Not bad but not satisfactory ”

Maybe after living YHA Brighton and having a too much high expectation to YHA Bristol, so it is a little disappointed experience for us. No lift can reach the top floor and the only lift hasn't work till we left.(Really hard to move our luggages) The common shower room was not very convenient: the shelf was not fixed and I couldn't feel the ventilator was working when taking shower; only two hooks behind the door were easy to make the cloths wet; and the shower nozzle was difficult to control it...There are 3 beds in my room: the single bed doesn't have bed light, and the double-deck bed has the bed lamp and sockets just like yha Brighton but all of them didn't work. So different experience from that in Brighton I have to say

Great Location, Acceptable Facilities.”

I traveled solo to Bristol, and I found this hostel very convenient to stay. I like the surroundings. It's located exactly in the front of the canal and just next to a very cosy cafe called society cafe. City centre is just in a walking distance. The room is acceptable and clean, but I don't like the shower room though. It doesn't have any part to hang our clothes. They have a cozy cafe and restaurant as well as a communal kitchen with complete facilities.

There are a few negative reviews complaining about some facilities not working made me almost cancelled my reservation with YHA at last minute. Thank God i didnt. I had a good stay there. Water heater, shower, tap water, toilet working well. Room heater isn't that hot but is working fine. Bed is pretty comfy. Staff cleaned my room in the morning. Upon check in, counter staff also reminded to call out within 24 hrs if any problem with the room facilities. Location of the hostel is superb. Cafe at its 1st floor is pretty affordable and opens til late. So its very convenient and very much value for the money.

YH is located centrally and it has friendly and helpful staff. One can explore Bristol and the areas nearby by making it a base. Self catering kitchen is quite spacious allowing budget travelers to cook their own meals.
