The lounge area is the best of all the hostels I've stayed at. There's a bar with cheap drinks, and everyone hangs out reading or watching tv or playing pool or talking to new people.

My room was really dingy, dark, and the bed I slept in felt moist-- almost like it wasn't fully dry from the wash or wasn't washed at all. Wasn't my favourite hostel, but on a positive note, breakfast was included which I liked!
This hostel is amazing! It's really close to the city centre, the train station and the bus stop. It is also located at the centre of Oxford's nightlife, it seems. Many pubs, bars and nightclubs are within minutes of walking. The bathrooms, kitchen and the common area are all exceptionally clean. Also, the members of staff are very friendly, helpful, and just as international as the guests! I can most certainly say that I would stay at Oxford Backpackers again and can only recommend this hostel!
The location was excellent but the hostel appeared a bit unclean overall. However the major shortcoming was the poor illumination be it in the rooms or in the reception area. There was no route map available for people who would like to walk around the city. The beds were not squeaky unlike many other hostels. Shakya , India
This hostel was in a very good location and facilities were clean! The staff was very helpful and went out of their way to get people involved and having fun. My one complaint is that there was almost always music blasting in the common room. With no wifi in the bedrooms and silence in the hallway after 10:30 pm, it was irritating to try to Skype or plan further trip plans with the music blasting.
I've left my AC adaptor at home and they couldn't provide me one, so the staff isn't prepared for more specific help for the guests. Apart from that, everything was ok, but overall there was nothing that surprised me negatively... or positively.
very torn and old hostel. Hence look dirty. expensive for the price for its standard.
near the railway station Easy to find. Pleased environment and free and delicious breakfast
I stayed in one of the big dorms and it was incredibly noisy. location's good if you're coming in by train.
Atmosphere is warm, people from all over the world are friendly. The washroom is not clean enough. Bed is not strong enough, makes noise when sleeping. Furnitures in the room are also not so good. Dirty cupboard, rusty window, ...
