“Good stay overall”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2012

I stayed there for three nights. People (staff) were friendly and hostels were nice and clean. They had this luggage room as well where you can store your bag etc. There are lockers if you want to use them but they are costly. I dont remember but I think it was 2 pound for a day or something like that. Beds are new and good. Nightlamps Location is perfect and the city of Bristol is very small as compared to US and Indian cities.

Cons: No internet facility. You need to buy cards and they are so costly that you can have at least a good lunch with that money in some restaurant (9 GB Pounds). Bathrooms have showers but you cant regulate the temperature. No towels provided. No locks provided though Almirah is available. You need to buy a pad-lock for which they charge you (3-5 Pounds).

Room Tip: Rooms on the back of the Hostel on the third floor had a good morning view and they are quieter too.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

As a solo traveller I can recommend YHA in Bristol. I have been there a few days before Christmas and it was surprisingly quiet. I really loved the cafe downstairs and a place where I could sit with my coffee and read some books. It was good to read something more about Bristol before going to do sightseeing. Staying in a room for four I have to admit that they were nice, big and clean. However I was quite disappointed with the cleanliness of bathrooms and showers - It wasn't tragic, but it wasn't a pleasant experience to take a shower in such a place. I would recommend to everyone looking a hostel in a good price - great value for money.

We booked a private ensuite for 4 and at first thought it was a good price. However, it soon transpired that this did not include towels or breakfast. The other issue was the noisiness of the road outside which didn't lead to great sleep. Watch out for the 3pm checkin time, we managed to get our room earlier as I had specified this on the booking, but I was lucky as a lot of other people had to wait. On the plus side, the staff were really helpful and pleasant.

We turned up and was told that we could get our room at 3pm, so we went around town and took in the sights. Returned at 3pm and settled in. It was raining more heavily now and so we took advantage of the lounge. It could have done with a little more furniture as there were lots of guests who wanted to duck the rainy streets but there wasn't much space. Luckily for us, our children went to play pool (£5 deposit and 50p a game). The room was OK - it wasn't too warm though and the radiator had been turned off completely and it took ages for the room to warm up once we had put the radiator on. The breakfast was nice and served quickly with plenty to eat. We're veggies but weren't offered any alternatives for the meat. It may have been there had we asked but the guy serving was spending more time round the back than serving, so he seemed really busy. Overall, this is quite expensive for what is meant to be a cheaper alternative.

Firstly as mentioned in previous reviews the lift is out of order and we had to climb 9 flights to get to our level with suitcases, that was just the start. The toilets/ shower were dirty. Unfriendly, sarcastic staff and for three people sharing on a weekday £120!!!!! UNBELIEVABLE. Would never stay here again. Far better and far cheaper places to stay we were desperate at short notice. Would NOT recommend!!
