Lovely little place, extremely polite staff and had a really good nights sleep whilst working in Derby. Recommend :-) bedding was clean although there was no sugar or milk for a brew, swings and roundabouts

I stay here a lot whilst working in Derby, and it suits me great. Very economical on the wallet, and has all the facilities I need whilst here:- kettle, iron, shower, fridge, microwave, freeview TV, free WiFi and car park. Warmer rooms would be nice, but other than that I don't really have any issues for the price.

Basic, clean, did what it said on the tin, Owner could do with brushing up on his English but that's about it really! Showers were clean, toilets were clean, rooms were clean, comfortable beds, not sure if it is a guesthouse though, I'd go for hostel... Tv with free view, free wifi and free parking, can't complain!

Room was very cold, the toilets were dirty, poor reception and welcoming to the hostel. Ok, you pay for what you get, but I have never stayed in a hostel so bad! Would not return, would rather pay a little extra, very noisy in the early hours of the morning.

This triple room was booked on our behalf so we didn't know what to expect. It wasn't really the friendliest welcome, but worse was the room - tiny, cold, sparsely furnished, no towels provided (had to ask). No en suite, upstairs shower broken. Other guests were a bit weird and also quite noisy - and the place stank of fags... More

I needed to catch an early flight from East Midlands airport and I was just looking for something cheap. This was the cheapest place in Derby, and for good reason. It was clean enough but it just seemed horrible and dodgy. Next time I'll pay a bit more and upgrade to, well, anything else would be an upgrade.

I was looking for somewhere cheap to get a decent few hours sleep between late night and early morning flights and this place was fine. Near enough the train station (10 mins walk) and the bed was comfortable. The room was clean also. The bathroom facilities were a little on the small side and there was a bit of noise... More
