"Excellent value, nice private rooms and fantastic location for the middle of town. Staff were wonderful as well and very supportive while I had a breakdown while trying to sort 14 people into rooms"

17 April 2012 Anna would recommend this property

Liked: Nice area, clean and fresh decoration, helpful staff. Bedroom had a sink and lockers. Bathroom had a toilet and shower (both separately lockable) with a small hall between the two that could be locked so plenty of space to put your clothes while showering and dry off afterwards. There was a lounge for guests and a mezzanine area open to the cafe and bar section so there were plenty of comfy sofas available. Self catering kitchen was large with plenty of equipment.

Disliked: The beds were a little shorter than standard and it would be better if the internet was a bit cheaper but otherwise this is a good hostel.

Liked: it's quiet and conducive for staying

Disliked: too little showers and the shower motion light turn itself off after only a few seconds and need the user to move near the door for it to turn on again, causing me to spend more of my time in it in darkness.

Liked: Staff very friendly. Very flexible about storing luggage before and after checking in/out. Very central location. Easy to find.

Disliked: Should have access to Princes St where most people arrive from. Poorly cleaned and maintained. Noisy at night facing waterside. Rear faces busy road so lots of shaking from traffic. Not a place for a quiet stay.

Liked: Very close to town centre and all the pubs/clubs/shops. The nearest set of pubs are about a two minute walk away! Set on the canal so very scenic. Room was clean and comfortable. Staff helpful and nice atmosphere. Literally only used YHA as a bed for the night, didnt use any of their facilities (internet, lounge etc) so can't rate these unfortunately. Definitely recommended as a place to stay!!

Liked: It's location is great! It is very near to clubs and the city centre. Bristol is a beautiful city and YHA is a great plave to stay while you are in it.

Disliked: The bathrooms are very dirty and have no air-conditioning so the smell is very bad.

Liked: New, tidy and stylish. Kitchen is very well supplied.

Disliked: The place is quite a rip-off for what you get. Seriously, who charges for the use of computers/wi-fi these days? And the price is not even reasonable - 8 pound for a day of Internet access, like we were in 1995 or something. Add to that 3 pounds of YHA supplement, and another 5 pounds for breakfast, and your 15-pounds overnight stay is already up to 30 - to share a tiny bedroom with 3 other people. At that price range, you may be wondering if it wouldn't be a better deal to get a private room in a B&B elsewhere. On top of that, staff is dry and unfriendly - I suppose they must charge extra for a smile. And the in-house bar/cafe - guess what - charges high-street prices. Doesn't make a lot of sense for a hostel, no matter how modern it is. I guess the "inspire all, broaden horizons, adventure and discovery" spirit they advertise at the hostelbooker's overview stops right at the door.

Liked: Interesting conversion of old property. Excellent location for centre of Bristol.

Disliked: Not enough noise reduction internally - ie old echoing building and sound travelling through walls and floors. It really, really needs double glazing or something to prevent noise coming in from outside. It would appear that much clubbing happens directly opposite till 4.00- or 5.00 in the morning. This just isn't something that people need. There were two groups of young children there and a good amount of middle aged folk too. The 'twin' room was a bunk bed room - not what was expected either. There was only one room key between the two of us which meant quite a lot o running up and down 4 floors

Liked: Central location. It was newly refurbished, and the rooms were clean and functional. Each bed had its own light and plug point, unlike some hostels I have stayed in, where there is only one plug socket between 8 people.

Disliked: Because its so central it could be quite noisy, but I had ear plugs and slept fine.
