Property Description

Bath Backpackers is a vibrant, community based, independent hostel for travellers who would like to experience our gorgeous city in good company. Join other guests for walks, cultural events, dinners and parties, so you can connect with people, make friends and have a good time.

Free Wi-Fi, free teas, free towels, free earplugs (just in case!) and a well-equipped kitchen for you to use... Bath Backpackers offers budget accommodation for everyone over 18. Bicycle storage and luggage storage are also available free of charge for our guests. We also have a laundry service.

Right in the city centre, the hostel is a 3 minutes' walk from the train station, the starting point of the skyline walk, the Roman Baths, the Abbey and the rugby stadium. It couldn't be better located!

We want our hostel to be inclusive and safe for everybody. We offer mixed dorms and female only dorms.
Unfortunately, like many Georgian buildings in Bath our hostel isn't well-designed for people with physical disabilities.

Bath Backpackers has a warm and inviting environment. It has facilities for cooking which was important for me and the staff are very helpful and friendly. It's also in an ideal location, close to the station and to plenty of shops and Bath sites. I loved my stay here, would recommend them for others and if I return to Bath I'd stay here again.

Woke up with bites all over my legs from bed bugs. Paper thin pillows. Minuscule lockers. No place in showers for clothes, towels, etc so everything gets wet. Very little hot water. Weak wifi that drops in and out. Very good staff.

Had the most fabulous stay at Bath Backpackers. I initially booked two nights and ended up extending my stay by another two nights because I enjoyed it so much. The owners, Kate and Aris, are incredibly lovely people that were easy to talk to and offered a wealth of recommendations. The staff were all lovely and friendly people, I believe all are volunteer travelers. The common room was almost always bustling and most people at the hostel were eager to chat, making it really easy to make friends. Would high
