Im happy to have stay at this hostel, in 2011 and 2013, cheap for a town like oxford. Very good location close to the center & train station. Everything essential is available but the main problem is space. It was difficult to reach beds in the dormitory, cramped and with small & insuifficient window. Large living room ok but very...

We went as a large group of 26 and were made to feel really welcome in the hostel. The place is well looked after, has a good common room and a very reasonable bar. The staff are very helpful and did all they could to make our stay enjoyable and stress free. Thanks again.

Great staff, I got hotel service at a hostel, made me feel so welcome, a lovely break from some of the hostels I have been staying at! They made sure... More

Would totally recommend this to anybody looking for cheap, friendly, simple rooms. My mate & I stayed one night one a weekender around Oxfordshire when our couchsurfing fell through and it was just what we needed. Close enough to a longstay (cheap) carpark, with clear directions on how to get there from the carpark. Easy to find, easy quick check-in.... More

It’s cheap (as compare to others in town) so overcrowded with a kind of unhealthy atmosphere all around. Small unsanitary rooms and toilets. Stairs too. And of course people smoking outside the entrance as usual in these places creating more pollution. I stayed there just 1 night around June, 2014.

I had a really good time here. Please dont expect a hotel when coming to this place. It is quintessentially what a backpackers is about.It was a bit quieter when i was here, as it was the winter period, but saying that, the staff were amazing and i had a really good time. Such a friendly and fun atmosphere. They... More

i stayed for one night at this hostel and found it was average. The location was good and the rooms comfortable, but the kitchen was very small, and the bathrooms not very clean. The only advantage is that you can be in 5 minutes in the centre of the town. Good if you are on a low budget and just... More

Really enjoyed my time at Oxford Backpackers - ended up coming back a second time. The staff were extremely welcoming, happily involving myself and a number of other guests in their evening plans. Hostel has a full kitchen which helps a lot to keep down costs when travelling on a budget. Accommodation was simple but clean. All one could ask... More
