I can't give this property a higher rating as it really does need an update, and i've stayed in much better (recently renovated) YHAs for less. The property is lovely, and set in a fantastic garden (I love the tree), and the staff (as always at YHAs) were brilliant. The bedroom was basic (my friends stayed in the lodge at... More

YHA Salisbury is a older property and it is well located to the cathedral and the medieval town. The property has a big garden with a huge tree in the centre. I walked to the cathedral and around town. This hostel could use a fresh coat of paint, but it was still good enough. The staff was good and I... More

I stayed three nights to attend a cookery programme and visit Stonehenge. It was a good base for both. About 15-20 minute walk to train station. Reception was friendly, but not available all day. The place is, in general, very run down. The bathrooms were adequate but far from the standards of the recently updated YHA properties. The TV room,... More

Thank you for your feedback At the end of April 2015 we are refurbishing some toilets and showers in the main building and this should address some of your comments. We are installing two larger single rooms in the Lodge behind the main house before the summer 2015. More

The hostel is a lovely old house with a veranda running around it & a massive Cedar tree. There's a well equipped members' kitchen, big dining room, & a lots of sofas in the lounge. You'll need to charge phones' etc in the lounge. The staff are friendly. I had a very amusing natter with Tristan one morning while he... More

Thank you for your positive feedback. It is indeed a lovely old house built around 1820 and so is a living antique. We hope to see you again before too long More

Had a great stay here in the spring, it provided good base camp for taking in some of the attractions in the local area. The hostel could do with a little general maintenance but all up has adequate facilities in a historic setting. I would definitely stay again.

Not too much wrong here. A bit basic, but great location and nice building. My bed could have done with a new mattress though and the door to the room only locks by pulling with key. Issues which could easily be solved. The basement area could also do with improving.

Have stayed several times at this Hostel as it is very convenient for a short trip away from home in Devon with miles of footpaths on wonderful scenery all around. The Hostel has a comfortable at-home feeling which is what I so love about hostelling, and the staff have always been helpful and pleasant. Communal rooms are clean and comfortable.... More

A decent hostel. Sure, the carpet’s a bit worn and you don’t want to venture downstairs into the basement, but the 8-bed girls dorm is clean, the kitchen is very well-stocked re cookware and appliances, and the grounds are delightful (think 70s Famous Five). Great location – a five min walk from Salisbury’s main square. 15min walk from train. Do... More

We booked a night, paid the deposit, but before checking in, realized we couldn't make it. Turns out our reason for staying in Salisbury had cancelled. When we found this out, we called before (several times) to try and cancel and no one answered. They charged us the deposit as well as the fee for us all (4 people) staying... More

Thank you for your feedback. I am not too sure of the details of this booking but if you had paid a deposit it is most likely that you made the booking with Booking.com. If this were the case the notice would in fact be 5 days and not as you stated 1 day. However having said that, all terms... More

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
