My partner and I spent two months in the hostel while we were looking both for a job and a flat. The overall sensation about the hostel is great. We stayed in the second floor in a six-bedroom room. The other people in the room were quite nice and very respectful as well. Everything was cleaned in a daily basis... More

A lot of people coming to Bristol for work tend to end up here which makes it more of a communion rather than a backpackers as people stay for the long haul rather than a few nights. it can get frustrating with large groups but most people tend to know when you want to be left alone and will normally...

We stayed here for around 3 weeks after our flatting situation turned sour. We spent all but 3 nights in a private room. The room was really small, but it was clean, the beds were comfortable, and it had a radiator to cancel out the slightly draughty window. For a private room you can get a key for £10 refundable...

I loved this hostel, is so big and so British. They have room for everything, tv room, lounge room, full kitchen, and a bar at the basement! The beds are really spaced and comfortable. The staff is very nice and helpfully. Also the door is controlled at the entrance of people strange to the hostel, so they give you a... More

Clean bathrooms, showers and rooms. I spent one month at Bristol backpackers while looking for a house in Bristol. Excellent location, nicer than other backpackers in town, but still gets a bit of noise at night from the street. Really accommodating staff.

It is misleading to call this a backpackers hostel as it is almost entirely a hostel for Spanish workers and students. It is filthy, the kitchen often crowded, bedbugs are an ongoing problem which the management will not deal with. 24 hour access but staff off duty at 11 so many strangers allowed access. Theft is a problem, as is... More

I stayed here with a friend for a last minute weekend away. We didn't actually spend much time there but we found the dorms and facilities to be clean, the beds comfy and the staff helpful. The location is great for a night out on the waterfront and being a five minute walk from the ferry service it was also... More

I stayed here for 2 nights (Saturday & Sunday) as I was visiting Bristol to get a very expensive tattoo but didn't want to spend any more money than I had to. At £16 per night, I couldn't complain! The hostel was right in the city centre, close to all transport links & shops. I didn't do any sightseeing unfortunately.... More
