This black and white building which was originally a pub with rooms is well located not far from the station and this historical city centre. Friendly young couple have been running it for 12months , my first impression it is like staying in someones house. My double ensuite was small but clean and comfortable. The reception area , and the...

We booked in last minute for a 1 night stay in a private room after finding Chester Backpackers online. Upon arrival we were greeted by Chris who was very friendly and informative. The room was spotless with a very comfy bed and we both had a very good night's sleep. The town center was very close to walk to but...

I spent 4 nights at Chester Backpackers in a single ensuite room. The room and bathroom were a little dated and quiet small but it was immaculately clean. There were some really nice touches like a box of tissues on the chest of draws, coat hanger and a couple of water glasses in the room. The towel, bathmat and hand...

I stayed here for 2 weeks in July and will always plan to stay here when I am in Chester! Chris and Mel are great people, friendly and helpful, even carried my luggage up and down the stairs!! I had a double (bed) room with ensuite, which was perfect and very clean. Big window looking onto the street and light...

Didn't actually stay here but we decided we were gonna spend a day in Chester on the way home from holidaying in Wales and read somewhere online that this place offered a place to leave luggage for the day via prior arrangement so duly rang them and they were more than helpful and offered this service at a cost of...

I only stayed 1 night en route to Liverpool, and was slightly worried about some of the reviews, but I needn't have been, because it was as good as it gets for a budget hostel in the centre of lovely Chester. I can't speak for the dorms as I was in a private en suite double (upgraded from a single...

I want to start by saying that both the girl and guy working here were lovely. They were really friendly, understanding and relaxed. Having said that, this place is budget accommodation at its most unabashed. The beds are decent and the bedding clean. However the bunk I was sleeping on was badly damaged, part of it was only attached by...

The location of the hostel is a very admirable feature of this hostel, my experience of a 3 night stay in the Chester Backpackers hostel was very positive, the showers were hot, the beds were comfortable, there was free fast connected WiFi available throughout the hostel and the staff were very friendly and although this hostel is a little outdated...

The only good/positive comment I can make about the Backpackers Hostel is that the young guy on reception is first class - but totally wasted working at this location! He was polite, friendly and full of local knowledge - nothing was a problem. The actual hostel itself however is shabby and rundown - it's seen better days. The smell of...
