Only stayed one night but would of liked to stay another night. Very warm and relaxing if you just need a place to stay.

The bed was comfortable though I'm not sure if fresh sheets were provided. Even then the shets were clean. However the bathrooms were not that clean. These are not cleaned everyday and there are huge moulds in the shower area. The staff was helpful and accessible. The kitchen was also not very clean. The room also had a smell and seemed that it was not properly sanitised.

The lady at the reception was very friendly. However, the room had damp issues which made our stay unpleasant and difficult. Also, the residents above our room came back to the hostel at 3:00 am shouting and playfighting. We went past that as you expect these incidents in hostels. However, they were very inconsiderate towards everybody else and made a lot of noise until 9.00 o’clock in the following morning. We hardly had any sleep. They left the main entrance door open and we had to get up and

Very disappointed, the hostel was damp and unclean. It was expensive for what we got. The location was dodgy and we were put in a twin room after booking a double. The staff were slow and unorganised. So bad we left and went to stay in a travelodge. Hands down the worst hostel experience we have ever had.

First night I didn't stay in the room that I booked. They said me to stay with other 5 people (I had booked single room). I didn't pay for it for deal. The day after I moved my own room. It was down stairs and near the kitchen so there was always food smells in the room. There was not a place to chat with the others just the smelling kitchen. There was always a disturbing humidity smell. They really need help for the building and how relationship education with the customers. It was pretty cold.

A joke of a business. They took our deposit but had no beds for us or plenty of other people that also had bookings. Staff offered no help whatsoever so we were faced with walking back to city to pay top dollar for a city centre hotel on a weekend. Whole thing is a sham. Hope the place closes down as soon as possible, would hate to think people from outside of the UK have come or will come to Sheffield and experience this as this really should not happen. Hope they get whats coming to them

I found it difficult to find the hostel (get the wrong way twice), so you are traveling alone it will be better if you find the way first during daytime. at night I saw some teenagers wander around playing(and police car as well), so it may not be a problem. If you know the way, its not that far from tram station (just within 10 minutes walk). Slope in front door and stairs inside , consider it if you have heavy suitcase(i have my backpack so its not a problem for me)

I have never felt so unwelcome at a hostel. The service was atrocious and when we checked in the member of staff tried to trick is into paying our 12% deposit twice once to hostel works and once to the hostel directly.

walking into the hostel i was able to walk straight threw to the reception without being greeted with anyone, i had to wait 12 minutes at the front of the hostel saying hello relatively loudly until someone came and greeted me, the front door was wide open demonstrating that security was at a minimum as if i can walk in unnoticed anyone can. the receptionist was unprofessional and untrained, he demonstrated that he was unable to finalise the transaction purely because he was not taught
