Staying in a backpackers is always to do with price and since Bath is an expensive place to visit, it can be the only option for some people. On a budget price you have to have budget expectations but this hostel had some major flaws. There were only 3 showers and they were in the basement. Our room was on... More

It's a hostel... We were not expecting anything very fancy and it was just good, we spent 2 nights and we got a 3rd floor room, it was a 10 people room and it was not really a warm weather so I think we got lucky. Expect some noise (in a room with another 9 people) someone surely will get... More

Bath Backpackers is located very conveniently a short walk from the railway station and coach station, right in the city center. However, this is about the only good thing about the hostel. The price was fairly cheap, but I would definitely recommend spending a bit more to get a better accommodation. The dorms are not very nice and there are... More

The wifi here was hardly ever working except early in the morning before every one got on. It had a good kitchen with 2 stoves, many fridges, lots of utensils, but dishes were required to be washed and dried and the tea towels used were often dirty. In our room (Brutus) there was not enough power points and some were... More

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
