    This is a great hostel to stay at. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Everything is explained to you. The beds are comfortable. Walking distance to the nearest transportation. Breakfast was good in my opinion. I had a wonderful time at this location and I hope you do the same! Would recommend and if I go back to Manchester, will definitely be staying here again! 10/10

    I'm a female in my upper 40's. YHA Manchester was my first Hostel stay, solo and to another country. I couldn't be happier that I choose YHA Manchester for my first Hostel experience. The staff was helpful and friendly, the food was great, the food and beverage prices were very reasonable. The prices for the room stay was great. I stood at YHA Manchester twice; once at the beginning of my 1 month trip, and again at the end of my trip; all my roommates were great.

    Lovely bright clean hostel, friendly staff, great location and breakfasts. For those under 5ft in height - be prepared for a good stretch climbing up to the first step to the bunk or into the bathroom. Beds a little squeaky but overall great value for money.

    Great hostel, friendly staff, free parking, bar. Stayed in a 4 bed private room which was comfortable. The location is great, right by the canal. Theres a great walk to Manchester centre with lots of bars,pubs, cafes and shops on the way. Maccies round the corner for your hangover breakfast, or you can get breakfast in the hostel. Got an extra hour to checkout.The shower 'pod' was a tad small and not the best shower. Also the smell on the 2nd floor landing outside the toilet wasn't pleasant.

    Bathroom/shower in room are convenient, but tiny. Location is nice and pretty but not necessarily convenient. Not close to either of main 2 train stations, and Northern Quarter was IMO the coolest area of the city. Lots of stuff in Deansgate area as well, though. From what I saw the atmosphere was pretty quiet, but it was also midweek in early October. Secure storage in rooms was very good. Beds chosen on first-come basis, not pre-assigned.

    Security was fine. Great lockers for 46L backpacks. Atmosphere was lacking and location was about a 15-20 minute walk to the centre. Cleanliness was fine, but overall was a little dingy. Have definitely stayed in nicer YHA’s. Facilities were fine and 4-bed dorm had an ensuite. Staff were lovely. The functional kitchen is probably the clinching point on this hostel.

    In a cool location, close to a lot of attractions. Basic rooms, en-suite is fairly average but all fine for a couple of nights. There is a big kitchen and communal spaces, but it wasn’t very social while I was staying

    It was far too loud through a hostel party that went on until 11 pm, which I could hear clearly in my room on the first floor. When that stopped, there were other loud parties that one could hear loud and clear over the water. When I left in the early morning, two belligerent and aggressive drunken guys were wanting to come in but didn't have their key cards. The staff on duty professionally asked for the room number and name, but only for one of the guys, not both, before letting them in.

    A bit expensive for what you get but overall ok . Pros : location and well equipped kitchen cons : tiny bathrooms/ rooms and no real atmosphere at the hostel as they have no age restriction policy
