It does what it says on the tin - it's a budget accommodation. So if you're expecting anything other than budget, you'll be disappointed. There was a shared bathroom, perfectly adequate without being sparkling clean. There was tea and coffee making facilities (i.e. a kettle and some tea bags and some uht milk). TV was large. Bed was comfy. Location... More

We have stayed here 3 times now always clean and warm. It's great that it's only a 2 second walk to the gay bars and 5 mins in to the center. It may not 5 star or even 1 star but at that price who cares as long as it's clean.

Having stayed here in one of the flat rooms for an overnight stay in bristol before an interview I was pleasantly surprised at this place. It was clean but looks tired but had a couple of double beds which were comfortable, SKY tv and a 32" flat screen TV which was great and its own kitchen which was fine. I... More

My partner and I needed a cheap place to stay overnight in Bristol, and this one was only £36! I was a bit hesitant, since my last experience with a cheaper place was awful, but I did book it at the end. The place is not the nicest looking from the outside, but hey, it doesn't really count. So we... More

When my friends and I first booked our stay here we were a bit hesitant but needed cheap accommodation. What we were met with was a really pleasant surprise. The 4-bed room we stayed in had been refurbished and was perfect for our needs. It had a small kitchen and shared bathroom facilities. (Remember to take crockery/glasses though if you... More

Have just stayed for one night in the Den Rooms on a Friday night. We were a party of five 30/40 year old ladies. We were absolutely dreading staying here because of the reviews but were relieved when we got our rooms. We had the flat which is self contained and so we didn't have to share with anyone else....

After seeing some of the recent positive reviews I decided to book this place for myself and a couple of friends. All I can think is that the previous reviewers must have extremely low standards when it comes to accommodation. The price was unbelievably cheap - but of course if something seems too good to be true, it usually is.... More

I stayed here for one night - was really surprised. The staff were incredibly friendly, it is immaculately clean and the location great for old market. Would really recommend to anyone visiting for the weekend and much better value than the other cut priced hotels , with much more freedom

Great value for money! Clean! Easy to find! No reception but staff were there two seconds after calling and letting us in! Super friendly! Needed to leave are bags before and they let us pop them in whilst the cleaners were working! Anything we needed we had! Will Deffo stay here again when needing a night in Bristol!

Not bad for one night's stay whilst living on a budget - it was slightly hard to find and I had to ring for assistance when I arrived as there was no reception. The entrance arrangement was a bit strange. However my room was comfortable and clean and there was fresh bread to make toast for breakfast and plenty of... More
