Reviewed 1 week ago NEW

went here on a Saturday evening with a few friends. sat outside in the huge outdoor seating area. Everyone there was very friendly and most looking to chat and meet new people. I wish I had not eaten prior to coming as the smell of the food cooking kept coming over to where we were sat and it smelt AMAZING!...

It's a nice place for youngs, there is a huge garden where have breakfast or drink beers at night, rooms and bathrooms are clean, friendly and nice staff. As every backpacker hostel is not so quiet. There is a cool pub with music almoust every night.

If you're up in Bristol for a weekend with friends and are looking for a bit of a party, this is perfect. Really friendly, helpful staff. Comfy beds and clean rooms. I booked all 8 beds in a dorm as was up with 8 friends, and it was perfect! There's a bar downstairs which is open late, too which is...

Hi Andrea, Naturally our team are very disappointed to hear that you did not feel your stay was to the standard of your expectations. Whilst we are unable to speak on behalf of the team who you conversed with on this occasion, as any maintenance would not be directly part of the Full Moon Backpackers team. In hindsight it would...

This was basically everything I would expect for the price. Lovely, clean, very basic. I love the paintings on the walls and the staff were all very friendly. If you are used to Hostels, you will be very happy here :)

Difficult to find because have different name on the door. You do check in on the small part of the bar, then you need to go out to the street to enter in the hostel. Many of the lockers in the room are broken,

Thanks for your feedback. Our hostel is located above our bar & the entrance is in our courtyard but once in the reception the rooms are all upstairs. The lockers in the rooms was an idea that unfortunately hasn't worked out but we are constantly trying to improve our storage systems. Hopefully if you return we will have a smart...

Stayed at the full moon one Saturday and won't be making this mistake twice. The hstel is dirty rooms look unclean, dirty plates in the kitchens food on work surfaces. Arrived to a party going on in my room and my bed was the bar. The noise from the bar outside is deafining the whole building vibrates. Arguably I did...

Our hostel is undoubtedly a party hostel at the weekends & our guests usually chose to stay because of our party atmosphere & central & artistic location. We are better suited to backpackers exploring what Bristol has to offer.

I was really surprised when I walked into our room, I wasn't expecting to see beautiful murals all over the walls. The room was spacious and clean and felt really homely. The staff were super friendly and even helped us carry our bags upstairs. The overall atmosphere was welcoming and I liked having a lively bar downstairs.

Hi Helyn, Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay! Very glad that you appreciate the artwork and that you feel the atmosphere of our hostel was more than satisfactory, particularly as this is something that our team put so much effort into ensuring this is the case. Would be brilliant to see you at the Full Moon Backpackers again!...

This is an amazing, unique hostel with each room decorated by a different artist. Our room decor featured cheerfully colored Ladybirds and Dragonflies (Room B). I was fortunate to see one of the artists, Helyn Gulley, complete her wall mural near the kitchen. The kitchen was clean and well-supplied with dishes and cookware. The room was well heated and quiet,...
