    Hi, I will be moving to Manchester from Glasgow very soon because I will be playing in a band here that get paid gigs regularly. I feel that staying in a Hostel will be the best option for me till I get a flat here for myself,do you offer a “weekly rate” or anything?

    Stayed at Hatters in April, the staff were really nice, they knew good places to shop, eat and go out and were happy to tell us :) staying at hatters in liverpool next and i hope its the same.

    Hi! I’m looking to book a room for a night because I’m going to a gig in april, but before I book I was just wondering if there were any night buses in manchester that ran between oxford road and your place, or if there are any reliable taxi services you could reccomend?
    I’d look for thr buses myself but the timetables just confuse me.

    • Luke Hatters Luke Hatters

      Hey there!!

      There are tons of night buses that run along Oxford road, to and from Piccadilly Gardens, which is just around the corner from us!!
      Hope to see you soon!!

  5. Lily

    Is it a problem if I can’t arrive exactly at the hour I noticed when I made the booking?

    • Luke Hatters Luke Hatters


      Not at all!! Our reception is open 24 hours, so you can arrive at whenever you wish!!

      Hope to see you soon, and safe journey!!

    I’ll be here on the 27th of Jan & was wondering about the easiest way (& safest way) to get to the 02 apollo from the hostel for a gig, as I will be on my own…

    • Luke Hatters Luke Hatters


      You can easily and safely get to the O2 Apollo from our hostel on the bus!! It’s takes about 5mins!!

    I have a question before making a reservation.
    We’re going to stay 1night on Feb 10th night. Do you guys can store our luggage whilst we’re out for watching EPL game on 11th Feb? probably will take about 5 hours. If that’s possible, we’d like to stay at yours.
    Please send me back. Thank you.

    • Luke Hatters Luke Hatters

      Hey there!!

      Of course!! We have a secure luggage room, where you can leave your bags for free until you leave the city!!
      Hope to see you soon!!

  10. Sam

    Awesome place! Really close to a lot of good night life venues and placed right in the Northern Quarter. Friendly staff who are very helpful and easy-going. Particularly our new friend Kirsty who works behind the desk :)
    Only thing that wasn’t so good was the heat of the rooms. Often woke up dehydrated but that was easily solved by a bottle of water.
    Well worth staying in!!

  11. Edward Anderson

    Hi lady and gent,
    Made a booking for 22nd June 2012 in Manchester so I can go and see Bruce. However, as I don’t drive and have no intention of leaving the country in the near future is there another form of I.D that is suitable. I have a citizen card and could also bring a payslip or scan my birth certificate.
    Any chance this would be acceptable?
    With thanks,
    Edward. Anderson

    • Roxy Hatters Roxy Hatters

      Hi. As long as the citizen card has a photo then it’ll be fine. We do require some sort of photo ID to conform to legal regulations.

      Regards Hatters.

  12. Ben

    would I be able to make a late check-in so that I could make a stay after a music event?

    • Roxy Hatters Roxy Hatters

      Hi. We have 24 hour reception, so don’t panic if you arrive a little late!

      Regards Hatters.

  13. Donghyun Seo

      Hi. Of course we can receive mail for you. We’ll keep it aside for you until you arrive.

      Regards Hatters.

  14. Darren

    Hi there I am moving to Manchester in late March/early April and I am just wondering if it is possible to book a room for the night and pay the nightly rate?

  15. Laurie

    Hi there !

    Can’t believe I didn’t leave a comment !!!

    I stayed a few nights at your hostel in March with my 15 years old nephew.

    We had a very nice time with you. Everyone was helpful and kind, and Manchester … wow … what a nice place !

    The hostel is situated near the centre so it was just perfect !

    My nephew loved to sleep in a dormitory, even though he always sleeps in 5 stars hotels when travelling with his parents !!! That was a very interesting experience for him !

    I think that if we come back to Manchester … we will stay at your hostel again, that’s for sure !

    Thanks again for your day to day assistance, your kindness and your smile !

    Cheers !

    Btw, if I’m gonna be around MMU during my trip.. which hostel of these two you got.. is closer? Thank you.

    • Emmeline Hatters Emmeline Hatters

      Hi Isa,

      Unfortunately we do not accept anyone under the age of 16 in our hostel, sorry that we cannot accommodate you on this occasion. Also we do not have parking, as we are right in the city center there are many NCP, open air and road parking.
      If you would like to make a reservation in the future with just over 16s, you can do so either by emailing, phoning or through the website.

      Many thanks,
      The Hatters Team

    • Luke Hatters Luke Hatters

      Hi Michelle!

      Yes we offer 4,6,8,10 and 18 Bed Mixed dorms. If you require the dorm to be private then yes, you would have to pay for the extra bed between yourselves. If you don’t mind sharing with another/others then you just have to pay for the beds that you would use. You can check in any time after 2pm and check out is by 11am.

Could you kindly let me know if you do have availability for the given dates, please?

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Hiya, just wondering if you have parking? thank you x

    • Luke Hatters Luke Hatters

      We do not have any allocated parking spaces, but you can park on the street. It is free after 6pm til 8am and all day on Sundays and Bank Holidays. Alternatively, we can show you couple of unsecure, cheap (£2 for 24h) or slightly more expensive, secure NCP’s.

    • Luke Hatters Luke Hatters

      Hey there, unfortunately we don’t but there are a few options. On Port Street, which is directly behind our Newton street hostel, is a car park which has very good city centre rates. Otherwise there is a car park on Ducie Street which is about £8.00 overnight. Then there’s the NCP car parks which are all over the place if a little pricey!
