4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The catering here is some of the best I've ever experienced in a hostel. The only problem is that it tends to be very noisy at night with groups coming and going in and out of rooms. But otherwise, an excellent hostel in a good location.

The rooms are good. The wifi is very bad even in the lobby. The kitchen is well equipped, but someone stole some food I had put in the refrigerator. I ordered a pizza it was more or less. Breakfast is good but expensive. Reception people are thoughtful.

I'm not quite sure how to even phrase this email as I'm so angry at the service I received, which is even worse as it came from the manager. I very rarely leave negative reviews and I'd stayed at this hostel a few years ago and had a very good experience, the price and situation was ideal. So with that... More

I stayed here for 2 nights and it met all my basic needs. I had a bathroom/shower in my room and it was comfortable. To get to the good stuff in the area, you can walk (about 20-25 mins) or take a cab.

I stayed here for one night in August. I was extremely impressed by the modern decor in the reception area, the cosy television room and eating space by the bar. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend to anyone visiting the area.

It's a nice place, well managed and clean. I saw people of all ages in the YHA, but mainly people in the beginning of their 20s. Not far from the city (Manchester is small anyway), so it's easy to go to any trainstation. It was a 15-20 pound ride from the airport to the YHA (I arrived in the middle... More

When we first booked this youth hostel I was dreading it as youth hostels are normally unhygienic and poor customer service, however this youth hostel was brilliant, very clean, everything looked like it was all in good order and also the staff were very friendly and always willing to help. The only problem is the bathroom was tiny and the... More

The hostel is nice and clean. The building is excellent but the customer service is poor. Staff is unwelcoming. Check in is very late and check out is very early. When extended our stay we were told we can leave our bags with them on the last day but at the end we were charged for it.
