This Hostel is a complete Joke! I paid about 85!!!!£ for 2 Nights Everything is dirty, from the kitchen to the bathroom and the rooms. The rooms are so small and tight that you only just have enough space to squeeze through. I almost choked to death in my 6 bedroom room. The whole Hostel smells like at least 5 people must‘ve DIED in there. It‘s not possible to lock away your belongings and the people in this Hostel are either drug addicts or psychos. The so-called „Breakfast“ literally was Toast, Butter and Jam I left after one sleepless night and booked a very expensive Hotel room but it didn‘t even bother me anymore because I was just happy to get away from this absolutely disgusting place. It completely ruined my trip to Bristol. The people that run / own this Hostel

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

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!
