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

My experience with hostels has not always been great but the pillows and mattresses were perfect at Igloo and that is the most important for me. the bathrooms were clean and the staff so friendly and helpful. Thank you for a great stay

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

I stayed in this accommodation for two days. My room was okay except a little bad smell. The kitchen was okay,with any instrument to cook. Anyway I think that it's incorrect for a "hostel" hasn't a common room,beyond the kitchen. It seemed more a rent room. However It's a good solution to sleep a couple of nights.

Me and 3 of my friends stayed at the Igloo after watching our team play nottingham forest on good friday. The staff were friendly and helpful and we're quick to ask if we needed any help getting around nottingham etc. The room was great especially for the price, inclusive wifi and TV and most importantly clean! Showers were pleasantly surprising... More

The staff were so lovely and showed us to our room. We had a private 3 bed which was super clean and even had a TV! The bathrooms were fresh too, updated, with a powerful shower. The shared kitchen is really nice and offering free tea and coffee is a nice touch. A lot of essentials are available to buy... More

Beds a bit creaky, but very good showers/bathroom and nice kitchen. The beds were also not too uncomfortable for a 6'5" bloke. Staff extremely friendly, everything was clean, good value for money, we used somebody's milk in the fridge.
