Liked: The hostel is easy to find and centrally located. There is no parking though, and not even really a place to full over and unload, so you'll need to think about this if you are driving here. There is a nice big kitchen and a chill out room, so depending if you are looking for lively socialising or book reading, you have somewhere to go.

Disliked: On a Friday and Saturday night the outside of the hostel was very noisey due to the location of the hostel in town and the bar on the bottom floor. I was able to sleep through it all (as I am a heavy sleeper) but other members of the group found it a bit harder. The hostel was a bit grubby. I wouldn't see it was dirty, but needed a lick of paint or a good deep clean on the carpets.

Liked: Central location, easy to find you way around from here by foot. Cool bar underneath with cheap drinks and friendly staff

Disliked: room and showers both had a smell of pee. Windows are very old and let a lot of the cold in. Beds aren't very comfortable

Liked: It honestly felt like home away from home. If I were to go to specifics, I'll start off by saying that the prices are really reasonable for what you get. They have a kitchen (other travelers often leave extra groceries behind so you should check it out before buying yours to save up on cash :D), warm showers in the toilet and a ping pong table. Plus, they are really festive and once you get to know the staff, they are pretty nice. During Christmas Eve, there was a huge party that was loads of fun and they even had a turkey and everything. It's also located in the centre of Bristol so walking around is easy. Overall, I will miss that place :D

Disliked: My room smelled a little stinky feet, but it's not too bad. The wifi is a little unstable at times.

Liked: It's in a really great location- right opposite the main shopping/entertainment areas of Bristol city centre! It's also a fairly easy walk up to Temple Meads station. I really liked the fact that it had a lot of unqiue artwork inside of it because it's clearly taken inspiration from the gorgeous city it is situated in. Discount on pizza was fantastic too and £51 for three nights in Bristol city centre? That's pretty amazing value.

Disliked: My only complaint is that it was cold in the hostel. However, I would attribute this to the cold weather during my stay and the fact that it is an older building.
