  • I stayed here a long time ago and it's still a great hostel! On this trip, I attended a concert the University of Manchester. I didn't have dinner for the mere opportunity to try out the homemade pizza available up til 4 AM. It was worth it!

  • While not being totally central this hostel was one I would really recommend (4 female). Showers and a toilet were separate but in the room and clean. The beds were really sturdy, matresses comfy and it was quiet in the night. Lockers were installed in the room and really big, I coild fit my whole backpack (35 liters) into it. Ifoind the hostel to be clean and the staff was nice and helpful. Sadly no breakfast or free WIFI, but I just took a break from the Internet.
