I was very happy to stay at YHA Manchester, booking and check in was easy, and the room clean and well furnished. The bar was good and in the morning breakfast was excellent. We checked out easily and found the hostel was well placed.

I booked 4 nights so I could attend a training course without having any extra hassle. My experience of a Youth Hostel was 35 years out of date! This one has books and games, a bar and arm chairs! Sharing a double bunk room is always an interesting experience - you learn things about real people! When I accidently locked...

A modern, well designed YHA with lovely views of the canal waterways, great cooked breakfast, soup and cake. Close to The Hilton with superb views at the bar on the roof and the Science and Industry Museum. Only thing that lets this down was a member of staff speaking about customers negatively behind their back in the kitchen which was...

Thank you for your review, we're pleased overall you enjoyed your stay. We're disappointed to hear our staff were overheard in the kitchen and we agree this is unprofessional and it's certainly not how we would expect our staff to behave. I have shared your comments with the team to ensure this doesn't happen again.

Rooms were clean, facilities were good, front of house looked great! But "en suite" bathrooms were prefabricated cubicles and it was impossible to shower without wetting the entire bathroom floor. I also had all my (labeled) food stolen out of the kitchen during my last night. I understand that this is not the staff's fault but when I reported it...

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, we're sorry to hear your food went missing from the self catering kitchen and are as disappointed as you are that guests have not been able to respect other guests property, please rest assured that this is the exception rather than the norm.

What a surprising find! We needed a cheap and amenable bed for the night; after we were celebrating a 50th with friends living quite a distance away. This YHA was affordable, trendy, clean and had everything we needed. Shared room for 4; with bunks and small wet rom style ensure. Perfect! Breakfast was delicious. Awesome place to remember for next...

I stayed here with a friend on Saturday night as we were attending a concert at the Albert Hall. The hostel itself was easy to find, a 5-10 minute walk from Deansgate-Castlefield metro link. The main entrance was bright, modern and the reception/bar staff were helpful and polite. We shared with others in a 4 bedroom dorm, my bed was...

My wife and I stayed in this hostel for 3 nights with our two sons, 5 and 9. It was a really good experience. The room was just the right size with good facilities. The breakfasts and other meals we had here were good. We also used the self catering kitchen a couple of times which suited our needs perfectly....

I would definitely recommend this hostel. Me and my friends stayed here only for one night but we have nothing but good words to say. Rooms and bathroom were clean and comfortable, and the staff was helpful!
