My friend booked the accommodation - I would have overlooked this place because I haven't had any previous experience with hostels. From the time we arrived the the staff were very helpful - they genuinely want to make sure that their guests make the most of their time in Nottingham. The rooms were clean, as were the shared facilities. The...

I wasn't expecting luxury but was pleasantly surprised at how convenient it was. Stayed only one night but had a good comfortable bed to sleep in, hot shower in the morning and a nice kitchen area to make some tea and heat something to eat. Visiting Notts again in the same circumstances and I would stay here again.

I stayed with a group of friends in one of the dorms separate from the main building. The room was clean, comfortable and very well located. The beds were a little on the small side, but that wouldn't be a problem for anyone below 6 ft. Our host was very friendly.
