We were 3 friends and just could not sleep at all! The place is incredibly loud (above a club and bowling with techno music until 3am! + people shouting in the street all night long) There are no curtains, no towels. The windows could not be closed. The bathrooms are dirty and the common spaces are creepy... I cannot imagine we paid 40£ each for a night. DON'T GO THERE IF YOU WANT TO SLEEP!

For £25 per night I did expect something slightly better than this. It's a 12 bed dorm filled with trash and reeks of weed. there is NO privacy between beds and you cant lock away your stuff since there are no lockers or cupboards. I feel unsafe and am scared of my more expensive belongings (such as a laptop) getting stolen. My bed doesn't even have a PILLOW. It's currently a wednesday night and as I am used to living in a busy street full of nightlife I did not expect to be lying awake because of the noise. Even with earplugs and so called "noise cancelling headphones" i still can't sleep bf of the amount of people screaming outside and the bass shaking up the beds. I know the hostel mentioned they were located above a club so there might be some noise over the weekend, but for a wednesday night this is far beyond acceptable. I should not be paying this much for half a bed and a trashed room that has terrible noise complaints. I haven't even started about the disgusting bathrooms yet....

Title says it all. Shocking place full of long term lowlife and creepy behaving 70 year old. Seriously dodgy if you are female. Place run down, dirty, unsave and loud to beyond believe. All common spaces always occupied by long term inhabitants drinking their cheap ciders or beers. Stay away!

Went to Bristol to see a friend. Found RocknBowl hostel online. They were close to the bus station and all the pubs and cafes dowtown in Bristol. They have an amazing community kitchen and TV room. Lots of places to charve your electronics. Great vibe and courteous staff. Just a pleasant stay. Would definitely reccomend it.
