Really nice hostel. Nice and quiet and in a great location. Could do with a bit of work for example the toilet seat was cracked and the paint needed re doing but would def recommend this hostel. Really loves that it was on the docks and super close to town.

Hey, it was such a great experience even though the lift didn't function properly. The staff were so friendly and we enjoyed our stay there so much we would definitely recommend to a friend. The rooms were really clean and we made the best of friends. #lessoldpeople #morewifi #plentymorefishintheseaforme #goodbyemyfriend #WeAreTheUndatables #sorryaboutthebread xxx

Worst hostel I've ever stayed! The place is nice, nice installations and stuff, but the treatment was a shame. I stayed there with two friends, they separated me from them because they don't mix male and female, but I was surprised when I entered my room and there was a man in there!!! So I went to the reception and... More

When I checked In I advised the staff member that I had booked on hostel world, I then produced my YHA membership card and he... More

at first: the is a very friendly staff, helpful at any time.. I did have no problems at all, the cycle shed is OK with pump located, beds (sadly the lights on beds din´t work), rooms and food is good, showers are a bit tatty - but last not least: stunning location

First, beware this hostel can be very difficult to find even though their advertising proudly claims signposting "from the city center". It IS in the city center itself, but Bristol is a large city designed on a large scale and in my case the signposting proved totally inadequate. That having being said, the location right by a canal is clearly... More

Hi there, Thank you for the review. I am very sorry our hostel was not up to your standards. We signpost from around Bristol as it is quite large, and most guests find it quite helpful when trying to find us. If you are a YHA member then you get a discounted prices so we do suggest this for most... More

I booked the Conference Room for my 70th birthday party on the Sunday before Christmas. There were around 30 members of my extended family ranging in age from 1 to 83. Two of the senior cousins stayed at the special offer rate, as did 6 of the younger ones. The weekend had a flaky start when there was a muddle... More

Hostel itself is very stylish and modern. The room I stayed in was perfectly clean, very spacious and had our own en-suite facilities - which was perfect! The location the hostel is in is perfect, you just have to step outside and you're in the heart of bristol. Stunning views surrounding the hostel (albeit not from my room!), however gave... More
