I stayed here for a week and having never been in Bristol before I liked how central it was. When I arrived the staff and guests were nothing but lovely! I was travelling by myself for the first time and being there made me feel more at ease. Don't think I could fault the place one bit! Would definitely come... More

0/10 too much bowl, not enough rock. barely any 'n. Netherlands are way better. get on our level. Strange isn't it? giving such a comment on a 'excellent' rating. Well that was a friend of mine who wrote that down, and he's from Hawaii. So, yeah, there's your explanation. Anyway, I absolutely loved my stay here. I stayed in for... More

The stay was great, apart from the fact that you couldn't stay in the communal areas after you had checked out which was quite annoying since I only checked in at 11.30pm the day before and wasn't scheduled to leave Bristol till 8.30pm on the day of check out

Stayed in this hostel a few days ago as a pitstop to see the city on our way to Devon. Paid £12 each for a bed in a 20share dorm room and couldnt complain at all. Hostel itself is fairly basic but is clean and has everything you could possibly need. Large communal area with sockets, sofas, tvs and smoking... More

I used this hostel for a night out with some friends in Bristol and we didn't want to stay in a hotel because we didn't think we would actually be there very much. The hostel was really good value - comfy beds, great showers, good friendly service. Couldn't be much better for a quick cheap stay

Its a very nice place to stay in Bristol. I stayed in a share room for two nights and it was was I need until finding something else. It is possible to stay there for a long time, and the kitchen is very good organizated, so you can bring your own food and cook as you were at home.

Excellent location, confortable beds, had a good sleep despite the room being shared with 3 people with different time schedules but careful not to disturb. Pity you can't take your pint of cider to drink with your pizza

Great hostel for young people, great for the price. Definitely recommended. Staff seemed nice, good places to play ping-pong, relax, get some work done or just chill out. Large kitchen with seating as well. Can't ask for anymore for the price!

Motel stands for motor hotel yet nowhere to park and the main secure car park was about 25quid a night. The staff however where very friendly and the site of which the area was great as just a dander to shops and pubs. :)
