I've read a few reviews from people struggling to find this hostel, honestly i'm the kind of person who gets lost on a straight road but I got there no problem. Once you're headed in the right direction there are signposts so you can't go wrong. Lady on the check in desk was very helpful, as was the guy serving... More

I stayed here to take an exam in Manchester. It only costed me 11 pounds a night in a dorm with 3 other people which was very clean. There is a pool table, arcade game area and free wifi in the lobby area. Very warm and friendly staff.

A return visit. Lovely location. Clean and well maintained hostel with good communal areas and friendly staff. Only two tiny gripes, if you're in a top bunk there's no little shelf for your glasses/alarm clock etc. Twice I've had a peanut tracker bar included in my nut free packed lunch. Be careful if you have a child with allergies.

We just stayed at the hostel for sleeping, since we spent whole day out and left early in the morning. However, it was possible to note that the staff was really friendly on check-in, all facilities would be useful if we needed, the atmosphere was incredible and everything was very clean.
