Clean bedding and warm duvet cover for the cold nights. Ensuite showers and toilet which gets cleaned every day. Self catering kitchen or sit down... More

I stayed here for one night to attend an open day for a cheap price. Very cheap indeed and from the reviews I read it's better than some other hostels in the city. So I arrived and it was a little difficult to find from Deansgate-Castlefield station but it was dark and raining and quite late so that might affect... More

Friendly staff and free parking,the hostel is close to many attractions and in walking distance of other sites including the universities. We have stayed here a few times including university open day. the rooms are clean but a bit noisy at night. Good breakfast in the canal side dining room.

From the first time I looked at the reviews for YHA Manchester, I had a feeling it would be great, as a member of staff ALWAYS responded to reviews. How right I was! I have never before stayed at a hostel, but I think as far as hostels go, YHA is pretty good. The members of staff are really helpful... More

Stayed here in September for 4 nights. Excellent city centre location with many restaurants and attractions with 30 minutes walking distance. Free parking on site. I came for work as a solo travellor but did see families, students and mature people which makes for a very interesting mix. Couteous staff. Clean rooms (ensuite). Good kitchen and relaxation (snooker etc) facilities.... More

Everything you would expect from a British YHA, clean, tidy, not too far from the city centre. Communal kitchen was clean enough, the kitchen staff offered all kinds to meet dietary requirements. Adequate conference rooms, chilled out hostel atmosphere and a quiet nights sleep!!

A very convenient location and the hostel even has its own free car park. I liked the 24 hr check-in. The room with 4 bunks was nice and airy. I didn't like the en-suite cubicle in the room very much; it needs deep cleaning or even better, replacing. Don't forget to wear sandals when showering! The bed was clean and... More

.......as I'd never stayed in a hostel before. But I really had nothing to worry about. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The rooms were quite spacious more than enough room for the 4 of us. The only thing for me was the shower, the water was hot (big plus), it just looked like, although it was clean, it... More
