Liked: The dorm was clean and spacious and half-empty, and there were lots of vacant bathrooms. The hostel is very close to coach station, which is convenient.

Disliked: Showers were in poor condition: no hooks to hang a towel, or a broken lock.

Liked: It's in a good location, easily within walking distance of the attractions in the main city centre. It was also very clean and the beds are sturdy and a decent length for bunks. The bar on site is quite lively and not too expensive and it didn't seem to matter what time you rolled in at night. There was a good selection of maps and leaflets with information about Bristol and an internet computer that was free to use (tho slow).

Disliked: However, the whole place is a bit run down - the self catering kitchen has tiles hanging off the walls and broken cupboards and drawers. All of the beds in our room were hard and uncomfortable - I've slept in plenty of hostels and these were probably the worst mattresses I've come across so far, barely any softer than sleeping on the floor. Although there were lamps next to the bunks none of them had lightbulbs that worked and there were also plenty of bulbs missing in the bathrooms. Overall, not a place to spend much time in - this is a hostel for dumping your stuff in and then going out drinking - and not a place for a quiet night.

Liked: It's location .... It was very central

Disliked: The showers were just a little too spartan. Just a shelf in them and longer curtains would have helped and toilet roll supplies needed checking more often

Liked: Great backpackers in Bristol. In a pretty handy spot, very close to Cabot Circus and the bus station. Very clean rooms/bedding and comfortable. Nice pub downstairs, very cosy with lots of atmosphere. Good wifi, in the rooms also.

Disliked: There is a kitchen, but it could do with a bit more TLC, running low on cutlery and the microwave has about had it. But it got my dinner cooked! Just be aware that they do charge 5 pounds for parking (still a bargain in the UK!)

Liked: It's very close to the centre and the parking is only £5 a day. If you're planning on going out everynight of your stay in Bristol and could happily sleep comfortably on the floor, this place will be fine for you.

Disliked: Beds - it's one thing for hostel to be cheap and rough n ready but the beds here are literally a bit of material over bunk bed slats. I've stayed in hostels around the world and this is the worst for beds. At least they didn't have bed bugs I guess. Showers - grotty, my feet felt more dirty on leaving them. Toilets are unisex and constantly stinking and cold. The on site parking is pretty much in the smoking section for the bar and I was a bit nervous of getting my car damaged. I'm not sure they could offer on-site parking for everyone who books so while I could, it's probably a good idea to ring before going to make sure you'll have a space.

Liked: Fast internet access, the big conference room, absolutely clean sanitary rooms, always very kind and cheerful staff

Disliked: When I arrived there was a party in the ground floor. Nothing against it, but it would be great to know that before. But don't worry: it was just one night. Every night after I had a wonderful sleep

Liked: The owner was lovely as were his two dogs, and staff on front desk helpful also. Laundry service available and spacious rooms. Extremely short walk to the main shopping area and central Bristol. Great events for Halloween were organised, and tasty meals in the bar downstairs.

Disliked: No breakfast provided. No lockers in rooms. I was unable to get a wifi connection, although other people didn't have much trouble with it..

Liked: Pub below the hostel was pretty good - lots of young people there although could be noisy if trying to sleep.

Disliked: Reception was closed from 11am - 3pm which was not advertised. It is also confusing because one set of stairs leads into the bar which is shut during the day and doesn't allow you to walk through but you can't get back into the hostel to go back the other way. No lockers in rooms.

Liked: The staff are nice and its a fantastic location if you dont know bristol very well.

Disliked: If its an actual nights sleep you are after, dont count on it here. Firstly as people walk along the corridoor it actually shakes your room. While the ridiculously loud music in the bar is going on you wil not get a wink of sleep. And as for saterday night id suggest finding yourself a good seat in the bus station if you fancy a sleep. Its hard to decifer if the banging loud music or the shaking walls which are a result of the music are more annoying. Strangely enough the loud chattering of the drinkers outside are the least of your sleeping problems!

Liked: Staff were really friendly and happy to give us any information on local clubs and bars that may appeal to our tastes, and they got a pub next door which has great outside courtyard (despite being next to pub it is NOT noisy). Also we stayed in a 6 bedroom dorm and it had plenty of room and very clean, the beds were firm and just as I prefer them.

Disliked: There was nothing that I disliked.
