Nothing wrong with the place really and it's very near a large supermarket. It is out of town a bit, but the staff were nice and the people were okay.


It was a interesting experience. I think it worths as its costs. Location is not far away from city center. It takes about 20min in tram. But at first it was very difficult to find it. Maybe many people will surprise at its location. Bathroom was good. But the room i stayed was very cold and damp. And bed cover was also damp, so i felt bad. Kitchen was a little bit dirty. Entirely dirty and confused although facilities were good.


Very poor impression I arrived at 6 pm and was told they had no bed for me. My reservation had not been acknowledged by them despite Hostelworld having sent request and deposit to them !!


Always a good hostel, just somewhere to sleep. Triple bunks aren't great anywhere though. Great location, love the area.


A really good hostel unlike its Leeds sister. Clean, spacious and safe. A bit far from the center but good value for the money


Friendly guy at reception, very helpful. Clean and comfatable.

This hostel is ok. The bed are comfortable, the bathrooms are clean and the showers are hot. In short, this hostel is average and in some areas it definitely needs improvement. The lock on the door was a code, and I put in the wrong code one day and the door opened anyway...slightly concerning! Breakfast provided isn't really a full breakfast, and the fact that the food is often let out all day is also concerning. Stay for a couple of nights if you need to, but expect that it won't be that great


Bit of an awkward place, we were staying for a night out in Sheffield, but quick and easy taxis into the town centre. Great place, really clean and tidy and the room was lovely that we stayed in! Four of us in a single room, a bunkbed and two single beds. Such a great atmosphere that we all loved and we are thinking of staying again later in the year. Breakfast in the morning too. All round a really cheap and cheerful place that has spacious, tidy and clean facilities.

Worst hostel on my trip. Bad location. Receptionist played computer games when I checked in. Rest of the hostel seemed to be deserted until 1 - 4pm when loads of people arrived, walked along the foor and made noise. Kitchen was dirty.


Great little hostel, friendly staff. Even let me use the loo after checking out, and my business in the city was done! Thank you! One thing to consider, having water or teas in the room would be really helpful, it's a shame you have to travel to the kitchen in the night when if you're just a little thirsty

The hostel was fine and good value for money for the UK. I stayed there for a conference/work, so I welcomed the quiet atmosphere. Facilities were clean, there was hot water, and a radiator in the room. The staff were great and waited until I arrived for check in after hours.


I'm disappointed with my stay at Russel Scott Hostel in Sheffield. Most of all: it was extremely cold in the hostel. I slept in my winter cap! Hostel is located 30 minutes by walk to town centre.
