Great location, very friendly and extremely helpful. I would definitely stay there again.


Really good Hostel. Stayed for one night and everything about the hostel was perfect. The staff were very friendly and helped us enjoy our stay by bending the rules a little to allow drinks into the room. The reception 'food area' sells good food, pizzas and drinks and there is plenty of seating avaliable. Booked a 4 bed private and it was very spacious and modern. Bathrooms were very clean with shower in a separate room to toilet which was handy. Would deffinately return


It 's near from railway station and supermarket. Staffs are very helpful. If you want to rent a bicycle for traveling around Oxford, you need to walk around 15 mins to find a bicycle shop. Using Wi-Fi need extra charge. However, it's not a problem if you have prepaid SIM card.


This stay was ok, but lots of older people and families and lacks vibe. Good for budget travellers though. Location ok but could be better.


Very close to the train station. FreeInternet is not very good.


Stayed in the female dorm which had its own bathroom with separate toilet which was great. The hostel was really clean and the beds were quite comfortable. There was a little noise from the train station close by but it wasn't that bad and you could still get a decent nights sleep.


Need free wifi

One of the best hostels I've stayed in.


Good..however, staffs were not kind


Really nice that you can arrive even at night, and the proximity to the train station is convenient. Air conditioning would be good though, as you have to put up with a lot of noise from cars and trains when you need to keep the window open because of the heat.
