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.

The staff were really nice, and the atmosphere was amazing. All that could improve it is places to lock up your bigger bags in the rooms

Superbly friendly and comfortable hostel in Oxford Centre, near Train and Bus Stations. Clean, tidy rooms and Kitchen for self catering.Small Bar, where smoking is permitted. Absolutely the best small budget hostel in Oxford.

Ok hostel with some issues. Be aware, especially on weekends the hostel sits right between 2 late nite dance clubs. Noise IS an issue. Be forewarned! Second issue is terrible wifi. Forget using it in the room! Decent bunks. Adequate charging points. New carpet in my dorm! Lockers adequate for small packs and valuables, need own lock. Breakfast adequate. Showers, toilets adequate and clean. Nice rooftop terrace but I didn't use because they allow smoking. The smoke was terrible! To bad really...

The hostel can be a bit noisy, as other travellers said, but free earplugs are on offer so the staff are doing what they can! I enjoyed my stay, the common areas are great and lots of details have been attended to - there are books, games, computers which are free to use, and even a map of middle earth on the wall of the dorm I stayed in...

As the name suggests, centrally located in Oxford close to all amenities. However, if you're sensitive to loud noise at night, ear plugs would be wise as the hostel is located in the same street where numerous clubs carry on until the early hours. The upstairs balcony is also quite good to chill out and meet other travellers. Overall, a great place to stay!

Stayed here before. Common room area has been refurbished a bit. Room was decent size (8 bed dorm). Though I was up slightly later than 10am one staff member offered me breakfast as he was tidying up. Was a nice thought. Central location. Just avoid bars and clubs downstairs!

The room was too warm and, with the windows open, it was noisy too. But besides that it was great!

Not a party hostel as such but it is above a club so it was super loud. Need a padlock for the lockers and they are quite small. Deck is lovely, decent bed and nice linens.
