A great quirky little hostel, within 5 minutes walk from Birmingham New Street and in easy reach on the Bull Ring. Clean and Tidy, simple things such as the Bath Mats were changed everyday show the level of care that the hostel takes. The breakfast was simple but was enough to get you going. At £13.00 a night this hostel... More

The people working there were kind and helpful apart from everything else which was from poor to terrible. The male receptionist even carried my friends' luggage upstairs without being asked to do so. And the location is 2, 3 minutes away from the coach station.

Despite the location and area, its the best hostel in Birmingham. There are not many hostels in Birmingham so this is the best i've come across and stayed at. Although its quite a walk to city centre its worth the money, if you staying for an overnight or a few nights. Located opposite Birmingham coach station and right next to... More

Just for staying overnight, and found the location here quite good. Only 5 mins walk from the coach station. It's central and very quite as well. The bed was soft and comfortable, had a very good rest. And I like the design of its walls-- colourful and warm.

We traveled to Birmingham for the Hanson show at the HMV institute (www.hanson.net). The location was ideal, but proper parking/lighting would be welcomed for our next visit. More private rooms would be ideal too; we would of gladly paid extra

Location is good. Cleanliness, decor, security and parking rubbish!!! Don't expect clean sheets. Beds are not allocated so people sleep where they please. Parking as advertised??? Don't bet on getting a space in the overcrowded garage. Overall worse place iv ever stayed.

Really in line with the price paid for the staying. If you go on the weekend, remember to not go to bed before 4 am because the discotheque on the other side of the neighborhood will enter in you room.
