Any online bookings made for more than 5 people will be considered invalid. Also… we are quiet premises suitable for the quiet traveller. We do not accept hen/stag or party groups in any of our properties.

The Igloo Backpackers Hostel, Annexe and Pods, are proud to be the city's original and most popular quality stopover for budget-minded backpackers, tourists, families, weekenders and overseas job-seekers seeking rest and recuperation in a warm, clean, safe and friendly home-from-home environment that processes history, good people and a chilled atmosphere.

Located within the city centre, we are surrounded by shops, pubs, eat-ins, take-outs, and plenty of great sights and cool sounds. There is a 24 hour supermarket just a jump away, and the Victoria market and a Tesco's within 1-5 mins walk. We are less than a 7 minutes walk from the hip and vibrant Nottingham city centre and within walking distance from all the major city centre tourist attractions. Over the years we have welcomed over 50,000 people from all over the world and to this day we continue to be an ideal place for close friendships to be created and our guests return year after year.
Igloo offers cool & cozy private accommodation as well as shared dormitory rooms, using mainly up-cycled and secondhand furniture, with added touches of top notch comfort features (hello memory foam mattresses, flat screen TVs & free WiFi) and unique personality (including murals in the rooms spray painted by talented local graffiti artist Smallkid)... we are truly passionate to show how hostels should look and feel these days and we hope you'll come see for yourself!. A shared kitchen is fully-equipped for self-catering and includes free tea, coffee and sugar. High quality bathrooms are shared and there is a laundry service available on request.

Our reception building is located on 100 Mansfield Road, with plenty of maps, flyers, and guest computer and board games.

Igloo Annexe is just a stones throw across the street from the reception and Igloo Pods is just 3 doors up the road so we are never far away!

All of our buildings are environmentally aware, using eco-friendly and recycled products wherever possible. We are proud to have been awarded a Certificate Of Excellence by Trip Advisor for 2016.

For all reservations of 4 nights or more, a 50% non-refundable deposit payment for the full stay may be charged upon booking.

Please note: we take a £20 key-deposit per set of keys upon arrival, which will be returned to you when checking out. Check-in time is after 3pm and Check-out time is before 10:30 am. If cancelled up to 3 days before the date of arrival, no fee will be charged. If cancelled later, 100% the booking will be charged. In case of no show, the total price of the reservation will be charged. (Please note that the property reserves the right to pre-authorise payment 3 days prior to arrival date).

For all buildings, you are welcome to check in earlier and leave your luggage stored in the office (our reception is open from 7am – 1am, 7 days a week). Please note that Photo-ID is required from all guests when checking in.

Important Payment Info: For all bookings arriving on a Friday or Saturday night, full payment will be charged to the card the booking was made with up to 3 days prior to date of arrival (as this is the only way for us to make sure we are not holding a booking with an invalid card). Should you wish for payment to be charged to a different card or split payment over several different cards, then please be sure to contact our reception team with new card details on the number below at least 4 days prior to your arrival date. As a general rule, any booking that is for less than 4 nights and not arriving on a Friday or Saturday night will be ‘pay on arrival’, but we reserve the right to charge payment prior to arrival date – not being able to obtain payment might result in your booking being cancelled.

    Not a single negative to mention. Staff were professional and friendly and accommodated for everything we needed. Rooms were up to the standard advertised and expected and proved great value for money.

    No bar so atmosphere gets a neutral review. We stayed in a private room, it was clean and good overall. The location is great, being close to the city centre for bars and clubs, we where watching a gig in Rock city which was about 15 minutes walking distance from the hostel, The staff at the front desk where lovely. The showers where on the small side but hot and with good pressure. Would stay again.

    Clean and pleasant - had all the facilities I needed. A bit of noise conning from the street but I guess you would expect that in a city. This was my first sty in a backpacker hostel and I would definitely use it again because it saved a lot of money and I could do my own food .That suits me better anyway because there are things I can't eat.

    Loved the room, great facilities. Had a sofa and a tv :) the room was pretty dusty though - this didn't effect my trip at all though. Close to the city centre, on quite a noisy street but I found ear plugs worked great. Also a bit cold in the morning so make sure you take a jumper and some pants! (If you go in the winter). I was in a private room and only saw 1 oyhrt person so not muchbatmosphere - I put this down to when I visited and my room choice though! Also great use of parking space!

    Very Good

    The location of the hostel was great. However, it’s the bedroom facilities that let this hostel down. The bunk beds were old, unstable, and loud. We stayed for four nights and none of us slept through the night. I highly suggest this hostel updates it’s bunk bed frames as this is what made us not want to stay again. The kitchen facilities were great and the bathrooms were clean. However if you do not get a good nights sleep then it really changes your trip. Also no chargers near beds for phones.
