I stayed here on business and will use again. The room was clean and it contained storage space, a sink and a Tv. The manager is very helpful and informative. The showers are hot and roomy. There is ample parking space.

We had our yearly conference here on Monday, as I has a long way to travel I was given the option to stay on the Sunday which I did. The rooms are spacious and modern the building is fantastic and has a real wow factor when you arrive. On the downside £4.40 a pint and £15 for burger and chips... More

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.
