The kitchen area was also clean and there was coffee, tea, milk... More

I'd made a reservation and this was confirmed by email but when I arrived there was no record of this, luckily there was a bed available. The staff were relaxed (possibly too relaxed!) friendly and helpful and there was a secure place to lock up my bike. There were an lot of bunks crammed into a small space in the... More

We had a private twin room and it was very comfy - ensuite with clean bathroom and tea and coffee making facilities which was a nice touch. There was a... More

Booked for one night stay with mates.. Horrific is the best way to describe the experience! Rooms stink, toilets dirty, beds disgusting. Worse than the hovel of a hostel was the staff...rude and of ignorant. Don't think we'll return!

I paid £25 for private use of a twin bedded room with ensuite facilities (with no breakfast) which is fair value for a room reasonably close to the city centre, the canal, the river and the city walls. The room itself was OK - nothing special but clean. The bathroom was OK - on the small side with a tiny... More

Stayed here on Saturday night with my boyfriend for one night. We wanted a cheap bed to stay in so we could have a few drinks and enjoy the night. Room was £45 for a double with ensuite - a real bargain for Chester city centre in June! Found free parking by the river Dee as we arrived at around... More
