Liked: Location

Disliked: Toilets were filthy - no locks, broken toilet roll dispensers. Rooms were filthy - broken/missing blinds on the windows which meant you had to wake up to people walking and looking in. Staff were extremely rude - I told them that the lights weren't working and the toilet lock was broken and she responded with "well you should have read reviews before you stayed". Different member of staff refused to give me my deposit back in the morning because they spelt my name wrong and I "pronounced it wrong" to them. After spelling my name to them, I managed to get my deposit back. There were missing floor tiles that made it unsafe to walk at night. Showers were disgusting. Just an overall pathetic attempt at a hostel.

Liked: Staff were friendly and the mixed dorm was secure and clean.

Disliked: The only bad thing was the toilet facilities. None of the cubicles had locks on the doors and the toilet entrance door didn't have a handle and it was very stiff.

Liked: I liked the location, how reasonable the prices are for bank holiday especially if your staying for one night it is ideal. Beds where really comfy, really clean room and clean toilets, it has been a better stay at this hostel then some of the expensive hotels I have stayed in, in Manchester previously. People seemed friendly enough, didn't stay there too long to see what their other facilities were like.

Disliked: It took a while for someone to answer the door when i first got there and or got back to the hotel on a night time.
