The "E" had fallen off the name "WESTGAT ". One of the awnings had crumpled and the paintwork, where there was any was peeling. A cheap hostel but very competitively priced for OxforThe standard of decor in the annexe was very poor and the shared shower very shabby but the room was clean and the single bed comfortable and the sheets were clean if not new. The bed head was falling off the bed. The next door youth hostel was full but this was not a bad alternative. The breakfast was goo

I cannot speak to accommodation at the Westgate as my room was actually in the Annex. The Annex is actually a terrace house on Abbey Road where the overflow customers are housed. I liked pretending that I lived in Oxford, so the row house really suited me well, despite the bath and toilet being down the hall. Breakfast was in the main space of the Westgate, and pleasant, with the host being very solicitous.Had a wonderful stay and enjoyed the privacy and quiet.

Good location opposite the train station and close to town. We stayed in the Annex, 8-room 2. Perfectly pleasant twin room, larger than we expected. Basic, but exactly what you would expect for the price! Only complaint would be the bathroom. The shower could do with replacing, as was covered in mould under the boards. And the toilet wouldn't flush occasionally. Thanks!

The man on reception was incredibly rude. We arrived at 2pm as we were told on the phone the previous day the room would be available from 1pm. Upon our arrival he informed us in an abrupt manner that the room wasn't ready because they had been busy. The room itself was awfully dated and didn't appear to be too clean. I understand this is a hostel and you can't expect too high standards but I have stayed on many before and none have been as bad as this and all have been cheaper!

It is an unpleasant experience. We booked the "hostel's" basic room at first, which is at another five mins walkway property. Then we found that the bathroom facilities is awful. One only got a bathtub but no shower and the other although have a shower, it looks terrible, shabby and dirty. Thus we decided to upgrade to the "hotel's" en-suite room. The money that we paid for the upgrade together with the money that paid for the basic room is more than booking an en-suite room at first
