The location is near the canal, it is beautiful! Facitilies are good, there is a lift and lockers. However, wi-fi connection was poor. I could use it only near the bar counter.

Comme tous les YHA de grandes villes peu de choses à redire... à part l'ambiance, pas assez convivial.

Great hostel in lovely location but a bit hard for me to find. Was very impressed and would definately choose it again if I am in Manchester. Very helpful staff.
