Just a shot trip!
I just needed a place to stay as I had an early flight out of Manchester airport the next day. Check-in was easy... everyone was friendly. Was within walking distance to the centre of town. Free parking was a bonus!

Not suitable for business travellers
The website says free wifi but it's not available in the rooms. The bathroom stank of sweat, it was too hard to even use it. For the price, there was not even a water glass in the room.

It was good value, however I did not sleep well due to a lot of noise in the room. Part of it was just the luck of who your roommates are, but the bunk bed was very noisy and didn’t help.

Great YHA hostel
Great hostel in a perfect location in central Manchester. I'm impressed with YHA hostel standards in the UK, including the Manchester YHA. Rooms are comfortable, USB plugs, reading light and small shelf for every bunk. Facility is clean, security good, and nice vibe in the lobby pub.

Better contingency plan required for unhappy costu
I stayed at yha manchester for one night; as always, when it comes to hostels, yha always delivers and is a straight forward choice. The only down side is that my friend who was also staying at the yha, in another room, had a hard time with this other roomate, who was behaving very poorly ie smocking in the room, and being intimating to my friend, so he checked out at 2am, and ended up sleeping in the car, as the yha did not have any spare rooms. I don't think that this is good enough, and its not a good way to deal with an issue, as thankfully he had a car to sleep in, but if that hadn't been the case, he would've had to sleep on the street or otherwise. I'm not happy with Yha's response to his difficult situation, absolutely I think that yha should always have one spare bed, in case an emergency happens, and not be greedy.
