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

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

Having visited Bristol a handful of times I didn't know what to do in the city but after a chat with the staff I came away with lots of information and helpful suggestions. The rooms are clean and made for a comfortable nights sleep. As an added bonus there is also a lively pub attached to the hostel which has... More

This hostel exceeded my worst dreams. If you're looking for a place to sleep, you're better off on a bench in a park. There's a club downstairs which runs until after 2 in the morning. Which basically means you're in for a party right inside your room. Opposite the street there's another club which provides the great afterbeat. The only... More

Hi there! Prior to booking it is clearly stated on our website and through Hostelworld and Hostelbookers that we are in a very vibrant area and have a popular and busy bar downstairs, especially over weekends, many agree this is in fact what makes their stay so memorable. Apologies that it wasn't what you were looking for. Kind Regards, The... More

Hi there and sorry about the negative aspects of your stay - as mentioned prior to the booking process The Full Moon is a lively place at the weekends and an important fixture in Bristol's vibrant alternative nightlife and music scene, after the bar closes at 2 the staff encourage everyone to respect sleeping guests and our neighbours by keeping...

Blood stains on the bedding was minimal. There were no bedbugs. Report Bed Bugs immediately. Don't leave bread in the lockers in the common room as it will grow a thick layer of mould over time. Only minor flecks of blood on the bedding.
