Super friendly and welcoming staff, had a great night out with them when I was there. Only staff are allowed in the luggage storage room which makes your belongings super safe. Rooms and showers are decent. The 12 bed dorm would be way overcrowded if it were full - too many beds in too smaller room, but in off-peak times it's fine.

Overall ok. Great location near train with decent beds. Bar isn't really a social spot and only open minimal hours. Also didn't love the quiet hour rule at 10:30, but that's obviously a personal preference. Kitchen is really tiny and breakfast is super basic, but otherwise a solidly ok hostel.

A good place to stay in Oxford, if you're on a budget. Definitely for backpackers, the whole place had that slightly dirty feel - but in saying this, it was clear that it was reasonably well maintained. Lots of people coming and going in the dorm overnight, but that's what you get with 16 beds. Overall it was good value for money. Shout out to the carlton blues fan behind the bar...

It was good, but it has no lift so you might need to drag your luggage up the stairs. Apart from some little insects flying in the kitchen, everything was okay.

Only one power socket in a 4bdrm dorm. No individual lights either. Was very noisy in the early morning, people up and about in the hallway not bothering to keep quiet. Great location from station and short walk into city. Basic breakfast but good enough.

Basic facilities so if you don't have high expectations its good value for the location. It's clean but feels in need of a refurbishment.

This hostel is close to the bus station. The room felt a bit cramped but was fine. The lockers were quite small. The kitchen, bathroom and showers were clean. There is pelnty of space to relax in the hall or the bar/common area. I enjoyed my stay and would stay again.
