+ Yummy breakfast Cosy "living room" for everyone Good equipment in the kitchen Good security system (card keys) Clean rooms Good organisation of arrival/ departure, mark beds, ... 24h reception Well thought power points next to everyone's bed Free food storage in the kitchen Lockers in the bedrooms - Quite loud - next to a canal (once party boat laying there) Receptionists didn't give good recommendations what to do/ explore/ trips I only got a city map because I asked for it --> I would stay there again! :-)

Hi, unfortunately (and it is not the hostel's fault, obviously), two of my roommates snored heavily during the night (and they were not old people ;-) ). As an inexperienced Hostel user, I did not think about bringing earplugs... Also, the showers (I was in block D I believe, in all cases in the lower part of the building) did not have a curtain and although they were good as such, it is not possible to (for example) leave a small bag on the floor for it to stay dry.

Hi, thanks for your review, sorry about the snorers :( I'm not sure your comment about the showers relates to our hostel as we don't have a block 'D' and all our showers do have curtains. Nevertheless we hope you had a great time in Manchester and hope to see you again soon.

So, I really I liked the location, it was a great starting point in an interesting place and you only need about 10-15 minutes to walk to the main attractions! The rooms, the bathrooms and the kitchen were all very clean! What I did not like was that most of the time the staff was in their room talking to each other and sometimes don't even notice when someone wants to order something or check in. But they still were really nice.

Thanks very much for your review and feedback, it's good to hear the staff were really nice but we're sorry to hear they were in the back office chatting instead of on reception, this certainly shouldn't be the case and I have shared your feedback with our reception manager to make sure this doesn't happen in the future. We hope you had a lovely tie in Manchester anyhow and hope to see you again.
