    So long as you remember the whole you get what you pay for thing this place is great. Very good for a super cheap hostel. Location is close enough to the centre of town you can easily walk in, peak District is right on the doorstep, lots of people were staying for work away from home. Staff were lovely, and there were plenty of loos for the amount of people staying. Main downsides was, they could really use some lockers in the rooms & somewhere to hang coats.

    Staff were fantastic, super welcoming, helpful, accomodating, and friendly. The property is a bit out of central Sheffield, but it's easily accessible by tram or via a 20-minute walk. Should you find yourself in Sheffield and need reasonable accommodations, it's a great choice.

    We had a good stay at the hostel. Park your car down the hill a bit as it is very steep. Our sink was a bit gritty, that was the only moan, it gave the impression that the rooms hadn't been cleaned carefully. The staff were friendly and so were the other guests. The breakfast is cereal and toast.

    The staff were very friendly and the facilities were kept clean. Very good cleaning crew. However, one guest was absolutely disgusting. He would leave his smelly clothes in the room and the room stank because of him. It shouldn't be allowed to have unhygienic and unsanitary guests, especially in these pandemic times. It's a hostel, not a homeless shelter.

    Walkable to city centre location. Hostel is up a very steep hill so may be difficult to access for some. Staff were friendly and helpful upon check in and check out was as easy as putting keys into a lock box. Room was basic and sheets could have been fresher, the bed I stayed in was very rickety and one leg collapsed during the night, but didnt disturb my sleep so I cant grumble. Shower and toilet facilties very basic and a little grotty but fine in a pinch. Will use again if in Sheffield.

    Scruffy! The female dorm smelled like a stable. The floor hadn't been hovered for days. The bed sheets weren't changed between the guest I saw on my first night and the guest of following night. Very likely I slept too in the previous guest(s) sheets. The staff was helpful and present if something was needed, but I had 2 tell them 2 days in a row that the toilets didn't have paper. Overall dirty, I shortened my stay as the place was really unpleasant. I do not recommend.

    What a weird hostel. I was lucky I managed to check in because after that I never saw anyone from staff to ask for towels or keys for the locker room. The bedrooms don’t look like they’ve been cleaned in a while (loads of spiders and spider webs on walls and bedsheets don’t look fresh). It is very very basic - fine for 1 or 2 nights. But I hope I won’t ever have to stay here again
