Friendly accommodation in the heart of the Northern Quarter
There was a group of us who stayed for one night in a private dorm room.
The staff were really polite and friendly as were the rest of the people we met who were staying there. We slept very well, the bunk beds were very comfy and the room was airy, I would advise taking ear plugs as the road is quite noisy with traffic early in the morning. Breakfast being included was a real bonus. I would definitely stay here again.
The room was clean with new bedsheets and towels but with some dust.
Bathroom and toilet was clean. Perfect stay.
The location was goo, but room pretty grim.
Worst night sleep I've had...above a bar or ninightclub. Was told car park discount existed on Saturday but then when checking out Sunday that they'd stopped doing it. Mattresses in need of replacing. I've stayed in many hostels and this was the wors, due to noise.
Great place to stay at a great price
Wanted super cheap accommodation in the centre of town for stag night. It was clean and cosy but don't hope the breakfast will sort you out in the morning. Make your own toast didn't quite get rid of the hangover but for £30 each per night, this was fantastic accommodation!
Clean, friendly, basic
The staff were friendly and helpful.
The hostel was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The room itself was ok, nothing special, I couldn't find any electrical sockets near my bunk and there were no lockers of any type in the room. The shower rooms were gender specific which was great, and very clean, although the individual shower cubicles were like big glass boxes so there's no privacy when showering. I'm no supermodel, so was too self conscious to take a shower there - it was a good thing I was only staying one night. The breakfast was very basic, cereal and toast (white bread only) and juice and coffee. The tv lounge was nice but small so often nowhere to sit. The outside area looked like a nice place to sit and chill out in the summer.
Very unpleasant stay
This was the worst hostel I' ve ever stayed at.
It looked nice online but was located at a very dodgy area. The rooms were dirty, not cozy and with no heating so it was really cold. Choosing this hostel was a bad decision since it completely ruined my vacation. I actually spent the last night at the airport since I felt that it was more comfortable over there than at the hostel.
Few days in Manchester
We choose this hostel beacuse of location in the city center, and it was good enough, but room quality and tidiness wasn't worth of its money.
Breakfast, is to big to say. I will think twice before I'll stay in hostel again.
Friendly, good location and facilities
Helpful staff, hostel handy for trains and buses, warm comfy bed.
Everything worked. Space to eat breakfast and helpful to have area with sofas available after check-out time.
four sets of bunks in the room was too many-- three sets would have been better.
no space for suitcases and they were all in the middle of the room. this may have just been the size of this room and other rooms may have been more spacious. staff above and beyond helpful-- swapped my room out for me to a different room that better suited my needs. bathroom sooooooooo clean and newer facilities. big kitchen, well stocked with cooking utensils. pleasant stay.
You get what you pay for, I guess
When I saw some of the pictures and the price I thought it couldn't be as good as it was for the price, but then I realised the rooms I was looking at were a bit more expensive.
I booked a bed in a 4 bed dorm and the price I paid it was actually a good deal. Having not been to Manchester before It took me a while to find it as it wasnt sign posted and my taxi driver drove past it, granted it was 9.15pm and also raining. The Room was basic but I had not expected much for the price and I was in a mixed dorm which confused me as my experience of staying in hostels before was that dorms were single sex only. I had a few ''sets'' of roomates during my stay but they were all friendly and chatty so I guess I can't complain. It was only on the 2nd day of my stay when I realised how close I was to Piccadilly gardens which was good to know as my google maps directions made it out to be waay further away. Overall, It was a good place to stay if you are a tourist and on a budget or a group of friends visiting the local area
