Shower-tray of shower half a floor up from room 3 was incredibly slippery: almost impossible to stand upright! TV in lounge far too complex for me

I only stayed one night but the boys at reception were lovely. The atmosphere was friendly and made it feel like a sleep over at a friends place. It was clean and literally 2 minutes walk from the centre :):):)


Staff very friendly and accommodating, kitchen facilities and loving very nice.


Very friendly and would recomend the hostel to my friends John


Perfect stay. Very homely environment. The staff were very helpful. Fantastic location... right in the centre of Nottingham. Thanks for the great stay!

Excellent location, helpful staff. Nice common room, especially the comfortable sofa. Free & fast speed wifi. Everything is nice except the bed staff is a bit dirty and uncomfortable.


Great location in the middle of the city, it's a bit noisy at night at times but if you want to stay in the city that's to be expected. Staff super helpful, hostel has everything you need.


The staff was really nice and friendly ! I had a good time with them and with others peoples.


The location is very good and the staff is really nice


Really appreciate that staff was kind enough to help with my heavy luggage to bring it upstairs. Bathrooms and common area were clean. It felt more like friendly house than hostel. Definitely would stay again.


Nice small hostel. Staff very friendly and relaxed. May be a bit disappointment for people looking for perfect professionalism, these guys are clearly there because they like it and not because it's their job and sometimes you may notice it, but personally it felt great to be somewhere where people know your name and care about you because you are a person and not because you are a customer. Thanks guys!

It is a functional hostel, very well located, fare beds and silence for a good night sleep. However is not the place to have an "experience", as those hostels that promote interaction, nights and tours over the town.


The staff are very laid back and mid week it's quite quiet with not many people about. It's in the centre of Nottingham and very close to all you need.


Great little hostel with really friendly staff! Will definitely return if I'm in in the area again.
