The facilities include a TV lounge, a shared kitchen, a bar, Internet access, a games room and a laundry.

Explore the harbour side and old city areas, and visit the magnificent Avon Gorge, Brunel’s suspension bridge or enjoy Bristol’s cultural base of theatres, museums, art galleries and thriving live music and club scene.

You should put some hooks up in the showers so people have somewhere to hang their towel and belongings. The entire corridor of floor 3 smelled strongly of urine. The elevator was very slow, it might help to put up signs directing people to the stairs. The process for borrowing a towel is needlessly complicated, I had to leave the hostel at 11:00 pm to get cash from a cash point, had to pay a £0.50 fee to get that cash and then went back to the hostel...all to take a shower.

Clean, good mattress. However, no light at my bed. Plug-in power in the room. Showers somewhat unpractical as inside the cabin there was no room to keep your towel and clothes dry. Also no hooks outside of the room.

Perfect location. Very friendly and helpful staff. The hostel was very clean overall. The only remark I have is the fact that there are only 2 toilets/showers on each floor. I stayed on the 4th floor, and the toilets and showers were occupied in the morning, so I went to the 3rd floor to see if they were free. But at the time the entire 2nd and 3rd floor were being used by a school, and they didn't want other guests to use the toilets/showers on their floors.

It's very clean and in a convenient location for both the railway station and the tourist sites. It's also somewhat fancy with games tables and a nice lounge.
