This is an older pub in Salford, and is a short walk to the Manchester city centre. The pub has a good selection of cask ales on tap and the staff were friendly and helpful. Room was old and dated. It had an en-suite shower (a new modern shower cubicle) however the toilet was outside the room. The room overlooked Chapel Street and as such was a little noisy. If you're after cheap inner city accommodation and you're not too fussy it is fine. I didn't eat there so I can't comment on the food.
This hostel is not really a youth hostel, it's more a bar with few bedrooms. When we arrived our room wasn't clean,we had to wait 20mins...it was 11pm.though the barman give us drinks for free! :) the staff is really nice but looks like they are not used to manage a hostel. If you are looking for a family hostel or a warm and safe place to stay,this one is not yours!
Very friendly staff but dirty rooms, also the TV dind't work so well.
Good location, and lovely staff. The bar underneath was nice, relaxed and friendly. Room contained everything we needed, but wasn't very clean. Would recommend, despite this.
The room wasn't very clean upon arrival. When we came back at the hotel after a night out in the Manchester city centre, we got assaulted by some of the pub guests who didn't let us get to our room because the pub was closing. We were physically attacked by them and the hotel staff refused to call the police. This made us really concerned about our safety during the rest of our stay. We had a fun weekend in Manchester, but we're definitely not going to stay in The Salford Arms again.

Despite booking a room and arriving on-time we found out it had already been given to someone else. They arranged for us to go across the road to stay instead but the rooms smelt of smoke at were not as we requested. We were given 3 badly cooked steaks in compensation but no free drinks as originally promised. We were left in no choice but to accept as we were running the Manchester Marathon the next day and most local hotels were already booked.
