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,...

Genuinely disgusting, none of the toilets were suitable for use by a human. The room was horrible, with beams rendering the top bunks almost inaccessible. For the price I'd expect something with much better facilities and finish. Very disappointing!

This hostel is a nightmare. It begins with a rude staff. The bedroom is very small, without ventilation and you have to go everywhere with a piece of paper with the HUGE code to enter the room. Terrible system. There is 3 or 4 toilets for EVERYBODY in the hostel. One in each floor, except the top floor, it has... More

What may have been an otherwise pleasant stay was marred by the fact that the hostel was undergoing refurbishment and the whole place stank of paint fumes. When my friend couldn't stay (i.e. was literally wretching from the smell) they refused to accommodate at all and charged us the full price though we had to book into a different hostel... More

My experience at this hostel was the worst possible. I have no problem with old or classic buildings, but they have to be well maintained. This hostel is old, ugly and very poor preserved. The reception clerk was not very kind or solicitous. The kitchen is filthy and disorganized. There was only one basin toilet per floor (all very dirty),... More

Very good location, maybe 2 min walk from train station and 2 minutes from the Roman Baths. Very affordable, has a nice big kitchen to cook your own meals in and an ok common room. And I actually had a hot shower while I was here unlike some other hostels.

You can't ask for a better location. Very friendly and helpful staff. No place to store backpacks. Only crtique would be the showers are terrible; you have to push a button continuously to keep the water flowing. But, for a short stay, great value. (April 2011)
