Overall, this is a perfectly adequate hostel. It is centrally located. The staff is really helpful and very nice. I found it to be quite clean. However, the place is loud! The windows are cheap and there is a local bar with a party scene. It doesn't really seem to dim the noise to close the windows. You will also... More

Abandon all hope ye who entre this place. If you want to sleep, look else where... The beds are terrible, uncomfortable and for you germofobes ever night Ive stayed here the beding, toilet and general room are all dirty. For some bizzarre reason the window was open, everything was unplugged and the beds aren't made. Don't be fooled by any... More

Stayed here whilst attending an event at the University. Hiring a 4 bed room for myself was cheaper than going to a hotel. Glad I did: the hostel is friendly and very good value. The window did not shut properly in my room but that was a minor problem. The greater issue was the noise: not from fellow hostellers but... More

Quite good. I think that the price for a single bottle of water (a half a litre one) is too expansive, and that's a very bad thing. The room where we slept is nice, the bathroom is small but quite comfortable for having a quick shower. The staff is amazing: really nice, professional and easy going guys. The price for... More

wish I could give this place the thumbs up but I left one day early today and was furious as I had stayed at this hostel before when the place was clean enough for humans or animals to be housed! I was shown my room. The corridor where my room was stank! Then the room stank worse of drains. The... More

Stayed here for two nights in early December. When I first got there I was given a room which when I first walked into smelt of urine and when looking at the bathroom it had water ALL over the floor (presumably the plumbing wasn't working). Thankfully the staff were lovely enough to move me to another room which was much... More

I stayed at YHA Oxford during the first weekend of November. The hostel was really centrally located, about a five minute walk to the train station and a ten minute walk to the bus station. The front desk was very helpful and friendly. I was in a six person room, which had its own private bathroom. The beds were clean,... More

I found this hostel really good. It was clean, staff very friendly and always ready to help.The only bad note was the kitchen, quite small if you consider the total amount of guest this place can host. Having a meal in a decent time was impossible 'cause the kitchen was full of other people but a lot of good points:... More
