Liked: So Clean !! Staffs are very helpful and welcoming and effiecent. The location is convenient and beautiful.

Disliked: In the bed room (I stayed in shared room with 4 beds). I like to have a separate light beside my bed. the swich is there but for some reason all of them don't work. That is very important. Because I like to read before I sleep and that doesn't disturb others. That is the only thing. Otherwise I am so happy. I have experience in different cities with shared room and decided it will be the last option. But I love YHA Bristol. Now I know where to stay when I come to Bristal. Keep doing the good work.

Liked: Lovely and clean and modern looking - it's brilliant. 24 hour reception which is dead comforting and a wicked living room space, good facilites on offer - also location is ideal as I work a lot in the harbourside area. It's near everything. Gorgeous café and what not. I love it!

Disliked: It would be nice if they had free wi-fi - although internet pricing not too unreasonable. Other than that it's champion.

Liked: For absurdly low price, they gave full breakfast in a buffet. moreover, the place couldn't be better - I've walked through much of Bristol, yet ended up wandering around the hostel, as it was the most beautiful place I've seen in Bristol, with river dock and gulls, etc.

Disliked: Oh, think for yourself: [ . . . . . . . . . ]. I liked everything.
