I stayed at Kipps in April 2014, and I think it is way better than any other hostels I know. It is very clean, cosy and the staff are really friendly and helpful. You can think of this place as an old Victorian house, it feels like home. It is close to Canterbury East station, and 10 mins walk to... More

Old, english style house ten minutes walking to the city centre. Confortable and clean doublebed room facing the garden, linen and towels provided, the shared bathroom was clean all the time (you can see the staff cleaning bathroom also in the late evening). Beautiful living room where in the evening staff arrange free snack and drink for all the guests.... More

I do a fair bit of hostelling, and this is one of the best I've been to. I stayed here while attending a postgrad conference--it's hard to do work things while staying in dorms, so I booked a single room. It was small--really small, barely enough room to put luggage--but cosy and well-equipped with a kettle, a sink, and even... More

I stayed here recently and found it excellent in every way. The staff are friendly and helpful, the establishment is clean and its situation within easy walking distance of the town centre. I stayed in a private room with a really comfortable bed and good heating. The price is really good, considering that guests can also make full use of... More

I recently stayed at this hostel with some friends, we chose it after reading some reviews and I'm so glad we did. The staff were absolutely amazing, couldn't fault them at all. They chill out with you, play pool with you and we even had an awesome bbq with them. The mixed dorm was a little creaky but when it's... More

The staff were very friendly and seemed genuinely interested in their customers, and were very helpful. The hostel itself was lovely and very good value. Would definitely recommend this whether you're after a quick stop off for a night or two or a longer stay.

My husband and I stayed 3 nights in June and we highly recommend it! This is a former home in a quiet residential neighborhood. We had a double room at the back of the first floor. Helpful, friendly staff. Clean, comfortable room with a nice view of the garden space out back and a sink in room (towels included). Clean... More

Kipps Hostel was brilliant; the staff went out of their way to be helpful. Felt very much a home from home. My 16 month son was welcomed and respected as a guest in his own right. The rooms were innmaculate and the other guests pleasant. the beds themselves were warm and ocmfrtable; good mattresses. Had no issues whatsoever. Only downside... More

Such a friendly community here. I stayed in August 2012 (a bit delayed in writing my review - sorry!) but was so glad to have 4 nights here. The staff actually live in the hostel, so they take great care to make it homely, welcoming and it therefore feels like you're staying with friends - great if you're travelling on... More
