I spent 4 nights at Chester Backpackers in a single ensuite room. The room and bathroom were a little dated and quiet small but it was immaculately clean. There were some really nice touches like a box of tissues on the chest of draws, coat hanger and a couple of water glasses in the room. The towel, bathmat and hand...

I stayed here for 2 weeks in July and will always plan to stay here when I am in Chester! Chris and Mel are great people, friendly and helpful, even carried my luggage up and down the stairs!! I had a double (bed) room with ensuite, which was perfect and very clean. Big window looking onto the street and light...

Didn't actually stay here but we decided we were gonna spend a day in Chester on the way home from holidaying in Wales and read somewhere online that this place offered a place to leave luggage for the day via prior arrangement so duly rang them and they were more than helpful and offered this service at a cost of...

I only stayed 1 night en route to Liverpool, and was slightly worried about some of the reviews, but I needn't have been, because it was as good as it gets for a budget hostel in the centre of lovely Chester. I can't speak for the dorms as I was in a private en suite double (upgraded from a single...

I want to start by saying that both the girl and guy working here were lovely. They were really friendly, understanding and relaxed. Having said that, this place is budget accommodation at its most unabashed. The beds are decent and the bedding clean. However the bunk I was sleeping on was badly damaged, part of it was only attached by...

The location of the hostel is a very admirable feature of this hostel, my experience of a 3 night stay in the Chester Backpackers hostel was very positive, the showers were hot, the beds were comfortable, there was free fast connected WiFi available throughout the hostel and the staff were very friendly and although this hostel is a little outdated...

The only good/positive comment I can make about the Backpackers Hostel is that the young guy on reception is first class - but totally wasted working at this location! He was polite, friendly and full of local knowledge - nothing was a problem. The actual hostel itself however is shabby and rundown - it's seen better days. The smell of...

Hello, Many thanks for your feedback, particularity for your nice comments about me. I have just taken over the running of the hostel and I have a full schedule of repairs which will be undertaken quite soon. The property is regularly cleaned throughout but I also plan to revamp the hostel over the coming weeks and months - new floors,...

It's a good value for what you pay. I prefer the Bunkroom because Bunkroom looks a lot cleaner and tidier than Backpackers. Only because Bunkroom was full, I had to resort to Backpackers. Also, when I was looking for places online, Lloyds of Chester Hotel didn't come up. Otherwise, for double the price which is still very reasonable, I would...

Visited Chester Backpackers as part of a stag party. Was very sceptical beforehand but was pleasantly surprised. We had a dorm for 20 people between 8 of us so loads of room and although the mattresses were a little on the thin side they seemed adequate enough after a stag night. Good value accommodation.
