Wasn't the cleanest or flashest but we fully loved staying there, the beds were incredibly comfy, we slept better there than at home! Such a gorgeous and random old building, great lil rooftop garden too

Location is really good and the building looks nice, but definitely can be improved by cleaning, improving the facilities, more heating and organising.


This hostel is awesome. A little strange, but awesome. Also its super cheap. When it was too late to book a shuttle bus, the manager drove me to the airport for about half the price I would have paid for a cab.

What a nice building ! We felt like being in Hogwards. Too bad the owner (who obviously bought this only YHA) is not taking care of the place well...


Fantastic! I have been away for two weeks and staying at different places and Fellworth House was the best, I didn't want to leave. Exceptional value for money.

Very cold public areas, very limited WiFi In-room heat on a timer that must be reset every hour, difficult to do when sleeping Long walk to central city area


A lovely building but some small things could have improved it. Heating would make this much more cosy! Maintenance of bathrooms (e.g. Having bins in girls toilet, having paper to wipe hands) would also be great.

Thank you and will improve on it.Cheers!!


Nice hostel, a walk to the centre down a hill but easy to get to. Wifi is only in one room downstairs. Good showers!


I booked a four dorm and got a single room. It was perfect :)
