I've stayed here more times than i care to remember when I was living away from Bristol and was coming down to visit or passing through and always enjoyed my stay. The hostel is a bit haphazard but has more recently been renovated with a shiny new communal kitchen and improved showers. The rooms are each decorated with different artwork...

Everything about this hostel is fab - from the staff to the atmosphere, you can't go wrong. Super cool rooms as well! The bar does pretty good food with a relaxing atmosphere, it's definitely a place to party on the weekend too!

Greeted by an absolute gem of a receptionist – black curly hair ( the style reminded me of that Weeknd dude whos now dating Selena Gomez!) smiley and...

went here on a Saturday evening with a few friends. sat outside in the huge outdoor seating area. Everyone there was very friendly and most looking to chat and meet new people. I wish I had not eaten prior to coming as the smell of the food cooking kept coming over to where we were sat and it smelt AMAZING!...

It's a nice place for youngs, there is a huge garden where have breakfast or drink beers at night, rooms and bathrooms are clean, friendly and nice staff. As every backpacker hostel is not so quiet. There is a cool pub with music almoust every night.

If you're up in Bristol for a weekend with friends and are looking for a bit of a party, this is perfect. Really friendly, helpful staff. Comfy beds and clean rooms. I booked all 8 beds in a dorm as was up with 8 friends, and it was perfect! There's a bar downstairs which is open late, too which is...

Hi Andrea, Naturally our team are very disappointed to hear that you did not feel your stay was to the standard of your expectations. Whilst we are unable to speak on behalf of the team who you conversed with on this occasion, as any maintenance would not be directly part of the Full Moon Backpackers team. In hindsight it would...

This was basically everything I would expect for the price. Lovely, clean, very basic. I love the paintings on the walls and the staff were all very friendly. If you are used to Hostels, you will be very happy here :)

Difficult to find because have different name on the door. You do check in on the small part of the bar, then you need to go out to the street to enter in the hostel. Many of the lockers in the room are broken,

Thanks for your feedback. Our hostel is located above our bar & the entrance is in our courtyard but once in the reception the rooms are all upstairs. The lockers in the rooms was an idea that unfortunately hasn't worked out but we are constantly trying to improve our storage systems. Hopefully if you return we will have a smart...
