Liked: Asthon House is located near the shopping centre, near the bus station and also not far from Eithad Stadium. The staff members are extremely helpful and very polite. I am very satisfied with the service provided and I would totally recommend anyone to visit this hostel. It would be the ideal place to stay if you ould like to visit places in Manchester, it's in the perfect spot for that. Also if you have to attend an event at Etihad Stadium, I would recommend you stay at this hostel as it is the closest hostel to the stadium, it only takes 5 minutes to arrive there by car.

Disliked: The only thing I did not like about Asthon House was the fact that there was not a private bathroom available so we had to use a shared bathroom.

Liked: The staff were very friendly !

Disliked: I could not take a shower properly cos almost all the showers were broke, my room was beside the kitchen and the whole night some girls speaking and laughing laud and then a couple of guys joined them, it was awful! The check-in at 3 pm is too late and not necessary because the check-out its at 11am, they could open for check-in earlier!

Liked: The staff at the front desk were helpful.

Disliked: If a hostel's USP is that it has massage showers, you know it hasn't quite worked out what a hostel should be like... Zero character, which makes one less likely to forgive the fact that it was noisy (the 28 bed dorm surprisingly quiet, however there were doorways leading off it to the kitchen, which was the only social space I noticed, and the showers, which are quite loud if you use the radio...

Liked: Availability of secluded beds. Good value for money.

Disliked: Only criticism is that the door to the dorm does not automatically swing shut and is therefore constantly left open. This is clearly a security issue that needs fixing.

Liked: Only a one night stay, but everything you would expect from a good hostel. Clean, efficient, Nice hot showers (always a plus) and excellent location.

Disliked: The dorm I was in stretches back to the kitchen and is only separated by an emergency exit. Late comers to the kitchen obviously didn't realise this and it got a bit loud. Maybe a sign?

Liked: Notwithstanding the incorrect information about wheelchair accessibility, the hostel is a cheap, central place to stay.

Disliked: See above. My brother is in a wheelchair, and had to get out of the chair and haul himself up and down steps to enter the hostel and then get to the room. This is dirty and humiliating and completely unacceptable.

Liked: It was cheap for uk standards and safe. I stayed at a giant room of 24 beds and there is still plenty of privacy in different corners, divided by fake walls and curtains so you can easily go there with your girlfriend and not worry.

Disliked: Toilets were kinda old and unrenovated in a long while
