The hostel wasn't right in the city centre, but there was a bus that stopped at the hostel and could take you there if you didn't want to walk. The showers were clean and worked well and the beds seemed fairly comfortable. There was a 'restaurant' where you could order dinner, however as far as I was aware, there was not a kitchen available for use. The only other downside was that you had to pay for wifi if you are not a YHA member, however it was quite cheep.


The staff was nice but not very helpful (they didnt really know the prices of the roman bath nor the other bath which are two main attractions of the city). It was a nice place though, worth the money. Be careful to take the bus though, because the hostel is at the top of a big hill and you dont wanna walk all the way up...


Great location with bus stop right outside. Beautiful building and gardens. En suite bathrooms could do with some work but overall this is a convenient and not too expensive place to stay in Bath..

The location is very hard to find. It didn't show on my GPS, so my advice is that don't go there after 8pm since it is dark and a bit scary at night if you are new to the city.

There was no car parking. Kitchen facilities were dismal. Rooms were dark and crowded. Bathroom shower had hardly any water pressure and were very small cubicles. They are being improved and had maintainence due to which there was lot of noise going on for self catering.
