Well, the hostel is not somehow special, but the overall is really good. I really encourage everybody to have breakfast which includes traditional British cuisine. However, Internet connection is available for members of YHA hostels only unless you pay. Not convenient shower, little place for your stuff. These are just minor disadvantages, everything else is good!

We stayed 2 nights in early October and it exceeded expectations. We had a very small but spotlessly clean private en suite room with good storage. Beds slightly narrow but comfortable. Lovely public areas, superb ktichen, even with salt pepper and spices. Staff patient friendly and helpful, good recommendations of things to do. Great security. Only downside was that wifi... More

I stayed here with my two young children in the summer. It was my first experience of a YHA hostel and I was not let down. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant was ace and children ate free which was great value for money. The private room we were in was spotlessly clean and... More

I stayed 1 night with my family of four. Large en suit room. Very clean and spacious. Got a great nights sleep. Staff were very friendly and helped with advice about the local area. They all made us feel very welcome. It was also very good value. When I went for breakfast there were lots of other guests enjoying the... More

The hostel is just a short walk from the train station. We had a functional room for 4 with en suite bathroom. It had been recently renovated and everything was clean. We arrived at the hostel at about 8:00 pm but the staff was able to serve us a tasty dinner before the kitchen closed. Noise was not a problem... More

Thank you for the review, we're really glad you had a great stay. Due to our hostel being in a residential area it is very difficult for us to get parking. There is parking available on the roads around the hostel, which is free from 6pm to 9am. If you are here for a longer period of time we suggest... More

The hilton it's not but for a youth hostel pretty good. 4 bedded room a bit cramped and no hooks, but adequate. Bar area surprisingly nice. Staff friendly and helpful. Easy to get everywhere but city centre a bit of a hike. Try restaurants in Mill rd. Salisbury pub nearby quite nice

Five star ho(s)tel really! If I have to quote just some non perfect things: no free wifi (it's 2014, a connection it's like water), breakfast should be better (some cakes?), showers are realy too small. Anyway, perfect location, just few minutes from railway station (perfect if you land in Stansted) clean & confortable.

The YHA has just been recently renovated. It is very fresh and the communal areas are lovely. I stayed at the YHA for 7 days whilst I did a course in Cambridge.
