Liked: The room although it was not what we booked it was a ok room.

Disliked: There was no one to check us into the hotel, one of the guests let us in and said go into a room- security wise very unsafe. After trying to call the manager no reply. When a part time receptionist managed to contact the manager she was extremely rude in the phone to myself.

Liked: Big property on the top of a hill. All doors locked and the main door was locked after a certain time. Breakfast was provided and so were towels. Plenty of showers and toilets for the size of the building. After a disastrous first night, everything was made so much better, the new manager came in and asked all guests for feedback and acted on everything appropriately and efficiently, after a couple of days of this lady being present things were already so much better than you could tell the hostel had been. I believe this hostel will become a lot more appealing to everyone with her contribution of hard work and customer focus.

Disliked: Cupboards were full of old things people's food. A bigger fridge and freezer are needed for the amount of people that could be in the hostel, the fridge had no room for anything when we arrived and there were hardly any people there. As an idea I think breakfast products should be kept in a smaller fridge and cupboard dedicated to breakfast.There were hardly any plates bowls, decent cooking pots and pans and cutlery.We arrived to the wrong room, used sheets and a room that had not been cleaned. The staff who checked us in was very rude and obnoxious, didn't have any customer care or seem to care about his job. He was also unhygienic and hadn't carried out his duties of cleaning and looking after the hostel.

Liked: Comfortable, clean and quiet youth hostel. Sleeping was easy in the comfortable beds, and the other folks in the hostel were also pretty darn cool.

Disliked: The location was a bit far out of town. That said, it was easy to find, once I had Google maps, and the helpfulness of a few locals!

Liked: The cosy and safe feel. The kitchen was lovely; the beds were very comfortable.

Disliked: The location was a bit strange but taxis into the city were cheap so this was not a big deal.

Liked: Good-value basic accommodation. Unlimited coffee, tea, bread, margarine, jam and cereal included, with no fixed meal times - guests can help themselves at any time. Fittings, facilities and furniture were ageing but very clean. Kitchen equipment also v. clean. Quality soap-dispensers provided in bathrooms. Staff were reasonably efficient but unobtrusive.

Disliked: Security is poor: door-entry code numbers stay the same each day, making it theoretically possible for guests or others to keep returning even after they have left; and I was not asked for proof of identity on arrival. The suburban location is unsalubrious and a little inconvenient - a steep 30-to-40-minute trudge to the city centre - but buses and trams are available. The kitchen is a little small for a communal facility, but fine if only a few people are there at the same time. A few leaflets of local information were available, but these largely concerned the wider region rather than Sheffield city itself.
