My check-in was made by a member of staff which was not well trained, it was his first night working at the hostel and he was left alone taking care of everything. Off course he was a little bit lost. The hostel has an excellent location, the room was spacious but had a funny smell, The atmosphere of the hostel was nice, being easy to interact with other travelers.
Bed wasn't properly cleaned, not really a common space. Right on the harbour, good for a place to sleep
Magnificent Youth hostel with plenty of spaces to rest, watch tv, read books or magazines. But, on the other hand the staff should be more aware when groups of students come to the hostel. They can be really noisy and do not respect other YH lodgers. All receptionists very attentive, helpful and kind.
Good location, along the quay, very central. Very secure-key cards required to get around the hostel. Also when I dropped my bag off early in the morning, I was told I could check in at 2pm (it says 5pm on the website and in the reservation email), so that was good. - Few minor negatives, no soap dispenser in the en suite bathrooms and very squeaky doors in the corridors were a bit of a nuisance at night. A dash of WD40 would sort it. :-)
Friendly staff happy to help. Hostel was in great location

Stayed on a Monday night so it was quiet, just what I needed after a long travel time and too many late nights. All good at the hostel, nice and clean, reception friendly and swift, breakfast was good and the whole experience was tops. Easy to walk to train station next morning. Will be back another time.
Overall it wasn't too bad but it is very loud during the day and night. The staff are neither friendly nor rude, quite neutral and the facilities were okay. Weren't squeaky clean but weren't disastrous either! 5pm earliest check in though
Good location, facilities, staff. Much better than the 2 other hostels I tried in Bristol. The weakest point was the atmosphere, but no complain as it was quiet after a long day walk.
Fantastic hostel that is close to the docks. It was very easy to find and the facilities and the rooms were clean. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a high quality place to stay for a cheap price.
Some areas could have walls wiped cleaner..simple.
The biggest advantage of this hostel is that it is the better one out of two in Bristol. The location is perfect. However, all other aspects are average the least to say. Bathrooms and toilets could have been a little better organized.
both dorm and bathroom were very clean; also, the hostel is placed in a great location. I have nothing to complaint.
