I booked Igloo through the Laterooms website because my partner and I had a gig to go to in Nottingham City centre and all the hotels appeared to be very pricey. I booked a double room for the two of us not really knowing what to expect. I've stayed in hostels when back packing abroad but never in this Country.... More

I have been in this hostel this week. It is very clean and nice. The staff is very gentle and available for everything. Services very clean for an hostel. The position is comfortable, very close to Market Square and main facilities of the city centre. I would reccomend to everybody to spend a night in this hostel. See ya

Overall we had a pleasant stay. In hindsight I wish we paid the couple of quid more and got one of the recently refurbished room because ours felt a bit dingy. Clean, but dingy. The kitchen was nice and clean. My biggest gripe was with the toilet/shower to guest ratio. It took quite a bit of queuing in the morning... More

Worst impression ever - they charged my card PLUS AN EXTRA FEE NOT MENTIONED ANYWHERE ON HOSTELBOOKERS OR THEIR WEBSITE before I even left home to drive to Nottingham! Disgusting business practice, as if the £20 CASH deposit (MORE THAN THE COST OF THE ROOM FOR ONE NIGHT) wasn't extortionate enough! I've never, ever had this happen at any other... More

Clean room with good amenities! We came to Nottingham for a girls weekend away and the room was perfect for us we stayed in the five bedroom room which had a couple of bunk beds and a single and it was excellent! Best hostel I have stayed in for a while.

Clean rooms, lovely modern bathrooms and kitchen. All you need for a night's stay with friends. And best value we found too! Reception lady & guy were very very helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend.

Normally I'm not an annoying person but I didn't feel comfortable at this hostel, maybe because of the rooms quite small, maybe because of the smell of the incense that made me drunk, or because I wasn't able to use the shower (my fault). I think it was too expensive for the service offered.

We arrived in January for a quick night out in Nottingham, the accommodation didn't disappoint and even my friends who are not used to staying in similar places were surprised by the quality. We had a huge room which we could all relax in before going into town which takes around 15 minutes or so to get to.

Pro: Room looked clean and not bad. Shared kitchen is kept clean and is nicely fitted. Morning staff member from France cleaned very well, was hard work and was kind. Bathroom is clean. Against: Need for photo identification not just booking email receipt. Why photo is needed unless you suspect hacking emails or something. Felt awkward from start. Problem with... More

You can get all the amenities and that too at a really reasonable rate. It is well connected to the city, and really close to Victoria Bus station. And most importantly, the staff is very friendly and helpful. Hope to visit it again ;)
