    Marked down for the slowness of checking in. Why there wasn't two people doing it on a Friday evening is beyond me.

    Great place! Nice vibe, a little far from the city center but still within walking distance of the free buses. Staff are friendly and helpful.

    Great standards as you'd expect from a YHA. My dorm room was clean but the bathroom itself was quite small. Very well run all the same with the hostel having a restaurant which served a great breakfast for an extra fee. Good location too as walking distance into the city centre and close to Deandgate-Castlefield metro. The hostel is a bit too large for an intimate atmosphere but staff can arrange many excursions from here and there is plenty of communal space on the ground floor.

    Generally a good stay. Only issue was the other guests who were very loud in the corridors. Staff seemed used to this and did not offer much help. There was also a fire alarm at 2am which wasn't responded to by staff. Fortunately it was a false alarm.

    Travelled all over the world and this is one of the dullest. The staff always seem moody or annoyed that you're asking for help. They promote nightly events but these never happen. They hike the prices up when they are at almost full capacity. There is often screaming European students running around. A girl passed out in the lobby and the staff didn't know how to react nor seem first aid trained. No internet in the rooms. The cleaners and chefs do a good job and the place is pretty clean.
