    Nice & helpful staff. But the wall of my room was in fact a window with curtains, and we could hear the conversation of others in the adjoining common room and the light was coming through. Ok for one or two nights. Generous breakfast included.

    The location was great less than ten minutes walk to Leeds train station. The building is new and clean the standard of the bathrooms is very good though there were a few minor maintenance problems. Unfortunately there were no lockers available during my visit but they did hold my valuables in the office for me. I was told that new more secure lockers were on order. Overall it is a great place to stay.

    Wonderful value for money all round. Extremely clean, comfortable and highly organised. Very friendly and supportive staff. Just bring ear plugs to sleep with. Every time a person in the bathroom above used the sink (I was in my own room), I could hear the water very loudly. Also being on the ground floor (not all rooms are on the ground floor) I could hear everything that happened in reception too.

    The hostel location is good, it is nearby to the city centre. Though I slept in a bed that made much noise.

    Not too bad, but common space is very small and awkward, atmosphere is weird, stayed in the same room as staff, the owner kept talking to me and asking me things all the time - would prefer less talking from the owner. Shower is awful - kept being burning hot then going down to freezing and then burning hot on the same setting in a spare of 1 minute... The place is clean and quiet though

    Staff weren't professional and argued in front of me as to who would show me around. Facilities are basic but adequate.

    The hostel is fine for a place to sleep however that’s it. The hot water wasn’t working while I was there and the customer service was very average. It was incredibly overpriced for what it was and I’d recommend staying somewhere else if you have the option..
