We stayed for 2 nights in a twin room. The rooms were clean and the bed linen was lovely and crisp. The decor, as with a lot of hostels, is very tired and in need of some renovation. An effort had been made in the reception area with lovely Christmas decorations but elsewhere a lick of paint wouldn't have gone... More

Thank you very much for your feedback In a building that gets such heavy usage, and of this age there is always maintenance of some kind to be dealt with. We have taken your comments on board and have initiated a repair programme of replacement for the toilets you refer to. Many thanks again More

Stayed at short notice while in the city visiting Very welcoming staff on arrival and informative. Not 5* clean but that wasn't expected. Would defiantly stay again They could do with a heated smoking area, away from the front entrance.

Our family room smelled badly of sweaty feet. The furnishings were very tired, mattresses uncomfortable and carpet dirty. The hostel's location is excellent and the house is beautiful but in dire need of renovation. Breakfast was quite good. Service varied from unprofessional on Reception to good in the breakfast servery. We have stayed in the YHA hostels in Lewes and... More

Last minute trip to the South Down National Park, accommodation was booked quite late and this is one of the very few places that were available. We should have looked further as this is probably one of the worst places ive stayed in. I have stayed in Youth Hostels before but nothing prepared me to this. The room was the... More

Thank you for your feedback. We have looked into the issues raised. The bathrooms are regularly cleaned and don't understand the smell of cigarettes as smoking is forbidden in the building and has been for a number of years now. Like any building of this age there are always maintenance issues to address which we do as soon as they... More

YHA really need to get refurbish this hostel. I never expect much from hostels, a clean bedm a locking door, secure storage facilties, easy 24 hour access to my belongings. Unfortunately this YHA place has problems on all these fronts. The room was relatively clean, but I had to make my own bed, not quite what I wanted to do... More

Thank you for your feedback. The bike shed key is usually stored at reception so that we can monitor the use of the shed and ensure that it is kept locked and secured for all guests. The locks on some rooms have been replaced and this issue has now been resolved. More

We stayed in the Salisbury youth hostel overnight on route to Cornwall and have to say we were very disappointed. My children (very well behaved) found it quite unfriendly and my biggest complaint was the lounge and hallway stunk of cigarettes. The basement looks like a kiddy dungeon and there were no board games. I have stayed in much better.... More

I camped at this hostel for 5 nights and found it to be a very good place to stay. There is room on the lawns for about 10 tents. The site is tidy and safe. The hostel is very handy for the city centre, cathedral, bus and train stations. It took me about 10-15 minutes to walk to the cathedral.... More

Salisbury Hostel has a very pleasant appearance in an elegant old estate-type house on attractive and spacious grounds. Check in was efficient and friendly. The kitchen and lounge areas were very clean. Sadly, while I was there I learned that YHA is planning to sell the building and close this hostel within one year! This seems very strange since, on...
