This place is no longer a hostle. They have become a boarding house for bus-loads of European school-age children. Stayed for four nights, booking 3 months ahead, and had to change rooms daily so they could accomodate the group bookings. These groups also dominate the kitchens am and pm (as the leaders attempt to feed 50+ students en masse), the bathrooms (there are only 2 sinks per floor ( to share with 15+ teenage girls), and the common room.

Hello. Our hostel receives groups every now and then, like most hostels. We like to keep the diversity of guest that provides us a special atmosphere. We are sorry if you had to change rooms on your last night: that's something not common and we only ask that when no other option is possible. Hope next time the hostel crowd makes your experience better. See you then!

YHA Stow on the Wold

Cotswolds, England

Awesome place to stay to get out of the bustle of town. There is a bus from the Train (moreton in marsh) or the taxi cost 10 bps. Full kitchen facilities with all you need and a walk-able Tesco. Good walking trails stem from here to many close towns. Showers were a bit wonky (old house).NO WIFI. Don't bother w/ their breakfast. Staff is strange but leaves everyone alone, Fellow travelers are mostly families; nice mellow vibe.

Aberdeen Youth Hostel

Aberdeen, Scotland

When first arrived i did not like cause it seemed dirty, but ...then i saw what was available. The kitchen has all you may need, there are many lounges (TV, reading, alcoves w/ seats) so you can leave your dorm and be noisy elsewhere. Also, the beds are spaced far apart so it is not cramped in the dorms and they provide space to hang clothes and store your gear away from your bunk. They have washers for clothes free, but the wifi costs 3£/hr. Gender specific bathrooms have generous hot water.

The Walrus Hostel

London, England

Pro- The staff is on-site and actually handles situations that arise immediately!! Is VERY clean considering the traffic, incl. beds. Sometimes a wait for showers/sinks. Kitchen is workable (open 8-21). There is a bar that is wonderfully social on ground floor, this is also where the FREE breakfast is served. Also FREE wifi throughout. Con- the bar is the ONLY COMMON AREA and is closed after last call and before 8am. no other place to hang-out if your hours are jet-lagged and room-mates sleep.
