Welcome to our hostel

The recently renovated hostel is well placed for all groups to get the most out of the city. It is located right next to the canal on Potato Wharf and is within easy reach of some of the best shopping, museums and theatres in northern England.

If you're in Manchester for a weekend break, the staff at the hostel will help your group book a taster session at the Chill Factore where you can learn to ski or snowboard indoors on real snow.

This great facility also offers lessons in mountain climbing.

Or there is Airkix indoor skydiving centre offers an experience like no other. Learn the basics of skydiving on the indoor wind tunnel and have a blast on your city break!

Of course Manchester has the renowned Trafford centre where designer boutiques rub shoulders with High Street fashion – great for groups of girls who know how to shop. And of course no visit to this city would be complete without a mention of the famous football teams which hail from here. Ask at reception about booking up an Old Trafford Tour – the home ground of Manchester United and see the hallowed pitch where some of the best in the world have played.

And for school groups there are a number of activities on offer which trace Manchester’s history and there is also the opportunity for students to get out on the water at the nearby Salford Watersports Centre.

Whatever your reason for staying in Manchester, our hostel here can make any group trip a success. So why not make an enquiry now?
