a very central location, ideal for our night out in the Fleece music venue about 10minutes walk away. On arrival the receptionist was very polite, showing us into our room [the double]. The room was basic but had all we needed - bed, clean bedding, towels, kettle/teabags, etc. We got the discount Rays pizza delivered up to us in the... More

The bedrooms are very dirty, there are waste everithing. Also there'is a terrifying stench and humidity are extremely. Also the heater don't work. In common space guests don't keep clean , specially spanish guys like cook for us and they friends and after don't clean nothing. It's better sleep under a bridge.

Hi Fabio, thanks for the feedback, it's quite surprising to read your review after your long stay here. We didn't have the chance to listen to any kind of complaint during your stay but it will motivate us to better understand why a guest that prefer to sleep under the bridge stayed with us for 3 long weeks.

I was studying in Bristol and needed somewhere cheap and close to the city centre for 6 weeks. The rock n bowl ticked all the boxes, close to cabbot circus where I was able to park my car for £2 a night. Perfect venue with extremely friendly staff Thank you

Some of the most comfortable dorm beds I've slept in. Friendly staff that go out of their way to help you out and make your stay as comfy as possible. A great place to meet interesting people. Sociable environment with a ping pong table and comfy sofas to relax on. Would highly recommend!

This hostel is in a good location and is filled with lots of friendly people. It isn't the cleanest but the people staying in it will make up for that! The lounge and kitchen can be really busy at times because there isn't enough couches or seats so plan your meals ahead. And if you do choose to buy groceries... More
