Located in New York Road, the hostel offers beds for up to sixty guests spread across twelve remarkable rooms, a blend of private en-suite bedrooms and dorms.

The extraordinary rooms explore big ideas; one room is themed around the region's radical protest culture, another bedroom is inspired by a collection of snowglobes from around the world and one amazing room explores mythical travellers, sea creatures and folklore.

Each room has been individually designed by exciting commissioned artists, including a room with a sensory safe space that has been designed to be accessible for people with disabilities.
