this place was pretty terrible. staff were shocking, we went to check in at 5pm and were told our room wasn't ready and we had to wait half an hour, an hour and a half later we got our room. place was pretty grungy and not in a good way. only good thing was the location. would not recommend!
Loved this hostel. The atmosphere was great. Only down side to the place was the bed was a bit uncomfortable.
The hostel has a ton going for it in what they offer. Unfortunately the execution was lacking. The common room was cramped so no more than a few people were able to talk in a group. This made it hard to meet new people. Since there's a bar in the common area you cannot bring your own alcohol when its open from 6:30-11:30 unless they close early. This caused people to hole up in their room and drink cheaply and in their own group. I met some cool people in the hall and out smoking but that's it.
Nice hostel in a lovely town. Would stay there again in a heart beat.
It was a good hostel for backpackers! Good atmosphere and nice facilities.
Good hostel with very nice good common area (TV, billard). Rooms not too big, but with individual lockers. Would definitely recommend it when going to Oxford, good location very near to bus & train station!
We found the staff very unfriendly, in fact they appeared more interested in themselves than the guests. The barman for our two night stay was on his own waka (boat). He played the music loud and in the morning he along with his friends were asleep on the guests couches . Breakfast provided was a joke. Toast with no butter and one type of jam and cereals. The showers were clean but environment appeared dirty and stunk of smoke at the entrance. Drunk guests also keep us awake late into the night.
Good hostel, lots of fun. Breakfast basic, wifi poor. would stay again though. nice staff
