1 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW via mobile

Room was very small and uncomfortable. On the fifth floor and no lift- inconvenient with big backpacks and luggage. Bathrooms/ showers were on the lower ground level and therefore found myself walking up and down 5 flights of stairs just to use the bathroom/ shower. Floors were very loud and walls very thin- made sleeping a good nights sleep difficult... More

I've been backpacking around the UK for about a month and a half and I think this is likely the worst accommodation I've had thus far. As other people mentioned, the location is great but the facilities are not. The showers are in the basement (and the female showers have a motion sensor, so be prepared for the light to... More

As Bath is quite expensive, the Hostel was okay priced for what we needed for our weekend away. The price includes use of towels and lockers for valuables (bring your own padlock). The location of the Hostel is great as it is only a ten minute walk from Bath Spa Train Station and about a ten minute walk to all... More

The location is fantastic - very central and near to key attractions, eating houses, and a Waitrose. Bunk beds are reasonably comfortable, and you get free towels and free wifi. Lockers are small and you must bring your own lock. Seriously lacking in toilet and shower facilities (showers are in the basement, and you will have to share them with... More

My boyfriend and I are backpacking around the UK at the moment and have stayed at many hostels. We were nervous about staying here after reading the reviews, but honestly it wasn't that bad. The rooms were clean enough, although it was really hard to get into the top bunks as they are amongst the ceiling beams/supports. The wall next... More

Friendly and helpful staff who made you feel welcome. There weren't enough plug sockets in the 12-bed dorm I stayed. There is just one toilet on each floor but more toilets and the showers are in the basement. The rooms were good and quite clean and there were small lockers which I found really useful. The hostel is perfectly located,... More

Location - only 5 mins from major train/bus station, and 2 mins to center of Bath, couldn't have asked more for the price. Staff - friendly and helpful staff. Bathroom facilities - SERIOUSLY lacking... only 2 shower cubicles for the entire hostel, and 1 toilet for each floor. Water for one shower only lukewarm. Power sockets - Every person in... More

Great location, very easy to find. We reached there about 1 am and thanks for the team who have waited for our arrival. Room and beds are good for the price. Will visit you again next time. Very near to the Roman Bath and near to tourist information.

It's a hostel. It's cheap. There's a bathroom on every floor, but the main bathrooms are in the basement, along with the showers. There's bunkbeds. It doesn't have maids. Get over it. That said this is still in my books by far the best hostel I've stayed at. The staff is welcoming and very helpful. Kitchen is well stocked and... More

Bath is lovely but expensive, so if you want to see the city and not pay an arm and a leg this is a good option. Its not the best decorated or the most trendy but the beds were comfortable and the shower clean, though the bathrooms could use some improvement. Pretty average but for anything under £20 a bed,...
