6/10 Good

Fine for a night close to the city. Nothing more.
Good city centre location 10mins walk to the main streets. Comfortable bed and heater available if needed. A simple self serve breakfast was included. Unfortunately, the female room I was in was located quite far from the bathrooms and you had to walk past the reception desk and up two flights of stairs. Not ideal in the middle of the night and may make some feel uncomfortable walking past staff on reception. Also, the gentleman on reception was very loud in the morning right outside the room which wasn’t very considerate. The hostel does the job for a one night stay if you want to be in the city on a budget.

Someone stole my Coke in can in the fridge
Receptionist told us that we can put our food in the fridge and we don’t have to worry because noone will take it, so I happily left my coke drink there. The next morning it was gone.

8/10 Very good

Great value for money
Leeds City Centre for this price - exceptional. Yes, it's not the Ritz, but if certainly met my expectations in terms of warm welcome, good atmosphere, etc. Yes, some work to be done (lockers don't work), but for somewhere safe and clean to rest my head for a night - couldn't fault it. Fellow guests were friendly, mainly medical students who were polite and courteous. I also loved the 24 hour availability of tea/coffee/toast and cereal, allowing me to work late with sustenance. Definitely will stay again.
