Location - By the harbour front with the strip of bars and restaurants right opposite. Within comfortable walking distance to other sites of interest as well. Room - I was in a 4-bed dorm facing the harbour, an obstructed nice view. Bed's comfortable and room size suitable for 4 people. Bathroom - Clean and spacious. However, neither toilets on our...

I've stayed in many YHA hostels and this definitely has a lot going for it. Very good central location, cheap prices, a small bar and coffee shop open till quite late, spotlessly clean, very comfortable beds and with ample seating on the ground floor and mezzanine. I would have loved to have marked it higher, but there were just a... More

I know it's a hostel and my expectations were suitably modest, but this stay still ranks as a disappointment. Keys not scanned to sync with the paid-for late check-out (effectively forcing us to use the stairs from the 5th floor), extra charges for about everything, sarcastic service staff who seemed unaware that people CAN get a late check-out and are...

Never stayed in a YHA before but a last minute change of travel plans meant I needed an inexpensive room for the night and as I didn't arrive in Bristol until 10pm - thought I'd give this place a try. Booked a bed in a shared dorm (although oddly on arrival was given the room number and a bed number... More

We stayed on a Saturday night in a private room for 2. The room was OK & at the rear of the hostel. We shared a toilet with the rest of the floor, no loo roll or soap available & the loo in the shower room was out of order. At 3am a rowdy group of men arrived in the... More

Spent one night here with a big group of friends. This is a cosy and secure hostel, with excellent communal spaces and a great location. The beds aren't the comfiest but the showers are warm and everything is clean. If you are looking to spend a short stay in Bristol you couldn't really do much better than this hostel.

Me and my brother stayed in Bristol for a concert in the O2 Academy on the 331st of March. We arrived in Bristol early morning and after waiting outside the arena all morning we arrived to YHA at 1:30. Unfortunately our room wasn't ready (We thought Check-in was ! o 'clock) but the staff were lovely and we stayed in... More

This hostal is located on Narrow Quay in Bristol. It is a fantastic location in the heart of the city. There is a buzz around it with so much going on. I stayed at the weekend with 3 other old school pals. This is the second time we have stayed. The time before was five years ago. I am sad... More
