First and foremost, I know this is a hostel, but I feel I little let down about the quality of the room. For a start we weren't based in the main hostel building, but next door where building work was going on between 8am and 5pm, very loudly. This also meant that there were zero facilities in our building and... More

I've stayed at Hatters a few times, and it's always been a pleasent experience. I usually get 1 bunk in an 8 people female dorm, and I've never had any complaints at all about it. This time round I was under a little bit more of a budget, so I got the cheapest option, which was 1 bunk in a... More

Hatters Hostel was okay for a one night stay with friends. We got one bedroom with two bunk beds for me and my four friends however the lighting was very dim and hardly much space to move around. The bathroom was small but the shower was nice. The hostel had a lot of activities and drinking games, however, we did... More

Construction work starts at 8 am (drilling... better forget about sleep). No one told us that before or after we booked or before we did the check in. Advertised "Gameroom" and "pool table" are not available. Booked a 12 bed room deluxe bed as advertised. Actually it is a 24 bed room. Heaters doesn`t really work. Can`t recommend it. Maybe... More

All we wanted was accommodation that was cheap, warm and clean. All the facilities we needed was a shower and a toilet. If you want cheap digs and there's a group of you, go to hatters. We didn't bother with the breakfast although it was included. It did get quite noisy in the night but I feel it was down... More

I stayed there for 2nights, rooms and cleaning was OK, WiFi available everywhere, provided with TV room and coffee rooms. The only bad point was that where people have their coffee and tea was a bit dirty, but this is caused from people and not from hostel staff. I've definitively been in a lot of worse places than this

Stayed in 6 bed ensuite mixed dorm whilst volunteering at badminton. Long hours meant really could do with good nights sleep. Didn't get due to noisy room mates and 2 bus loads of 'cattle' running around the corridors. Like other reviews I was given no info on check out. I actually had to ask how to get to my room!...

Me and my friend had a great weekend in Birmingham staying at Hatters. We arrived 2 nights earlier than booked but thanks to the friendly and helpful staff at the reception everything worked out. I think in terms of meeting nice people and enjoying a good atmosphere Hatters is the right choice. The public areas (kitchen, TV lounge and PC... More
