I've been traveling solo through the UK for a while now and I must say this is one of the best hostels I have stayed in yet. The staff are all super friendly, the very small issue I had was sorted out super fast and the showers are hot and spacious. They have a kitchen which is super convenient and... More

There for a couple of days waiting to move to a new job. Sociable and friendly staff, great mix of nationalities and some great extras e.g. free tickets to comedy club. Common area is good and rooms quite quiet.

So at first when i checked in i was quite shocked at how many people in the room but i start to be very fond of it as you start meeting different people from different backgrounds . The bar was amazing , shots were quite ridiculously cheap so that was when it was in my good books. As guest we... More

I was nervous when booking a hostel as my previous stay in one was terrible but, when I arrived, I was pleasantly surprised! At the front desk, I was greeted by a really friendly staff member who told me everything I had to know. When I went to my room, I was firstly impressed with the security as there was... More

Best place to stay. Not only the hostel is clean, well maintained and is well located, but in addition, the staff is friendly, helpful, and when it comes to party, it's NOT a joke, they are really good at it too. You'll not see everything of Oxford if you don't stay there. HARDLY RECOMMENDED!

1) They have a room downstairs to keep your bikes safe, 2) Chill area with TV, sofa, kitchen, etc. Good vibe. 3) it is in the middle between Oxford train station and Gloucester Green Bus Station. 5 minutes walk to both. 4) There are plenty places you can get food in the area. It is in the middle of Oxford... More

As my reservation at another location, we were lucky this hostel fitted us in at a discounted rate. However, the 12-bed dorm we were put in was tight. There's just enough room to go from bed to bed, so one needs to be creative on where to store the luggage. There are small lockers available by the common room for... More

Stayed here with 12 friends for 1 night in July 2013. We had a dorm for 12 of us and it was very small with 6 bunk beds and only 1 window. The bed was clean and comfortable, although the room was VERY hot, so it was hard to sleep. The shower/bathrooms were really clean and not busy when I... More
