One of the worst hostels I've ever been. People stealing eachothers beds an throwing the other peoples stuff of the bed. Way too many people in one room without any kind of ventilation (not even an open window, because other guest will close it). Not enough lockers available because they put 6 lockers in a 12 dorm room with a...

I think it is expensive for the quality of the Hostel...very few bathrooms and also these are small, don't expect comfort in the mattress or pillow....the room is noisy at night so it is difficult to get to sleep... definitely disappointed!! But, I need to say it's near to the center of the city and the bus/train station, The hostel...

I stayed for 2 nights after arriving the train station around 5pm from Salisbury. The hostel is only 4 minutes walk straight from the train station. The staff was nice and helpful with information. I stayed at the 12 beds mixed dorm with lockers. The Roman Bath and most of the attractions and restaurants are just around 5 minutes walk....

The Backpackers Hostel was just down the road from the train station on the way to the center attractions in Bath, and I had 2 suitcases--so I read one of your reviews from the past and found a link to this place. I stored my suitcases while I toured around the city. The staff was very courteous and gave me...

Cheapest place to stay in bath when I booked. I was expecting worse after reading awful reviews but it wasn't that bad. It was clean enough which I felt was most important. The bedrooms were cramped but still enough room to get around but when we woke up the room was really warm due to so many people. Waiting for...

I had low expectations, but it's even worse than I thought it would be! I had to share a trashed and stunk room with long term guests and even staff members.  They are aware of these issues. I booked in advance and only when I got there the receptionist warned me about the other guests in the room. The room is called...

very good location in the heart of Bath town centre, short walk to Bath Abbey and The Roman Baths, and also to train and bus station. room is spacious, clean enough, adequate bathrooms and toilets. Wifi was not too bad but it was hard to connect at night (peak time). good enough for a night or two.

My boyfriend and I are backpacking the UK and stayed at Bath Backpackers for 2 nights. Location was very close to the train station and all the amazing attractions (the Roman Bath, the meet up point for a Stonehenge tour etc.). The room (12 bed mixed dorm) itself was spacious and clean- it required a passcode to get in the...

The location is perfect. The rest not so much. Rooms were al right and at the time I was visiting the bath rooms and the showers were clean. The common room was small, cold and uninviting. It has everything a hostel should have, but nothing more.

This is by far the worst hostel I've ever stayed in. After coming in after a night out a South African woman started screaming at my friend and I. She raised her arm to hit myself around the head, luckily my friend grabbed her wrist before she got to me. My friend and I did absolutely nothing wrong apart from...
