With hostels, you have to learn not expect 5 star hotel style and comfort. Consequently, this hostel is not the newest or prettiest, but it's clean, the staff are friendly and the atmosphere is nice.
We stayed in a 10-bed mixed dorm (which was only 2/3 filled). The room was clean, beds reasonably comfortable and everyone in our room was pleasant (and predominantly from Australia or the US!). I loved the common room and communal kitchen (where kitchen utensils etc are provided). I have great memories of bonding with fellow travellers via monopoly in the common room!
This hostel was conveniently located in pretty much the centre of town and close to the train station. We organised a half-day tour with the staff that covered Stonehenge and Lacock (bits of BBC Pride & Prejudice and Harry Potter were filmed here for all you fans out there!) and pick-up was like 100m away.
The only con was really that the showers were down in the basement and we stayed on the 3rd floor. But showers worked well and my fitness improved by walking up and down the stairs.
