    everything about the place for the money you py

    25 min walk from manchester pic

  • Single

    Good location, good value for money

    There were no lights with something that was trying to be a bathroom. In general this is not hotel but hostel if you go there with such an expectation you wont be disappointed. No soap, no shampoo, no towel...

  • Single

    Clean more requently for the rubbish bin in toilet as it is fulled but nobody clean it.

    The staffs are very nice

  • Single

    Staff very friendly and helpful, Hostel modern very clean and warm with good atmosphere. Small bar area, large restaurant space, cooked breakfast good. Self cook kitchen very good, tv lounge. Card entry for all room and doors Excellent walks, museums, bars and cafes close, also short walk to Tesco and Sainsbury. Room excellent, clean and spacious, 2 bed I bunk, good view of location, on the canal/wharf Car parking good. Close to free bus into centre Member of staff responded quickly to our complaint of late night noise in hostel from other guests 2.15am- Dutch students. Hostel sold useful items E.g padlock for locker at reasonable price.

    Kitchen good but only one oven, but perhaps people dont cook much? Think notice about consideration for other hostel users after 11pm needs to be in other languages. Cold water taps in kitechen not labelled as drinking water, but used for tea + coffee so water biled.. Plugs on appliances would be useful to be labelled as 2 sockets for 3 plugs. Cooker in kitchen, not clear on how to use the grill, had to show Chinese and Singaporean guests how to use it

  • Single

    Cheap, convenient place to crash after a gig.

    Chap snoring in room. Always a risk with a shared dorm!

  • Couple

    Cheap and comfortable

    Putting people who check-in at different time in one room. The other two girls in my room checked-in at 11 something when I was already sleeping.

  • Single

    Good hostel, I got a four beds room with batrhroom. Good breakfast as well. 10/15 mins walking to the city centre

    Poor common spaces

  • Single

    Nice big Hostel. A good breakfeast buffet. The staff was very friendly. The rooms were clean. The have a small bar in the reception area.

    You have to pay a membership something. Don´t know really what it was.

  • Single

    I have stayed in 5 YHA hostels an it was the nicest by far. Decent amount of space in the rooms, good facilities

    There wast a plus by the mirror

  • Single

    But it is great to but the tour ticket to Old Trafford at a discounted price.

    Just one thing, Internet here has to be pay, I pound for 15 mins...

  • Older travelers

    It was centrally situated and close to public transport. The outdoor setting alongside the canal was particularly pleasant.We found hostel altogether to be a worthwhile experience. Thankyou!

  • Single

    The room is clean and space is big and clean. The breakfest I paied later is also nice. And it locates along a river and in a very quiet place.

    It was a little far away from the station and a little confused for me to find it.

  • Group of friends

    Great location - room was exactly what we needed.

    I understand that its a hostel but the bathroom was grubby and not as clean as it could have been. Noise from the trains was noticeable but hostel is situated RIGHT next to the track

  • Group of friends

    The hotel was very good value for money and catered the needs of our group. The hotel is in a great location for getting in and around the city centre.

    There was one member of staff who I do not feel was very helpful at all. He had no customer service skills and was not willing to help our group work out the cost of the hotel between us, he instead pushed a calculator our way for us to do it ourselves.

  • Family with children

    The Y H A manchester, was js what we needed for the time we were there, clean comfy reasonable, friendly and very helpful, would stay there again and recomend to anyone,

    We like Manchester for the big gigs at the mcr arena, we were lucky enough to see lady gaga.
