    A very pretty place to stay, staff were very friendly and accommodating, and we were able to have a good cheap breakfast in the morning. The only somewhat negative thing I have to say about this place is that it's in a residential area so it's a bit of a walk to get to any restaurants or pubs if the hostel pub is closed. Otherwise we had a great stay.

    Beautiful place with very friendly staff, the kitchen is brand new and well equipped. It was a bit further out of Stratford than we thought but you can easily drive or catch the bus in. Would recommend

    Clean, staff is kind, great breakfast for a cheap price. However, it's quite far away from the centre. I've seen the hostel response to other messages, they will say "there's a bus". True, but it's every hour on Sunday, it's expensive (£3.50 for a 10 minutes ride) and on Saturday there was no bus after the theatre show and I was left stranded. Uber kept delaying my journey. I walked back and it's 40 minutes on a very dark road. Place is good but keep in mind travelling to and from it

    The only hostel I could see in Stradford (but there was a heap of hotels and bed n breakfasts). It's a nice property about a 15 minute bus ride or 45 minute walk from the train station/city centre. The rooms are decent, however my 6 bed dorm only had 3 lockers. Otherwise it was okay.

    The hostel was ok, but it’s a long way from Stratford and unless you have a car, it’s difficult or expensive to get around. A taxi was £12 and the buses ran every 90 mins and cost £3.40, one way. The hot breakfast at the hostel was over £6. The food was very average quality. Overall, I probably wouldn’t stay again.

    The location is not great - it's very far away from the main centre of town, and the buses don't go very frequently on the weekend. Plus, I had a room next to the main street, and it was very loud, and I woke up frequently at night. The staff were very helpful!
