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

I have already gone to different hostels in UK. but this one is the cleanest, quietest, smallest that i've ever seen. TV inside the rooms, clean toilets and showers for one person, full equiped kitchen... Located in the center of notthingham, Amazing.

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.

This is a great hostel! We traveled with our 11 month son and an another couple. The staff was friendly upon arrival, provided us with a map of the city and recommended some things to do/places to eat. The pub across the street offers 25% of food when you show them your room key; however under 18s are not allowed... More

Being a member of the YHA I was at first a little dubious about staying in an independent hostel and didn't know what to expect, however my anxiety was short-lived on arrival. The reception for check-in/out is a couple of doors up the road from the actual rooms and you have to be buzzed in. My room was ready so... More

This hostel is clean, fairly quiet and near the city. However, upon booking a private double room we had thought we weren't getting 'hostel' service. There was no hairdryer in the room, we couldn't check in till three (despite having to then check out at ten!). The receptionist was somewhat friendly.

The hostel was great. The staff were very friendly and informative, giving me plenty of information on things to do and see in Nottingham. Facilities were clean and the kitchen well equipped. The hostel was in a good location for getting into the centre of Nottingham and was very close to the bus station.
