I'm not the typical hostel type having never really backpacked, being older and used to corporate hotel comfort but I stayed at Igloo for one night recently because it looked appealing and I preferred something else than those tacky, unfriendly and expensive motel chains where nobody looks at you. My bed there cost just £22 and with free Wi-Fi... The... More

Me and my brother stayed here while we were at a festival for the night. It is brand new, clean, comfortable, and reasonable. The staff are so helpful and so friendly. I would definitely recommend igloo hostels (Is more like a hotel than a hostel!!!). Thanks for having us.

We stayed here for one night whilst watching the test match at Trent Bridge. No parking was available when we arrived so had to stay on side street. Also had to knock on the reception door for about 10 minutes before they answered. Having said that, we stayed in 2 single rooms and 1 double. The rooms were all spotless... More

I stayed in a double room in the annex so I can't comment on the dorms, but my room was lovely. I travel a lot around the UK, mainly to see bands and this is one of the better hostels! Although there is always an issue with bathrooms especially in a small space, they were better than average and very... More

We only stayed one night but it was a very comfortable one. The room and the bathroom were clean. There is free wifi and the staff is very helpful. Pro: we could park our car in the backyard. We would stay here again.

Didn't love the location -- was in a very residential area and hard for the taxi driver to find -- but it WAS right next to a bus station, which was a huge help. The hostel itself was a bit small, but very clean and the people were friendly and eager to help, circling different locations on a map for... More

There is a bus terminal (The Victoria bus station) with free connecting bus to and from the coach station. 2. Room I stayed in a single room "the... More

Me and a friend stayed here for one night in 'The nest'. Was a very childlike room but the bed was clean and the shared bathrooms were kept clean and tidy also. Can't really ask for much more for the price
