Fantastic Bristol Stay!”

This place fits every piece of Bristol - fun, eclectic, vintage vibe, and super diverse. It was SUPER noisy because of the bar/club music (either next door or below the hostel, I'm not too sure where it was at?), but it was also a Friday night. The hostel room (a 12-bed mixed) was super clean/cozy, and I felt like my belongings were perfectly safe. The staff was incredibly helpful and the breakfast was a huge perk! I've stayed at a fair share of hostels, and this one's on my top three of favorites. Highly recommend!

Great value!”

Before arriving I read alot of negative reviews, but I got surprised when I arrived. The staff will show you around and show you the facilities. You should expect noise until 2-3AM every night, but otherwise the hostel is great!. Comfy beds, clean and good shower / toilet facilities.

Surprising Good!”

Went to Bristol for a concert and although the reception was hard to find at first, everything else turned out to be a breeze! Would change the bed layouts in the room I was as it didn't give much space, but the mattresses were comfortable and the bedding was soft.
