Although at first the hostel was really hard to locate the stay here was a good one. The hostel had a great location and had a good common room. The kitchen is a little sparse and as a result we were eating out a lot but over all good stay.

I booked a month in advance, arrived at 6:30pm to find the door locked and a note saying reception was closed for an hour. I returned about 7 to find the note gone so I tried to open the door but it was still locked, I rang the door bell for about 10 minutes with no success. I then walked... More

this might not be the nicest hostel you ever stay in but for the price and the location you definitely cant go wrong! they didnt mind us coming in a big group either which was great. Could do with another shower ideally.

I booked this room well in advance for a friend who was coming to my wedding in Nottingham. The hostel called her three days before she was due to stay and told her they had double booked. It was a huge inconvenience trying to another room at such short notice, and particularly difficult as there was also a hockey match... More

We stayed 1 night in a shared dorm, the rooms & bathrooms are clean., It was freezing out but nice & warm inside. There are lockers for valuables. Very friendly atmosphere, feels a bit like being in someone's home, always people about in the kitchen & lounge, which I liked. Not as clinical feeling as some hostels. Highly recommend it,... More

9 of us stayed here for 2 nights. 6 of us in one room 3 in another. This was a weekend stay for a clubbing/raving getaway. Good points: Location was very central - the best part of this hostel. Staff were very friendly, relaxed and helpful. Bathrooms/showers were clean enough. Nice communal area, with Playstation 2 (lol) and board games... More

It's been months since I stayed in a hostel with the same quality of friendly staff, excellent location, or welcoming energy. The rooms were clean and everything worked well. The staff was super entertaining and I felt completely amongst friends. I absolutely recommend the midtown hostel.

The showers did not work properly, the internet only works in the common room, and the staff do not respect the privacy of "private" rooms. The one redeeming factor is the Greek restaurant next door to the hostel.

However I would like to inform that the showers are working, and the internet can be access in the second floor also without restrictions. About the privacy in your room, when we need to check a room, we knock in the door. And the... More
