    I would recommend this place because the atmosphere was amazing people laughing and joking and generally having a good time only thing I would say is don't go on a Friday night as it's a bit loud at night also the location of the property is a bit of a problem especially if you don't know the area. The place it's self was lovely clean and friendly no matter what your race ethnicity or sexuality. I have also marked down for the price as it's a little expensive but great choice for brekky

    Overall it was adequate but that was it. The bed was comfortable but squeaked constantly through the night even from breathing and the dorm me and my friend stayed in had an individual in the room that may have been on something while in our room and woke up having night terrors at some point that put us a little on edge. I’ve stayed in a lot better hostels in the UK for the same price so was disappointed to pay £50 for 2 beds.

    Hardly anyone around except a woman with a hacking cough next door to us, all night. In these times of Covid I'm not sure what had happened to her. I saw one guest for a few minutes and even he disappeared, never to be seen again. No-one answered the door or phone when we arrived: felt like a ghost house. Notices everywhere warning about drugs. TV on constantly but not working properly (small issue). On a very steep street so you need care if you have a car and are looking to park.

    The hostel had a general grubbiness to it and felt like it could do with a really good clean. The other people staying were very inconsiderate to other guests, coming back loudly at 1.30am and they proceeded to have what sounded like an after party in their room until 5.30am!! Then at 6am someone decided to start singing very loudly outside. I definitely would not recommend staying here if you like a clean and quiet place to enjoy Sheffield from.

    This is one of the grottier hostels I've stayed in. Our room smelled like a mixture of cigarette ash and urine. One of the two toilets was disgustingly blocked when we arrived and remained that way until we left. And to top it all off, the staff messed up the room allocations (by their own admission) so that the twin room we had booked was not available and we had to have a double instead. Our choices were share a double bed or sleep on an airbed on the grim floor. Only £5 refund offered...
