the water in the shower was luke warm. way too cold for january in manchester! they won't let you use the lift even if they have rooms on the 4th floor and you have heavy suitcases yet the lazy staff get to use them... breakfast is awful. they put you in rooms with nasty old people. like in there 50s. staff swear to you in spanish, thinking you don't understand
the hostel has a good location and you can get quickly to the centre. what I didn't like was that I was in a room with a guy who would talk to himself the whole time and when I asked to change room it was not possible, so I had a sleepless night since the other people in my room turned out to be very creepy, talking and giggling to themselves (I assumes they were homeless people due to their smell and weird behaviour). I felt very unsafe. All in all, the hostel offers free wifi, breakfast.
Great location!Internet free WiFi just works on the ground floor and 1st floor, in this day and age it should be all throughout the hostel.
Really good location, really friendly staff. However really cold rooms. I do like to party hard, but I would also like to have a good night sleep.The walls are really really thin. Been on hostels all over the world, never seen anything like this.These group of guys in their 18's were yelling in their room at 6 am downstairs and a lot of people from our floor woke up. We stayed at the fifth floor - No elevator. They start to clean our room and beds 10.30 while we were still getting ready to leave
Good location. Have stayed there twice now but probably not again. Private room was old, old windows let the freezing air in, bed was squeaky and very old, shared bathrooms are dirty and old, water was only warm, service was good, close to Piccadily station and Northern quarter.
All was fine, but for the week-end I couldn't reserve a bed for one night on Saturday, I had to reserve for two nights (Saturday and Sunday) instead of only one that I needed . And obviously I slept there for just a night .
Location was great, only 5min walk from Piccadilly station, as well as many attractions & shops. The only real negatives were that the beds were really uncomfortable and the hot water didnt always work in the showers. Also more than 1 double powerpoint in an 8 bed roo would be nice
