I've just returned home after spending the night in the Igloo hostel. It was fantastic. Upon arrival we managed to park the car in one of the free spaces at the back of the building (accessed via the side road just past the front of the building) we were welcomed by a lovely lady, very friendly & welcoming. She was... More

Friendly staff, clean, value for money and quirky - just what you want from a hostel. I've just spent two nights at Igloo as I had appointments in Nottingham and as I was on my own didn't want to break the bank. I've stayed in hostels in Asia, Oz and NZ and at YHA in the UK and so know... More

I've went to the hostel for 4 days. Now i'm not someone who like hostels but I absolutely loved this place. The staff were extremely friendly and the place was very clean. Showers and toilets were always clean. The rooms were very cozy and beds were comfortable. Anytime you need anything you'll find the staff there ready to help you... More

I booked Igloo through the Laterooms website because my partner and I had a gig to go to in Nottingham City centre and all the hotels appeared to be very pricey. I booked a double room for the two of us not really knowing what to expect. I've stayed in hostels when back packing abroad but never in this Country.... More

I have been in this hostel this week. It is very clean and nice. The staff is very gentle and available for everything. Services very clean for an hostel. The position is comfortable, very close to Market Square and main facilities of the city centre. I would reccomend to everybody to spend a night in this hostel. See ya

Overall we had a pleasant stay. In hindsight I wish we paid the couple of quid more and got one of the recently refurbished room because ours felt a bit dingy. Clean, but dingy. The kitchen was nice and clean. My biggest gripe was with the toilet/shower to guest ratio. It took quite a bit of queuing in the morning... More

Worst impression ever - they charged my card PLUS AN EXTRA FEE NOT MENTIONED ANYWHERE ON HOSTELBOOKERS OR THEIR WEBSITE before I even left home to drive to Nottingham! Disgusting business practice, as if the £20 CASH deposit (MORE THAN THE COST OF THE ROOM FOR ONE NIGHT) wasn't extortionate enough! I've never, ever had this happen at any other... More
