Liked: Great location and clean.

Disliked: Very hard to find by car due to no sign on the road side of the building, and unclear sign on the pedestrian side. They should advise where the cheaper carpark is too. Also towels not included. Could hear a noisy extractor vent all night.

Liked: Friendly and helpfulness of staff as I have not hostelled previously.

Disliked: Perhaps the ease of obtaining access to the suitcase store. Although there was no problem at all, I felt there was no check on who was given the 'key'. Not a fault of the hostel, and can happen at any hostel but a general comment. Occasionally, it is sad that some guests are not so considerate when returning to their room late at night/early morning - talking loudly and letting doors slam. However, overall a good experience at Bristol YHA.

Liked: I love the friendly staff, good customer service, the location is fine although I found it a bit difficult to locate but was my fault. The place was very neat, I actually surprised when I got there. Yeah! It was an awesome experience, being my first time in using such facility. Great job! Keep it up!

Disliked: The only problem was the noise from outside the building. I would suggest that a sound proof windows be fitted in. Anyway, I wouldn't know if the hostel has got one because the window was open because of heat....

Liked: The communal area's are very nice the whole place has a very cosmopolitan feel and has a good atmosphere. The hostel is a really nice old building situated on the quayside.
