Train
From the train station walk straight ahead up City Road, turn left at the bottom of this road just after 'The Chester Hangman' pub onto Boughton Street and we are 150m on the left just past the video store.

Bus
The National Express bus service now arrives and leaves from Terminal 7 at the Chester Bus Exchange. On leaving the station, turn left up Princess Street. Turn Right at the top of the road onto Northgate Street. At the top of the road by St Peters Church turn Left onto Eastgate Street. Pass under the famous clock on top of the Roman wall and keep going straight on this road. Staying on the left hand pavement will take you through 2 pedestrian subways. This road changes from Eastgate Street to Foregate Street then after the second subway becomes Boughton. Exiting out of the 2nd Subway turn right up the steps and go around the corner passing the Fast food restaurants. We are 200 metres further up this road past the video shop.

Located Near

The hostel is located 5minutes from the Roman city wall, town and Amphitheatre. 2minutes walk from 'Best pub in Britain 2009' and from fantastic Indian, Japanese and Thai restaurants. Chester has the finest examples of Tudor architecture in Britain; is home to Britain's biggest zoo and is the most complete Roman walled city in Great Britain.
