    Enjoyed my stay here. Hostel was clean, decently located, and staff were friendly. Had the breakfast one morning and was pleasantly delighted by the selection - eggs, sausage, bacon, beans, coffee, toast, pastries, juices and fruits! Would recommend if staying in Manchester

    I spent a weekend on YHAs hostels in Manchester (Fri) and Liverpool (Sat), so same review for both. These are truly excellent hostels, with comfy bed, enough space in the room, good shower and toliet, great food for reasonable prices (had breakfast in both places and dinner in Manchester), and the right attention on details (for example, plug to charge devices in every bed and with USB, so you don't need the UK adaptor). Staff was also super nice in both places and I felt welcome and at home

    The location and the main reception area are great, however the bathrooms in this hostel are really sad and there's no lock for the locker so remember to bring your own. Although the reception area is nice, there was no music, no people, no atmosphere. The hostel was just ok, the staff was lovely tho :)

    I was alright. The other people in our room were pretty noisy. There were bright lights on outside our window all night, geese and people were loud all night. The bathroom was small and stinky. Other than that the place seemed nice and the people were very nice.

    Mostly made up of junior school groups and as such lacked the hostel atmosphere I was looking for as a solo traveller. Bathrooms/showers were tiny and the beds on the small side. A 20min Walk into town. Would have benefited from some organised activities. Having a laundry was handy.

    I never make any comments. This is a good chain of hostels. The location of this hostel is not in the city and it takes around 25 minutes to get to the city. The bathroom had an unpleasant smell and my roommates would leave the lights on so as to keep the fan going on. I commented a staff member about this and she said all bathrooms smelled a bit.
