It is misleading to call this a backpackers hostel as it is almost entirely a hostel for Spanish workers and students. It is filthy, the kitchen often crowded, bedbugs are an ongoing problem which the management will not deal with. 24 hour access but staff off duty at 11 so many strangers allowed access. Theft is a problem, as is noisy drunks and drugs. Long termers wander round in their pyjamas, sleep on sofas overnight. Police often turn up searching for people late at night. Wifi free but hard to access, very slow. . Staff behave as if it is their home. Helping visitors seems like an effort to them. Better to go elsewhere, or, given the alternatives, give Bristol a miss altogether. There are plenty of other cities to visit.
