“YMCA Fitness Center (not Hostel)”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

The YMCA fitness center is across the street from the Bath Hilton. The fitness center is fantastic. They have 5-6 classes most days, 3 on Saturday and 1 on Sunday. The fitness classes cost about 4 GBP each. They are very good. Especially like the Body Pump - cardio weightlifting to upbeat music and great circuit classes. The circuit classes are fast paced exercises in the workout room. You are at each station from 45 - 90 seconds. Most are geared to cardio strength training.
They also have Zumba, yoga and pilates classes. Highly recommend. Would like to have this good of excise options at home.

Ok. I had an awful experience, but it was due to the patrons staying there, and not the facilities or the staff. Great location, my single room was spacious, with a desk and closet, but pretty basic. The carpet was stained and dingy, but the room was clean, as were the bathrooms. The breakfast was fine; the front desk staff were lovely and kind. The security is pretty good, you can't get in to the dorm areas without a key card. The internet connection is AWFUL. I had a horrible night due to drunk A-holes screaming for an hour in the hall and on several occasions pulling on my door knob and banging on my door. Once they were removed by the staff, there was the loud courtyard to deal with - glad I had earplugs, or I wouldn't have slept all night. In general, the place is pretty loud - when someone shuts a door it echoes down the hall, and when I woke up at 8 am the next day, someone had music blasting. My advice would be to stay away from the courtyard side of the building and bring earplugs. Personally, I wouldn't stay again, but it's not due to the staff or facility itself.

Room Tip: Stay away from the front courtyard- it gets loud at night when people come back from the bars and in...

I stayed in a single room and used the shared bathrooms. The breakfast (free Continental breakfast, very affordable cooked breakfast) was a good way to start the day. They give you a security fob to enter the accommodations area, so it felt more secure. The location is wonderful, a short walk to all the sights in central Bath.

A bonus: I had a great view of the Bath Abbey from my room.

Wifi or internet use (with or without your own computer) is not free; you have to purchase minutes from the front desk. Bring your own towels, shampoo, toothpaste, etc. They only provide soap.

Room Tip: See if you can get a room with a nice view, or find out which wings have the bathroom that you would...

We stayed here in a triple room which was clean and tidy. We were right next to the shared bathrooms (good showers) and would all recommend this as a cheap alternative to a hotel.

Fantastic hostel, clean, friendly, located in really nice area. Great view from room windows. The only downside is that you have to pay for using Internet.
