I failed the first rule of travel - always check the reviews before booking. I have stayed in other hostels around the world but this one did not live up to expectations. It was almost depressing in its meagreness and need of update. The rooms are sparse and bedding barely adequate for early October. The lack of common room or a TV also reduce the adequacy of accomodation. I'm not sure this is value for money or good from an accessibility perspective but stay if you must.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We at Russell Scott Hostels also known as R S Hostels offer our guests safe, secure, clean, spacious budget accommodation being the only backpackers hostel in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. We are not profit driven. With you having a great time in Sheffield and staying with us, is all we wish for! We do not believe in making extra from you, your basic needs are all taken care of - internet access, washing machine, bed linen, breakfast all inclusive in the room/bed rate.We believe that small is beautiful. We pride ourselves in offering cheap accommodation by which we don't mean over crowding the place or reduce the facilities we offer. For example our dorms have single beds in them and the maximum no of people in our dorm is six even though the room could easily accommodate eight people. Knowing what it is like to be a backpacker/traveller and knowing little needs go a long way, we decided to provide value for money accommodation with no compromise whatsoever on the quality or most of the perks that you would enjoy in a star hotel for one third of the price. ... more less
