Shame about bathroom
This hostel has good common areas. However the bathroom in my 4 person dorm is too small. A shower wet whole area . Toilet squeezed in with a tiny sink. Everything got wet and nowhere to put anything.

10/10 Exceptional

My stay at YHA Manchester was very straightforward. It's clean. It's comfortable. A very homey place in a relativley unsafe-feeling city. I did have a few problems though. The property restricts Wifi usage to the first floor lobby, and doesn't allow for whats app calls. Quite annoying if you want to stay in contact with friends and family. Additionally, there was no floor fan or cieling fan in my room. It was very hot, and in each room ventilation comes only from the window. I was on the top bunk meaning I got trapped with all the heat, and it was very uncomfortable and I woke up each morning almost completely drenched in sweat.
