Negatives: The bed itself was stiff, unconvinced how sanitary sheets were (even though they clean them, looked old and warn), no central heating other than plug in heaters, and no internet connection in room. Positives: Strong internet in common rooms. Large and friendly common rooms with big tv, games, big kitchen. Multiple bathrooms/showers nice and hot! Staff: AMAZING and helpful. Free storage available for the day, safe system. Continental breakfast. Many plugs in room. Location perfect!

It was alright. The showers weren't great and the place could have been cleaner. It was pretty pricey for what we got as well. Staff were nice and location was fairly close to clubs and the university if that's what you want to see!

Not the cleanest place ever, but it was ok. There were separate bathrooms by gender, what I really liked (sharing SHOWERS with men is not that comfortable), although it was a bit cold and the shower water was very hot (for me it wasn't a problem, just when it got cold for a few mins). Staff was really thoughtful and friendly, especially the first girl that helped me to find things to do in Oxford. Breakfast was ok: tea, coffee,2 different breads, nutella, butter, jam and toasters to warm it up.

Really enjoyed my stay at Oxford backpackers. Great service, staff and atmosphere. Not sure if this is just a requirement but all the staff have 3 letter names... If Lou, Kat, and Nat are working there still they will make sure you really get a good experience of Oxford!

Of all the hostels I've visited, my time at Oxford Backpackers has been my favorite. The staff (Lu, Nat, Jeremy and the rest) are incredibly kind, fun and great at helping you get settled and sorted. Definitely a place I'll revisit, when next I'm in Oxford.

Party vibe. Great staff. Only sticking point is that it's certainly not the cleanest hostel I've stayed in.

This is a very friendly and relaxed hostel. Breakfast is provided, but there and no curtains on the beds. There were also no power points in the bedrooms. The staff were very helpful and the bar is great. A very good hostel for anyone wanting to socialise and meet new people.
