Central Backpackers

Oxford, England

NOONE AT THE RECEPTION! Arriving, we spent 15min ringing the dorbell nonstop; no answer on the phone, either. Got in only a couple of hours later. Checking out - same story: Nobody anywhere near the reception and no reaction to the (very loud) bell. Once you do get in, it is a very nice hostel, although incredibly noisy on going-out nights. Bedding, lockers and enough showers are provided, everything is reasonably clean. Staff, when encountered, is exceptionally friendly. BREAKFAST IS INCLUDED!!

Hi there, We just wanted to write and apologize. Looks like we had a broken door bell, and you were the first to experience it - sorry! Its all fixed now. Thanks for the rest of your nice comments, we really appreciate it. Safe travels!

Friends Hostel - Bankovsky

St Petersburg, Russia

Great place!! I've never enjoyed a Hostel stay more. The rooms are lovely and very clean (and so are the toilets and showers), there's free tea and internet and even free international calls. The staff is incredibly friendly and on top of that the place is right in the heart of town, with many of the sights in walking distance. I'm definitely going to stay there again!
