Everything was fine, but the duvet seemed to have been cleaned pretty long time ago.

While not the closest to the city centre, YHA Manchester is set in very nice surroundings and is a comfortable walk from all the main sites of Manchester. I had but a brief stay, but enjoyed the city and the hostel immensely!
