nice hostel and it's located very close to (which i believe to be) the city centre, approx. 5 min walk to picadilly gardens. the staff is very friendly and helpful. but in the shared room where i stayed in there were no lockers. breakfast was alright and tea, coffee and toast are provided all time round. i only spent 24 hrs in mcr so for this short period everything was ok for me. hostel is a bit run down but that just seems to be the case with accomodation in england.
: excellent location, clean bathroom - : very loud at night, wifi just at reception, too expensive for a tiny room (with a broken "closet") in November!
Really nice and helpful staff.
Expensive - £40 pn in a 6bed dorm!!!

Nice hotel in excellent location. Would recommend.
Horrible experience. I stayed there for 3 nights and none of those nights could even sleep well with the noise from street dunkers. Even horrible with the last night a group of guy getting into our female dorm and woke all is up, it's a terrible security problem.
We only stayed one night in a private room, however we would be happy to stay again. Room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Wifi didn't work in our room.

The location is the saving grace for this place- bring earplugs because there's a mix of people and lots of drinking and music. When we arrived I asked the receptionist for lunch recommendations so she googled and said wagamama (!) could improve knowledge of area. Their security pass system is silly, bracelets would be easier. No free wifi in the rooms which isn't right and could offer late check in for more £. Average hostel in great location. Go to the soup kitchen opposite- amazing.
An OK hostel, would expect more for the money. The breakfast, bunks and ensuite were fairly standard. The the northern quarter is quite a cool area, and not too far from the train station which was handy. The wifi would not connect on my laptop, no lockers in the room, no reading light, which would be helpful. Wifi is an essential now to any travels, so it is really disappointing that this hostel has not installed or paid for wifi that actually works.
I had a lovely experience at Hatters. The staff were very friendly and accommodating.

It smells very clean but they do not have lockers available for everyone.
No WiFi away from common areas (only paying), which is very annoying.
Positive: The staff was friendly. Especially the Italian girl that checked us in. The kitchen was clean and there was free tee and hot chocolate which is always nice. Not so positive: There were no lockers in the room, the ones provided on the hall were all occupied. The bathroom was a bit of a mess at the end of the day. Our room was not ready at check-in time and still wet from mopping when we entered the room.
Great location, right in the heart of the Northern Quarter. Clean enough hostel with kitchen, common room with pool table, TV, playstation and also a nice courtyard. Only downside was the wifi (£5 a day if you want it in the rooms) lockers (none in the dorms and the ones downstairs were too small for even a hand luggage) and there's no age limit. We had three homeless men in their late forties, they all snored, one decided he jump into another guests bed. Overall an okay stay.
It´s a good place but I missed a quiet room. There were always some kind of noice. If it wasn¨t the music in the kitchen, it was for the television. Some more chairs and tables are needed as there is no wifi in the dorms.
A good hostel during the week for real travelers. I was told to avoid on the weekend as it becomes a party hostel. Staff helpful, the 4 bed room was very small compared to most I have stayed. I was disappointed that 4 out of the 6 promoted daily activities involved consuming large amounts of alcohol. Doesn't Manchester have more to offer than getting drunk?
Very centrally located...very convenient...friendly staff and generally the facilities were very good. Would recommend gladly to friends.
This hostel is suitable just to sleep for a night.
Too many people crammed in one room, not much space to move around in the mornings. One bed has light shining on it all night from the street outside. Can be loud since it is in an area that is very lively, but the walls are thin so beware of staying here on the weekends. The internet did not stretch into my room but was fine within the common areas. Staff is very friendly and polite, and the hostel felt safe and secure otherwise.
