Lovely garden and very pleasant staff. Only drawback is there is only one toilet and shower in the dorm.

I found staff very helpful, especially when I had difficulties paying on my first night due to unavoidable external circumstances. There was a beautiful garden to sit in to take breakfast, and I had the privilege to meet the gardener, and to hear that they had won an award for it the previous year. I appreciated too that the hostel was kept quiet at nights.

Once again the staff were welcoming and it was wonderful to stay there! I would go back again. Great base to see the sites not only in Canterbury but also the surrounding areas.

This has been the best hostel I've stayed at. The staff was so friendly and welcoming. I loved the events that they put on, such as pizza on Friday and a BBQ on Saturday. It helped everyone get to know each other.

This was the cleanest hostel I have stayed at, with the nicest staff. I really enjoyed staying here. For 5£ they do your laundry for you, and fold it.

Kipps is by far the best hostel I've stayed at, in the UK and in Europe. Staff were outstanding, and lots of little extras really made my stay so much better, such as a clean towel each day and a free BBQ dinner one night. Beautiful garden, lots of space to chill in the hostel, not too far to walk into the center of town.

I felt like at home. Staff were very very nice (I could never get tired of emphasizing how nice staff were). One of those great hostels that will contribute to make your trip an amazing experience.

Je ne sais pas ce que sont les "Bonnes affaires" et "Facilitées". Je suppose que ce sont de bonnes choses alors je mets BON. Nous étions 7 personnes, groupe mixte de 10 à 66 ans et nous sommes très content de notre séjours. Merci pour tout.

This was a great hostel to stay at, the staff were very kind. The place was very clean, with comfy beds and towels provided as well. Security was good with a code to access the front door as well as a key for the dorm. The kitchen was very large and the garden outside was beautiful and a great place to sit and have your breakfast. Its a short walk to the centre of town and near everything you need. Would definitely recommend this place to others!

Excellent! It was like staying at a mates house. Great little outdoor garden, well stocked kitchen, friendly and helpful staff and walking distance to everything. Beds aren't super comfy but aren't bad, quite noisy bunks but I slept quite well and that's pretty much the only negative (which is really minor when you take into account everything else). Loved it, would highly recommend it!!!
