Located n The Heart Of The City…
The Igloo Hostel, Annexe & Pods are perfectly situated for your visit to the compact and vibrant city of Nottingham. Our reception is now located on the northern side of Nottingham's compact city centre at 100 Mansfield Road (NG1 3HD). We are in the same building as Hot Knife Media.
If you've stayed with us before, you are might think that '100' is a typo, because we totally are at 110 Mansfield Road. Well, we promise that was not a typo. As of August 5th 2014, 100 Mansfield Road is the new home of our reception. So even if some places on-line or in-print still say '110 Mansfield Road' for our address, please note that it definitely now 100 Mansfield Road. Definitely.
FROM TRAIN / BUS STATION
Depending on what time you arrive in Nottingham, your best option of getting to us (i.e. the cheapest and easiest) will be to catch the Centre Link bus (£1.20) from Broadmarsh Bus Station (which is where your coach will arrive and also only a 2 minute walk from the train station). This bus runs every 10 minutes from 7am - 7 pm, Mon - Sat (sorry… it doesn't run on Sundays) and will take you to Victoria Bus Station. Which is then only a 2 minute walk to the hostel.
From either station, walk to the city tourism centre off Market Square (check the maps on the station walls). Turn right out of the doors of the tourism centre, take the first left (Clumber Street) and walk straight ahead for 10-12 minutes, past the Victoria Shopping Centre and halfway up the hill on the right-hand side) (here's the google maps from the tourism centre). Keep an eye out for the sign below.

A taxi will cost £3.50 - £5.00 from the stations and market square. The driver will take a circular route because much of the city centre is pedestrianised. If the driver does not know the Igloo ask to be dropped at the Golden Fleece. The hostel is just across the street. You can always flag down a black cab, but if you're looking to save a quid or two, we recommend giving Trent Cars a call at 0115 950 5050.
