The Hilton Chambers, in the fashionable Northern Quarter of Manchester City, is a hostel that tricks you into thinking it’s a hotel. It may have all the atmosphere and camaraderie that comes with a hostel, as well as a fully equipped, modern kitchen. However, its mainly private en suite rooms, which house anything from two up to ten guests, are stylishly decorated and offer unlimited WI-FI. Free luggage storage and a barbeque terrace outside are also available, ensuring that this hostel cum hotel has set the bar as high as it can go when it comes to standards of service for budget accommodation.
Hatters Hostel is right in the centre of Manchester, meaning it is at the heart of all the action and where it‘s at.

Here, two things are guaranteed above all others – fun and great service with a smile. Together, these have ensured that The Hatters is one of the most popular hostels in the city. Its staff take pride in being fountains of knowledge about the best places to eat, the best places to hang out and events that are going on during the few days or so of your stay.
