    Good range of facilities from guest kitchen to full-service breakfast and dinners. There are several lounge and chill-out rooms, plus a garden - all in the centre of Oxford. The cafe provides food and drink throughout the day and evening. An excellent hsptel.

    Loved the water fountain in the lobby and especially the location of this hostel. Also we think that the hostel looks way nicer in reality than in the pictures. The people and staff were nice, our twin room even had towels and the bathroom was very clean. Supermarkets were close by: Waitrose (with bulk section) is 10 mins by foot and Sainsbury’s about 5 mins away. I can also recommend the delicious vegan falafel burger for a nice but affordable dinner at the hostel. We’ll visit again!

    Very nice hostel. The room were clean and quite. It is located within walking distance from the center and bus station (5-10mins max) and right next to the train station. I felt really safe and the staff was lovely. I stayed in a female dorm of 6 which was really confortable. The only downsize would be the very small bathroom BUT bathroom and toilet were separated which is a big plus! I would definitely recommend :)

    The hostel is very dated and is in desperate need of an update. The carpet flooring has a lot of old stains on them and the shower was tiny and had no lighting. Decent for the price and great location near the train station but doesn’t give you the best first impression of Oxford.
