in general hostel was better than in London)


86%

Very nice place, near the city center. Everything is reachable by walking. Clean, the showers are good. The breakfast is a bit of a chaos, there's not much place to sit and you are supposed to wash your own dishes, but it looks like not everyone knows how to wash their own dishes, so everytime I'd use sth I had to wash again. But very good in an overall! I'd stay there again.

Fairly good hostel, the 6 bed dorm was was very small, but I only stayed 1 night. Good location close to the bus station and walkable distance to everything in Oxford.

Location was great, close to the bus station. The staff was very accommodating for our late arrival and early check out. However, our room was extremely small for five bunk beds. Definitely not enough room, and the lockers are very small, only big enough for a small bag or purse.

Average hostel, staff lovely though. No air conditioning or fans in the room however so be prepared for it to be hot, and noisy with car traffic on the street side if you keep your window open. . .

They seemed to have a wide spread for breakfast, that was good. The staff member at reception was quite stressed because he had to be doing reception, laundry,breakfast and everything at once. I think they need at least two people to man the front desk.

My room was just fine, but one person living/working there had the worst smelling feet. Common room was way too hot. A fan in a window would work wonders.

Probably I just get what 16.50 worth for. The hostel is full of annoying immature people. My bedroom stink of feet. Some of the staff are nice and helpful while others aren't. The shared bathroom is not very clean and the whole place is quite damp.

Strictly disciplined (+++++ for that), secure and systematic. The atmosphere does take a blow for that, but the price makes up for it. The location is great during the day and horrible during the night, there is so much noise that it's impossible to sleep well if your room is facing the main road. Make sure to ask for a room thats facing the other way if you want to sleep!

The hostel it's self was fantastic. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and the facilities were clean and well kept. The location however was a nightmare. Being located next door to a late night club meant that I was kept awake until 4am each by drunken idiots screaming and trying to start fights with anyone in sight. Perhaps this is less of a problem in colder months but in mid-july when you must keep the windows open to cool the sweltering room it's a serious problem.

Definitely one of the better hostels I stayed at in England. Bathrooms, kitchen and common areas were clean and everything worked well. The hostel definitely encourages guests to be social and this made for a communal feel.

Easy going and friendly staff made for a great atmosphere in the hostel. Great communal area and facilities. Price, for the location, is fantastic. Would recommend to anyone.

This hostel was the perfect walking distance to the center of Oxford. The staff was great! They were always helpful.


83%

The location was convenient and it was only a walking distance to many attractions. The only downside is that the wifi cannot be used in the room. But overall, it is a decent place for a stay.
