Positive Reviews

Food on tap at all times!

A nice cold beer overlooking the canal and before a night on the town is just great. Even better and arriving back in the early hours, they’ll happily serve you a hot snack. *Some 5 star hotels: please note!

Super breakfast

Sometimes you need a pinch to remind yourself it’s a hostel! Breakfast is great and varied and served with a smile. They've even got those fab veggie sausages!

“Hold the main page”… there’s free parking in Manchester!

This is a great hostel, run by dedicated, friendly and efficient staff. But, forget about them!! …FREE PARKING near the centre of the city is as rare as hen’s teeth and it’s worth staying here just for that! Combine the two factors, though and the attraction of this place is irresistible.

Negative Reviews

It stinks

Rooms have that smell associated with lack of TLC and a need for bucket loads of disinfectant and cleaning fluids.

Replace en-suites – tout suit

En-suites have the feel of a temporary sort of add-on to the room. Enormously small (*if that is possible!), they are not fit for purpose and frankly, don’t fit many people.

Bad Reception

The furniture in Reception could benefit from a thorough deep clean. Talking of ‘bad reception’; it’s totally lacking on the televisions in the rooms, because there aren’t any!
