It would be illegal to put 10 pigs in a room without ventilation. Just put a vent in the door. -- The short guy with the spanish accent was cocky and rude, the rest of the staff and hostel were good. Loud noise from the street; every night.

I was very pleasantly surprised by central backpackers. It felt very homey and had amazing bathroom facilities. The bar area was amazing to meet people as a solo traveller and it was a 5 min walk from the train station and the centre of the university. Amazing stay.

Checkin was disorganized but the staff were always very nice, everything was clean and the location's close to the centre of town and the train station. Room was very nice, facilities fine.

Thanks for leaving us a review. When we are training new staff sometimes they will be less confident whilst they learn the job, and new working environment. We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us, and hope to see you again soon!

A really cosy and central place to stay - a short walk into town, this place is really homey with facilities to cook your own stuff, a nice little bar and common areas. It's not huge but definitely good value for money. Plus a free breakfast, would stay again

Not really very clean, the breakfast is a bit meh, only three showers for everyone and the common area has smoking which for non - smokers, is rather unpleasant. It's also very noisy (but they do provide free earplugs). Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be much choice in Oxford so this is probably still your best bet.

This place was incredible! Such an awesome rooftop bar, free use of towels, so many spreads at breakfast and a large selection of movies and games to play! Right across the road from an awesome club that can let you stumble back home easy enough!

Great location very close to bus station and not far from central town. Rooms were adequate size with lockers and poet points per bed. Slight lack of showers but not too bad. Good deck area although music playing until midnight right by bedroom windows.
