Having stayed here for 2 nights, we were not expecting much considering the price we paid. But was not expecting to be checking out covered in bed bugs, around ankles, arms and face!! 4 days on the bites are still showing. I immediately emailed the hostel requesting a reply on the issue, but heard nothing back. Not the cleanest, best... More

Hi there - we're extremely sorry you had such a negative experience - we take any reports of bed bugs extremely seriously and this is the first one we've had in a long time. We undergo a regular fumigation by pest control services as well as using other methods to keep track of any sign of activity or an outbreak.... More

My band embarked on an eighteen date UK tour back in August. We stayed at a number of hostels around the country in that time, but I have to say this was by far the best place. The staff were very welcoming and really friendly. All five members of our band shared a room which was very spacious. The beds... More

This is the worst hostel that I have ever stayed in. We expected some noise in the evening as it is in a lively part of the town, but as we were there to party ourselves thought it did not matter too much. However, 7am on Sunday morning, the music was STILL playing. We did not sleep at all! Lots... More

If you are thinking of getting the double bed do not do it, you will find better on air bnb and for cheaper. Make sure you are tired or you will not be able to sleep. Stayed here early November. You will feel every spring the probably 20 year old mattress that may have been purchased from one of the... More

Full Moon is a great Hostel, but it's not for everyone. I had a fantastic time there, but you have to understand that it is situated above a bar, next to another bar, and across from a night club. It's one of the most popular places to be on the weekend, so if you're looking for a good night's sleep... More

This hostel is at a great location for exploring Bristol. The staff was freindly and the factilites were great. Having a pub on site was handy although not serving breakfast on a sunday morning was a shame. The rooms were very basic but clean! There are only 2 toilets and 1 sink to share between the whole floor so this... More

I've stayed in a lot of hostels over the years and this is unfortunately the worst I've experienced. I wasn't expecting miracles as the price I paid was very cheap, but I wasn't impressed. The private room was admittedly quite large but definitely hadn't been vacuumed, everything looked and felt dirty, stained walls, carpets, uncomfortable bed. The toilets were pretty... More

We spend a night here on the 5th oct2014 as we came from barry to watch a band. Being of a certain age, a hostel wasnt somewhere i thought i would stay. I have to say we booked a double room instead of a dorm and wat a fab surprise it was. The room was spacious and had a fab... More

The full moon is, quite simply, the centre of Bristol's nightlife. Right between stokes Croft and the city centre it's in a prime location and one of the best venues around. Staying here is really, really good fun if you're looking to explore, meet new people and party.. For a quiet relaxed night it's maybe not the best, but that's... More
