We spent 1 month at Kipps and couldn't recommend it enough. The facilities were great (newly renovated kitchen, great rooms) and all the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Felt like a home rather than a hostel.

Hi Thanks for the nice comments and rating and biggest thanks for choosing to stay at Kipps when you were in Canterbury!!! We really enjoyed you staying with us, and will be strange not to see you around the hostel. We do enjoy guests that stay for more than 1 night, its nice to see familiar faces around the place....

Stayed here one night, was spotless, fresh bedding and very friendly staff! Brilliant facilities if you are travelling, good working shower with towels provided, lovely pub at the bottom of the hill, and only 10 minute walk to the town centre, for what I paid for a night it was more than worth it!
