small and hard to find, but since its so empty it is spotlessly clean.


My only caveats are that this location can get very noisy on a Friday or Saturday night, and it is built around a steep staircase - but these seem like reasonable trade-offs for a very central, convenient location. The low number of rooms makes for a more cozy atmosphere - and the staff are really the making of this hostel. They keep everything immaculately clean, and are above and beyond the call of duty, even handing out chocolate bars to guests just because.

Everything was alright. Excellent location, always clean, extremely kind staff. It's a bit small but I always felt that the available space was ok for what I needed


Lovely staff and convenience location.


The beds were a little uncomfortable, but other than that, the facilitates were great. The staff was really laid back and cool- they washed my clothes for free, and since they knew I was going to be out really late the night before, they let me check out a few hours later. Just don't ask them for where to go (red Hot World Buffett and the cookie shake cafe are awesome). Really centrally located Nottingham. I'll be staying there again.


Friendly staff!


Very friendly and helpful... As usual. I always reccomend midtown. John

There was an ongoing problem with the wifi connection as it went continuously on-off and made it hard to stay connected.


Lovely welcoming and services.

Friendly & helpful staff. Great location.


The hostel was a bit cramped and dingy . I have stayed in nicer ones. The premises could do with some renovation. However, the staff were helpful and the facilities are OK. The location is very convenient and it represents good value for money.


Not the cleanest hostel and bed and mattress were quite worn. location right in the center comes at the price of no parking nearby (parked at an NCP car park 20 min away) and a high noise level at night on weekends.

This is a comfy wee place right in the centre of town - it's not very modern, but has excellent free wifi, a gorgeous kitchen, and a friendly, relaxing (not party-driven) atmosphere.


The staff is very helpful and chatty and accommodating.
