We stayed at the Bristol YHA for two nights in a private ensuite. The location is fantastic and close to all major attractions. The hostel itself is fabulous with a great café and common area, and sufficient laundry facilities. There are excellent restaurants and bars nearby. We would advise against staying in the private room with the disabled ensuite bathroom. The bathroom has additional handrails, a toilet with no seat and a large wet area. The double bed in the room almost seems like a king single bed rather than a double. We ended up having to use the top bunk bed as well because we both could not comfortably fit on the bottom bed – and we are both quite slim. There was only one cabinet with a lock on it because the other door had broken off and could not be found. When we arrived, the toilet seat was not attached to the toilet, but thankfully the staff were helpful and fixed it for us immediately. We had great expectations when we walked in the door and saw how fabulous the rest of the hostel facilities were, but we were a little disappointed by our room in particular. We would recommend this hostel but advise against staying in the disabled private ensuite unless you require the facilities.
