    Staff were very welcoming and lovely. Lucked out and had the dorm to myself! The bedding was the best that I have slept on at a hostel and there was an ensuite bathroom. Cozy common area and a 15 minute walk to the heart of Canterbury. Would stay again.

    Very good hostel. Very friendly staff. The kitchen is open almost all day and it's very well equipped. Rooms are very clean. The hostel is located in a very quiet zone and it's no more than 10 min from the city centre!

    A good location and handy for all the attractions Canterbury has to offer. I basically just needed a bed for the night and Kipp's was perfect for that.

    Generally nice place, good location barely a 10 min walk to the city centre. Smelt a bit like an old ashtray if I'm totally honest but not enough to ruin my stay. The dorm lockers are way too small for a backpacker hostel. Look, there are no-frills here, It's not like its full of young people who you can go clubbing with, and I wouldn't stay here if I was a solo traveller.

    I would suggest, stay for one night and leave after that and find something which is a little more customer friendly. The kitchen rules are...(kitchen has closed hours during the day), only small lockers - nothing for a backpack, the outside door is hard to open; and if you don't like that your belongings that you left in your bed get touched from the staff... don't stay there or move it. Keep in mind you're only a paying customer! Nur der NÄCHSTE Gast zählt! Nicht der, der schon da ist.
