“Friendly, Central Hostel”
Reviewed 14 February 2012

My daughter and I spent one night in this hostel in early February and had a 14-bed dorm room to ourselves. The hostel is very much like an American university dormitory and all the facilities are modern. Lockers are available on the ground floor but not in the dormitories. The staff was very pleasant and we enjoyed our brief stay. For a hostel, the price is a bit steep but still a bargain compared to other accommodations in Bath. A decent continental breakfast is included. It is just a short walk from the major sights and the train station. I would definitely recommend it for a short visit.

Bath YMCA provides excellent value accommodation at the heart of the city. The staff were friendly and helpful. My room was clean and most importantly the communal facilities were spotless. I was very comfortable in my single room, with bed, desk, wardrobe, drawers, chairs and sink. Continental breakfast was included in the room rate and in the evenings there was a microwave available. I really enjoyed my stay here and will definitely be back. Keep up the good work Bath YMCA.

Room Tip: You can use the in house Gym too for a small fee. Hot water available 24/7 from the machine in the r...

Me and my boyfriend stayed here a couple of months back and it wasn't really up to standard.

When we arrived, everything was fine. The guy on the desk wasn't particularly charismatic, but he got the job done, gave us our keys and we were on our way.

Later that evening, we had a couple of friends who had arrived unexpectedly that evening and had nowhere to stay. We asked if they had a room and they abruptly turned them down without an ounce of sympathy. It's not their responsibility to house people who have nowhere to stay, but the man on the desk was rude and short with us. We offered for them to stay on our floor and have them pay the price we paid but they still turned them down.

Furthermore in the morning, they have a siren that goes off throughout the building reminding everyone to checkout before 10am. It's a horrible noise and I pity anyone who wasn't checking out that morning, as it sounded like a fire alarm! We also checked out LITERALLY, not joking, 1 minute past 10am, and as we were coming down to the desk, they called our names out on a giant intercom throughout the hostel to tell us to come down! Bizarre system and could be pretty embarrassing for some!!

Pretty unacceptable all round, although the room was clean and the beds comfortable.

The YMCA at Bath is located in the heart of the city and is five minutes walk from shopping, main attractions and the best restaurants. The YMCA building is located in a courtyard which has a great sense of tranquility and very positive vibes. We loved sitting with coffee in the courtyard. Its like this hidden heaven in the middle of the city. The YMCA has a great cafeteria and the breakfast is included in the cost of room. The food was really good. We stayed in a private room which was the most expensive option there but still had no attached toilets. That was the only disappointment. This was my first stay in a YMCA but I loved to re-live the hostel life.
