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

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.

Thank you for your feedback. We have looked into the issues raised.
