Manu's place hostel was a unforgettable experience. I stayed the entire lockdown there with my partner Francisca. We met wonderful people, specially some helpers and the managers Albert and Anano. Who always shown understanding and truly kindness. Finally we made some valuable friends.
The place was okay, if you ask to organise your agenda fairly with Manu.
Good location, easy to get there.

Our stay at the hostel during the Covid time was great, especially because we met amazing people. Anano and Albert were just great managers and we became very good friends since then. Moreover, we met kind and increible travelers too, from all over the world! The best thing was that we made really good friends that became part of our lives. Manu was always open to talk and share, always showing understanding if you asked him anything too. We spent a lot of unforgettable and entertaining moments together with the staff, I´ll always be grateful for that!!!

I had a really nice time at Manu's place. In the first week I already felt very comfortable with everything. Manu is a really nice guy, who is always open to talk about everything. He is the kind of host that is very hard to find, a really human guy. I could learn a lot from this experience, I improved my experience with housekeeping and could improve more my manual skills, especially regarding tools and fixing things.
I recommend this experience for everyone, besides, Birmingham it's a lovely city to spend some time!!!!!
Thanks, Manu! hope we can meet again!
