My friend and I had an ok stay. Its not the most flash hotel/hostel, but its good enough for a few nights and is in a great location! We were entertained during the night by a violinist who mostly played amazing grace. It was very entertaining. I hope he is here to brighten your night when you visit the exford!!

The hostel is really minimal it has a bar downstair which make a lot of noise at the weekand and it is near a noisy street you can hear everything but it is in a good location and it is probably the cipper hostel in town. I sujjest if you dont require lux and need a place to stay for 2\3 days

I've only got one issue with this place: bathrooms. Understandably hostel bathrooms are a niggle but there was a broken toilet on my floor that wasn't tended to during my two-day stay.

Aside from that, the staff are helpful, honest and actually smile when helping you. The communal area layout in the basement has a good flow and you can't fault the location at all.

Nice work, folks.

Stayed here for a week, and really enjoyed it! Prefect location, plenty of shops around. Could walk to the mcg aswell. The kitchen was big and clean, and a really nice tv room.. With plenty of films!! The bathrooms weren't the nicest but they were good enough. Had free breakfast each morning which was perfect.. Cereal, toast.. Tea coffee and juice! Staff are very friendly! So yes overall was a very nice place to stay. Would recommend x

We stayed at the Exford Hotel for one night and the rooms are fine, big and pretty clean BUT the bathrooms were lets just say it.. disgusting. The showers were gross I couldn't go in them without flip flops, the shower curtains were an old, yellowing and mouldy and there was hair everywhere (and not just head hair...) I know that this can't be helped when people shower but it was literally everywhere and it looked like the bathrooms either hadn't been cleaned in a very long time or in need of some serious updating. The toilet was also broken and leaking so you kept treading in toilet water and the doors didn't lock properly. There is a free breakfast, which is a good bonus if you are trying to save a bit of money. In general though for a double room, which supplied no towels or TV for the price we were paying it was a bit of a rip off. Great location though, right in the heart of the city!
