Had to wait 45 minutes outside Of the door before someone came (even though I booked, arrived at the time said, and was during reception hours). Apparently they are understaffed and have to work at 2 locations. The shower did not drain, had about 2 inches Of water on the floor, which then went to the toilet... The water in the shower eventually drained, but not in the toilet. Not enough power sockets in the big doorm.internet went down the second night.


just the place for a much needed cheap bed thanks

Good location. Only 7 minutes walk to the wall. Plenty of space to socialise including a terrace. I would definitely stay there again.


Lindsay is the most helpful host, don´t hesitate to ask her for anything you need, she´s always ready and jolly; the hostel was, for me, perfect, just a short walk from everything in the centre, silent at night and I could use the showers and leave my luggage even after check up. That was very helpful. Tea and iron facilities made a little happy difference for my interview day! :D


Nice and helpful staff. Central location. Strong Wi-Fi! Highly recommended!


The only thing that really annoyed me was that bedsheets were not clean, they seemed to be the same than the last costumer used and that is disgusting. But staff was really nice and is like being in your house. Well, and the price of the room is expensive, but Chester in general is. So I guess is still a good option.


Great value, and location, clean room and bathroom, that's all you need!
