I can say it is the second worst hostel I've stayed in. The neighborhood is a bit strange. Reception is not 24 hours. Cleanness is not something they care about. If you are allergic, do not book a bed. The buildings smell dusty and the second building smells cigarette too, even if it is not allowed to smoke there. When...

This place is fantastic no mater if your alone or with friends, the atmosphere is great from other travellers and the staff and it's so relaxing there. Price is cheap and with free Wi-Fi you can't go wrong and it's only a few minutes walk from the city train station

Had a great time. The staff was awesome and place was well kept. Will definitely stay again and highly recommend it. It is walking distance from new Street Station and the bull ring. Great location. Plus free breakfast and towels if needed.

I've been to hostels before, mostly in London, and I've never seen an hostel like this! It's very clean, amazing position near the city center and they give you to possibility to keep your food and cook in the hostel! I'm gonna give it 4 out of 5 just because I had a problem with the locks in the showers...

Nice place is you want to visit and explore Birmingham for a couple of days. Cheap. They have good breakfasts. Stayed a couple of times, met a lot of nice people. Would recommend mainly to sound people looking to broaden their horizons.

The hostel is excellently located near the city centre. It takes about 5/10mins to walk to the bullring. The hostel says on street parking, but be aware that they are some dodgy back streets, which i didnt feel safe leaving the car parked in for the one night we stayed. Remains of broken cars window covered the roads and pavements,...

I was here with one of my friend in a double room. It was more excellent then we expected. The toilets and bathrooms were shared with other rooms but absolutely clean. The kitchen was quite dirty because some people threw their food in the sink. However, I was totally satisfied with the service with friendly staff and useful facilities.

The facilities are good and clean, that's a big plus, though none of the showers I tried had warm water. I stayed at one of the 8-bed rooms with a shower in the room. The beds were OK, nothing special but definitely not the worst I've slept on in the UK. The rest of the hostel is pretty and the...
