The place has clearly been done up recently, and looks very modern. I had a four-bed dorm and found the bed and en-suite bathroom to be very comfortable, especially given the price. The staff were very friendly, and the guy who checked me in was super helpful. Breakfast was pretty average for the better youth hostels. The WiFi was a... More

I would recommend this hostel to any person. And I would surely return to it. Great staff, great location , great breakfast, great ambiance. Great value for money and very nice people staying in the hostel. Just one problem : They don't have Wifi in all building.

Just needed somewhere cheap and cheerful for one night trip - this place is perfect for what was needed. The staff were pleasant and overall the experience was good. This is a hostel so as long as you know what to expect and aren't expecting hotel it's fine. Rooms were a little warn but overall it's fine

Located only about ten minutes walk from the city centre, this is a good choice of budget accommodation. There is a variety of rooms available, from twin rooms with bunkbeds to dormitory rooms to family rooms with ensuite bathrooms, and the price you will pay will very much depend on availability. I stayed mid week and got a real bargain... More

Booked here for a night away with two couples. We chose the quadruple room for £85 which was perfect for a city stop in Manchester! A taxi to the main spots in Manchester would cost £3-6 or you can walk approx 15-30 mins depending on where you go. Very friendly staff and a nice atmosphere.

Great youth hostel lots of facilities, not to Eco warrior ish like some hostels are. I went for a one night stay and paid for a 8 person room rate. Ended up only myself in there which was a bonus. Rooms are comfy and many have ensuite which is handy unless you have a noisy bottom

Stayed here with a group of friends for one night to attend a concert at the Etihad. Found the hostel online and chose it based on price. Was pleasantly surprised at the facilities available and found the staff to be extremely helpful, and the option for late checkout was surprisingly inexpensive as well. We had a quadruple room to ourselves... More

The location is good, with the metro within walking distance. Accommodation is clean and has everything needed for a night away from home. We took our own pillows after reading other reviews. There's a small bar which stayed open for us to have a few drinks and pizza after a night out in town. Staff are approachable and happy to... More

I was here for one midweek night in April. This was the one place on my UK holiday where I was asked whether I wanted to be charged in dollars or pounds. Go for the pounds, yanks! It's cheaper by a couple of dollars per day. I arrived around 3 and checked out my 4-person dorm. They give you a... More
