Bristol prison was found to be full of dirty cells and cockroaches in a surprise inspection.
A report out today (Tuesday) by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Prisons says its inspectors also found what it called "delinquent" staff using derogatory and abusive language.
They even witnessed one prisoner being "punished" by being refused full meals.
The report did find that the jail was doing well at resettling offenders.
The National Offender Management Service says work is already taking place to address the concerns.
