No point during covid”

The check in time is 5pm due to covid which I didn't realise at the time of booking. The check out is also early at 10am so you really don't get time in the room. We needed to get ready to go out so it made us miss a booking elsewhere. Towels are extra as are lockers for baggage. You'd get a hotel for the same price. Beds are comfortable though

Cheap convenient hostel when traveling Manchester. Quite humid during summer and there’s no fan in place. I’m nit sure if thy provide. Feet smell strongly as you enter the room. The bed stinks with sweat from previous occupant. The air vent in the toilet sounds loudly. But If it’s value for money and convenience you’re looking for then this hostel is for you

Thanks for the review Alan. We do provide fans in the rooms when it gets too warm. You just need to ask at reception and we can arrange it for you. We also put fresh bedding on for every new guest, so I'll have to pass on your comments to the housekeeping manager to find out why this wasn't the case during your stay

I stayed this hotel alone for a night. The free metro shuttle bus is available from Manchester central train station or metro-link (tram). It takes around five minutes by walk from bus stop or metro-link station. It's near Museum of Science & Industry (MOSI). Accommodation itself is typical for hostel.
