    It was a warm friendly atmosphere. Staff felt like friends rather than a business. Homely.

    Bathrooms clean but needs a little repairs.

    Everyone was extremely friendly and we felt really welcome. They're we're three of us girls sharing a room with three men. We were a bit nervous at first but they made us feel comfortable. Very close to the bullring so walking into the town was not a problem. Also no curfew, so if you want to go out, you won't have the risk of being locked out. The women at the counter was also extremely good with directing you to places. Overall had a good experience staying with Birmingham backpackers. Thank you.

    The showers downstairs ran really hot then freezing cold. So it was quite hard to shower.

    The atmosphere was great. Although I was much older than the others it didn't really matter because everyone was really friendly and didn't seem to care that I was older. A very homely atmosphere.

    Common area was warm and inviting, with comfortable couches.

    Capital letters and exclamation marks on posters around the hostel with the house rules make the place less friendly. Mattress was uncomfortable.

    Zohan. Zohan was the best part.

    The location is dumpy, but if you don't mind walking, you won't care.

    The very friendly welcome, and that breakfast is included. Also, the accommodation & communal area were in separate (though closely adjacent) buildings - very good, as one does not interfere with the other.

    The almost total lack of hot water! I managed to find 1 shower, just once, in my whole stay. None of the water heaters on any of the wash basins worked.

    the location is very close to the coach and bull ring area

    the staff is not efficient. the hostel management is very bad, which someone removed all my stuff from my bad, and at very late nite more than 6 people stayed in the same room..what the hell, I've no bed at all... it's very noisy as it close to the disco. the area is unsafe at nite.

    I liked the location - the hostel is close to the coach station! The staff was nice, the area next to reception (incl.tv) very relaxing. It was very nice, that they took care of my bag even after i checked out! So i didn´t have to carry it with me all day long

    I stayed in the female dormitory. One bed was smelly - luckily there was another bed still empty, so I took the not smelly/clean. The street was a bit dar late evening - better to be accompanied with somebody than alone

    The staff was attentive and friendly. I really liked everything about it. The breakfast was modest, but more than adequate; smart even. The bath and toilets were spotless and the rooms were quirky and colourful. Plenty to read, and it looked as if the wi-fi was working well for other people in the room (I wasn't using it though). I've already told other people about it and I think they're planning on staying there.

    Very nice hostel with many kinds of rooms. Personnel very friendly and atmosphere is casual, they have very comfy lobby, kitchen and many showers and bathrooms. They welcome you to spend time in lobby, chatting and watching tv, reading books or playing games. And are very kind to store your belongings even after check out, if you need.

    I loved the colourful decor and the friendly staff, the laid-back atmosphere and would choose it again over a hotel anyday. I liked that they had a towel for me to use, as I had forgotten to pack one and that there was space for you to cook for youself, if you wanted. It was all adequately cleaned and the breakfast was simple and plentiful.

    5 of us stayed and 4 beds were really comfortable. In the triple room that my adult children slept in, one mattress was dodgy, so my son slept uncomfortably.
