Staying here was a good choice for me preparing to live in London. Some people might complain it's far from the center, no kitchen, not super clean etc.. But think the average of hostels in London. It's not like Portugal. Don't expect too much and enjoy this busy savage cool urban city. Considering the price, I was lucky that I could stay here. Good enough. I would stay longer if the weekend price is not expensive. Anyway, thank you for a pint of bear, Robert.

Nice to stay. I love the retro small theatre inside. It would be nice if the staff ask me the preference of bed, lower or upper, when there are some vacant. The place to eat is desperately crowded in breakfast time. I think extra space and some toaster are needed.

Hi Asuka! Thanks for the feedback. We're glad that you enjoyed our facilities! As for the bed preference, feel free to let the staff know for we will be more than happy to oblige! Don't forget about our other breakfast spaces as well such as the downstairs bar and chillout room where you can have your breakfast. Hope to see you again soon Asuka! Cheers, Patrick

Cosy. A good example as one of hostels in hostel paradise Portugal. The location is not too centre of the city, but the quality of this hostel overcomes that slight disadvantage. Now, I remember that I forgot to try Porto wine tasting there.

Hi Asuka. Thank you for your comments. We're really happy to hear that you loved the hostel. About the location, with a 10 minute walk you can get to any of the most improtant places to visit in the city. I think we can consider this city centre. heheheh =) Next time, we'll offer you some Porto Wine, so you don't miss the experience. Have a nice trip and see you soon. Cheers.

I like that kind of attempt to try to be unique with interior design. But, I guess it's less vivid than it used to be, maybe because each material of furniture, floor etc. doesn't suit well to maintain. The room door is noisy when it's closed. Kitchen is not so spacious. The reception staff is not always there... But, overall, It can be said that it's good hostel. Just, the average of hostel in Portugal is too good.

Interesting interior design, spacious and nice view rooftop, 3 SECONDS from the near station, free entry to sister hostels, nice staff... Unfortunately, I couldn't sleep one night with erroneous emergency alarm, but they honestly refunded it.

# Good: No shoes policy /Cleanness /Great Taiwanese careful consideration /Sophisticated audio & visual environment /High quality kitchen /a locker for each guest / Near supermarket (but a bit far from the city's centre). # Not Good: The two toilets are not separated from the shower, so when the both are occupied for the shower,,,,you know...

View Property Reply

hi Asuka, thank you for your positive feedback and comments. We are always working hard to improve the facilities at the Light House Hostel. And I assure you that your comments have been noted. And we are a new hostel and therefore once we have more cash flow we shall improve things more and more...There is an ensuite in one of the rooms also and a toilet and shower downstairs. We have 4 toilets and showers in total. Maybe you thought we only had two! Thank you for your feedback and recommendations. Hope to see you again in the future... jymata, peace, John & The Light House Hostel.

# There is a spacious kitchen, but no oil. Can openers are broken. The heat of the range is weak. # WiFi is used in the bar on the ground floor. You can also catch it on first floor, but so weak. Additionally, this hostel is huge, but wall sockets are very few. It isn't in dorm room and the bar. There are some sockets on the bottom of the small PC booth next to the bar, but it is banned to use it unless you pay the fee,even when nobody uses the PC booth.

Just perfect except not free WiFi and breakfast . But, I think backpackers sometimes forget about Internet. And in this hostel, there is 24 hours drying room that is just for drying wet clothes! It's amazing.

As a result, the rate is may be not good superficially. In this term, lounge and kitchen are under construction. Even though the rate is not good, I think here is good hostel, especially the price on weekend is cheaper than other hostels in Manchester.

Great hostel but WiFi is not free. And even though weekend price is basically high, it is too expensive like Amsterdam. It can be said about the sister hostel in Manchester too.

Thanks you for your review!! We do now have free WI-FI in our common areas, so next time you are in Manchester we hope to see you at Hatters!!

Super high cost performance like lower price countries (except weekend) . Free WiFi, Kitchen, laundry and drying machine in each dormitory room. Free Breakfast, towel, drinks and fruits. Unfortunately, the heater of kitchen is weak, and there is no free vegetable oil. The shower room in the dorm is not separated from toilet, so a little bit inconvenient. Moreover, it takes 30 minutes to walk to city's centre. However, its inexpensive price covers all of these poor things.

The lounge is graet. There are some amusements there. However, there is no locker, so we should deposit valuables at the reception. It's a little bit inconvenient.
