Ashton House dates back to 1908 and was originally built as a women's hostel and then a hotel to serve Manchester Victoria Railway Station. Now a Grade 2 listed Victorian property.

We have a range of different rooms from newly refurbished Double's to private rooms that sleep 4 / 6 / 8 and dorms that sleep 6 / 24 and 28. Our 28 bed is unique - 12 beds in this room are behind wall partitions in 2's so gives the feel of being in a private setting even though your in a dorm.

We have vending machines for snacks, burgers, microwave meals, tea and coffee.. We have a small lounge with basic kitchen facilities - kettle, toaster, microwave, fridge & freezer.

This budget hotel and hostel is situated less than 5 minutes walk to the Phones For You Arena and Victoria Station,
