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

Good location, friendly staff and good quality for the price you pay. The room was adjacent to the railway line, but location is marvelous. You can cook your own food and store it in the fridges provided

As travelling in UK on budget, this hostel offered me the best quality for the price I paid. Hostel is almost in the city centre, situated next to Science and Industry Museum on the bank of canal. There is also pretty good breakfast buffet for extra fee.

The one plus here is the location. We truly enjoyed the old converted industrial area with its many bridges, canals and brickwork buildings. It's easy to grab a bus to the city centre and back and there's a fantastic science museum around the corner. On the other hand: a double bed here is only for suitable for couples. There was...

We arrived from Manchester airport in the late afternoon and check-in was quick and easy. The facilities and amenities are updated and the service from the staff was excellent. It doesn't have a cosy hostel feel so possibly not ideal if you're a solo traveller looking to make friends, but that type of atmosphere isn't what I need in a... More
