The ventilation of the room is very poor and it is smelly and hot. And people keep shouting outside the room in the corridor.


Wi-Fi should be free!!

Great place, great location. Ticks all the boxes!


Felt like a hotel, you have to pay for absolutely everything and there's no WiFi in the bedroom. Even after paying the fee. Not to mention it's not located in anywhere great. Won't be returning.


The hostel was big, spacious and clean and in a pretty location right on the canals. But like most yha's you have to pay for wifi and there were a few big groups of people/school kids.


This an excellent hostel.


The YHA should really offer mixed rooms. It's unreasonable to break up travelling parties because of something as stupid as gender. Additionally, having to pay for things like wi-fi, towels, etc is excessive. These are services most hostels provide for free. Aside from this, the YHA will do; especially considering cheap accommodation in Manchester is hard to come by.
