My boyfriend and I stayed here while visiting a friend in Bristol. We were not looking for anything plush or romantic, just a stopover after a night out drinking. The Full Moon backpackers hostel was a bargain, the staff were friendly and it served us for what we required, which was essentially a bed for the night. The place was... More

Only stayed here one night with my partner and really enjoyed the hostel. We didn't use the kitchen and common room so can't comment on them. We stayed in the twin room with em suit... Brilliant room! Wasn't noisy as expected (it's right next to the courtyard). Maybe at the weekends it's noisy. The en suit was massive and shower... More

Very poorly run hostel with little to no security at all. All three members of our party had to swap beds every night, with no warning from the hostel. They would return to the hostel and find someone else in their bed and their personal belongs unpacked and strewn across the floor of the bedroom. More than once during the... More

Staff was extremely friendly. I've stayed in other hostels that have had bars, which made the staff care less about its hostel occupants. The Fullmoon staff care a lot however! Great vibe about the place too- lifeaffirming art, cozy commons room, spacious and furnished kitchen, and a plethora of outlets!

To begin with, we couldn't check in for half hour because the lady on the reception didn't know how to turn the computer on. When it finally happened, she surprised us further by not knowing the password to log on to computer - neither did any other member of staff who was on site that evening. The password was written...

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
