When we got to hotel at 8pm they had not organised our room and we had to stand around while they got the mattress up the stairs to our room. The staff were bickering and yelling at each other. Room was okay but cramped and we did have Wi-Fi connection. Breakfast all right. We were not offered a discount because... More

To summarise a terrifying visit: - Thrown out for arriving an hour late due to flight delay (I travelled from Spain) - Threatened with police for questioning - Invited back in because I could pay cash (no apology) - No wifi in room - Sink flooded with urine - Dirty sheets AND whilst sleeping I heard her do the same...

Just got home from a terrible stay here. Smell was horrendous, no staff spoke English. (probably the reason nobody answers the phone when I wanted to enquire about an extra room) Very cold welcome, was made to feel I was an inconvenience. The room barely fitted a single bed. No wifi working, tele didn't work! No tea making facilities. Stained... More

The hostel had a very filthy room (walls, mattress and blankets), and noisy staff. I stayed there for 2 nights and it became worse with the smell of curry and incense all over the place, I barely could sleep. The WIFI didn't work at all at the first floor. The breakfast was not bad. Full english, cereals and drinks.

Dropping my son off to uni I needed a place to stay overnight, now I know why it had vacancies. Booked through booking.com , to be fair I was pleased to have found a room in Southampton with 'free' parking. I arrived to be greeted with anawful smell, thankfully not my breakfast, which was lovely and plentyful. I asked where... More

My room was in the basement. There was an appalling lack of soundproofing. It was simply very noisy on the ground floor level. The manager took 10 minutes to greet me on arrival despite being called on two occasions by another member of staff. Wifi was included but there was poor quality reception. The doors to the rooms could have... More

Booked as it was close to where I was meeting friends, got to say, really clean and friendly service. Pretty much next door to the mayflower, will definitely use again. Didn't have time for breakfast, but looked good!
