Liked: Nothing.

Disliked: Most of the things! This hostel feels like a budget hotel with a comfortable, spacious bathroom! I wish the reception was a little more friendly, although this was not a hassle. A good hostel!

Liked: This Place has a great atmosphere. You always find somebody to chat with in the kitchen or living room. The Hostel is placed in the center of Nottingham so everything you need (stores, bars and clubs) is nearby.

Disliked: There is just something like a hotplate in the kitchen but a stove/oven would be nice so you can make yourself a pizza or something like that.

Liked: Close to the train station, big kitchen.

Disliked: Had loud roommates - but not Midtown's fault! No one seemed to be very social either, but again, not reflective of Midtown.

Liked: Location, welcoming and helpful staff and other guests are great; the lounge and upper bathroom are nice.

Disliked: (*this is a comment on 6 bed dorm) Poor condition of the property (bad smell in the room, bad condition of ceiling in the room). Too many beds in the room - considering the size of the room), dirt under the beds. The first night the kitchen was dirty, we couldn't even make ourselves a cup of tea (it got better the following day, though).

Liked: Friendly and welcoming staff, low cost and ideal location. It was also very quiet, despite being in the town centre. Beds were comfy and clean.

Disliked: Nothing, really. The 6-bed dorm room was a bit cramped and there's limited shower and toilet facilities, but we knew this in advance and it wasn't really an issue.

04 September 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Small and home-like property makes it easy to meat stuff and fellow travelers! It's by far not a "sleeping machine" like so many new houses, found around the world recently, but still includes that backpacker atmosphere loved by many. Atmosphere was relaxed and made me fell a home. The hostel is situated close to the city's main square and attractions and only 10 min walking (or 1 tramway stop) from the train station.

Disliked: To get a simple map of Nottingham would be helpful; availability of train timetables from Nottingham (i.e. to Lincoln, Liverpool, London, Norwich via King's Lynn, Peak District Region, Skegness or York) should be a great feature for all guests!

Liked: Location is excellent. The spare bed is a bed between the dorm and the hall but there was no problem in me moving in to the dorm.

Disliked: Spare bed could be described more so you know what you're getting. The first bed I put my stuff on had bogeys stuck to the fitted sheet so obviously had been changed since the last person slept there.

Liked: The manager was friendly and very welcoming, also up for a laugh! Hostel also had really good communal areas and a very well stocked kitchen and nice lounge area with tv and games that wasn't advertised but should be!

Disliked: Lack of bathrooms as there were only 2 loos and the bunk beds could do with being a bit sturdier!
