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...


purtroppo la gentilezza del personale non ha coinciso con la pulizia dell'ostello. quando si prenota un ostello si è consapevoli che non è HIlton ma la pulizia soprattutto dei servizi igienici è alla base di ogni cosa, altrimenti si potrebbe dormire in una stalla.

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.


room 'ensuite': niet in het huis, maar in de barak achter, tegen buitendeur ( constant dichtslaan van die deur)! stapelbed', enkel staanplaats naast bed. Geen raam, enkel 2 klikraampjes in hoogte. Douchewater loopt traag weg... Kabaal 's nachts!!!! Keuken: vies en vuil, vloer vet en kleverig. Geen opvolging van de regels door het personeel ( bv afwas bleef vaak staan). Vieze handdoeken die nauwelijks vervangen werden. Na onderhandelen kregen we na 2 dagen (van de 6) een basic kamer in huis.

Nice staff, nice facilities, quiet place, attractive building but...finding this place is quite difficult and walking with all your bags is very hard. You should recommend how to take the bus there. Take a bus heading to the university, but still when you are going for the first time it is difficult to know when to get off. Also the internet is not free. You must pay five pounds for a day or seven pounds for two.


Merci pour cette nuit calme et accueillante. Bon climat de partage. J ai aimé mon passage.

Great location if you're looking for something a bit secluded and off the beaten path. It's a bit of a hike to reach it if you're not travelling by car, but well worth it once you arrive. It's in a very nice area of Bath on top of a hill overlooking the city. I thoroughly enjoyed the scenic walks into town everyday along the canal. The hostel itself was more characteristic than most and very well kept and clean. No complaints! Would recommend.


Only issue was shower was like a slow running tap.
