Great hostel; Leighton and Coleman (Aaron and Cormack) #hostelheroes
Pros: great location, free breakfast, 11am checkout, good range of entertainment facilities. Cons: very old building, no lockers/storage in dorms, cold dorms, showers last literally 6 seconds with no control over temperature and usually dirty floors with blocked drains. Bring ear plugs!! It is very noisy outside.
very nice staff, always at your disposal :) thank you very much for your recommendations Inma&Harold
Very friendly and welcoming staff, great central location in a trendy quarter near to Piccadilly station, dorm room was comfortable and communal bathrooms/lockers plus free tea and coffee. If you are a light sleeper like me, I recommend ear plugs and eyemask on weekends for city noise/light.
Close to the city centre. The bathrooms are old and the shower is separated from toilet.
Well situated, and everything you'd want in a hostel. Would use again.
Good staff. Aaron and Cormack are top blokes and are good to hang out with when everyone else has their nose in their laptops.
Keep it up with the pub crawl! That was one of the highlights of my stay. Overall, good hostel. Thanks for having me.
Twin room was basic but an alright place to stay, in an excellent location right by all the best bars and restaurants in the Northern Quarter. Also less than 10 mins walk from the coach station. Walls were pretty thin so depending on who's in the next room you may not get much sleep. Male showers on the 5th floor weren't working when I was there but there were others. Not v. clean though! Recommended overall - for location mostly - but feels a little overpriced for the quality/cleanliness.
When I checked in, I left one bag in the luggage room. I don't think it is enough asking if guests have a number to get access to the room. The receptionist should actually check that number with the bags the guests take and destroy them after the guest leaves. I was able to stay inside the luggage room for more than 5 minutes, organising my bag, I could have taken ANY bag, and in the end, I even left with the little paper. I feel like I could just go back tomorrow and take ANY bag.
Nothing special. Staff seem not to care really...
