I work as a hotel manager & rather than pay silly money to stay in branded hotel chain I paid half to stay here for one night. I paid £49 for a twin room. There are no frills just a room with bunk beds. There was communal bathrooms, toilets, kitchen & lounge. Possibly he coolest thing was the bowling alley... More

The warnings about noise from the club underneath should definitely be taken into account when booking here. My first night stay I must have gotten around an hour sleep (despite booking a private room) The bass from the club was basically shaking the room, even ear plugs didn't completely drown it out. The reception I think needs more people on,... More

We took a group of students to Bristol and stayed at the Rock and Bowl. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean. Great location for access to city centre shopping and theatres. Beyond Rock and Bowls control was the demolition of a building next door which (thanks to Bristol City Council) went on until 2.30 in the morning.... More

I am here with a group of students visiting Bristol for a theatre trip. It's 23.52, the club downstairs is going full volume and the bass is reverberating through my room. Ear plugs are no defence. There was no reference to this on the website. There is demolotion happening outside my window... I am pretty tolerant but this is Hell...

We are really sorry about your experience. About the demolition outside, it's something decided from the city council, so not under our control and we are sorry for this temporary trouble. About the loud music, is written on our website - terms and condition page -, that our club has music till late, and we are sorry if you had... More

Very good location in the City, nice people, very helpful staff, the rooms were small but clean and warm. Maybe some problem to sleep due to the bar under the hostel, but very good service. I will repeat next time

The hostel is situated right in the city centre, so it's an ideal place for someone who comes for the first time in Bristol. Rooms are quite comfortable and common space are wide. All the structure is furnished with free wi-fi. The crew members are nice and friendly, and the level of cleanliness is normal, not perfect but the same... More

I read the reviews before booking and thought "Ok, so this is a backpackers on the top of a nightclub, I have been to similar places before". But NO. The noise was ok (noisy but could sleep), probably my room wasn't one of the worst (on 2nd floor). The real problem was the total lack of hygiene!!!! The showers were... More
