My padlock didn't fit the lockers and they had none on hand at the desk. So make sure you have a small padlock that can fit a narrow hole. Location doesn't look great, but it's a very short walk from the main road. Nothing was too luxurious but I got what I needed. Free breakfast was appreciated greatly.


The toilets were filthy and the showers were horrible

A quiet little place. Seemed like there is only one shower between i don't know how many people... People in the room up till 3 in the morning on computers and then would sleep all day. Very close to a National Express bus station and only a short walk to the Bullring.


Excellent place. Very close to the Coach Station, just what I needed.

I have stopped in many hostels all over the world and this was my least enjoyable stay, mainly due to the staff, they were not welcoming in the slightest and generally had a negative attitude.

Nothing special about Birmingham or this hostel, skip it if you can. Area the hostel is located is a s#%¥ hole, feels dangerous


A bit outdated and lacking atmosphere but it is Ok for the price. Central although located in a dark/empty street. The staff were polite.


I think that the hostel needs a bit of an overhaul and some money plugged back into the facilities.


Just on the side of Lake Windermere. Though a bit far from the city center of Ambleside, but very convenient to reach the bus stop. The beautiful scenery can make up for any inconvenience.


They dont care who they put in there rooms, i was in a room with old drunks who had been there for years and they had a fight early hours. as a girl was a bit un easy. it was clean thats the only good thing about this place.
