Stayed for 4 nights in the female dormitory with my sister. Dorm was clean and comfortable. We rented towels for a decent price. The kitchen/pantry was great, everyone cook and clean after themselves, and there were basic utensils (pots, plates, pans, etc) and ingredients (salt, pepper, sauces) ready so its really handy for us to cook. Its 2-3 minutes away...

Staff at the reception is rude. The noise is massive during the whole week because this is not just a hostel, they also have a club in the same facilities ! I saw pipes in the cealing liking water from the showers and toilets

Location is excellent. Just 4 mins walk to bus station and shopping centres/city centre. Many other complementary facilities. Lived in 12 bed room and it was more than comfortable. Cleanliness is good. Desk service is awesome. Kitchen is very big and well equipped, nice place to make new friends. I would strongly recommend this hostel for a comfortable stay.

The breakfast would be better however it was enough to have a good morning. So, if you don't want to waste your money, you should consider...

Really good for a budget hostel, didn't use the facilities much as only really went there to sleep but would definitely recommend as a base. Right in the center of Bristol and friendly staff for a very good price.

The hostel is well located, close to the coach station, the galleries and the river. It is comfortable and well decorated. Price is good, and the quality of service is way better than in London. There are private bathrooms combined with toilets that we can use. I just didn't like the breakfast (like everywhere else in europe) because there's no...

I was there with a friend for two days in the room for 20 people in total. The heater goes through the wall between the two rooms, therefore there is a little hole. Because of that, it was really loud on Monday night. On Tuesday night is was a bit quieter. Without ear plugs it is hard to get some...
