I've been there for 3 days, first day I lived in double room. the left I lived in quarter room. very peaceful circumstances and very fully functional facilities. downside: if you haven't brought your slippery, it's not convenient for you take a shower. Some labels should be marked significantly.

The staff were pleasant and helpful, the location is great as it is located bang in the centre and the communal spaces are a reasonable size; there is a decent space for cooking and socialising. My bed had clean sheets and there was ample storage for my bags. There is also free wifi which is accessible in both communal spaces... More

Was at the heart of the centre, located near the city centre. Many shops, restaurant is located nearby. The staff were friendly. There were lots of bathroom, toilets and the kitchens were very big. The place was very safe, with very good location spot!

I didn't expect the motel to be this good, especially for £ 15 per night. There is a big kitchen and a hall with sufficient spaces to sit and work with free wifi access. The internet speed was good. (not very good for streaming videos though) The bathrooms and toilets were clean, but make sure you take your own toiletries... More

The location is great and staff are really friendly. Kitchen is well equipped and bathrooms are clean. The room smelled really musty and we had difficulty sitting inside the room, since apart from the smell, the other occupants (7 of 10 beds) were asleep for a good 20 hours. The linen was clean and bed comfortable, however it did get... More

Smelly rooms and very noisy due to the nextdoor bar. Very nice employees. Friendly atmosphere!!! Cheep hostel, very big kitchen and good bathrooms. I recommend this hostel but it is very noise. If you do not want to have party I do not recommend it.

Booking in advance for the weekends!! The place is very cute and tidy, you will feel in Bristol as son as you come in, fulled of graffiti. The kitchen has all the stuff you will need, the wiffi works in the whole buidling, the bathrooms and showers are fine too. Definitily good value for money. The recepcionists are so kind... More

Rock 'n' Bowl is the best located hostel in Bristol for me, both for guests who want to have fun and for those who came here in business or to work. The service is very open, helpful and make no problems with any enquires you have (of course the reasonable ones). The negative aspect is sleeping time, but it is... More

The staff was Nice and the location okay. These were the only positive things. It was dirty, extremely noisy and the smell was horrible. As if the windows had not been opened for months. I spend a really bad night.

Hi Manoon , we are really happy for your words on staff and location. We are sorry if you noticed an unusual smell during your stay, we are actually refurbishing the carpet, in the last days our historical building has been so naked as to be able to express all his pungent past! Two days more and it will smell... More
