The only good thing about this place was the clean bed linen. Everything else was so far below the standards of the YHA as to be laughable. The kitchen was a pathetic disgrace, the lounge was barely bigger than a broom cupboard, the lockers had no keys so were unusable. I've stayed in much better hostels, this one was dreadful.

Stayed here with a group of friends for a night out in Manchester as we just wanted a bed for the night. For this purpose the hostel is fine for the price. Service was varied, however the male receptionist we dealt with was very friendly and helpful.

No locks on toilet doors. They didn't know that I had booked a room with them. They also tried to charge me more than the price in my booking confirmation. A bunch of drunk people came in the middle of the night and woke up everybody in the dorm.

The gentleman behind the desk was lovely and useful, and the location was ideal (we were going the arena). However I was disappointed to see that their version of a "shared bathroom" was literally using a key to get into someone else's room to use a bathroom with no lock on the door... and apparently our room was the largest...

The positives: location, and the staff were friendly. The negatives: lack of general maintenance. No locks on either of the male toilet cubicles. Inoperaple window blinds. I got very little sleep due to our door being banged on several times by other residents who were drunk or worse...maybe that's par for the course but maybe security could be better. Thr... More

I found myself in need of accommodation late in the evening so booked through the website. I arrived at 23:03 to find the reception closed. I called the number. A member of staff came to check me in but not before he wanted to charge me £20 for the 3 minutes that I was late. After a little arguing, I... More

It totally lacks atmosphere, it feels like a sleeping farm where cattle come before they get slaughtered. Staff varies from nice to totally uninterested, I can't really blame them the place does suck. it's pretty dirty and I am not that easily put off... The worst thing is they double charged my credit card - so I call the hostel... More

I came across this hostel after missng my flight to Crete and having to stay one night in a expensive hotel in Manchester due to PRIDE being on and numerous other events. I booked in for two nights because there was no way i could afford another night in the centre of town. I thought i knew Manchester very well... More
