The room was clean, tidy, peaceful, good facilities for the price. Bathroom and Kitchen again clean, tidy everything you need and it was a great location for us. The staff where oh so lovely too. If I go again I would take a kettle for the room but that's for my morning coffee fix :-)

This is the first time I have ‘ever’ stayed in a hostel and I booked it about one hour before I needed to check-in for a spontaneous night out in Nottingham.

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...
