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

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
