6-10-12 Excellent welcome to a well above average hostel. Our bags were taken to our room whilst we went out for the day.

Mel was very sociable and made us feel very welcome, even joining us in the Cabanna for a chat about what Chester had to offer.

10/10 would come again.

Stayed here for one night only as I went on a night out in Cheter. Lovely staff (Mel), she coped well with cooking a great breakfast for loads of hungover girls, and was willing to accommodate any requests, which made it feel special. The location is ideal as it's a stone's throw away from the train station and only 15mins walk into town. Very clean and plenty of room for what we needed.

Room Tip: Would have prefered an en-suite as the bathroom is downstairs by the communal areas, but this was no...

Very central location, close to the railway station. For the price you can't fault this place. Admittedly we had to go down one level to access the bathroom, but our price reflected this. The chill out area at the back is brilliant. Good kitchen facility. Even if you don't have a tight budget it's a good place to stay. Check with them if you need parking, we were on bicycles.

Room Tip: If no ensuite room is available check where the nearest bathroom to your room is.

a group of 7 of us visited Chester for the races the weekend just gone, and I can not speak highly enough of the bunkroom!!
the service was first class from phone call to book, arrival, information provided about how to get where, and a breakfast which was first class.
without a shadow of doubt we will be back, and i will recommend to others. The gentleman that we saw was first class, polite and again very helpful.
thanks

Located a stones throw from the station and plenty of Chester's bars and pubs. There are nice communal areas both inside and out, a pretty well equipped kitchen, bbq and even a little bar. The rooms are pretty standard but they do the job and the beds are comfy enough. The staff are a mixed bag. One female receptionist was a pathological liar and a bit on the icey side whereas the male receptionist dragged himself out of bed after a couple of hours sleep and made us a full fry. Overall a good place.

Thank you so much for your review, which is most important to us in order to help us improve our standards. However I am a little bit amazed by the comment that Mel, one of our receptionist, is a pathological liar. What a strange thing to say about some one checking you in and handing over your key.
Still, as we do take all reviews very seriously, you will be pleased to know that we have addressed the problem and Mel is now booked on a course for psychology, psychiatry and finally psychotherapy.
We hope this will resolve the problem.

Very nice hostel with a good service and friendly stuff. (wi-fi free). It's very clean and enjoyable. You only need 5 minutes to walk into the city centre and is therefor ideal for groups and tourists!

Fantastic place to stay for a group of young people - very clean and chris was very helpful from start to finish.

Breakfast was brilliant and the outside smoking area was great to sit and wait for the group to get ready.

Very close to pubs, food and shop

Will deffinatly be staying again!

Thanks to all chris for all his hardwork
