    This place is amazing. Super clean, beds and common areas are comfortable, warm and cozy. The staff are friendly and engaging. A unique experience rather than the hostel norm. Highly recommend. Great value for the money and I extended my stay I loved it so much.

    Lovely peaceful location. Cooked and read in the comfortable lounge and kitchen overlooking the river. The boat is furnished in a very plush way, super clean and very calm place to sleep.

    I know you're thinking it, the boat doesn't rock it's stabilised so it's only when another boat goes passed. Awesome atmosphere, very clean facilities, kitchen well stocked and beds comfortable. Would highly recommend staying here.

    Highly recommended hostel. Great location in central bristol. I stayed in the 4 bed female dorm with a friend. More spacious then I expected with an area under the bed for storage although no lockers or a mirrror although there are mirrors in the bathrooms and a full length one in the main corridor. Great new fitout, very clean. Bags can be held and facilities used after check out. Would definitely stay again!

    Incredibly clean and comfortable hostel, and the carpeted floors feel fantastic. Plenty of bathrooms and showers for the guests, although the bathrooms are a tad small (you are on a boat after all). The common area is very nice, but not the most conducive to social interactions between guests. If you want a very clean and comfortable stay, and aren't looking to meet other travelers however, Kyle Blue is perfect for you.

    Being able to stay on the water in the boat was an awesome experience that was totally worth the price! I do wish that there had been lockers with locks to put luggage in as I felt a little uncomfortable just having my suitcase underneath my bed and having an unlocked cabin. The free hot chocolate, tea, and/or coffee was a nice touch even though I didn't have the chance to have it. Staff members were very nice and helpful. Was a bit of a walk to the city center but not too bad, nice view.

    WARNING if you’re a solo traveler looking for fun activities and a social scene DO NOT COME HERE. The place was clean and all but holy crap it was very unwelcoming and just not a good experience if you’re traveling alone. If you’re a group or couple maybe come here and don’t expect to talk to anyone else but the people you’re with. Also the wi-fi is really bad so make sure you have a good data plan.
