Lovely stay at the Walrus Hostel. Stayed in 18 bed dorm, and everything was cozy and clean-if a bit worn. Bathrooms and showers were clean, and it was nice to have a room with two sinks and two showers in the dorm itself. Staff were friendly and had lots of advice and suggestions--also they had free towels, earplugs, and locks for the lockers. Great location, close to Waterloo, underground, and downtown London. Bit noisy outside at night, but nothing earplugs couldn't fix. Would stay again.
Bath YMCA was a really good value for the money. Dorms were clean and quiet, and the location was right in the heart of Bath. Staff were helpful and nice. Only complaint would be that it would be nice to have wifi throughout the hostel, instead of just the common area; however, the common areas are large and comfy enough that going down there for internet access isn't too big of a deal. Overall, great stay, would recommend.
Great location in Oxford! Only took about 5 minutes to get to the heart of the town and less than 5 min to get to the train station. Staff were friendly and genuinely seemed to enjoy interacting with guests. A lot of fun activities for guests-such as a Wednesday night pub crawl-and suggestions for what to do with you stay no matter the weather. Dorm rooms were cozy and comfortable, with good size storage lockers and plenty of outlets. Also there is an outdoor covered terrace which was lovely.
Great stay! Hostel is in a great location in Jordaan, only about 5-10 minutes walking from the center of Amsterdam. Staff are friendly and helpful, and the wifi reaches throughout the hostel. Complimentary breakfast is one of the best values I had seen on my trip--real hot food like eggs and toast instead of just cereal and tea. Staff does dinner every night that guests can join in for only 5 euro. Overall comfortable and quiet, would definitely stay again.
St. Christopher's Paris is excellent. The facilities are top notch--all the beds in the dorms have individual outlets, curtains, and reading lights, and the security lockers are huge and can easily fit all of your luggage. Staff are friendly and super helpful. The bar and restaurant downstairs provide a great place to hang out and meet fellow travelers-plus there is an excellent happy hour.
