Friends booked this as a cheap hotel in the city. It has a great location with all places just a cheap cab away, the hotels own bar has friendly staff with discounted prices for hotel guests. I think the discount may be the only highlight of my stay! To state a few of my discoveriesI, mould on the bath mats,... More

Stayed here with a bunch of friends as we were heading for a gig in Manchester. It was only £15 per person for the night so we weren't expecting it to be particularly luxurious but we weren't quite prepared for the level of uncleanliness that we found. The room was filthy with stains and damp patches all over the carpet.... More

The location is great, 5 minutes walk from the Manchester Central venue, plenty of bars, restaurant and supermarkets all around. The gentleman who checked me in was quite friendly but usually there is nobody at the reception: if you need anything you need to go to the pub (as I did). The room itself was ok but it really needed... More

Hands down the worst place I have ever stayed. Stains on all the walls, floors & ceilings. Our carpet was damp, presumably from where sick had been cleaned up or beer was spilled. You get what you pay for but that was worse than £15.00 I paid. Would never stay here again.

Wasn't even that cheap! Except the bedsheets and the towels I don't think anyone cleaned the room before! We couldn't close the window which was broken When we arrived the reception was closed (I feel like it was never really open actually!), luckily a woman gave us the code for the door Creepy place perfect for an horror movie!

Stayed there last night and it's definitely the dirtiest hotel I've ever stayed in, apart from the bedsheets nothing looked as if it had been cleaned and this place can't own a hoover. Our room had a window that wouldn't shut so a draught all night and the music was blasting out even though we were on the fourth floor.... More

Despite being a Tuesday, extremely loud noise/sound system until 2am not 11pm, 63db, walls shook. During the day where I live it's 21db. "Curtains" don't close and used cotton buds with ear wax was on the floor. Staff live there. Soap dispenser didn't work. Peeling walls. No WiFi.

We knew this would be grotty when we booked as it was the cheapest place in central Manchester, and we weren't disappointed. Someone had urinated in the lift quite recently, and none of the staff seemed too bothered about clearing it up. The bathroom was full of black mold and had clearly not been cleaned since the last time someone... More

I can put less then terrible or i would. Never in my life have i been some where so disgusting. The lift literally smelt of dead people, there was blood on our radiator! £45 is not cheap in the grand scheme of things and i wouldnt even pay £20 for this place. I genuinely feared for my health! The carpet... More

Me and my mate used this place for the second time on 8th November whilst in town for a football match. We found the staff in the hotel very polite & friendly and they let us check in early which was very handy as we were in a rush. The bar/club downstairs is perfect for enjoying a few cheap drinks...
