Stayed at this hostel a couple of times now and its still the best so far. Very neat and close to the train station which happens to be next to the city center and bus station. There is a bar opposite which doubles as a top Chinese restaurant with every budget accommodated trust me. A walk to the city center...

Good facilities and spacious dorms. Shower was blocked, leading to an interesting fragrance. And I could only get wifi in the library. Would stay again though. Liked the individual charging ports and lights by each bunk.

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments about your stay in the hostel. It's great to read that you found the dorms spacious and our facilities good. I apologise if the shower was not draining as it should - I do hope you mentioned this at the time so that we could rectify it. We clean the...

The hostel is well situated, close to the raillway and bus stations and a 10 minute walk into the centre of Oxford. The rooms are basic, however, serve their purpose. A great value buffet breakfast, hot and cold. The reception area is pleasant with a small bar and serves snacks and various drinks. The staff were very pleasant. No parking,...

Vancouver, Canada
Reviewed 23 December 2016

We all heard about this fabled city, set amid the rolling hills nearby... to stir our curiosity and our hopes... This small town is fully pedestrianized, encouraging us to walk everywhere and view the old colleges, tea-shops and meadows. Many of the colleges have walled gardens and enclosed lawns for the 'Fellows' -- as exclusive domains. But you can still...

This hostel ticks all the boxes - close to Oxford station, clean, warm and the rooms are fairly spacious WITH ENSUITES! YAY! The kitchen is a nice size and there is a restaurant available so you can by dinner and breakfast for a reasonable price. Being right near the station does mean the trains are quite loud when they go...

I stayed for 2 nights at this great value youth hostel. The location is superb if you want to be central. It's right next to the train station (you can see it as you pull in), and within a few minutes walk of the city centre for shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. The welcome on arrival was good, although I...

This was a long time I didn’t get back to a hostel. At first, it looked quite ok, but the came the nightmare! 6 people on the room, yet 2 people snearing whereof one 10 times badder and louder than a f** pig. So I left the hostel at 3h30am back to London. When arriving down at the reception, I...

Sorry to read that you were unlucky with your room mates on this occasion and to see that you had such a poor night at our hostel. We do try our best to do everything we can to ensure that everyone has a good nights sleep at the hostel, but I'm afraid that we can't predict if your room mates...

Came here on a road trip of the South of England. Has all the facilities you would need for a good price. The hostel is also well situated, it's about a 20 min walk from the centre, there is a waitrose 10 mins down the road and an off licence a couple of mins away for any emergency milk buying!

Thank you very much for your recent review of the hostel. We're really happy to see that you found us to be a good place to stay and rated us four stars.

I felt so welcome as soon as I entered at YHA in Oxford.
