    Very Good

    As hostels go, OB is middle of the road. The rooms are fairly clean, the mattresses are comfortable (though the pillows are awfully thin). The kitchen is generously supplied with cookware. The bathrooms are clean, but the shower floor tiles are so grotty it's hard to tell if they're clean or not. The staff are friendly, and the location is very convenient - though Oxford is such a small town you could be almost anywhere there and not be too far from either the train station or the universities.

    Showers and toilets were a bit dirty and people were smoking there as well.. Not very nice. The corridors need some ventilation because the smell around the rooms is not very nice. I guess this place is so "cheap" because of these issues. But sincerely I think it can be improved. Other than that it is a Hostel with a decent breakfast and nice atmosphere among young people.

    Having previously stayed in a hostel in oxford that was cheaper than this one, I expected more. The only clean thing about the hostel was the bedsheets as they are washed daily. The bathroom was ok to go toilet ok but not to shower in. Lack of plugs to charge devices was also an issue. But what bothered me the most was that you could walk into certain dorms without doing the PIN number!! The only good thing about it is the location and the people who stayed there were friendly.
