I cannot fault Igloo in anyway. The staff were lovely, the rooms were clean and of a good size. I stayed in a mixed dorm which is capable of sleeping 5 and throughly enjoyed my stay. I was a solo traveler on a budget and the mixed dorm fulfilled my requirements admirably. I was very impressed with the shower room... More

I didn't expect much as there was a very little choice of hostels in Nottingham, but I ended up staying for a night longer. Place is newly refurbished, nicely decorated with paintings on the walls, very clean and comfortable. Great bathrooms, also very clean. Dorm room for 4 people even had tv and a small table with mirrow above. It... More

Stayed here last Saturday night with my family with teenager kids and a little daughter. Never disappointed with the stay as we were all together in a comfortable room with comfy beds. We've been warned that because our room is in the front side of the street, it might be noisy or bit stuffy inside. But there was a fan... More

Incredible hostel! The staff were super friendly, the room was clean and the wi-fi was fast. They even gave us a map with loads of recommendations when we checked in! Also the best and most equipped kitchen I've ever experienced at a hostel, and immaculate bathrooms. The whole hostel has a really nice atmosphere and it's really close to the... More

Think I checked in at 8, got back at 12, and left by 8 the next morning, and even in that time, they made a great impression. Very well-equipped, with kitchen, bathroom as well as fridge and TV in the room. Helpful and friendly staff.

Great. A nice hostel. Staff and genuinely involved clean sleeping areas. place from which the center which ensures peace. However, shops and pub within 200m. Sat in 2nd building across the road. But that is not noticeable in terms of atmosphere. really recommended !!!

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
