This hostel was a good price and a good location in Nottingham! I stayed in the annexe part, and the bed and pillows were SO comfy. Also the wifi was perfect never had a problem. The only downside was the very very steep stairs leading up to the room I was not prepared for! Was quite hard to carry up... More

The staff keep the place clean daily,but, I do have a few minor complaints. The tea towels in the kitchen could... More

This hostel deserves a review, as it was absolutely fantastic! I came with two people and we chose the private 3 share room in the brand new Annexe. The art work on the walls is AWESOME, and all of the beds were SO COMFORTABLE, better than most hotels! The room was also absolutely huge, it was really clean and for... More

The room was large and comfy and the hostel itself which is situated in central Nottingham was very easy to find. The staff were very friendly as were the other... More

I had a great stay at Nottingham! I went to the NIN concert and found plenty of people in the hostel who went there, too. Met nice people in the kitchen... The room was very big and comfy, bathrooms are great, hot water all day. Also, the staff is very nice and I checked in after midnight, no problem.

All is new and very well organised. My room was very big and the possibility to use a shared kitchen very useful. Easy to reach, people very friendly, attention to ecological themes. The mattress was excellent: memory foam (better than in my home!)
