Stayed at Kips with a group of 30 teenagers and 4 adults leaders, couldn't have asked for a better environment. The staff made us feel welcome from the get go and the hostel has a very homely feel. Proper kitchen with storage, fridge, freezer, gas and electric stoves. Short walk from the city centre, highly recommend and would happily start... More

My gf and I spent very beautifull days in Kipps, lovely staff and location. Rooms are cleaned every day. We used the kitchenette for lunch and dinner. A very cheap continental breakfast inside. The historical centre is five minutes walking.

I recently stayed at the Kipps hostel with a friend in a mixed 6-bed dorm. The staff are really friendly and make you feel at home. The beds are comfortable. Locks are available for a small deposit which is great for locking away your valuables. The free tea and coffee facility is great and each morning a breakfast of toasts... More

My boyfriend and I only stayed at Kipps one morning after arriving at 4am in Canterbury, and left around 10am, as we needed to get a few hours sleep. The aim of the trip was to visit Kent Uni, which is quite close to the hostel. The Kipps is a lovely, incredibly charming little hotel. The staff are really warm... More

I booked the whole of Kipps for a weekend away with a large group of friends and we couldn’t have had a better time. Massive thanks are due to Carmen, Brian and all the staff for being so welcoming and lovely – and for putting up with a fairly rowdy bunch. They cooked up a great BBQ, made us lunches,... More

We booked out Kipps, Canterbury for a big get-together and we couldn't have picked a better place for it. The staff were fantastic, so friendly and helpful and they cooked us up a delicious BBQ on the Friday night too. It was also widely acknowledged by all that the beds are also really comfortable. Very unusual for hostel beds. Can't... More

I stayed here and absolutely loved it. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I arrived on a Friday night and they hosted a free pizza dinner for everyone, which was a great way for people to meet each other. They did a similar BBQ on Saturday. I was in the 10 bed room, which actually only had 9 beds.... More

We booked not knowing what to expect and we were just delighted by the house, the room, the very friendly staff. We were amazed that there are still places in this world where you can benefit from free stuff!!! The first night it was free pizza and the next one free sausages ( because we were on a business trip... More

The perfect budget stay in Canterbury. Well-located, in a quiet street, I enjoyed a peaceful stay in my own room at a very reasonable rate. Everything was clean and I could not have asked for more. There is a tranquil garden if you just want to chill out - indeed, I would have done so if I had not been... More
