“Girlie weekend”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Stayed here in the 8 bedded room ensuite with 7 of my friends and couldn't fault the place for the price. Had breakfast up till 10am with cereals toast juice tea coffee hot choc and then after that toast and tea/coffee/hot choc 24/7. We came in both nights after 3am and wasn't a problem at all. Staff were lovely and when booking out at 11 on the Sunday we weren't getting picked up till 2pm our luggage was kept in the office behind the reception. Very central for everything. Definitely stay again.

Well ladies if you came in after 3am both nights you did excellently ;) We always like to see people having a good time and will help you with whatever we can, whether it be luggage storage or pointing you in the right direction of a party (which is never to far being located right in the center of Manchester's fabulous Northern Quarter)!

We hope to see you all again on your next big night out, and thanks for the review!!

Don't think twice, it's a great place. The only bad thing about it is that the beds are quite metally, but I got a good night sleep anyway. The floors were so clean when I got my room, you could eat of them.

On a very tight business budget, I selected this hostel on-line as I liked the white painted exterior and the location, it's smack bang in the Bohemian Northern quarter and it was walking distance from where my seminar was being held. I opted to stay in a 6 bed all female dorm as the single units were all booked out. Luckily the room was occupied by other single travellers as well as a 3 person group.

Pros
The room I stayed in was on the street side and noise from buses and weekend revellers not too bad. The condition of the dorm was good 2 star and the power shower was in excellent in working condition. Lots of hot water. Staff were punctilious and efficient. They will quiet down excitable slightly noisy youngsters any time from 11pm. The guests come from a wonderful range of nationalities and age groups (manly teens and early 20s but a few middle aged folk dotted around) for you to chit-chat with if that's your thing. There was a continental breakfast inc. in the brilliant price (approx £80 for 3 nights) and a free communal fridge to store your own food stuff if needed. Free wifi and a common room with TV and pool/ billiards. Secure storage for luggage and valuables if required.

Certainly put me in mind of using hostels next time I travel for leisure on my own.

Cons:
Rooms only get cleaned once a week or something like that but us girls did keep the room tidy. The 2 small bins in our 6 woman room was generally overflowing so the alleged once a day clearance needs monitoring to see if that's enough.
A mad howling window cleaner woke us up on Sunday morning. Quite strange but just a fluke.

Room Tip: Do remember to take ear plugs and eye cover if you sleep light. I would recommend asking for a slot...

Thank you very much for your detailed review - all these points are great for our travelers planning on staying with us:)

Being a hostel, we do rely on guests keeping their room tidy so thank you very much for that too - the rooms generally get cleaned when people are checking out as there are otherwise bags, etc. in the way, but we will definitely take note of the fact that the bins do need to be checked. Of course if you feel they need to be taken out you can let us know at reception and if the housekeepers have gone we will be happy to run up and get it done for you!

We're very happy as well to hear that you will more likely consider a hostel in future - it is surely a more economic option and it's lovely to know that people, even on a business trip, have an openness to sharing space with other people, as that sometimes seems to be becoming a rarity! Thanks so much and we look forward to welcoming you in again.

Stayed in a private room. The place was easily accessible. 10 mins walk from the Shudehill Bus Interchange. 10 mins walk from the Piccadily Train Station. Restaurant/Eatries available easily.
The Hostel was clean, well maintained and the staffs were very helpful. If want to visit Manchester City or Manchester United, the information provided in the Hostel is very useful rather than opting for Train Ride from Piccadily. Wifi is good. Breakfast was simple and good.

Room Tip: A nice place to stay. Ideal for youngsters. Will definitely return here.

I went up to Manchester for a weekend to see friends of mine, and booked in here. I was impressed with the location in the Northern Quarter which was a short walk from the city centre itself and made getting around real easy. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm room which had relatively new beds and looked nice with timber floors and a shared bathroom. The shower was very good and hot, and other roommates friendly. I liked the communal kitchen area and lounge of the hostel it seemed cosy, especially the games room. Definitely a good place to stay, breakfast was included in the price. Secure premised with a locked door after hours but I could still gain entry with my room card.

What a great review, cheers!

While Manchester city center is quite small, our location (especially with the Northern Quarters twisty-turny streets) does make it easier to find your way around! Our guests are great and it's lovely to see solo/group travelers meeting new people in our communal areas :)

I stayed in 6 bed mixed dorm for 2 nights. The staff are friendly, and the hostel has nice area for breakfast and preparing food. The breakfast was quite nice, although had to ask for milk jugs to be filled on 2 occassions. and there is a nice common room. Although he street can be a little noisy, had no problems sleeping. Everybody was in bed at reasonable time.the rooms were clean, but was a little disappointed that they hadnt cleaned the rooms when i had arrived even though this was about 4. The showers were fine and toilets were generally clean, although on one occassion i felt they needed a good cleaning and the bins were full. Overall i would recommend this hostel and location is excellent. with little bit more cleaning and more milk this would be great place to stay and good value for money. also the windows in the rooms could do with a good cleaning. Hostels are often dependent on the people you share with being respectful and as these were ok and i slept ok, this was a good stay.

Thanks for leaving a review!

Unfortunately on busy mornings we can get bowled over by lots of check ins and find it hard to get a moment to leave the desk - in this case we try to put more jugs out, but it's hard to guess sometimes.

We do indeed rely on our guests to keep their things clean and tidy after the housekeepers' have left, but this is not always the case and we apologize for what you experienced! If you do ever feel like this however you can come to reception to let us know and we'll be happy to come and replace the binliners for you :)

As far as hostels go, the Hilton Chambers was sort of the bee's knees. I wouldn't realize by what an extent until three weeks later, when I'd stayed in all class of places (from a basement with what could quite possibly be the largest spider I have ever seen in my life, and instantly murdered using some German kid's shoe [not present at the time] and feeling instantaneously bad on all sorts of levels, to what was virtually a hotel. This place is a very good, extremely well-priced hostel; very inexpensive, even, as I was only in a four-person room (and the other folks didn't even show up). Hilton Chambers is exceptionally clean, and the rooms are actually rather spacious. Great location in Manchester; just down the way from Piccadilly Gardens (and by several bars serving the ever glorious Boddington's).

While you do not have a safe in your room, the front desk will hold any of your personal items in their lock-box, which is behind their 24-hour reception. Hilton Chambers has their stuff in order, and are even a bit (through reasonably) strict.

On an unrelated note, the Manchester version of London's The Eye is totally worth it.

Haha! Fear not, there are no spiders here to induce any accidental spider-cruelty! You're right, we are close to lots of transport links and great pubs - some of which brew their own lager and keep it exclusive to that one, single pub!

And true, we are strict occasionally - we understand that some people do actually WANT to sleep whilst traveling, so we put a ban on any noise upstairs after 11pm (people can continue to have a laugh in our communal areas if they wish!)

Unfortunately though, everyone, the Manchester Eye has been taken down! Our new thing is a ride - probably as high as the eye - so it's the same thing really.....except you're spinning round and round and perhaps don't have QUITE the same sense of security ;)
