This is a very lovely hotel, spacious and welcoming entrance. But unfortunately the menus looked the same from one evening to the next and at lunch, the quantities were not sufficient. The location is great as neither too far from the center no too close.

The staff is very welcoming. The reception is very original and the decoration is beautiful. The breakfast is good. Unfortunately the bathroom is not practical. The toilet didn't work. The bed is confortable. I recommend it for a school trip.

This hostel is very well placed to go anywhere you want. It is big, there is enough space to meet in the inn. Unfortunately I find the rooms are quite small and in the mine, the toilet did not work, so I had to go elsewhere. Otherwise this place is good!

This place was good and beautiful. She is located in a quiet and beautiful place. We were well received by the managers. The common area is very friendly. The only thing that bothered me was the bathroom: it was too small, the toilet didn't work and there was water throughout the bathroom when we showered.

This small hotel is very well organized. The breakfast is good and there is a lot of different types of food. The people who work there are very friendly too. On the other hand the bathroom is a little bit small and we can't drink the water there.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review, we're pleased to hear overall you enjoyed your stay. The bathrooms are a little on the small side, there are extra showers on the corridor though. It's not usually advisable to drink the water from the bathrooms but the tap water from the self catering kitchen is fine to drink. We...

You can blindly book the YHA if you're going to Manchester ! +++ It's really clean, quiet +++ You can have food and drinks til late at night +++ People are really welcoming +++ The tram station is just by the YHA +++ After a 10 minutes walk you're in the center of Manchester

The hostel is nestled on a street that if you are not cognizant, you will miss but that's the charm. It was cozy and the food/bar was excellent. Gre8t staff too! Easy to reach from Manchester Airport via train.

It's a lovely approach to this hostel with the modern exterior and canal setting, and the interior doesn't disappoint, it's relaxing with games to entertain. The room was pretty standard for a YHA but the shower room was basically a cupboard, so I was a little disappointed as we were staying with our two teenage boys. I had thought we'd...

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. As a result of your feedback we've ordered a new toaster and I've asked our housekeeping team to do an audit of the self catering kitchen and order anything that's missing. The hostel is purpose built (there wasn't a smaller one here before), the self catering kitchen is on the...

I stayed in a four bed room. I've been to a lot of hostels around the country and this was very much to my expectations. Clean, comfy, wonderful little touches like splashes of colour and beanbags, an all day breakfast which is nice for a fiver, all in all a very comfy place. The view of the water was amazing....
