Absolutely awful. I requested a refund as hostel bookers site didn't state it was a live music venue. They didn't grant it to me. waste of money. Was supposed to be a chilled weekend away in Bristol, but had to seek new accomodation. Nowhere to lock your stuff, one woman I'd spoken to in my dorm had stayed there cause she'd been physically abused by her partner and had a huge cut across her face. It's a really grotty, depressing hostel. Showers smell like pee. Not worth it.

I just don’t recommend this hostel. It’s okay if you want to stay for a night but... that’s all. Good position in the city, and lot of nice people “living there”. Cleaning was... ok. Rooms were cleaned but toilets are another stuff. And if you talk to the right person in reception it’s good cause not all of them are “extremely friendly” and just saying, if you work in a hostel, try to at least be nice to the people who are paying to stay there, if not, then maybe that’s not your type of work, keep searching!

Myself and 2 mates stayed here for 1 night to see a gig in the O2 Academy. Normally I would stay in a Premier Inn or Travelodge, but booking for 3 adults in pone of them requires 2 rooms. We paid £80 (between the 3 of us) for a room to ourselves which had 4 beds (2 bunks). The sheets were clean but there was still empty glasses and bottles of beer/whisky left around the room. It didn't bother us though as we just used the room to sleep, shower in the morning and leave. Staff are friendly, toilets were clean.

Don’t stay at this place if you want to sleep before 3am! I don’t know what tf is wrong with these people. Based on my understanding, such a place is first and foremost a place for travellers to rest and sleep. Kitchen turned into a night club from 10pm to 3am. The whole building was shaking because of clubbing music, and apparently the DJ has a bad taste.
