We stayed in Oxford last Saturday night after going out for supper and the theatre. It was very convenient and comfortable. We heard the trains but it was not a problem. We sat in the reception area and bar and enjoyed a bottle of wine afterwards. The bed was comfortable and warm and the showers and loo were very clean....

Generally it was okay - but throughout the whole building, the inexplicable chemical product smell prevailed, which was very off putting. I strongly advise you either to change the cleaning product or to take any procedure to eradicate this bad smell.

We're happy that we were generally okay, but of course we aim to be much better than this so were disappointed to read that you didn't like the smells. We pick our cleaning products based on them working well, being as environmentally friendly as...

I don't normally stay in youth hostels this was a friends idea for a cheap weekend away for a reunion! The hostel is centrally located right next to the train station just minutes walk from shops, bars and restaurants. The are a selection of room types and due to being a large group we got to see a few. Some...

I had a single room with a shared bathroom for two nights when I was visiting Oxford. All in all everything was fine, the staff was very friendly and the atmosphere was quiet. In fact, many families were staying at the time, which was good for me, as I wasn't looking to party. The shared bathroom was alright but it...

Ideally located for study trips to Oxford and surroundings (train and bus station, city centre and colleges all within walking distance). YHA Oxford provides good food and a meeting room for class activities. Staff very friendly and helpful.

If you choose to stay in very reasonable price with clean and modern accomodation yes it is the place. In Oxford for backpacker YHA is the best. The room is very secure and inside the room they have own bath room and toilet instead of the toilet and bathroom outside. The Lobby itself big and comfortable and they have 24...

We use YHA's around the country on any off site activities minimum 3 per year. Good valve, great accommodation, students can get internet which keeps them happy and helpful staff. When you know what your going to get, why go anywhere else.

It's just a hostel for a night. The place is correct (near the railway station), at ten minutes to the center of the city. It was clean, tidy and with free wifi. The recepcionists were nice and helps us in our day in Oxford and how to travel to other cities.

Thank you for your review of the hostel - good to read that you found us clean and tidy, helpful and conveniently located.

I stayed in one of the 6-bed rooms for two nights. The room and bath were very clean and comfortable, the lounge was also very nice. The breakfast was very agreeable as well and the staff was very helpful. I really can't think of anything negative to say about it.
