It's hard to tell how terrible this place is. It begins with the rude reception guy, then the TINY and dirty room in the upper floor with a broken window, a low ceiling you have to be careful not to hit your head on the beams, and holes in the wall you keep all night imagining the creatures that might...

I have traveled 16 countries, some I visited several times, but this had to be the dirtiest backpackers I have EVER stayed in, the staff are backpackers themselves so do a decent enough job, the information posted around the building lacks any required details such as a list of food outlets without any operating hours, the kitchen has only two...

I asked for the cheapest room but wasn't told about it - instead I was placed to the more expensive one even the hostel had nothing but space. The hostel itself was alright for short visits. The shower was okay. The kitchen was small but sufficient if not planning to prepare all meals of days. The dorm was below an... More

I stayed here one night earlier this year. I checked in, paying with card which incurred a fee, but didn't have any cash on me. After paying, was informed by staff that I needed to supply them with a security key deposit in cash, so had to go hunting around for an ATM. Was a bit peeved - would have... More

Great location, great price, excellent facilities with keypad access so security is great. And the staff were are very friendly and helpful. The wifi worked well and all the attractions are less than a 5 minute walk away. Beds were a little small but still comfortable. Checkin is earlier than most and checkout is later which is always a good... More

So bad experience . The responsible person treats so bad to the people and tries to charge their guest for everything . Take care choosing this hostel because he force the people to give a good rate and if it is not like this he doesn't give you back the deposit. Sorry :(((

I did review before I booked the hostel. I was already mentally prepared to deal with a "below average" hostel because of the rating and reviews and the price(the cheapest in bath at the moment when i booked). I arrive at Bath early in the morning and left my luggage there with no hassle. Later on I only get back... More

We stayed here as everything else was booked. The bathrooms were so dirty and smelled. The staff were friendly and location was good. It was not a pleasant stay and I would not recommend it to anyone.

We've stayed in a lot of hostels and know that you get what you pay for, but we've paid the same for much better hostels! The staff were friendly, and the laundry service was useful, beds were comfortable and linen was clean - that's the good. The bad: the pillows are SO THIN, i looked around and everyone in the...
