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)

This place is a difficult one to define. It really depends on what you're looking for. If you're expecting a five star (or one star) hotel, it is not. If you're looking for a bed to sleep in at night and just that, you've come to the right place. There is a kitchen that offers a fridge, stove, tea, coffee... More

Location is the only thing going for this old, dirty and expensive hostel.

Don't stay here, but if you need a place to drop off your stuff for the day, they can watch it for you for 3 pounds. Free if you're a guest. It irritates me when establishments coopt the word "funky" in situations where "decrepit" is more accurate. A really half-assed attempt at decoration - there were a couple of unframed... More

Hostel with all the facilities you need for a shirt stay. Beds and rooms are okay to live in for a few day stay but wouldn't recommend for longer ventures. Kitchen and lounge are nicely decorated and they offer a room that's open 24hr which is nice for late night socialising.

I have stayed in some poor hostels but this one is at the bottom. The bathroom was dirty and shower needed attention each time I went to use it. The room was ok at best. I tried to "get away" from the people in my dorm room at 5 in the morning to use wifi downstairs in the common area... More

The best thing about this hostel is the location, there is very little else good about this place. We were staying in Bath for only one night and I couldn't find any where that didn't cost best part of a months rent for one night so we ended up here. The room was small and cramped, the beds although clean... More
