This was my first time in a hostel as all I wanted was a bed for the night and I didn't want to pay loads for a hotel. Rock n' Bowl came up and I was a little dubious as I'd never stayed in a hostel before. I was pleasantly surprised. Friendly welcome from the staff; the room and general... More

It's your typical backpacker hostel (possibly a bit nicer.) No frills, but certainly great value for £14... it's especially good if you're the type that likes to meet other people, as the kitchen and common room seemed to be constant hives of activity and people are generally quite friendly. It does stay noisy until quite late (and that's midweek as... More

We are there for a start to living and working in Bristol. Hostel is in city centre, and there is lot of opportunities. Nice bars, cafes, shoping centres. Hostel was always clean, many showers and toilets. Nice chilling room.

Me and my partner stayed for one night in the 20-bed dormitory. The facilities are great, with a big shared kitchen/mess room, and another big room with a sofas, TV, table tennis, and desks for working on. The dormitory room was very tidy and the sheets were very clean. The only downside to our visit was that we were staying... More

I only stayed in this hostel one night so didnt spend much time there. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean and comfortable. The games room looked great and the kitchen looked like it had everything you would need (though could have been a little cleaner). Great Location and free wifi! The only downside was the noise at night from... More

This hostel is situated right in the City center and is quite easy to find. It was very basic, but clean and well organised, especially the security. I only stayed for one night, but as a woman,traveling on her own, I felt safe when I stayed there. The staff were very helpful, and made it easy to settle in. I... More
