropped out.
there was not enough room for luggage on the floor so the empty bed was used for storage space,
room was clean an beds comfy. showers were a let down, they did not drain so water ever where, power showers were very good tho. shame drainage did not work. good location for city center
OK for what it is, a hostel
NOTE: the hostel is undergoing redevelopment (possibly because of all the previous terrible reviews).
This isn't an overly pretty place to stay, it's not overly quiet but it is a hostel, not a hotel.
The room was clean enough, bed clean (albeit very squeaky). Everyone was given an individual key but annoyingly there was nowhere in the room the securely lock personal items away.
Front desk were very friendly and helpful on arrival, the guy was chatty and welcoming. Leaving not so helpful and chatty but they were polite. There was a lot of dirt and dust everywhere but as stated this was due to the renovation works. Previous reviews are a tad too OTT on the moaning stakes. After all, £22 a night for a bed and communal bathroom is hardly too much to as for is it. As a last minute booking Id recommend it. The location is perfect if you're going to the arena!
I decided to get a private room for two since there were a few gentlemen acting dodgy.
I paid in full for the room in the morning, only to be told that it was double booked and the online booking was a priority over me even though they booked after!. They told me to basically pack my bags and leave!!. Lady at reception was rude and didn't have any sympathy!. A few other people were in the same position and once again no solutions found. Don't go unless you're looking at for a piss take.
My stay at Ashton Hostel
I have seen many negative comments about Ashton Hostel, but what a bunch of moaners.
What'd ya expect for £22 a night!. The Hylton. As for myself, I can only compliment the VERY friendly reception staff. Lovely girls. The rooms are basic, but for the price, it's cool...All I needed was a warm, clean bed, and thats exactly what I got..Nice clean bed, snug and warm, and kitchen facilities are basic..fridge, microwave and kettle in shared kitchen (so take your food snacks with you). But short of pitching up a tent in the local park, you won't find anywhere cheaper for a weekend in Manchester, and I will defo be staying there again..So stop yer moaning you bunch of miserys and get real. I have stayed in hotels all over the world, inc:4-5 star, and so I know the difference between luxury accomodation and basic...so for £22 a night, you can't go wrong!
Paper thin walls
Ashton House Hostel
Hotel was clean and secure.
staff were helpful. didnt like having to share a kitchen with the dorm guests. own rooms should have tea coffee etc.
Was absolutely disgusting, me and my wife ended up leaving, after having a look round, this is definitely health and safety procedures gone wrong,
Bad sanitary facilities
The room was just bed within 4 walls, but that was OK.
The room itself was clean and with no problems. I liked the old-style. The problem were sanitary facilities: Toilets were old and stinky and showers were bit moldy. I hope the upcoming refurbishment that was taking place during our stay will make the Ashton House a better place. On the other hand, I must compliment the willingness and kindness of employees. They were great. Summary: In UK, I was to better places for less money spent. In Manchester, it would be better to pay some extra quid for better accommodation elsewhere. If you need just the bed and roof above your head for few days, the place is OK.
If all you want is a bed for the night in Manchester, this is a great place
We stayed here for one night on Friday 12th December.
9 of us stayed in a 10-bed dormitory and it worked out at less than £15 per person..... Great location, just a couple of minutes walk from Victoria Station. Yes, the room wasn't immaculately clean (although the bedding was fine) and, yes, the whole place is a bit run down but the staff were very helpful before and during our stay and we would definitely book here again if we needed to stay over following a future Manchester night out. What do you want for the price. It does the job.
No heating in the hotel slept in the cold TB avoided dirty full off damp and not female friendly
boiler broke no heating and no alternative Too much damp & humidity window condensation.
No view out of the windows
Not very clean either
Not female friendly. My girlfriend told me males would repetitively walk in the female toilet and say oops sorry, she had only spend few minutes in the toiled.
