The pros - the bed was very comfortable and had a curtain that you could draw over it, meaning no one was peeping in as they passed, which was a nice touch. The showers were clean and powerful, better than most hostels I've been in. The cons - Staff were a bit stand-offish and seemed to be more interested in...

I do not have a good thing to say about any of the members of staff that I encountered on my stay with 3 friends on New Years Eve 2016. Upon check-in, the receptionist spoke very direct, was unwelcoming and spent most of his time telling us how he would fine us £200 and throw us out if we were...

If you looking for good value for money this place offers a nice vibes atmosphere :) I recommend this place for single and multi travellers. Friendly, clean, with positive attitude :D I liked the decorations, enjoyed the free drinks and breakfast. Definitely would come back again - just probably to the pink bedding from the pic :P

We arrived by taxi to the hostel, firstly the taxi man didn't know where it was. When we arrived at 6pm, we wer taken aback by the dodginess of the area.. we were far from impressed on first sight of the street. Appeared dirty with rubbish everywhere and creepy. We waited in the reception until We wer given our 2...

I wanted low-cost accommodation for one night for a group and to be based in Digbeth (which is also really handy for city centre). This fitted the bill perfectly. We expected it to be basic and it was. We also expected it to be noisy, which it wasn't - other guests very considerate and the area itself quite quiet. We...

Loved my stay here. Good price with good location and close to the station. Good atmosphere especially the living room. Basic hostel, but rooms were clean. Staff were really friendly and accommodating.

Checked in quite late, hostel let's you check in up until midnight with 24/7 reception. The guys on reception were so friendly and helpful. I was in the second building, very good heating as it was cold there. Stayed in a female dorm but none of my room mates wanted to interact and were either sat with headphones in or...

We wanted something cheap for a night and close to the centre. This is the best place for it. The staff was really helpful and chatty, we had some time with them in the main room, having a cup of tea, and everyone seemed to get on well with them The people working seems like a family and they seem...

The hostel was clean and it had good beds comfort wise, although the room was really dark and seemed very run down. The location is a good location, although you are in the middle of an industrial estate so it feels quite dodgy. The women on the desk we're quite rude to us, one worded answers, etc. Another thing that...
