Hatters Hilton Chambers
Reviewed August 21, 2008

Stayed in one of their double rooms (not dormitory, although have stayed in one of these). Really good quality room (decent size) and access to own private kitchen with free coffee and bread (shared between the rooms on that floor).

Very friendly place in a slightly less attractive area of the Northern Quarter.

Stayed: December 2007

I stayed in this hostel with 8friends on a hen party. The hostel is lovely. It is clean and spacious. The rooms are excellant,clean bed linen and good size en-suite. The kitchen was big, tea,coffee and toast available all day. Staff very friendly, location was really good. The only problem was check out at 11am too early! Would stay here again,without a doubt!

I recently spent a miserable night at this place for a poor-value £55. Considering a room in a well-regarded hotel nearby would have been £65 for that night I regret being so mean as to bother saving a tenner.

Hilton Chambers is located in a seedy part of the city-centre, with an entrance that makes you feel you're in a dodgy flop-house. My stay was characterised by

* Profuse sweating (owing to the absence of either aircon, opening windows, or a fan - on the hottest night of the year)

* Disturbed sleep caused by constant road traffic through the night

* Going hungry (the advertised inclusive toast+jam had run out and the supposed OJ was actually cheap squash)

* An indeterminate but unpleasant odour pervading the entire place

Add to this the surly morning staff on reception and the picture is complete. Not an experience I recommend.

The review in Time Out online which led me to book here suggested I'd be staying somewhere unconventional and fun. Actually I'd describe Hilton Chambers as perfectly conventional: ie. a commercial rip-off - and no fun at all. My advice to myself for future reference is: If I want a hostel I'll stay in the ever-reliable and friendly YHA variety. If I want a hotel-room, I'll pay that little bit extra.

HiltonChambers, Sales Manager at Hatters Hilton Chambers, responded to this reviewResponded August 12, 2008

Thank you for your informative and frank reviews of our little hostel.
In reponse to Sherbie's comment regarding your recent stay with us, it is most unfortunate that you did not enjoy your short visit to the Northern Quarter nor in the Hilton Chambers.
We are a small budget property that attempts to provide value and service with a smile in an upcoming allbeit eclectic part of the city which is a favourite with so many of our guests, and it is unfortunate that you percieved it to be 'a seedy area'. I do understand that you arrived quite late in the evening and checked out at seven in the morning and would suggest that perhaps the short nature of your stay during what was indeed perhaps the sultriest night we have had for some time may have had an impact on your opinions.
We are not admittedly geared up for sweltering conditions the like of which you experienced, hence the lack of air conditioning.
It is unfortunate that you did not bring to our attention your disatisfaction with so many aspects of your stay while you were with us.
While your comments are invaluable in letting us know where we fail to meet your expectations and we will endeavour to act upon same
We provide 24 hour staffing so that in the event of something missing, broken or lacking we can correct it there and then if possible.
We added the juice recently after receiving suggestions from our guests to provide some. It may not be freshly squeezed however we have attempted to provide what is considered the standard in not freshly prepared juice... as much as we would like to squeeze it ourselves the budget is what squeezes us on this one. But we may change it should our guests request this. Regarding the smell I can only hope that this may have had to do with weather conditions as discussed above as we have a full cleaning staff who thoroughly clean all living areas as well as bedrooms every day and with properly maintained equipment. We will keep an eye on this as we are aware as to how strong people's sense of smell is and how it can effect one's perception.
Thank you once again for your review and perhaps you may consider returning some day.
